I just recently took the HESI (only to apply to UF) and was wondering if my scores will be directly sent there or if theres somewhere I have to pay to submit it?

I emailed Ken awhile back and he said as long as you used the UF code associated with the exam and therefore had UF listed as your school, the scores will be sent via email on your behalf after the December 1st deadline! He said you can also put the scores in the HESI section of NursingCAS to be safe I guess!

There is no confirmation until you are accepted in the program. Just make sure there are no alerts/missing info.

Good to know! I submitted mine and there are green checks next to everything so I assumed it was good... they got my official transcripts automatically because I currently attend UF and I called the lady and she said now they just send it onto the CON and it’s up to them from there on out.

For the person asking about missing time at the beginning of the program:  I am not a current student, but from everything I've heard, it's not a good idea to ever get behind in this kind of a condensed, fast-paced program. IMO, it is best to forfeit the vacation time to make sure you start off well - sorry:( 

If it's not finalized yet or a small group of family, perhaps they could go a little earlier or delay it til you're between semesters?

Can anyone please clarify two things for me (both NursingCAS related):

1) the personal statement section is ONLY for the essay responses, right? I.e., we don't have to do the responses and a Statement of Purpose essay.

2) For the "personal/academic" letters of recommendation requirement, are they actually asking for a personal letter (i.e. from a friend/relative)?? I always thought that was considered a no-no.  As of now, I have 3 academic letters from professors and 1 professional letter from my boss. 

Thanks:)

Correct. At least that's how it was last year.

2) For the "personal/academic" letters of recommendation requirement, are they actually asking for a personal letter (i.e. from a friend/relative)?? I always thought that was considered a no-no.  As of now, I have 3 academic letters from professors and 1 professional letter from my boss. 

Yes, professional or academic.

When in doubt, call admissions. They are super helpful and will help you get everything in order. I think I called them 3 times to make sure they had everything 😂
