Hi! I am about to put my application in. I have to take the HESI exam and attend the info session. Have you gone to the info session yet? I'm ually coming from broward college. I was in the nursing program but wanted to switch. Do you know what is the cutoff points? I haven't taken the critical thinking nursing class so my points if if I'm able to ace t he hesi are around 23-24. Was wondering if I should wait until the following term to apply or do it now. Thanks in advance!

Hey there!

The person with the lowest points last cycle had 23.11 I believe. So you can take the hesi and go to the info session on Sept 23. But remember the deadline is Oct 1. So just make sure you study for the hesi, have all pre reqs, and attend info session. The RN advisor says that critical thinking is not required for acceptance but it is recommended if your hesi score is too low. But it does give you an extra point and helps you build a strong nursing foundation. Hope this helps! Best wishes!

Its basic chemistry. So just make sure to stay calm, and do not rush yourself! I rushed through the hesi and still had time left over. I took the reading section first because it's long. You will do great!

So I just took the hesi. Ended up with a 86.86 overall. This means with the other points I'll get 23.63 points. So nervous....

Sweet! The lowest accepted last cycle was 23.11 so you have a good shot! I recommend speaking with Latisha Myrick. She's the advisor. She may be really busy but when I spoke with her one on one she answered all of my questions, calmed my worries, and gave me all of the facts. Congrats on completing the hesi! Don't it feel good! ;-)
