    That's what I figured. I had seen on another thread for the last application period for Tomball, NH, and Montgomery that it had taken about that long for them too. I am taking a summer class now and then I will be taking classes in the fall too so I hope that keeps me occupied until letters go out.
    I took the summer off but I'm taking Microbiology and Pharmacology this fall. What are you taking this fall?

    I'm taking Pharmacology online this fall along with a couple of classes for Medical billing and coding. I took Medical Microbiology during the summer I session at Tomball with Dr. ********. He was extremely tough! I bought my micro book brand new and barely used it. Dr. ****** had recommended using Baron's EZ Way to Microbiolgy and it really helped me out.

    I'm taking a (hopefully) really awesome professor for micro...like I had to stay up until midnight when registration opened because her classes go so fast. Lol I'm taking pharm online too.

    Just clarification to my earlier comment. I was referring to the LVN/RN transition. My head has been so buried in that lately, that's all I think of.

    You were correct. The basic 2 year RN program takes 80, the traditional LVN/RN transition takes 40, and the Quest online takes 20. I'm almost 100% positive on those. But who knows...things change around this campus all the time.

    Hi evryone!
    I retook my Hesi today and I am very disappointed! I got 84-Grammar, 90-Comprehension, 90- Math, 96-A&P, and 70- Vocabulary...I know all the vocabularies in the Hesi review book and still failed!!!...They were like 5 vocabulary which came from the book and the rest I have never heard them....does anyone know any information/books that I can use?
    Thank you!!

    I used the Evolve Reach Admission Assesment Review book to study for the HESI. The vocab, though, was kind of tricky because some of those words they threw at you I had never seen before. Lol Are you going to try to retake? Good luck!

    Thanks sapadgett!
    I have the same book, but I guess it wasn't my lucky day. I think I'll have to retake the test again....

    Hi Emahewa,
    Sorry for that but there is always a second chance. I used review books by McGraw- Hill and Teas guide and they were very helfull.

    I am applying next week for the online quest transition program, does anyone have any idea what the min point cut offs have been in the past. Im so ready to get in, I am a LVN right now and work as a in home pediatric nurse nights, so its really nice to be able to study I just hope I make it. Also on the Hesi all my scores where excellent except biology I got a 68% do I have to retake the whole Hesi test even though it doesnt really ask for that grade? On the prereqs sheet it says a 75% in EACH section so does that count? I emailed valarie just waiting to hear back.

    oakleyelyse22, As long as you scored at least 75% in the Reading Comprehension, Vocabulary, Grammar, Math and Anatomy and Physiology sections you should be fine. I don't believe they look at your Biology score. GOOD LUCK!

    Ok, so for the ranking, they only rank based on certain sections of the HESI called the "English Composite Score" which is an average of reading, grammar and vocabulary. However, you DO have to make at least a 75% on ALL sections, including Math and A&P.

    @@ikegrad2002 - A&P and Biology are the same thing.

    The link is below. Hope it helps and good luck!
