    I just wanted to say good luck. Make sure u study, not only what they give in class, but a lot of your own too. Also take a look at the current NCLEX pass rates. Also ask about the HESSI exit exam and how most people have to take this over and over just to graduate and sit for the NCLEX. Talk to current and former students so u can be prepared.

    Thanks for the advice. I have looked at NSU's NCLEX pass rates and they were not that high. I also heard about the HESI from my aunt, she has to take it again in order to be considered a graduate of the program and to be be able to sit for her NCLEX. I unfortunately will be unable to attend NSU to certain circumstances however I will be attending Hampton University's VA Beach campus for their nursing program. What school did you attend for your nursing education?

    Hey Determined,

    HU's Va Beach program is an accelerated 3 year BSN program, may take you about 2 1/2 years depending on what you have completed so far. I was told to come in as a transfer student you had to have at least 15 transferable credits and also it is recommended to have your sciences completed as well as your communications class. Also you need to have a good GPA. Here is a list of the course equivalency chart to see if what you have taken will transfer:

    They have a good NCLEX pass rate from what I have seen on the VA Board of Nursing website. As far as cost, they are considerably cheaper than the main Hampton campus and you can apply for an additional grant called the VTAG in addition to your Pell Grant which will help bring down costs. Like I have posted before I will be starting there in the Spring and I think I have picked a good program. If you have any additional questions or need anything else, let me know .

    Also here is a link to their curriculum:
