wow, way to drag back a dead post.
the uopx used to use hesi and all current students as of july, 2011 will finish with hesi, but all new students will be using ati. they just switched this year. i am in my final class and cannot wait to never have to see this place again. the current scores for hesi are 800 for med/surg, 850 for specialty tests, (peds, ob/gyn, psych) and 900 for rn exit. no one will tell us what the pass/fail score for ati is.
the tests are currently only on "clinical" classes, i.e. med/surg, psych, ob/gyn, peds, and adv med surg. each of these classes have a pass/fail component. don't pass the test, don't pass the class. sometimes you get a re-test, within 2 days, other times no retest. you can retake one class once if you fail.
unfortunately, with no one in charge right now (program director left suddenly recently), almost no one can answer any questions about what qualifies for a retest and what doesn't.
the program will take between 2-5 years to complete depending on how many of your units the school will accept.
overall, i do not recommend the uopx to my fellow lvn's, at least not at my campus. i hope the programs in az, co, and hi are better run.
