Tidewater Community College nursing: Fall 2019

Posted

Anyone out there applying to the fall 2019 program? Today’s the first day to apply and I feel like I’m overly excited to submit my application lol. The only pre-req I haven’t taken is Bio 142 & the math placement test.

I’m applying! Just waiting for my high school transcript to come in. I’m hoping my bachelors degree helps because my GPA is only a 3.0.

I have A’s in BIO 141, 142 and Dev. Psych. Haven’t taken any other co-requisites. Got an 85 on the HESI, wish I scored in the 90’s!

I’m so glad I finally got a response! Lol. Im waiting for my previous college transcript to come in and I take my hesi on Tuesday! Im super nervous for that. I have A’s in everything except microbiology (B) & I’ll take BIO 142 this summer.

Good luck! You will do fine if you study! How long have you been prepping for, and with what? I was nervous at first also but I don't think it was hard, and you get to choose which subjects you want to do first!

Hello everyone,

I just recently submitted my application too for Tidewater community college nursing program fall 2019 start date. I have completed all my prerequisites classes and co-requisite classes with A's and score a 89.4 on the Hesi. I am super nervous and waiting is killing me.

Sc_1992 how was the hesi exam?

My hesi is scheduled for tomorrow and I’m super nervous. I’ve been studying since December using the hesi pocket prep app and the elsevier study book. That’s the last thing I’m waiting for so hopefully I do well on it

I’ve been using the pocket prep app on a daily basis and read through the book a few times. Would you say there was a lot of conversions on the math portion?

The math was pretty basic and questions were similar to that of the evolve study guide. Good luck on the test

Thanks! Did you just recently take yours?

You did more studying than I did @sc_1992! I think you'll do great - math is a piece of cake. Hardest section for me was chemistry, and it showed in my score. Just take your time and relax!

So I just finished my hesi and biology & chem were my worst subjects! I don’t think the pocket prep app and the book were good enough study tools for those two subjects. Ended up with a composite core of 89. I wanted so badly to be in the 90’s 😭

Quick question: did anyone’s hesi score change? When I finished my hesi exam at the testing center & printed off my results my composite score was 89 but now I’m looking at it on the elsevier website and it says 86.4??? On the elsevier website, the grammar & vocab areas aren’t listed/ factored into the score so what’s up? Is TCC gonna see the 86.4 even though I have a printed composite score of 89??

Congratulations on the hesi. I think you did pretty well. I was also shooting for the 90, but I ended up with the same score 89. Sigh... At this point all we can do is wait. I used the pocket prep and the elsevier book. I fell down in math and A&p because those are my strong areas and I did not review the study material before taking the test. I hope we all get through. Good luck to everyone.

No, my composure score did not change. Maybe you should contact evolve

I wanted to be in the 90s too, but 89 is very good! You and Koma both scored higher than my 85. The previous cut off scores have been 81 and below so I think we’re all in a good position.

My score did not change either, and all of the subjects were factored in. Contact Evolve or TCC!

I contacted elsevier and they were able to fix the issue. I almost had a heart attack when I first noticed the change! Lol. If the previous cut off was 81, I think we all definitely have a pretty good shot. As far as the hesi goes, math was surprisingly my best subject. Did you guys mail your applications or hand deliver?
