hello I had a question about the books for people already in the program. So do people really get cut out the program if you don't pay the $3000 before the first day of school?. I got with financial aid and I would get only $1000 for books and private loan money would come later on in the semesters. what do new students typically do?

@Tessyodidi123 I also have the same question. I asked a student at the train station and she basically told me we were on our own. She said a grant covered her books. Hopefully someone knows something. Also, I applied for financial aid, but they will not move forward until the program of study is changed (which the program said THEY would do). Hoping they add the clinical to the schedule and do so ASAP.

@babysplash hi again! As the time gets closer to my first semester, I’m getting so anxious! I see you’re in your third semester. Any advice for a first semester student and what to expect ?

Hey! Sure thing! Learn time management! If you're already good with using your time wisely, you're in a good place. It's a lot easier said than done though. Try to stay ahead with your assignments - complete quizzes, and practice skills ASAP (you will get access to a skills sheet for skills check offs). Stay organized - use a planner weekly or monthly to stay on track with assignments as get as ahead as possible. Study the topics you hate/don't understand FIRST and in depth - if you avoid it, you will never understand it and then subsequently miss any test questions about it. Use supplemental resources like Youtube, Saunders (NCLEX/HESI) prep booked and Elsevier HESI/NCLEX prep books - these will be helpful for the end of semester HESI a lot of my classmates used the red HESI book and said it helped. Most of these books come with online access that has practice questions.  Also, if you have some extra cash - I recommend using yourbestgrade.com - they are HESI style questions that you can take and you can select the subjects like fundamentals, med/surg, the nursing process, pharmacology etc. Hope that helps!

Yes, this was very informative and helpful! I’m that student that loves to be ahead and study ahead so I don’t see that being a problem for me. But I will need to adjust to the style of the test. So do we get practice questions for lecture exam material ? Also do you have any old notes you would be willing to share? It’s ok if not I heard it’s helpful seeing other students notes. What is the exact name of the red HESI book?

Perfect! No, you don't get any practice question for lecture from faculty. You will need to use supplemental materials and the books to get questions. Since the test is written by faculty I'd rather not share any of my notes to avoid any academic issues. The HESI book is called HESI comprehensive for review or something similar. If you google "red HESI book" it'll pop right up
