I have no idea. I don't think it takes much. I think u have to have very low income. I only earned a little over 7grand in 2010 (bc I got my job closer to the end of the year) and I was able to receive it for 2011. But if u find out lemme know.

Hey you guys I have a question:

I brought the HESI exam booklet to study and practice. I just wanted to know what areas should I concentrate more on?

Definitely fractions and ratios - that was pretty much the entire math portion! :p

Chem / anatomy / biology wasn't bad - I did really well and haven't taken chem or biology since high school lol English and Grammar - things like apostrophe and comma placement, spelling - it's not too bad, focuses mostly on making sure the sentences are structured right.

Good luck!

I really like it. I started with the first class in April and so far so good. I haven't started clinicals or any of the more involved nursing classes yet. The staff and the whole admission process was super smooth. I can say that now, but I did stress over every detail. The Hesi, the acceptace phone call, the financial aid, the classes...

If you have anything more specific just let me know. I will answer as best as I can.

nic30, Do you feel like it's worth the money you are paying? I know this campus is not fully accredited until the first class passes the NCLEX. Have they said anything on this that is good info for us? I'm glad to hear you like it. I go in tomr for the tuition and stuff. I am pretty nervous to hear the final price. Any advice you can give is so appreciated!! Thanks :)

the price is steep, i will admit but the one-on-one attention you get from student services is incomparable. i have attended large institutions where you get lost in the crowd and have to figure things out on your own. here, they literally handle everything for you. all you really have to do is concentrate on your classes (whew, they are not easy). your schedule is lined up for the duration of your time there, you get emails on scholarships, registration, clinical compliance... the equipment is state of the art. i am struggling to pay the tuition since i have a previous degree but i totally think it's worth it. iwould take the prereqs at a community college though. i wouldn't spend a fortune on those since you don't have to. i didn't have any problems with my courses transferring...

Nic30,

I have a question for you or anyone else that can answer it. After you take the Hesi and make a passing score, What's the next step? I've came across some posting where I read about the "waiting game", Is that when the waiting to hear about your acceptance begin or you have other things to complete after passing the test?

Thanks for the info nic30. I have some prereqs done, but there are some I will still have to complete. So, are you taking all federal loans out to pay you tutition? I can't believe that the interest rate is 6%. I was so thinking it would be a lot lower than that.

HassonBFuture, your advisior should be calling you any time now to let you know if your accepted. Then they will set up a time to meet with them. I think they call me 2 or 3 weeks after I took the hesi.

Once you take the Hesi they take a few weeks to call you but once you're accepted that's pretty much it. You will start to get set up for the semester that you enter. Did you get your Hesi scores?

I am pretty much maxed out on federal loans so I am working on getting a private loan and paying out of pocket.
