    Lone Star Fall 2020

    The Cy-Fair program offers the 2 year program in the fall along with the other campuses. The one and a half semester program is only offered in the Spring. Kingwood is the only other program offered in the Spring, however, it’s the full 2 years.

    That’s a great score! I’m sure you’ll get into the program. The cut off last application was a 7.3 overall so unless it bumped super high I’m sure you’re good. Montgomery’s cut off was a 7.6 so if you’re putting Montgomery as your first choice you may want to retake the HESI, however, I think you’ll get into Tomball or North Harris.

    Also, if you have had the series and your titer is negative you need proof that shows you had the original 3 vaccines AND at least the first “booster” of the next series.

    I would call your doctor and ask if you have had the series, if you have already had them go ahead and get the quantaitive titer. If you haven’t had the series or if the titer is negative then yes, there is an “accelerated series” that takes 2 months. The CDC recommends the 6 month process, however, if you’re crunched for time the 2 month series works just as well. My titer came back negative the first time and my doctor gave me an accelerated boost that a few other nursing students received and it made me immune for the next titer. I would definitely call and ask your doc tho, that’s so important since the nursing department really only cares about the positive titers. If you’ve already had them and you’re immune there’s no sense in getting poked some more.

    Were you vaccinated for Hep B when you were younger? Or is this your first time getting the immunizations?

    You will for sure get into your campus of choice. I’ve heard the best reviews from Tomball, Montgomery, and North Harris. If you still want a “life” outside of the program I’ve heard North Harris is the way to go. Montgomery and Tomball are more cut throat but they both have higher NCLEX scores. I believe that Montgomery is the “hardest” out of all the campuses but most of their students succeed. Tomball and Cy-fair are good programs but both are very disorganized. Tomball’s orientation was literally a week before classes started so students were crammed to get everything ready in time for the program. I’ve heard with Tomball and Cy-fair you just need to learn to be lenient and don’t expect everything to be organized.

    I’m also debating between Montgomery and Tomball as my first choice. I’ve heard Montgomery is the hardest campus in general and not just to get into the campus. I’ve also heard the same about Tomball. I’ll be grateful if I get into any campus but I’d like to weigh the options before applying.

    Thank you for letting us know. Congrats on getting in! With how competitive it keeps getting do you think that my 7.632 score is good enough? I was thinking about retaking the HESI to raise my 90.8 but I’m worried about the score dropping.

    Maybe I miscalculated then. You should still apply, that’s a great score for the HESI.

    I just calculated what your score would be if you got a 95 on the HESI, an A in English and a B in A&P and it would be 6.8 out of 8 which is what Lonestar uses as their score system. That’s the same score I had applying last application. The lowest score that any of the campuses took last application was a 7.3 and that was as an alternate. The scores just keep getting higher which is unfortunate. The other thing is if you were take A&P again in the spring, the application deadline closes in April so they can’t take your spring score even if you were to get an A. Luckily there’s 2 campuses that are open for the spring semester and there aren’t as many applicants. I hope this helps some.

    With how competitive the program is it’s pretty much impossible to get in with a B in A&P. I thought I could get in with a B last application period (I got denied) so I had to retake it this fall semester. Each application period gets more and more applicants so the scores keep rising. A few applications ago a handful got in with B’s in anatomy but it just doesn’t cut in anymore..

    Lone Star Fall 2020

    Hey everyone! I applied to the nursing program last spring with a score of 6.8 and didn’t get in (got a B in A&P). I retook anatomy this semester and I have an A as of right now and I got a 90.8 on the HESI. I’m applying to all campuses with a score of 7.632. I’m debating on retaking the HESI one more time to see if I can raise my score just a hair because last application period Montgomery took a 7.6 as their lowest applicant. I hope that everyone gets into their campus of choice!

    You can only get into one. If the school that you put as your top choice declines your application then it will automatically roll down to your second choice. Now if you get in and decide you’d rather attend a different campus, I think you can go in and see the nursing department and tell them you’d rather attend another campus and you’ll be put on the alternate list. You’d be giving up your spot at the campus you got accepted to and hope that someone from the other campus gives up their spot.

    Same here, I used the study book for vocab mostly but used free online practice tests for the other sections. There were a handful of questions that I found online and on quizlet that were actual questions on the A&P section. It is major relief when you do well on the difficult sections!

    Lone Star Spring 2020 ADN

    I did A&P, Math, vocab, reading, then critical thinking. From different people I heard to start with the more difficult sections and from others I heard to start with easier sections. The next time I take it I’ll probably start with reading since that tends to take up the most time then do A&P, math, vocab, critical thinking. It can be a little nerve wrecking since after each section they give you your score for that section. Do whatever makes you feel comfortable, take your time, and stay hydrated! I brought ear plugs with me to drown out other noises and that helped me a LOT.

    When I took the HESI at Tomball you can leave whenever you need a break (as long as you’re done with a section) you just aren’t allowed to use your phone, but you can snack, drink, and have a bathroom break. The time used to take a break does count towards your total time to take the test. I’m assuming that tomball’s rules are the same at every campus that offers the HESI. Make sure to have a good breakfast before your test, I only had a power bar before mine and I was miserable the entire time. Also pack some snacks! Hope this helps!
