Just took the HESI exam for St. Pauls in Staten Island

Posted

Hi everyone. I just took the HESI exam for St. Pauls in Staten Island on October 7th, 2010. Okay, so far I passed the exam and now I am waiting to see if I get accepted into the Nursing Program for the Spring 2011. Is anyone else in the same boat?

So, nervous here. I want this so badly.

Hey , i also took the exam on the same day you did and i also passed . Now i am waiting to hear back from them. Have you read anything about the school? I been hearing things that are not so great .. i just dont know who to believe... if you have any information on the school i would really like to hear about it.

Well all I know is that so far everything is going good. I have read previous blogs and people talk about how the admission reps and people at the school tend to be nasty. But with my experience thus far it seems good. I have really enjoyed the application process. I havent had problems at all what so ever. All I can tell you is dont let people influence your decision. Create your own judgement.

Btw, did they tell you when we are suppose to hear if we were accepted into the school? I also have been hearing things about the school having two sets of classes. One morning and one afternoon, do you know anything about this?

Hi , i actually still need to send them my transcriped from one school and i think after they have all the info it takes about 2 weeks. In reference to am and pm classes yes i asked they have morning 9 am to 3 pm classes and 4:30 to 11pm .

I am just worried about that ppl are saying that they kick out alot of ppl during the fist semester and that the program is really hard because the prof are not that good and they expect alot from the students. also the class is 70 ppl and thats alot ... I just dont wanna get into something were they care about $$ more then their students if you know what i mean...

I know what you mean.

It all depends on the individual I think. If you do what you have to do and take time to study you are going to be fine. In the case of people dropping out, I think some people can't do it or they are not taking the time to study. That is just my opinion. My boyfriend said the same thing when he did nursing. But he was like as long as you do what you have to do you are going to fine.

And I didnt know about the class size being that big. Wow! But at least they are giving people a shot of going to nursing school, because I know that trying to get admitted to the College of Staten Island nursing school is very hard and some people just dont make it. They tend to place you on a waiting list. At least with this school one has a better chance of making it.

BTW, How do we know what program we applied to? Meaning how do we know if we applied for the AM or PM class? I really want this so badly. I'll do whatever it takes to become an RN.

hey , from what i understand the morning gets filled up faster then the evening and if they have spots available you can choose if not they give you the evening program . i feel like with the evening program you also have the ability to work as well. have you applied to other programs if you don’t mind me asking?

The only other program I have applied to was the College of Staten Island (Nursing) and it's so hard to get in. I was also looking into Beth Israel. How about you?

I really don't mind morning or evening as long as I get into the program. lol. I am just dying to find out if I made it into the program. I don't like the idea of waiting. It's driving me insane. lol

i recently called the school and they said that they have not looked at the applications yet. meaning, they are reviewing the applications of everyone that took the hesi before us and once they get a stack load again is when they start reviewing new applications. have you heard anything yet so far about acceptance. it has been a week and i am going crazy waiting. lol

hey, no i didnt get anything from them as of yet. I hope we get some news soon , i hate waiting!

Btw did you take the NLN exam? if so how was that? I hate the fast that schools have dif exams

that they want us to take in order to apply. :rolleyes:

No I haven't taken the NLN. But yeah it does suck that every school has a different exam. I know that the College of Staten Island you need to take the NLN and it's very hard. Sorry I couldn't be more useful. From what I remember the NLN has Anatomy and Psy/medical dosage etc.

Hi~

I am going to take this exam within two weeks

How was the reading and vocabulary section?

The reading and vocabulary was pretty easy. It's basic reading comprehension and some nursing terminology. As long as you study the HESI review book you should be fine. The little hints they give you in the review book are like so helpful. Memorize the HESI hints are you will def. pass. :)

Since english is not my first language, so I am a little bit worried about the vocabulary section. Is it enough to just study the vocabs from HESI review book?

I recommend b/c your first language is not english to def use the review book and study sentence structure and using the right vocabulary. For example, the difference between the word, among and between, there and their stuff like that. When it comes to the nursing vocabulary, def. study the vocab section. When I took the exam most of the terms where from the book. You do however have terms that are not in the review book. But for the most part is pretty straight foward.

hey , just to answer your question- the exam has 1 part math 55 questions, 3 parts english each 55 questions . THe total amount of time they give is 4 hrs but you will probably finish earlier .

Hey , how are ya? i just wanted to tell you that i called the office today and they said " we send out a lot of things out this week and the rest will be next week so you will probably fiend out by the end of next week" . I still did not get anything in the mail .... How about you, any news?:clown:

Did you take the Hesi exam on October 7th? Cause they told me they are reviewing the applications of the people that took the exam before I did. Once the letters get sent out they will start reviewing the other batch or something like that.

Good LUCK !!!
