    Not sure if you guys are still checking this post, but I just found out last week that i have been placed for fall 2011 as well! Apparently they had some withdrawals and placed a few people last minute. I'm super stoked but also stressed because it starts in a month and I just found out! Good luck to you all and i'll see you in class!

    Just got accepted to the accelerated program at Gateway CC too. Hope you have time to answer my questions and please tell me about what extra books should I get aside from the evolve pack.
    What is the schedule? Clinicals? Accelerated, does that mean 3 blocks? How does it get divided? Anybody did FAFSA for tuition?
    Can you elaborate what chapters are in block one on the main txt book? Did you take HESI test at end of every semester? Gawd please don't let me know Sim Jim is one of the instructor.
    Thank you thank you thank you!!!!

    Congrats on starting!!! You're in for a wild ride. I am just about to start preceptorship this week so let me answer what I can...The schedule changes throughout all 4 blocks, but starting out you're in class a lot more like 4 days a week which includes lab time (hands on stuff). The profs use a lot of the theory text book so it's hard to say what chapters to pick out. hesis are taken at the end of each block. and block one is theory and nursing process and the basics of care with a little bit of acute care. block two is basics of acute care, three is med-surg peds and ob. and block 4 is pysch and critical care. hope this helps and my piece of advice is go into class with an open mind and listen to every instructor because even of you don't like their teaching style they still know what they're talking about. Best of luck!!!

    Cheers
