Interesting, it really depends on the year considering the 12 point difference between the year with a minimum of 80 and then 68. Maybe this year the cut off stays below 80s!

Well I think that the trend increased that much because that was the first year they took away the waiting list so it wasn’t as competitive. I think that the point range will stay in the 76-80 range because it’s really difficult to get anything higher than that even as it becomes more competitive. My score of 84 consists of the A’s I’ve gotten and the previous degree I have and I worked so hard for it. Anyone who has a 90 or above must be in the military or studied an insane amount of time for the HESI

Im hoping to get some federal loans but since I already have a bachelors I'm not sure how much I'll be getting now that I'm considered an independent! I'll be relying on my boyfriend who I'll be moving in with when I move from Washington to cover my daily expenses while with whatever I make from a part time will go to school. Once we figure out if I'm accepted or not I'll look into Scholarships and try to make a plan with a financial advisor. A repayment plan through Pima will hopefully work, but I'll also probably be getting private loans if I have to...

I have a friend who works with NW hospital and she said that they have tuition assistance. I saw that you were asking about jobs in town and that might help? I don’t recall the exact amount, but that’s what she’ll be doing and she’s working per diem 1x/week

Tucson medical center has a tuition reimbursement program so a job at TMC is worth looking into.

That’s awesome! I know that some jobs even outside of healthcare offer various types of assistance/reimbursement.

Oh I forgot that you are out of state! I’m sure that you will still qualify for grants if you haven’t received any. I guess it just depends on how much your parents make (if you provided that info). I’m an independent so I will receive more in funding. If I’m accepted into ASU for the summer I don’t believe that my financial aid will come in time so I will definitely need a private loan. If Pima does a payment program I’m sure it’ll be the same as general tuition so payments would be something like $600 then three payments of $1,800. So still too much for me because I don’t plan on working while in the program. I just wanted to let you know about Pima and their advising. Is varies by person and campus to campus. Some people know absolutely nothing and some know a lot. I’ve been given incorrect information numerous times in the 5 years I’ve gone to Pima.

Have you already taken stats? If not, I would recommend taking it at Pima instead of ASU for the lower tuition. I haven’t taken it yet and will end up doing it this summer. I wanted to do it this semester but.. wanted to take a break from classes more 😜

Thanks @Sbrown22 and @krystina_lee3l'll definitely look in to TMC and NW hospital! I'm hoping yo find per diem but part time would be fine too at least for the first semester.

Yeah I’ve taken stats. It was actually a challenging course. My bf was able to help me with it. The only course I’m taking is CHM130IN. I’ve completed the rest. I don’t blame you I wish I didn’t have to take this one 😞

Really they do? I know TMC does but I thought you had to be employed full time. I’ll look into that thanks so much!

I'm planning on taking stats through Pima over the summer as well! And probably nutrition if I can fit it in to get it out of the way. Technically, I took a biology focused stats course already while doing my degree in Canada but Pima doesn't take international course credit usually 😕 That stats was like 3 years ago though so might be ask for some study tip @rsusco 😅

That’s really too bad they don’t take those credits. I bet it’s basically the same as the one you need to take. I’m not sure if he teaches over the summer but the best professor to take for PSY230 (stats) is Graun KC. I took his class and his tests are open note but still make sure to study. I was able to get an A without studying too much. Yeah definitely let me know if you need help with it. I’ve taken Nutrition as well and professor Holzer is amazing.

Does ASU take international credits? I think technically the stats class is for their BSN program, they just give the option to take it at Pima.

Probably, but it is what it is for now. I did send over my transcripts when I was thinking of trying for their ABSN but they evaluated it as "UPR 226." I would need to talk with an advisor to see if I can get credit for a stats so I might try that if Pima works out.

And thank you for those recommendations! Even if it's not over the summer if hes the better prof I'd wait until Fall too. I'll keep an eye out for Holzer as well.

They do! I mentioned in my response to rsusco my transcript and that particular course was evaluated as "UPR 226" and need to talk to an advisor to see about getting any actual credit. Just going to wait for now until we see how Pima goes.

12-16 days to go 😭
