    Is020879 your gpa is considered competitive. Apply to TWU!!! My advice is to get your HESI at 85 or higher (per nursing advisor's advice) and keep keeping on. If nursing is your calling, don't let anything deter you from your dreams. :heartbeat

    your gpa is definitely competitive for twu! i just got in to the houston campus with a 3.7 and a 94 on the hesi. i think most people who were accepted posted their stats so you can go back and compare. for the hesi, it is definitely not too hard, but i do STRONGLY recommend the study guide listed on the website (you can also get it at barnes & noble) just so that you know what the test layout will look like. also, there's a medical vocabulary section on the exam, and most of the questions are on words they define in the book.

    i was accepted to ut houston also, if you don't mind me asking, did you get an interview? or did they reject your application without one?

    I was accepted for an interview. I got kind of nervous but i know that my responses to the questions were pretty good. they told me that they had 1500 applicants and only got 300 for the interview. Out of the 300 they only got 85. With my luck i was not accepted

    how is yalls studying going for patho? I think I finally have the hang of this class, considering it's our fourth test, that doesn't say much lol. After Monday, we only the have the final, which is only 4 chapters instead of 5. yay. I just can't wait to finish this test so I can enjoy thanksgiving and go shopping.

    I am planning on applying to the TWU weekend program from Spring 2011. Is he weekend program offered every year or is it only offered in even numbered years? I would like to go to the Dallas campus.

    good question! I don't know. Also, they canceled the fast track program, so you might want to see if they canceled the weekend program as well.

    Yes I have lot of questions for you. Are you in Houston/ Dallas?
    We are going to have our first advisement session on Dec 11 so what we should expect there? How they will register our classes? So far I have seen monday tuesday and thursday classes and I wonder when we will have our clinicals? How students pick their hospital? From where You buy your scrubs and other required stuff and what is the color of scrubs? How we can prepare ourselves best for junior 1 session. I have not taken pathophysiology so I wonder after how many days we will have our first test and how many chapters? Any helpful hints regarding assessment class will be helpful. And when you go first day in class what should students expect?
    I am sorry that I am asking a lot of questions but your inputs will be equal to treasure for us.

    Hello All,
    I am in the Weekend nursing program and had to miss orientation last night due to my truck breaking down. It killed me to not be there. I am hoping some of you were there and wouldn't mind filling me in on the information I missed. Did they tell about uniforms needed, equipment, books, etc.?? Anything you could share would be great!!

    We got a wealth of information. Most importantly we registered for the classes for Spring. There are three classes that you have to register for. You can register from home, just get the section information. We got a tour of the building. For the Spring we are required to come every Saturday for assessment for clinicals. Everything else in online. We got the information on textbooks we need for Spring, uniforms, badges and patches and shoes, stestoscopes were discussed and will be needed for Spring. Uniform is white top and marroon bottoms. Everything can be purchased in Majors bookstore by the school. If you have further quetions just post and I will reply.
