    I'm considering selling my med/surg book if I can find a buyer. There's highlighting in the first portion of the book and some in the middle but no rips or missing pages. I also have the pharmacology book and for third block, the maternity book. let me know if you're interested.
    I'm interested. Pm me for prices please!

    Yes it's a semester short due to not having to take all of the classes which is basically missing a semester it's 3 instead of 4. And I love my teacher I learn just as much from her and having her be nice is a plus. I think it's a piece of cake so far and the transition program is also. So choosing this route first was def the best decision. Where's you go for block 1 clinics at atlantic?
    For hospital clinicals so far all I know of us northwest as far as hospitals.

    For clinicals in block 1 it was John Knox village and heartland of boca.

    Yeah we need a score of 850 and up on the HESI. If not we have to remediate and all kind of other b.s.

    Same here too with block 2 having a horror teacher and a nice teacher. I hope I get the latter, but we shall see. Lol

    Did you say the transition program was a piece of cake? Do you know someone who said that? I hope so.

    Piece of cake??? Who said that? None of these programs is or was a piece of cake. It took blood, sweat and tears. Sleepless nights and not being able to have a life. I loved it but nothing worth doing or having comes easy. .

    Sure doesn't come easy. I'm up studying now for a test in the morning. Just last week I wanted to quit but a friend talked me out if it. I'm mentally tired. Test after test after test. I'm drained.

    Don't quit. Believe me. When you walk to "Pomp and Circumstance" and walk to receive your certificate it'll feel like you're on top of the world.

    No. No job but it's not a concern anymore seeing as I got accepted into Broward College LPN-RN transition program starting May 13.

    @Aspiring I'm a little nervous because I only have 2 days left in block 1 and start block 2 on Thursday. (Wednesday no school). You know how I feel about math so I'm nervous. I hope it's not too bad. Plus you get all these horror stories from students in block 2 saying this teacher is mean, and that one is mean. I'm excited though because we get to go to the hospital!

    How is everyone? Cordero how are you doing over there? Now we're in clinicals. One day at the hospital and one day at a rehab facility. Next week we start med pass. So far so good.

    Hey! Sorry I've been lost lol! Everything is good over here. Everyone's experiences are different in my opinion I think it's a piece of cake block 2 wasn't as hard to me as everyone who tried to scare us. Someone my classmates it is difficult just depends on the person. And yes the transition is a piece of cake because we already know everything were just missing a little detail in something and yes I've spoken to someone who said that and it makes complete sense even my teacher agrees. We have only 8 more tests left then were done with block 2 we finish July 18 I've got a B in every body system (each system has 3 or 4 tests) and I was a bad student in high school. I'm just very good with listening I don't have to really study. I usually study like for an hour and half before school. And our teacher gives us an option to sign a contract stating we do all of our homework and stuff she asks for and we get extra points on all of our tests and if u don't sign it and u failed by 1 point shell say well too bad u didn't do ur homework that's why u failed. So that's a plus. We do med pass in the beginning of block 2 with pharmacology then we start disorders. Our block 2 class splits in half for clinical half goes to plantation nursing rehab and the other half goes to memorial pembroke. We just switch may 20 so my half is in the hospital and its awesome. Each day 3 of us get to go to a specialy area for the whole day. I was in pre op last week can't wait to go to the OR like some of my classmates have previously. It's awesome I love the hospital environment! Our block 3 is a piece of cake you basically teach yourself because I've herd the teacher is no help and we go for 2 months to school and the last 2 we o 5 days a week to clinical a bunch if different places depends where your places. I'm so glad I chose this route and after I graduate in November I'm taking my boards ASAP hopefully no later than December and then I start finishing my pre Reqs for my BSN in January while I wi be working. The. After I finally get my BSN I will be applying to medical school and go for my doctor but that's a long way away! But that's all I see in my vision. It's what keeps me going and motivated! L be selling my block 2 binder to any McFatter students. With all of my notes and assignments it def helps! It's amaing how much we learn. I'm sti surprised at the things I know and can pass around to friends and family. My husband actual knows a lot from studying with me and my 3 year old daughter knows some terms her favorite is pyrosis lol! Don't know if I've shared but when we are in the nursing home I got to give my first shot of insulin, draw it up and everything. Also we got to do accu checks alone we've done a mlion! And yesterday at the hospital I have my second injections, it was heparin. Pretty cool! Can't wait to finish and as soon as I pass boards ill be getting certified in iv therapy and all of the other certifications were able to get. I can't wait. Also our school reimburses you if you pass the nclex I'm sure Atlantic does too since they're sister schools! Hope all is well! If it gets too difficult don't even think about quitting just think how bad you want this and how much time and dedications you've already put into it!

    Idk why you're trying to sell your notes. If you don't need them, which you WILL in 3rd block, give them to another student who may be struggling. It's expensive enough to pay for books and study guides without the added hassle of finding someone who doesn't need their notes but will only SELL them?
