Thanks@ hemphia. I really enjoyed your questions at the information session. R u admitted this fall 2012.

has anyone taken the hesi a2-v2? (which is what you take if you take the hesi a 2nd time)

i know they aren’t going to give us the same test twice of course, i just wanted to know if anyone felt the the version 2 was any different?

i am scheduled to take mine august 10th, which is not this friday but the next.

thank you.

Yes. It is not drastically different, maybe a little more difficult, but you aren't going to get the same questions for sure. I felt like the first HESI was a warm up and helped me prepare for the second one. They are done in the same style, so study like you did for the first one and tailor it according to what you saw on the first HESI. Study guide helped me a lot! I made much better marks on the second than I did on the first.

Thank you! I have the HESI admission assessment book and ive been studying that. I also have a critical thinking book to reivew as well. I had an 87% overall last time, def hoping to get at least a 92% or better this time!

Do you guys have any tips on studying for the vocabulary portion? That was my weakest section.

Does ANYONE know what kind of diversity there is in the acceptance process? As in those of you who are students now and have discussed stats with one another, do you know what the lowest scores you have heard of getting in?

I just wanted to see if there could be any tension released on us Spring 2013 applicants. A lot of us applying are wondering what the lowest CT score accepted has been. I got an 830 my first time, and I am about to take the HESI A2-V2.

Any information is helpful, we are all driving ourselves crazy lol

Because the first time I took it I didn't study at all. Just went in there and took it....I want to re-take it because seeing some of these applicants scores scare me and maybe studying the material will get me higher averages. I scored high B's and 1 A in math.

Math 90%

Reading 89.13% (BUT, if you look into the break down there are 4 components I got a 77 and 75 on implications and conclusions) I feel like they will look at that too. I got a 100 on meaning and word use and 95 on understanding. The average was 89.13%.

Vocab 82%

Grammar 86%

A&P 88%

CT 830

Pre req 3.68

Overall 3.57

I am freaking out about taking it again because what if I do worse, but I am studying this time just hopefully its a enough to do better. A lot of people get 90 or above on all sections. I didn't apply anywhere else (dont want to) so I am doing anything to better my chance at earning a spot....

I see. I got all A's on each of the hesi sections but a 770 in critical thinking.

Reading comprehension 90

Anatomy and physiology 92

Math 96

Vocabulary 90

Grammar 90

Prereq 3.71

Science 3.25

Hope I get it. Good luck to you!

I was thinking about taking it again but don't want to mess my grades especially in critical thinking cause I really don't know how to study for it

@nici0513 did you have all 4 sciences finished when you applied? or how many did you have and what were they? i know a girl hemphia got accepted and she had all 4 sciences finished with all a's and 4 classes left to take when she was accepted. i wonder if they start with those who have all sciences finished because all a's in that is basically saying you'll do good in the program since its all science. (hope this makes sense) im of course freaking out about everything lol

Does anyone know if they combine repeated courses, or if they just take the highest grade?

They take the highest grade.

When courses are repeated, they take the most recent grade, which could be lower.

Is there anyone on this discussion forum that is already in the UTHSC PhD program? If so, I would love to hear from you!

Thanks,

Hey everybody!

I was just curious if anyone has heard of a situation like mine before. I was accepted in fall of 2012 for generic BSN @ UTHSC-Houston and was accepted, but was not done with all my pre-reqs yet. Does anyone know if my chances are pretty good for getting in this time around(fall 2013)?

Thanks and good luck to you all!

You either get in or you don't. You can estimate a probability, but a good chance is not the same as a real acceptance. It's hard to be patient, but worrying about it doesn't help at all.

lvl1, may I ask what I could expect as pay as a pca at MH? I have a few years experience and do blood, and I want to know what to ask.

For anyone who is currently enrolled or graduated - did they drug test you throughout school at random times? I'm concerned about some of my medications affecting possible test results. I know they test you to get in, but I haven't been able to figure out who I contact regarding my medications, since according to HIPAA you can't tell the drug testing center what medications you're on.
