    2bnursestef....are you still out there??
    I am applying to the pt program at JS and was just reading some of these post. I am concerned, but do not really have a choice. If I want to do it, I have to do it at night!

    So, did any of you hang in..how are you doing! Did the program improve? What is your advice?
    Can you tell me exactly how many nights a week you have classes and clinicals the first few semesters?
    Hey Lucy..Im still around. Im graduating in May but Im in the full time program not part time. I cant tell you much but I do know that the part time program that graduated this past Decemeber had a 100% pass on the NCLEX. I also know a girl that left the part time and went to full time for the last 3 semesters. She works full time and felt it worked best with her schedule to go to the full time program. You can only do what is best for you! I wish you the best!!

    You'll get in with 190 pts. Start learning the calculations!! I just heard today that 1st semester just lost 16 people due to the Math.

    Yes that is the right book to use to learn the Math.

    All nursing schools that I know of do ERI testing. I went to LPN in Virginia in 2005 and we had to take them. Same at RN in Florida in 2008. We were told in the RN program that we had to pass test in order to pass program....50 pwople out of over 100 did not pass after retries x2, I don't know about the final try, but I do know that they made statement that they could not fail those who didn't pass the test bc it wasn't listed as a req for graduation in the student catalog, but that they were pursuing adding it to the catalog for later classes. We were required to show up for the retry testing or it was considered that we weren't trying then we could fail for not meeting the requirement that the catalog did warn about--actually taking the tests (though not passing). If that makes any sense. So lesson I hope to bring to the thread is, don't think you can just go to another school and get away from ERI. It is very difficult, but the NCLEX is, too. (NCLEX-RN is entirely different and much more difficult than NCLEX-PN, if that's of interest to anyone, as well.)
