    Yea. I have learn from past experiences that the more people you know (in nursing school) the better. Its a relief that we get to find out more information about the semester.

    I went on and it let me register for everything but Micro. The nursing department has that saved for students who need it. I did ask the lady in the nursing office why some can registerand others cant and she said the ones that have already registered (march 15 deadline) may not get the classes they picked.

    From what I was told by the dept head is that they have Micro (1 Monday and Weds evening class and 1 Monday and Weds late afternoon class) reserved for nursing students only. You can't even see it on the schedule but it is scheduled. So if you're trying to figure out your schedule you can pencil that in.

    Hi. I will be a second year student at harper college. We were just informed that we are taking the hesi that pertains to the first year curriculum in the fall. We have not recieved any official word that we are taking it at the end of the program, but I assume that we will. It helps the school ensure that whoever takes the NCLEX will most likely pass. The percentage pass rate is a part of accreditation. They need to stay above a certain percentage. And the school receives funding reimbursment from the state or the government for the students that pass the exam. If anyone has any questions about the program I would be happy to answer them. I was in the first cohort of the new curriculum and because of that missed out on scoop about the program. Good Luck to everyone!
