Hey! The program is excellent. If you get accepted into the program, you will love if as am doing now. They work with you and make sure you understand your concept as a Nurse. Hesi A2 is not bad, you just have to prepare for it and you will be okay.

I'm happy I came along your post because I think I can help you with this. When I was preparing to take my HESI A2 entrance into Chamberlain I was really worried because I wasn't familiar with Anatomy. So I spent a lot of my time trying to go over planes and different things along those lines. I also was stressed about Biology and Chemistry because its been a while since I took those classes, however no need to worry about any of those! Yes, I said it what you score on those sections DO NOT MATTER. It doesn't get counted with your score.

To be completely honest with you, what you need to focus on is: MATH, GRAMMAR AND READING. When it comes to math, theres a lot of ratios, and basic addition problems. Don't think that it's simple and its something you just simply overlook especially ratios because they can be a bit tricky at times. Another big thing that you should take time to study is roman numerals because there are a lot of problems regarding roman numerals. So focus on those type of problems when you're studying. Grammar is also a big tricky so make sure you read the HESI A2 books grammar sections very carefully. Lastly, reading overall is pretty simple just take your time. Understand what they ask you when it comes to main ideas and topic sentences. You'll do fine! Don't stress yourself out about it, its very simple and easy.

I think the program is good, I've been here for almost a year now and overall I like the school a lot. They really care about their students and the SUCCESS of the students, unlike some professors at universities. Only down side about the program is the money. $$$$$$$$$. It gives you a run for your money I can tell you that! Feel free to ask any other questions about the Hesi and school in general, I'm more than happy to help you :) Best of Luck.

Hi TXNursingStudnt!

I'm about to apply to Chamberlian. I took the HESI before and scored 88% overall but Chamberlian wanted me to take it on their campus. So I'm getting ready to take that within the next 10 days.

I meet all the minimum requirements, but not competitive GPA wise. The good thing is that I know every application is reviewed on a case to case basis. I'm praying that I get in!!! Could you share with me the application process and how it went, what to expect, etc. Just anything to get my hopes up, please!!! :)

Figenctn,

I submitted my application the end of April and I also took my HESI the beginning of May. I'm hoping the decision will be made tomorrow (Friday) as to whether I got in or not.

My application was an interview/discussion with friendly staff. At that time we discussed the transcripts, completed application paperwork and toured the campus. We then scheduled a convenient time for me return to take the HESI.

The applications appear to be reviewed and decided upon every couple of weeks.

Well unlike Janacc my application process went a lot different. I didn't have an interview and one day received a call that I was accepted. It was a simple for me due to the fact that I didn't have any transferring credits.

Hey! I am currently a student at the pearland campus and what i would recommend is definitely memorize the roman numerals and the conversion factors (ex: grams to kilograms).

Thanks for the advise. My main concern is the chemistry portion. How was that?
