    hi all!

    i am planning to enroll @ pv spring 2012. anyone apply while being an lvn? on-line i saw the methods of teaching lvn's and non-nursing students varies while in the program. just wondering if anyone knows. i have also heard assignments are really hard and lengthy, any one have any advice? i just need to know the work load, difficulty and days or rotations during the program. if anyone could help i would be really grateful. also i saw on previous posts first come first serve is that right?

    i think nursing school period is lots of hardwork and dedication. yes its difficult but you have to study, study study. that's all i did this summer. you build your own schedule bc of the classes. im not an lvn but from what i heard they go in at 2nd or 3rd semester one of those. and do almost the same thing.

    Yes you need to take speech and computer before applying or you can do it while you are taking this classes in the fall. DO not take any science classes in the fall, make sure you are all done with them. Because that will just keep you from getting in bc they look at it as those are hard classes and people can fail. the GPA cut off is 2.75, the Hesi exam stuff you can find on the website www.pvamu.edu/nursing go to prospective students. Its the HESI we take now. You can find the study book for hesi at the PVAMU College of Nursing store in med center.

    well only 100 out of 400 people get accepted into the program and they do go by first come first serve. I go to school with some who got in on a 2.80 GPA and a score on the Hesi of an 81%. But she turned in her stuff in December to attend in the fall. Get it in early to hopefully secure your spot. Also don't forget to send them like a class schedule with a statement that you are taking this class.

    What did you get the second time around on AP2? Yeah you do, don't repeat too many courses bc they don't like that. Also the cut off for Hesi is 75% on all sections.

    can u tell me how many schools did u apply to???,, i have applied to utmb but they require an additional science and i would have to take that in the fall ...... i was looking to apply to twu but they require u to take stats before u can apply which sucks because i will have all of their prereqs besides that one class!!! i also have an associates degree in the arts so i am really hoping i get accepted to pv ..... i may apply at uthouston and lamar in beaumont but i will have to retake the hesi because those schools require sections that pv did not require me to take......



    oh and someone wanted advice for studying for the hesi and i will say buy the hesi review book and get the anatomy for dummies.... i over heard a girl say this just two days before i took my test and i got an 84 on th ap sect .... 88 on reading comp .... 96 of the math ..... i know this scores arent increbile but i was very please with them and it was my first time take the hesi entrance exam
