Lone Star Fall 2021 ADN

Posted

Hey everyone... who all is applying for next fall? Have you taken your HESI yet? What is your score going in? I still have to take my HESI but have an A in A/P 1 and am taking A/P 2 and Microbiology this fall. Also how did you study for the HESI??

Hey! I will applying for Fall 2021 to Long Star. Im taking my courses at CY-Fair. Im also looking into Kingwood nursing program as well. Im a taking A&P 1 right now. Planning on taking Pharmacology and A&P 2 Spring 2021. Im a pharmacy technician of 6 years so Pharmacology should be a breeze for me.  

I did not take HESI as of yet because I want to brush up on my A&P knowledge first. It has been years since I've taken that course. (Im 33 years old ? ) As far as studying for the HESI, I've found different HESI study programs online that are useful.

I was recently told about using nursehub.com for studying have you checked it out ? There’s a code 50foryou to get half off.

I haven’t taken the HESI yet. But I’ve completed all pre req classes with an A, I am BLS certified, and I have all my immunizations. I’m signed up to take Pharmacology online in the Spring through Kingwood with Bloodsaw. HESI is the last thing for me, and then I’ll apply.

 

I just finished an EMT-B class and will be taking the NREMT in January. I’m trying to become a PCT in the ER so I can work during nursing school and have my foot in the door at a hospital. My goal is OR nursing! And then I’d like to eventually get my Acute NP and become a First Assist. 

 

I hope I get into Cyfair so I can finish in 18 months instead of 2 years.

I took it in 2018, and it was moderately easy. Usually people just have one or two subjects they personally struggle with and those should be what you put a lot of your time into. I used the pocket prep app, the elsevier study guide, and found some study facebook groups (can’t remember their names). Ill be using those again to study.

I heard that there are a lot of conversations on the math portion?  Were they easy to get through?

Hi! Does anyone know how it works if I took A&P at a different school where lab and lecture are separate? I got an A in lecture and B in lab, and I'm PRETTY sure it's right if I just plug it into a GPA calc (plus an A in english) and that would be my score out of 4? If that's correct, that + my HESI would give me a 7.508 out of 8, can someone tell me if that's enough to possibly make the cut?
