    First advice is to search these forums for past posts. You will find a wealth of information. Yahoo also has some really good groups dedicated to the Ex nursing program.

    There are a few classes you can take without enrolling. I would advise to take one of those before enrolling to make sure this program is right for you. It isn't for everyone and it is best not losing any money to find that out.

    I also highly recommend not going through third party publishers like TCN. Buy your books from from Amazon and save lots of $$$.

    Good luck!

    Thanks, I do not plan on using TCN! Heard terrible things about them plus they are way too expensive. I will check out Yahoo for the groups. I have also searched through the forums before I posted but I was trying to see if anyone else wanted to add anything. The forums have been lots of help, especially when the college cannot/won't answer my questions. I do plan on taking a few classes before I enroll to help myself plus to help financially. I like scrolling through the forums to see what people/students are saying. I'm excited about starting.
