    Thank you Vonjo27 . My over all experience is that it was tough and took a lot of hard work and dedication. With that being said it is doable. You will have to scarifice your time and devote it to studying. I believe what makes the program difficult is not the material it self but the lack of time to learn and retain all of it.
    First semester was the hardest for me because its like a culture shock. All of this new information and how you will need to apply it. Also test taking is totally different because questions asked will be all critical thinking in format. The easiest part for me came in 3rd semester.
    Advice I can give is to read but to also pay attention to your powerpoints know them well. Keep yourself organized and stay on top of your assignments. Their will come a point when you will doubt yourself and feel the urge to give up but push through. Dont forget to take time out for yourself and relax. You too will survive nursing school!
    My first semester we started with about 70 and lost 10 people.

    Thanks for the advice!!! 10 out of 70 is still sad, but I was actually expecting the number to higher. I plan on being one of the lucky 60 that pushes through! Another question- at what point do students start interacting with patients? Where are the clinicals? Are they all at Palmdale Medical Center? Sorry for all the questions- I'm just getting real antsy. Were there many males in the program when you were studying? I'm hoping I'm not the only one!!

    You will start to interact with patients after you have completed all of your check-offs in skills lab. Which will be after the 6th week. Clinicals for me first semester was just at AV hospital but as you get to second semester I believe you will rotate between palmdale and av hospital. And their are about 7 guys in my graduating class.

    Vonjo27 - Hey! We should chat, I'll be commuting from Santa Clarita, sI'm dreading the commute and the gas $! I can't PPM yet because I haven't posted enough. As far as the schedule goes, go to the AVC website and look up nursing 110 and 111 on the schedule. Looks like 3 days a week to begin.

    Adia- I just checked out AV Hosipital- looks like fun! I didn't know it even existed- I thought we did everything at Palmdale Medical Center. 7/70 for males is still above average.

    Hey Leanna- I'm dreading the commute too! But at least we miss traffic driving in to AV in the morning. We should keep in touch.

    I'll be coming from the Santa Clarita Valley area... I think we took the teas on the same day. I took it on nov 15 or 16. I think you were the only guy there out of us like 6 girls...

    I finally got a late acceptance! I'm so excited and nervous. I applied in February of this year so thank goodness I didn't have to wait till fall. I've had friends in the program who've worked part time and got overwhelmed by the second semester. I think its doable but there will definitely be lots of sleepless nights. I can't wait to meet everyone!
