    I, too, will be applying in September for the Spring start. I've taken the HESI, but will be retaking it since I didn't take it at Brookhaven the first time. I'm looking forward to getting that done so I can check it off my list! I'm just ready to get everything in and get things moving! Good luck to you!

    I just love this website! I love to read about each persons journey to being a nurse (pre-req, hesi, total points earned, application, interview, acceptence, etc). I will be applying to Brookhaven's nursing program in the fall of 2013 for their spring 2014 class. I come here to get tips from former/current applicants and to find out what I need to pay attention to most to get accepted in the program. So best wishes to everyone on starting the program and to those who have completed the program!

    Keep those comments and tips coming!

    I will be applying to start in the spring as well! I have already taken the HESI for practice last semester and got a 93.. When calculating the points for your HESI score, is it just the difference between 74 and what we scored?

    I am extremely nervous to apply for spring semester, I heard our points need to be higher because they are excepting fewer people, anyone know if this is true? I've taken most of the support courses except dosage and micro.

    Good luck to all of us and I'm glad you made this thread so we can all keep in touch throughout the process!!

    Jamie Texas it's the difference of 75 and what your HESI score is. I just attended an information session today and they said only 40 students are accepted in the Spring! So hopefully you're one! The speaker also said a lot of the students dont have the Dosage & EOL classes so you should be fine.

    Thank you nursechoice! Did they mention anything about the point system with the Spring semester being a smaller group? I have heard rumors that 31 is pretty much the minimum for spring! Pressure!!

    @Jamie Texas yes, he said to be competitive you need at least 31 points for spring acceptance.

    I love this website too. I'm trying to get my courses completed so I can apply in Spring 2013 to start Fall 2013. I'm in the process of taking Micro this semester (I actually start tonight) and I want to take the HESI to see how I'll do for my first go around this semester too. Good luck to everyone applying this semester, and I'll be around to get as much info as possible from you all.
