    I am so excited to read from you.I live here in HOUSTON Planning to start spring 2017 too.I will like to know which books and study guide you use for Hesi exam

    I took advantage of free resources online. Like Youtube videos and practice quizzes. But I feel like the biggest help was using books at Barnes & Noble. I was surprised to see quite a few people up there doing the same thing. Using the book there as if it were a library. I found HESI books at the book store and instead of buying them I studied them there in the store. They have study areas with tables, or for sometime I actually just sat on the floor using the books because all chairs and tables were taken. I highly recommend this because you can read notes and take practice tests from many different books all for free! Also the deadline to apply is June 1 keep that in mind for scheduling your HESI.

    I am enrolled in Pathophysiology for Summer 2016, with Professor Urban. The academic coach is Amy Smith. Jesstad you is your academic coach?
    I am enrolled in Pharmacology for Fall 2016. I plan to submit my Declaratory Order tomorrow. Has anyone submitted a Declaratory Order to the Texas BON? The website states it could take up to six months. How long does it actually take?

    We have dedicated the past few years of our lives for this moment. Now we must play the waiting game to see if UTA accepts our dedication.

    I'm applying, too! I live in Katy.

    Awesome! I just like the thought of having study partners since we won't have interaction that we would have gotten on campus.

    I was thinking about doing a declaratory order just in case. When I was a teenager I had a shoplifting episode. So stupid, but no hiccups since. How extensive is the paperwork for the declaratory order? This was so long ago, I'd have to get a personal background check to actually have the date for the incident.

    My academic coach is Judith Evans. It's kind of stupid we can't see our class in blackboard yet. I wanted to read through our syllabus. Once the course starts I'll have to get your contact info so we can help each other out if ever need be.

    I'm submitting my application tomorrow! I live in Fort Worth

    My stats are:
    Reading Comprehension- 94
    Grammar- 84
    Vocabulary & Genernal Knowledge- 90
    Math- 96
    Science GPA- 3.4
    Cumulative GPA- 3.42

    Previous Bachelor's and working on getting partnered (fingers crossed!)

    I'm worried that my GPA's aren't high enough, so I'm going to have to work my butt off to get A's in the pre-nursing courses!

    I'm in Dr. Urban's Patho class this summer and I'm taking Pharm in the Fall.
    The syllabus for Dr. Urban's class is up now. It's a little overwhelming, but I'm excited to get going with the program!
