Bergen Community College Nursing Program Question - page 3

Last Thursday I was at the college for the purpose of collecting my Chemistry grade with some classmates. Apparently, there was a graduation ceremony for RN's going on that night as well, and my... Read More

    woa its really not that serious! fisherman

    i know i was reading allnurses moments before taking my hesi and i know any small detail could help and throw anyone off. i hope u do keep helping others in this post regardless of how i hurt ur feelings. i know there are many grammatical errors in these sentences, but i found studying for the hesi useful. i learned a lot about the english language in the hesi practice book, and i just wanted to share that. i attend an ivy league institution currently, and i didnt even know the difference between ig or whom and i honestly just wanted to help. above i even said please dont take it personal. too bad u did-hope people could be honest with u in the nursing field and u r ready to accept some critizism or hurtful words..bcus u will need to man up a lil more.

    anyway good luck to everyone goin to bergen. i really enjoyed taking prereqs there and would have liked to do my nursing there as well. Too bad i missed the deadline.

    so like i said, it was only to give that person a quick review. i myself have more important things to worry about, like graduating in two weeks, finishing up a 60 page thesis, and several other 10 page papers..while also keeping up a good grade on really tough stats..and waiting to hear back from all these nursing schools...its a lot to do and i am very stressed...

    Hi tdag90,
    I think you did good in the exam. They base the score from TOP 90's student. Can you tell me what are some of the questions ask in Chemistry? How long did you take the exam? Can you give me some tips in some of the questions? I will really appreciate it.

    They take scores from the top 90 students(1189 took it last year). I heard(but did not confirm) that someone got in with a 79 last year, but that does not really ring true. My professor mentioned that a 92-94 would secure a is all conjecture. I will say this, it will be more competitive than last year because 1.)enrollment in the school is up 30%, and 2.)this is the second year they are giving the Hesi A2, so more students know what to study by now and have more resources to do well. I personally think the way they do the admissions is really shady (GPA is not a factor as long as you have a 2.5, and I have heard of two students getting in because they "know someone"). So if I do not get in, I have a contingency plan. Good luck, and I hope to see you in the fall

    Well my accumulative score is an 87.5, and so far the class average is a 69.

    Hey MMR486... Sure I can give you some tips.

    I feel bad to say this but I can remember so much about the exam except the chemistry portion which was what brought me down from the A average I was hoping for. The math, I can tell you, is VERY basic, know your fractions, division/multiplication, addition and subtraction and your percents. English, very basic too. Did you get the HESI Admissions Assessment Review book? A lot of people were unhappy with it, however, it is VERY helpful for the math and english portions. I personally, am so happy I bought it! I also found it to be very helpful for the biology section.
    The exam is around four hours, I took about two and a half. It wasn't TOO bad, I'll say that. Make sure you have a good breakfast and give yourself time to get there. It def. will help. and good luck.

    They also assess your personality and learning style.

    tdag, where would I find the class average? And it looks like you did pretty well
  10. by   msfutureRN20
    Well the class average is located on the homepage of the Evolve Reach Testing and Remediation website. Did they send you any e-mails yet about your scores? If so, go to the website and log in to your account, if you do not have an account create one. Once you create one you can look at the left of the homepage and click where it says "my content, and then Reach testing and Remediation"..... when you go there, you'll see your scores compared to the average scores...

    I take the exam on Friday, so I will wait until I complete the exam to register on the website. Thank you for the info

    tdag90: I'm having trouble accessing the Reach testing and Remediation portion on the Evolve Reach Testing and Remediation website. Would you mind copying & pasting the current class averages for each subject? I just saw someone was nice enough to do it on a previous post, but it was for last years group. I've taken the Hesi and I'd love to see how I faired. Thanks, I really appreciate it!!

    Well, just so you know they no longer show the class average for EACH individual subject... now it has changed to the class average overall and I can't seem to find the other averages that they displayed for me about a week ago. BUT I did print the averages right after I took my test, which was about a week ago.

    The averages are:

    Math: 86
    Reading Comprehension: 82
    Grammar: 84
    Vocabulary: 74
    Chemistry: 71
    Biology: 68
    Anatomy: 20!!
