    Fletcher Technical Community College ASN Fall 2014

    Sorry for the late reply! I decided to go straight for my BSN, and didn't start this program. I would say it is fairly easy to get in, though. 2.75 pre-req GPA, and only 75 HESI score, etc. Good luck.
  2. I'm going to be taking English II (online) and Anatomy and Physiology I in August. I am nervous. How can I prepare for A&P? Don’t be nervous. It can be a lot of information, but it’s mostly memorization. As long as you stay on top of the material everyday, you’ll be fine. Make flashcards, take practice quizzes, watch Youtube videos, ask your professor for extra help, join a study group...there’s so many ways that you can study, so you just have to find what works for you. Enjoy the rest of your summer and don’t worry about it too much. RN vs. BSN People say that you’re never too old to learn because it’s true. You’re only 23. I’ve wasted some after high school too, but the important thing is that you’re starting at least. A career takes time, especially one in nursing, and it won’t come easy. Prepare to work hard in your classes, and striving to make all A’s to be a competitive applicant. If nursing is important to you, you’ll buckle down and do what needs to be done no matter how long it takes. I know it may not be glamorous, but phlebotemy is a good option, or even CNA while getting your degree. If money isn’t an issue, I would go ahead and take the BSN route if they’re not hiring ADNs in your area. I'm scared the schooling might be too hard for me. You’re probably not the same person you were in high school. I made bad grades in high school too, but later, I discovered that it was only because I wasn’t as determined as I am now, and immature students made it harder for me to learn. And now that I’m older, I know how I learn best, and I’ve discovered a lot of resourses for math, and I’m not afraid to ask for help. The slate is clean now, so don’t worry. When school starts, just give it everything you got. Yeah, you may be in school for awhile but picture yourself with your degree in your hand and RN behind your name when it’s all said and done. There is a finish line, and with each semester, you get closer and closer. Is nursing for me? Other than security, I asked myself if I would seriously be satisfied with this job. Try doing some soul searching. Your college should also have a counselor that can help you with this decision. Good luck in whatever you decide! You can do it.

    Grammar and chemistry section questions

    Hi, I just took the HESI today. My school didn't require the chemistry section. For the grammar, it is very basic. It is just common sense stuff. If you're good at English, and you know when sentence "sounds right," then you'll be fine. At least, this is how it was on my test. But I would recommend going over the study guide just in case. Good luck!

    Congrats, OP. I made a 4.0 too. I'm taking A&P II with micro and lifespan development next semester. Hopefully, I can keep it up. A&P I lecture/lab - A Intro to Psychology - A College Algebra - A Computer Applications - A

    Took the hesi A2 thoughts and tips

    Hi, what is the anatomy and physiology portion like? I am freaking out about this part. I haven't taken A&P II yet. Thanks

    Ask me anything!

    Thanks for answering questions :) I have one more semester of pre-reqs and waiting to take the HESI A2. I am so nervous I may not get in. What were your stats when you were accepted?
  9. Hi everyone, I didn't see any threads on this school I'm applying to. All of my pre-requisities will be done in the spring. Right now, I am studying hard for the Hesi A2, because a minimum of 80 is needed to apply. Since this is the only school I'm applying to, I need all the support I can get. I tried emailing the nursing department, but didn't get much info. We can share information about the program and our stats, too. Is anyone else applying here or know someone that got into their ASN program? Does anyone know how many are accepted? Good luck to everyone else that is applying!

    Is anyone else this way?

    I'm doing really well in my A&P I class...until we get to chapter 3 and 4 (the cells and tissues). When studying for the test, I discovered I had trypophobia, as silly as it sounds. It's the fear of small circles or holes clumped together, so these chapters are my my worst nightmare. Looking at the tissues, all those cells clumped together just gives me the creeps, and I haven't been studying because of it. Does anyone else have this problem?

    Just finished first A&P test......

    You'll be fine. I just took my first A&P test on chapters 1 and 2 last week. There were some tricky questions that made me doubt myself, and I got a 100! Good luck :)
  12. mayninetytwo

    When is your first A&P test?

    My first lecture test is on the 10th. It covers chapters 1 and 2, so it's not that bad. I just get so confused with the chemistry because it's so abstract! My lab test is on the 16th. It'll cover cells, the skull, and...something else lol. Honestly, I haven't been studying as hard as I should, because i got most of it down in a couple days.
