From what I've read, you are correct. The admissions decision is calculated based on 50% GPA in the 3 science prerequisites, and 50% on the HESI score. I spoke with someone a few weeks ago and learned that JPS Connect is not accepted as insurance, if any are on that. I do not know if getting insurance through a second insurer will disqualify one for this program or not, however.

I need to figure the insurance thing out too since we use a healthshare program. It qualifies for tax purposes but I'm not sure about this.

I don't plan on putting my application in until I retake the HESI again which I already have scheduled. I got a 87.5 and I am not confident with that score so I'm going to retake again now that I've brushed up on my math.

I'm calling the head of the nursing department tomorrow to speak with her regarding the insurance issue and will let you all know what I find out.

Hi

I got an 86 90 92 96 on the 4 sectionss of the Hesi. The reAding section was broken down into subsections, one of which I got a 67% on. It says we need a minimum 75% on each section. Is this just the 4 main or each subsection also?

Grades:

A&p - A

A&p2- A

Micro -A

Hesi a2 overall- 91

Anyone know if we have to have the TB test prior to application? Or is that after the acceptance?

I'm pretty sure its just the 4 sections. Not each subsection.

The TB test requirement is listed under the preadmission requirements, so I think they're due by application time.

I spoke with someone at the admissions office regarding insurance and the TB test. She informed me that a company named E.J. Smith offers basic student insurance coverage that does not take into account pre-existing conditions. It looks to be about $40 a month for me. Regarding the TB test, the woman said that it is not required to apply, but should be done post-acceptance. Also, the 4 sections of the reading comprehension test are not taken into account individually - only the overall score for the section.

I will be applying this application cycle with

A&P 1 = B

A&P 2 = A

Micro = B

And a 90 on my HESI. I am applying for Both Tarrant Nursing and Brookhaven Nursing programs.

Good Luck Everyone!

Hi there! I'm in the program now as well (2nd to last semester - woot!) and am happy to answer any questions :)

Regarding the TB test, the woman said that it is not required to apply, but should be done post-acceptance.

The reason your vaccinations are brought up, is mostly because of the Hep A and B. If your blood work (titer) doesn't show that you are still "protected" (for ANYthing), then you'll need to re-take these vaccinations. No big deal right? Except Hep B and Hep A have to be taken over a time period of 16 weeks and 6 months. That means, if you're accepted to the program and need to retake these vaccinations, you will NOT be allowed to go to clinicals (basically, you'll have to decline your spot). The hospital wants you to be fully vaccinated, and your shots wouldn't be complete in time. The TB test, whether you do it now or later, will need to be redone yearly. It only takes 2 days to read a TB skin test so no worries there!

The portion on the application regarding the vaccines where it asks for signatures. Does anyone know if we're able to just have our regular pcp sign off on them even if we didn't recsive them there?
