Hi, everyone! 
Hope I’ll be joining you all in the Spring. Does anyone have clarification about the math scores? Are they being considered? Losing that would drop my average score. How did everyone do on the science portions?

Yeah I looked at all the individual class averages! I printed my report when I took my HESI and included it with my application and I'm glad I did since it isn't calculating math now....what the heck!? I got a 96 on the math portion!

Khaleesi ! I just looked about the math like wth!! I’m curious I had no idea I wonder if we should call and ask! I did pretty good in science I got an 80 in Chemistry and then a 96 on both anatomy and biology . My reading scores were all around 80-90 except understanding I got a 79 😞 my math I got a 96 so I’m gonna need them to take that into account! I mean they made us take it right !!?!

Michelle,

Awesome scores! Great job. Just curious, what did you use to study for the anatomy section? I didn’t do as well as I thought I would and I think my source wasn’t great 😩

We didn’t have to include our scores in the application, right?? 😳. I feel like my overall score hasn’t changed since I took the test, I’d have to double check though

Thank you!! I was so anxious I think I was shaking through at least half the test. I used nurse hub! I studied that everyday for about a month and I had an amazing teacher I for A&P 1+2 I think that made all the difference for me I focused a lot on the bio and Chemistry practice quizzes and test but nurse hub was a life saver if costed 50$ for the subscription but it was worth every dollar.

We didn't have to include scores I just did because I am paranoid like that LOL! Just like I included a copy of my nursing license and also the current status of my license from the VA Board of Nursing as of the day I sent the application...

And Michelle good job those scores are awesome! I got a 92 in A&P and Chemistry but an 88 in Bio...

Stephanie those scores are just as amazing! I we need to start a fb group!! For all of us

My math score is still showing. I got a 82 for math. Chemistry was my lowest score at 76. Everything else I did fairly well on. Anatomy was an 86.

I am trying hard to step away from facebook....I am thinking about trying Google hangouts, would any of yall want to do that?

Stephanie that's great scores! From what I got in my response in my last application I think you'd be a shoe in!

 

What ever group you guys make I'm good with. Google hangouts might be good because it will be easy to continue using for those who get accepted.

Thank you, I really hope you are right!! I am new to Google hangouts, but I really have to take a break from facebook!

That's what I was asking earlier about the math score . The sheet doesn't have the math grade only science and English . Drops me little over a point without math. I'm not thinking I'll get in . I did really well in English and math but my science was horrible.  I took A&P 1 two years ago but I haven't had Chemistry since high school in 2001 🤣 biology was 2000 . I have a previous bachelors degree but it's totally unrelated to nursing . So for that science and I haven't taken  Bio 150, a&p2 or ethics I'm probably out. I didn't realize so many would have taken all of those already . I was enrolled in a&p2 but they switched it to virtual which I wanted in person .

Obxpirate I did not get in the last cycle but she does send you a letter saying what you can do to make yourself more competitive which was very helpful!

Kaitlyn what were the recommendations if you don't mind me asking?

Kaitlyn,

Only answer this if you’re comfortable! How were your scores and grades for the last cycle you applied for?

That test was no joke! I felt nervous every time a score was about to pop up! I don’t think I’ll be getting in either, but I still applied! And I’m hoping I will. My scores weren’t in the 90s except for anatomy. Bio was my worst, I haven’t taken bio since 2012. All I can do is wait and see!
