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 to find a thread for it.... Read More

    Yes they said we reapply the same way but you don't need to send transcripts again. And it's called Fundamentals Success! I ordered it through Barnes and noble for like $7!

    Well I'm definitely studying the heck out of that fundamentals book! I'd love to hear from you ladies after you take the test, especially about the critical thinking part because that's what I'm worried about the most. I'm also about to get very busy with two mini mester courses so I doubt I'll have much time to study for the hesi when those start.

    When does everyone plan to take the HESI? I have a full load this summer, so I was thinking mid-August.

    I believe the other girls are taking late May, but I am taking late June. Fefe - are you applying for the Spring? The application is due August 15th, and I think HESI scores have to be at the school by that date. When I registered with Elsevier, it only gave me the option to register through June 30th, so that's when I'm taking it.

    Can you take the HESI Exam for one school and transfer the score to another school? For me, I plan on applying to mutliple schools. If I take the HESI for Uthsc Houston, can I get those scores transfer to Prairie View A&M as well. I don't want to take two test that are the same. It will be costly otherwise.

    Yes you can! If you Procter through UTHSC it automatically sends them there, and I believe it costs $15 to send it elsewhere!

    OMG good point! I completely forgot about the due date of 8/15 I've got a bad case of finals brain going on right now lol. So I'm thinking the best time would be in May also. I'm taking a 3-week online Sociology course from 5/13-5/31, but I'm thinking I'll have enough time to study and take the HESI before the summer classes start on 6/3.

    I too have been reading the Critical Thinking book. It seems to be more structured towards students that are in nursing school, but it all seems to rely mostly on common sense. It's the one area I'm most concerned with scoring the highest. Good luck to you all on your exams!

    Oh, and I've got a bit of info that I just received from the registrar that I wanted to pass along. When I started my application, there was an item listed on my To-Do List that stated I needed to submit my TSI score. I had no clue what this was, so I emailed the registrar and they replied back that this is the entrance exam that you take before starting your prereq's and the scoring info would be listed on your transcript, so not to worry about it. So glad that's one less thing I have to worry about!

    I'm taking a 3 week SOCI course from HCC! Is that the one that you are taking too? With Portia Tinnermon?

    I'm taking it online with Daniel Argo. A friend of mine recommended him.
