UTHSC Traditional BSN Spring 2014 Applicants - page 10

I have seen many threads for previous applicants for past semesters to the UT Houston School of Nursing. I wanted to start one myself as I am applying for the spring 2014 traditional BSN and have yet... Read More

    Honestly, I didn't think any section was TOO difficult but my worst one was math. I think I just freak out with ANYTHING to do with math and that's probably the ONLY reason I didn't do as well on that portion.

    I took my HESI yesterday!!!

    Reading Comp - 96
    Math - 100
    Vocabulary - 100
    Grammar - 98
    Anatomy - 100
    Critical Thinking - 910

    I was happy with my scores, and I studied A LOT!!! There were even questions on the test that I would have gotten wrong if I didn't study up until the minute when I walked into the testing center (well actually I sat on the floor near the lockers going through vocabulary flash cards!).

    Advice:

    - Study the vocabulary flash cards on quizlet! There were a few many words on the test that came off of that list. It is very much worth it to memorize.
    - Math: lots of fractions, ratios, percents.
    - Anatomy: I used Barron's EZ Anatomy and Physiology to study. It's a big book, but easy to understand and lots of practice.

    HOWEVER, Elsevier messed up and gave me the retest instead of the original. I'm in the process of figuring out what to do now!!!

    You guys are TOO KIND. Seriously though, I did submit my application, but it was for summer, not for spring. I want to apply for Spring, but I think that because of my job, I won't be able to enter until summer, so looks like I won't be with you guys...

    I took the HESI the same day. My application status still shows that my HESI scores need to be submitted. On my HESI score report it reflects that my scores will go to "UT Health Science Center - Houston - BSN DIstance Test". I guess I'll give them a call on Monday. This is very discouraging. Has anyone else had a problem with their scores being sent over?

    Mine still show as "initiated" on my to-do list. I took mine June 9th. I'll shoot them an email tomorrow & let you guys know what they say.

    Just give them a call! One day I called and asked a question about something not about the hesi and she was like "let me go ahead and update all your info". At that time I had taken the hesi but it was still on my to do list and I was thinking it might take them awhile to enter it in, but as soon as I got off the phone with her all my to do's were instantly taken care of and I got sent a transcript eval nothing after that. I'd just call! It seems to be the fastest way to reach them.

    *arobbins2020 - Thats interesting to know, that you took the test on the same day. I hope they update your status here soon. I don't know how they go about updating, the information, but it can be very nerve racking.....

    I'm applying for the Accelerated BSN Program in the Summer. I know this is for traditional, but it's the most relevant discussion for this school that I have come across. I have to deal with a lawyer before I can be comfortable about my application; however, as it stands:

    I have a BS - Biology 2010 w/ Spanish Minor

    HESI:
    94.86% total
    95.2% for UTHSC requirements
    100 reading, 94 grammar, 94 vocab, 92 biology, 96 chemistry, 92 a&p, 96 math, 900 critical thinking.
    3.68 gpa with a few courses other pre-requisites to complete

    Where else are you guys/gals applying to? I moved to Houston this year and I have no idea where to start.

    ** I took all the sections on the HESI (Chemistry, bio, etc.) with the exception of Physics. Should I have not taken all of these?

    Also, I need to call them as well because my current status on the UTH website is "Initiated" for everything.

    Does anyone know if they require fingerprints and the background check to be completed prior to receiving notification of acceptance?

    I know this is the case with HCC, which I also applied to and took the TEAS (95th percentile national, 99th for institution...not relevant here, but whatever).
