    The orientation answered a lot today but dang there are a lot of expenses for the first semester. That hesi exam is reall $300?? For a test that u just take once?

    From my understanding you take that Hesi a few times throughout the program. Ms. ******* kept saying once they figure out our testing plan, they'll know the cost. It is very expensive. If you're not using financial aid, the uniform is about $20 cheaper on the dove uniform site. I used amazon for my books because it saves me some $$

    I never once used the TCC bookstore for a nursing program textbook...I was able to get them all from Amazon.com or BN.com. As long as you can get the ISBN number--or at least the book's title and edition number--you'll be fine ordering outside of the bookstore.

    Just wanted to let you all know, at orientation Ms. ******* said it would take two weeks for our major to switch to nursing, but it has switched already and you can sign up for the first class. After the enrollment form is processed, we'll be able to sign up for Nur 130. Have a good weekend.

    For those that went to orientation last week, did ms ******* say that the people who never took the hesi would be required to take it by the time classes start? If so, how long would it take?

    I don't remember her saying that. I thought she said some students were exempt because they met other requirements, but you may want to email her or Ms. ****** to be sure. I know Ms. ****** said after a certain date this month, she wasn't going to be program head anymore.

    I don't think so because if you hadn't taken the HESI then you would not have been allowed to enroll in nursing program and also if you had nursing diagnostic test then you don't require HESI(this is applicable till this fall semester).
