Hi Faith,

To be competitive you need to get above a 90 on the HESI. UCCS weighs the HESI more than your GPA so as long as your GPA is above a 2.5 I wouldn't worry about it. To study, I used Quizlet, my old textbooks and Khan Academy. Hope that helps.

Hi Faith,

Charlieangel is spot on. The GPA didn't seem to matter nearly as much as the HESI so I would focus on that. I also found the Pocket Prep app really helpful. It's $15 or something in the App Store but it was worth it. Good luck!!

Hello, I have applied to this program for a summer 2020 start and I just took my HESI. Do any of you know if they are looking for a composite score over 90 or a 90+ in every section? I have a composite of 90 but didn’t score as well as I would have liked in two sections. This is the only program I am looking at so I’m really hoping I still have a chance at getting in. (Also I just made this account to comment on this thread so I guess I can’t PM)

Hi! So that’s a good question, they don’t really make it very clear. I just graduated from the program in August and I got accepted with a 90 composite. If I can find the broken down scores I’ll post them but I definitely did not get above a 90 in each section. It also varies year to year with how many applicants they have. My best advice is to try to get your application in well before the deadline, sometimes they do rolling admissions and that didn’t help people who waited until the last day. If you have any other questions just ask!
