    Jeeze CPR is 2 days!? Ours was probably like 3 hrs max. And our assignments were all due the last day of the 3 weeks. That's great that u like it. So do u have to go to class everyday ? We have 3 tests next week and a take home text also due next week everything were learning right now is pretty simple. Monday Wednesday and Friday are our tests and Tuesday we have a bathing lab where we wash each other and Thursday we have a movement lab. Basically what we do in class is write notes from the power point.. Then go on a break around 930 then come back take more notes and watch some videos then lunch and then a little more notes and go home.. We've been going home early like around 130/2 our teachers super nice and she "baby's" us but she's sooooooooo unorganized but it's fun I love it already have my little "group" of friends and study people we start out clinicals in January and after jan 14 we can take the CNA boards if we want to
    Yeah. CPR is 2 full days. And this teacher doesn't play around with going home early. she'll find an assignment for you to do if there's time to waste. We have her till April. Forgot to say we also had a 25 question math test today. To see where we are in math.

    Do you guys have to do resumés? We do because in block 3 we go on interviews for jobs or something like that. And we have to bring all of our books daily. So i guess they'll stay in my trunk or I'll buy a rolling backpack. We dont have to lug them, but in case clinicals get out early, we'll come back to class and read, etc. LOL

    Also very strict with the hair being pulled back, earrings, socks showing no ankles, etc. smh

    But the teacher is so nice.

    Core workbook will have periodic checks done on them, but she gives us the answer key to it all. Says its up to us to do the workbook. No sweat off her back. Lol

    They also don't play about being late. Whooo! 5 mins late=30 mins late and its noted. Be it via breaks, lunch, or coming in to class in the am.

    Hey sorry I've been so busy with school and the holidays haven't had time to respond
    ! That's crazy that u had a core work book we didn't have that just the book and our quizzes online. Did u have to go to class for core (not sure if u already mentioned it) we move pretty quickly do about 3 different units a week while taking tests for the last weeks units so its quite crazy. We will be finished with the nursing assistant portion of block one January 14 which is when we start our clinicals. I can't wait! We also don't need any supplies like stethoscope or any of that until later on. Half of the class including me failed our first test because she wrote directions at the BOTTOM of the test and we didn't read them so we got a few problems wrong. The tests keep getting more hard . The hardest so far was on mobility but our next text which is elimination of the bowel and urinary is going to be verrrrrry hard! Luckily our teacher babies us and if we do bad she will still pass us as long as she sees us trying and as long as we pass the BSF portion. We finish block 1 sometime in March. My friend is currently in block 2 and she says its ridiculously hard! Not looking forward to that. So how has school been so far? Is ur teacher nice? Did u migrate towards a little group of friends? How have ur core quizzes been?? Details!

    Oh and yes we did have to do. A portfolio with resume cover letter mission statement and letter of resignation. We have to bing our books too. Right now I carry my fundamentals study guide and book plus my binder plus my dictionary and my arm almost falls off! I will be erring a rolling back pack THIS WEEKEND!

    That's ok! I forgot I posted anyway! Yes we didn't have to buy the core text book. It's assigned to us in class. The school supplies it. All we have to do is buy the workbook. The first week (because we only had a week of school before xmas break) We did CPR which was a day and a half, and get checked off on handwashing and PPE wear.

    We're all assigned these nice dell laptops, and that's where we do our tests and quizzes. My first quiz I got a 91 %. The tests are not too hard so far. I'm sure that will change. When we get back the first day is quiz #2 and that same week a math quiz. And we will be getting checked off on blood pressures and pulse. I also think we will be getting checked off on head to toe assessments and bathing. I think the last week of January we will start clinicals. I'm so scared of Block 2. Maybe you can ask your friend what things we should do to prepare. They also throw a little math in the quizzes too. I guess to prepare us for Pharm. We're with this teacher until April. I like her.

    I don't think the quizzes count. The only thing that counts is the Core Final which we have to pass with at least a 70% in order to move onto the next block. We also have to take an exit HESI exam after each block. My teacher is very nice. Heavy spanish accent because she's hispanic. But she's so funny! She has stories for days!

    So far one student didn't show up on the last day before break. I wonder if she dropped out or just missed a day. They don't give you too many days to miss.

    They want us to bring all of our books daily when starting clinicals.So I'll need a rolling backpack too. Can't wait to see what facilities we go to. It could be as far a Boca. Ugh! I hope not though. They are very strict on the dress code. A few kids got written up already for legs showing (socks have to be long enough to cover your leg while sitting) , Earring have to be balls and no diamonds, and hair not touching the collar. Has to be pulled back. They are so strict about this. Gosh! I hope the time flies! Can't wait to get done already! Lmao I couldn't imagine starting in April and finishing 2014. Can you?

    Do you work? I don't. Which makes things a tad bit easier. Alot of my classmates do. I think out of the 20 students in my class just me and another classmate doesn't work. Some kids come to class SO tired. I feel so bad.

    Yes it is first come, first served. And there is no wait list. You're pretty early. I'm sure you got in.

    Hi thank you for responding. Are you presently attending Mcfatter, and if so how are the classes? Anything i should do as far as getting familiar with the program (ie; books AP)? How intense are the classes?

    Thanks

    I applied to mcfatter but didn't get in. I applied to late. So I went and applied to their sister school Atlantic tech. They have 2 sister schools. So I applied to 2 out of the 3 schools. Just in case I got a rejection. Lol I just started in December.

    I like it! Tomorrow starts clinical so we'll be going to the nursing home doing CNA type work. Core is one class. They call it core. Just the basics. Infection control, HIPAA, abbreviation, etc. it's a 90 he course.
