Hello fellow pre-nursing students! This is a thread for those who are applying to The University of North Georgia's Nursing Program to start Fall 2019. Share your stats, HESI tips, and eventually acceptance/rejection notices. I am a post-baccalaureate transfer student and am re-taking science courses this Fall which have expired. I'm taking the HESI in about a month. Good luck to all who are applying!

Hi! I'm also post-bacc. I took Chem 1 Spring 2018 and Micro over the Summer. I'm currently in Chem 2 and A&P 1. I just registered to take the HESI in December. I'm pretty nervous! I hoping to manage to self-teach A&P 2 and score well enough for the Fall 2019 Cohort.

Thanks for your reply! I am taking Chem 1, A&P 1, and Psyc2103. I'll take micro and the other two sciences in the Spring. I took the HESI about a month ago. For the A&P section, I bought A&P cliff's notes online and read it twice (it's an easy read). I also used an app that's around $15 that others have said helped their score. It's called HESIPrep I think (purple icon). I'm on the Gainesville campus a few days a week. Let me know if you want to meet up!

Hi! I am scheduled to take the HESI in October and I am applying in December for Fall 2019 at the Gainesville campus. I am hoping to obtain a 3.7 gpa when I apply to the program (currently taking two online classes at LanierTech). I will have 41 credit hours when I apply to the program, which I was told by my advisor that it would not matter as long as I am able to finish all 60 prerequisites upon starting the nursing program. What did you make on your HESI? I'm so nervous!!

I did well (95+). I have a background in dietetics, so I did not need to study much for A&P. I bought A&P Cliffs notes and read it twice, practiced math problems, and just was very thorough and careful when I took the test. For reading comprehension, the answers are given to you (you just have to comprehend what's being asked and then locate the info). For vocab, study the Hesi book that UNG advisors recommend. Don't stress! It's not a hard test.

I'm currently reading the Cliff Notes A&P book and I love this book! I hope it helps me on the HESI test. I feel like I already understand A&P so much better since reading it. Also, does anyone have any recommendations for which Chemistry class to take and which Professor to take on the Gainesville campus? Survey, Organic, etc?

If you are taking Chem1151 (survey) then definitely get Professor Ohrenberg. She actually makes me like chemistry. That's the only class that she teaches from what I understand. I can't speak for the other chem professors b/c I've only had her. I am taking 1151 (survey) b/c that is what is recommended for pre-nursing majors. I think if you want to eventually get into med school then you might need to start with principles instead of survey. Organic chem is not a requirement for nursing. Hope this helps!

Hi! Currently at GSU and hoping to transfer into UNG for their program. Sitting at a 3.9 GPA, haven't taken my HESI yet! I'm planning on taking it early november because I'm a nervous test taker and have been putting it off lol! My question is though, when you take the HESi, does it give you your score right away and UNG gets it automatically or do you have to wait for it to process and what not? Thanks!

Hi prenursingstud! That's an excellent GPA- congrats on the hard work. For the HESI, I took mine at the testing center next to the UNG Gville campus, and since it's computerized I got my score about an hour later. You just have to check back on the Elsevier website and you can see what you made on each section as well as your composite score. It will even tell you what topic in each area that you missed questions on. Good luck! I'm sure you'll do fine.

Thank you ehayes215!! I know the deadline is December 15 so i'm wondering if I take the HESI on December 7th my scores should be received? This is my only shot at taking the HESI and I want as much study time as I can possibly get :(

Yes I think that's plenty of time. You may want to e-mail the nursing department just in case to make sure. From my understanding, you just have to take it by 12/15. The don't start putting everything together and offering seats until Jan/Feb.
