    So, for the score sheet, the part that asked about English and A&P, anyone know how that works?? Is it the points you earned toward your GPA? Both classes got a B, so thinking about retaking one, but idk which!?

    It averages the GPA for only the A&P and ENGL class. So if you got a B in both classes your score would be a 3. Then take your average of your HESI and divide that by 25 and that will be the other half of your score. If I were you I would retake engl. I retook it in Summer I And it was super easy, I made an A. The average score that gets accepted into ADN is above a 7. Some get accepted with less than 7 but it's off the alternatives list. You may still have time to catch up on a summer II class. I'm not sure you may want to call an advisor.

    If I were you I would retake both classes if you're wanting to apply at lonestar "/ its sooo competitive. Allll nursing programs are. Even if you retook one of the classes for an A and got a 95 on the hesi, you would still only have 7.3 points "/ it's hard to get a 95 on the hesi though.

    If you titer comes out that you do not have immunity to hep B, then you have to repeat the vaccine series which is 3 shots and that takes 7 months. You can submit your titer with your first shot on the application, but the full series must be completed before school starts in January. There is an accelerated series which takes a month I believe. If you go back a few pages I posted a list of clinics that offer it. Just call and ask if they do the accelerated hep b vaccine.

    I believe only twice! I'm not a hundred percent sure. But I do know they are suppose to be 60 days apart!

    I would not retake either unless you plan on only applying to Lonestar's nursing program. Schools do look at how many retakes you have especially if it was a science/major pre-req.

    Im curious to know which school has issue with retakes. I have not heard that.

    I don't know about Lonestar, but I know many BSN programs that do take retakes into account. That is not to say that you won't get into a program because you repeated 2-3 courses. There are lots of schools that replace the higher grade and don't take the first attempt into account. However, schools like UTMB only allows applicants to retake 2 pre-req courses. If more, then you're not able to apply. UTHSC also looks into how many classes you retake. They do take the higher grade of a class you retook, but both attempts are calculated into your overall gpa. It's just something to keep in mind because nursing programs are competitive.

    Don't hold me to this...but I think it's 3x. You can only take the hesi 3x a year for lonestar. This is what the lady told me at the testing center, but I'm trying to look on the website and I'm only seeing that it says you have to take it every 60 days...idk if that means you can do it an unlimited amount of times as long as it's 6" days apart.

    For the high school diploma/ged section, did you guys scanned your diploma or got an unofficial transcript of your high school and uploaded it?
