    Thanks for your advice, greatly appreciated. I will be taking the exam next month, I have not yet started reading the HESI textbook but I have been taking practice exams online.
    Thanks again I will do my best to follow your tips.

    There is no physics on the exam, and I heard chemistry is just some basics questions. Someone told me he got one chemistry question, that was all. Good Luck!

    Hey! The only subjects on the exam are Math, Reading Comprehension, A&P, & Critical Thinking... what you read on Lehman's website is correct.

    Those of you in the program now, can anyone share their experiences about the course load, quality of instruction, likes, dislikes, clinicals? I would very much appreciate it. Thanks!

    Hey CN101,
    this is a super late reply but the general education from is given to you from a regular academic advisor, I made an appointment with them to get it.
    Is this form needed if you have a bachelor's degree in another field?

    I'm a current student. There is no handholding and the program is very fast. For instance, we're about to finish med-surg now when the generic students are only halfway through their med-surg course. So you do have to be very self-motivated and disciplined.

    The clinicals are what you make of them. You have no control over what kind of clinical instructor you have, but you can seek out stuff to learn yourself, ask intelligent questions of the staff, and be helpful.

    Personally, I think the first semester was the most difficult because you're taking fundamentals, which is an entirely new type of test-taking, and you're also taking pharm and patho. Those are all content-heavy courses, and there is no getting around them. The winter semester is a "break" in that you're just taking psych and possibly community if you didn't take it already (take it this summer at the latest, trust). Spring you take med-surg, which is a lot, but the other two courses are less about content, more about writing papers. So I have actually found this semester easier academically, but tiring because you switch to two clinicals/week.

    There are obviously pros and cons. You are literally going twice as fast as generic students, so you don't have time to do anything else--some generic students work as CNAs and do externships, so they're building their networks. As an accelerated student, you're just toiling away in the library keeping afloat. But in August when they're coming back to school for their senior year, you are done!

    No, it is not.

    Hi,
    Ive read many posts/comments that say if you have good GPA and HESI you have a high chance of being accepted into Lehman (My GPA is 3.8 and HESI 92). I am a bit confused though because it seems that only about 30 or so students are accepted into accelerated and generic. I am sure they get hundreds of applications each cycle. Does a high GPA and HESI score really mean you get accepted? Are there any other stats that they consider??

    About 24 students get accepted into the accelerated program while about 100 (probably more) get accepted into the generic program. The other stat that they look at is the Critical Thinking Score, which they prefer 850+.

    Great thanks for the info! I underestimated the number of generic program students. That seems to make more sense now. So, with a 3.8 pre-req GPA, 92 on HESI with 870 CT score, I should have a high chance of being accepted?

    I would believe so! Good luck!
