    I just finished Microbiology this summer at the south campus. It is a really tough class, but I finished with an A. I totally suggest taking Micro with Dr. Nancy Yurko. She is awesome. Like I said, it isn't easy, but she really is a great teacher. As far as the NAT exam, I am not taking mine until next month. I am totally nervous, but ready to just get done with it. For those that have taken it, is there a timer that you can see to make sure where you are at on the exam?

    Hi Guys. My name is Charles. I currently work for the fire dept and am planning on trying to get in to one of the nights and weekend classes in 2013. The only pre reqs I have left is A&P2 and MCB which I am taking this fall. I am the definition of a newbie when it comes to the ins and outs of how to apply, where to apply, the whole point system ect. Any light anyone could shed would be greatly appreciated, especially about the possible class sched for the N/W's course. Was also wondering about clinicals? Will that be something we can sign up for or will they say "be here at this time?" I would rather do weekends. Thanks!

    Yes there is a timer, in clear view for you to see at the top of the computer screen for each section. It turns red as a warning that the time is running out to less than a minute. There was one section I had 2 seconds left...haha

    Hi everyone!

    I'll be applying next month for the Spring 2013 Nursing Program along with all of you! I'm taking the NAT next month and I'm trying my best to prepare for it ahead of time. I had a few questions about the NAT exam. Will the spelling section and vocational adjustment index count towards our overall score? Or are we just being tested on academic aptitude, reading comprehension, and information in the natural sciences for the application? Also, for the reading section I see that we only get 20 minutes to answer 40 questions! Does anyone know how many passages there are and approximately how many questions for each passage? I'm trying to time myself on practice exams so i'll be able to finish that section! The timing on most of these sections has me worried. We don't have much time to answer all those questions. Also, if anyone has the application for Spring 2013 and could email it to me that would be great!

    Best of luck!

    The NAT is humanly impossible to complete especially the reading and math sections, you gotta be a super speed reader to get it all, just keep track of the time and guess the remaining answers. I know I know, some of us are geniues and think they can do it, so did I, but just accept it and move on. It even says so at the begining of the test to just try and answer as must as you can. We are tested on all 5 sections but for calculation the spelling and vocational adjustment scores do not matter. You can email cjames@fscj.edu , the progam administrator and she will email you the application she can also answer many of you guys questions.

    I had a response the next day. Unfortunately for me, all of their class times are Mon-Fri. I'm going to start searching for a class that takes place on a Saturday, or later in the evening.

    Do they only accept a certain amount of people outside of duval or nassau county? I haven't heard anything about that, I just assumed they accept people with the highest amount of points.

    Yes I am in Flagler county. There is a note on the application about preference to Florida residents, especially from Duval and Nassau but I do not think it will affect our admission. I know St. Johns Community College actually give student points for living within the school's county, but FSCJ does not do that. I think it's more for Georgia residents and students out of state it will be an issue.
