LVN @ Lonestar

Posted

Specializes in (Hopefully one day..) neuro/urology ^.^.

Hello all. :)

I'm thinking of trying to get into the LVN program @ Cy-fair (or any of the other ones!) in spring '11. I've got an A in Intro Anatamy..Does anyone know when I could take the HESI pre-entrance exam?

Also - I'm looking for any information anyone has on the program -

How many do they usually accept? Does Cy-fair have a spring & a fall start? Would you say it's less competetive than the RN program?

I've been through the website over & over lately, but not really finding answers to some of the questions I have.

Thanks. :redpinkhe

& also, I'm currently taking Math 0308, which is the only math required for the program. I took it a few years ago at HCC and made a B in it, but my counselor pushed for me to take it again to freshen up on it. Well, I'm not doing too well in the class (I've put most of my focus on Anatomy & Nutrition) - If I make a C or even a D in it..my other grade won't count, will it? I wish I would have just not retaken it, because I think I'll have to retake it again if I don't pass with a C this time? Eh.

im wondering these same questions.

i took ap1,2 what other classes do i need?

I'm going for the ADN program, but they covered some info for the LVN program at the info session, so I'll see if I can help you out a bit.

At CyFair, the HESI is only available during the application period. The LVN application period is much longer than the ADN, but I think it follows the ADN dates, so I'd try to get it done in that time period. One of the differences between the programs- while the ADN ranking only uses the reading score, LVN uses both.

I have no clue how many they accept, although I do believe it was mentioned at the info session, so someone else may remember. According to the website, there is only a fall start. I'm also unsure as to how competitive it is. If there's only one class per year starting though, it's probably pretty darn competitive.

I would recommend that you go to one of the info sessions; as a matter of fact, they are a requirement at CyFair for application. There are no more for the fall, but they'll likely schedule more for the spring. They're very informative, and if they by chance don't answer all of your questions at first, there's usually time at the end for a Q&A session.

As far as your Math requirement, I believe they take the latest grade, but I might be wrong. I'm pretty sure that a 'C' will still meet the requirement. If not, would it be possible for you to brush up over the holidays and go take the Asset or Compass? I believe that testing into a higher level of math also meets that requirement.

I hope that I helped you a bit. Good luck!!!

Laura, thank you! I'm definitely going to see if I can just test out of it..that would save me having to retake Math 0308 for a third time, lol!!!

Maybe if that is the case then I have a chance of applying for the fall semester, instead of having to wait another year!!

:D
