Definitely :) my name is Marta -- excited and anxious for orientation. A girl I know from my gym graduated last May from the program told me she was ready to quit after their orientation so that should be fun haha. & I haven't heard anything further from Bergen but I got an email from the background check company with the results on Friday. I submitted mine on 4/17 though so give yours another day or 2 and I'm sure you'll hear back.

Hi. Quick question. Do they only use the English and science GPA or the whole GPA?

They used to use just the English and science now they are using cumulative GPA.

Hi guys. I'm gonna be applying for the Fall 2018 nursing program when I finish my prerequisites. Anyways, I thought Bergen wanted us to take the HESI entrance exam but is it actually the TEAS we have to take?

Yes Bergen no longer uses the HESi exam. It is now TEAS version 6 made by ATI. The bookstore at Bergen sells the practice workbooks.

Ugh. Spending so much on books hurts .. it's so awful. & Where did you do your CPR? I was certified already but of course it's expired so I need to take care of that ASAP.

I don't think they gave an official list of the books we need yet except for Fundamentals of Nursing I which we need to bring with us for orientation. The book is by Judith Wilkinson & it's 3rd edition. I found it on amazon & rented it for 16 bucks.

& @ pureanea thanks for the info! def gonna look into that place :)
