    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!
    Block 2 isn't bad. At least not as bad as the previous class tried to make it. I've been getting 80's on my tests. So it's not that bad.

    We go to clinical twice a week. One day to a nursing home, then the other to Coral Springs hospital. We're passing meds and what not. I like the hospital setting better.

    Last day for block 2 is August 8th. Can't wait! Ugh! Block 3 is clinical 3 days a week I believe, and class 2 days a week. With rotations in psych, peds, and hospice.

    We started with 25 (in block 2) and are down to I think 13. Seems like every other week we lose someone. It's sad.

    Anyone have any idea how long the BCC transition program is? Was reading an old thread and saw 18 months. Yikes! Might as well went to BC from the beginning if that's the case!

    And yes! Atlantic does reimburse you if you pass the boards.

    That's awesome that your doing good I'm glad! Cat believe how close we were to being in the same class. Keep me updated! We've lost 2 people so far in block 2 the other half of the class lost a few. Sad a lot were by like a point. And why am I selling it? Because I lost a lot of time with my family for it, I put a lot of hard work and time into it and I'm not giving someone a free ride especially if I don't know them.

    Just checking in!

    Block 2 will be over in just about 2 weeks then on to my last blck..Block 3! So excited and can't wait to finish. December 12th can't come fast enough. We have 2 separate classes of block 2, but since we've lost so many people, we will be combining the block 2 classes to just one block 3 class. There's only 11 left in my class and 12 in the other. There are some people on HESI contract, so hopefully everyone makes it through. I think there's only 4 more clinicals left in this block. Can't wait, because I actually don't like clinicals. I know that's weird, but it seems like we're doing more CNA work and documenting then doing 'nursing' stuff.

    HEY been in block 3 for a week now.. super boring basically the teacher just reads straight from the book so during class i do all of my work and drugs etc. took our first test did great. we start clinicals next week for maternity peds and psych pretty excited. Hesi was ok passed with an 857 for med surg and got like 760 something in pharm luckily we didn't need an 800 on that. Im signed up for 2 classes at bc to continue my pre reqs while also still in the program until novemeber.. block 3 isn't as intense as the others and its maternity and peds, i have 2 kids so i took it upon myself to help get ahead. hows everything at atlantic? they showed us the passing rates for all 3 schools and as usual.... sheridan is like 50% SO NO ONE GO TO SHERIDAN, UNLESS YOU DONT WANT TO PASS THE NCLEX. we got 100% passing rate at mcfatter and atlatic had like 80 or 90 so def stay away from sheridan people!! not t mention they don't teach you about catheters!!!! you learn when u get to it in real life! TERRIBLE! Also Mcfatter has changed somethings around.. the school now starts at 730-2 mon-fri (doesn't affect the current students) i think they might end up switching it back because we all have been complaining for the new students because its just not able to work especially for people with children... anyway! all is well over here/ love the program glad i took this route and chose this school. for anyone trying to decide id say have mcfatter as your first choice in my opinion. and no take no for an answer no matter which route you take.
