More waiting...

I wasn't able to take the test yesterday as planned. I had to pay for the test before I was able to take it and I totally spaced that the business office would be closed on Sundays.

I did take it this morning though, even after all signs pointed to maybe it wasn't a good day to take it. (Running around getting my daughter ready for her first day of school, waking up to shit and vomit all over my office from the dog we are taking care of, the little one waking up SCREAMING and just being a complete crab all morning) I am happy to say that I score 100% on the math portion of the test, which was obviously the one I focused all my studying on and was also the one I was most nervous about.

I did not do as well on the reading part though. This was the only section that counted towards our entrance scores. I got a 91.3%, still pretty good, but I was hoping for a better score. I am a little disappointed in myself. It is what it is though right?

This means I am applying to the Spring 2011 nursing program with a 11.652 out of 12 points.

I really hope it is good enough. Normally I wouldn't be worried, but the scores are REALLY high this time.

So now I wait. Wait for my score to populate in the system, then once I turn in my application, I wait for my acceptance/denial letter to come in the mail.

The next two months are going to be torturous.


  1. I would hope 11.652/12 is good enough, but I know all too well how competitive nursing school is when applying. Are you only allowed to take the HESI one time? I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. Congrats!

    I'd say that's a pretty damn good showing.

  3. That is good! Someone recently told me that nursing school's are somewhat "easier" as in less selective this year.. I hope for your sake!

  4. Yeah! Now you can join the rest of us just waiting to see if we really have made it! I am sure you will get in!

  5. Good luck and those are good scores!
