    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.
    Funny. Everyone who drops or leaves my school goes to Sheridan. They love it over there and say the environment is so welcoming with the teachers. Atlantic can be challenging.They give us RN like tests. It's not easy but I like it. The teachers have BAD attitudes though. I heard mcfatter is ghetto and just passes ppl. Funny the things we hear huh? lol . I'm dreading the HESI that's coming up. The pharm especially. *sigh* I've been doing the practice tests so hopefully that'll help. I think the 7:30 to 2 schedule isn't bad but maybe for others it won't work out had a girl visit out class yesterday and she graduated from our school. She came to tell our teacher she had just graduated from BC. She failed by one point the first time, and it wasn't her fault. But according to her, teachers were talking saying that they accepted too many and were failing ppl by .5 points, etc. I felt so bad for her. She had to repeat and finally passed. I'm scared to go there, but MAY give it a try. I'm looking at other schools right now. BC is not my first choice by any means. But if I get in I'll take it. . I don't start block 3 until August 19th. The 8th is the last day of block 2 and we get a week off, upon returning starts block 3. I heard its really laid back.

    The passing rates are according to the state boards for students who passed the nclex not from the schools themselves sheridan has a terrible passing rate. That's crazy that people say mcfatter is ghetto lol furthest thing from. Sheridan in the other hand is def ghetto went and saw with my own eyes. Best way to choose a school is by their board pass rates. BC is up in the 90s I. Def going there always has been my first choice. Not to mention they are finishing ier second new building for thnursing program. Once that's done no one ill be able to compete with them. I was looking into excelsior I actually heard from someone who graduated from there she says its the best choice she made but I'm really iffy on the whole online thing. Do you have to pass the hesi? The pharm was hard not going to lie. The med surg wasn't so bad you'll be surprised how good you'll do. I'm glad we got to see how different the schools are from each other throughout the year, can't be,I'd've were almost done, 89 days until our graduation nov 14. Can't wait I'm ready to take this nclex and get a job. He's anyone else heard about excelsior? Seems too good to be true

    I personally thought about excelsior, but the thought of having no teacher scares me, plus the skills test at the end i heard was nerve wracking. I'm thinking of going to a private school. There's 2 I'm looking at. Takes exactly one year.

    Starting Monday the 19th starts block 3 for us. I thought I would like maternity, but after reading the book, it made my eyes cross. Lol

    I'm trying to figure out how much time I'm gonna give myself to take the nclex. I'm thinking maybe 3 weeks. December 10th can come fast enough!

    Going good! We've got 6 tests left. Really supposed to be 5 but we added one. Just been going to clinicals and stuff. Same old.

    Met with some of your classmates at 7th avenue clinic a couple of weeks ago. Nice ppl.

    Do we have to pass the exit hesi in order to graduate?

    I dont know but ppl are not too happy about graduation at our school. We were told we had to pay for brochures, invitations, seat covers, etcetera. And then we wouldn't be progressed of we didn't clean up afterwards. Take down curtains, covers off chairs, etc. do you guys have to do this bull too? I've never heard if anything like this in my life. Lmao. 40 days and counting!

    Oh and my teacher said they are changing some things. Now ALL PN programs will start on the same day. No more different start dates for each school. Don't know if it starts for the next block or not.

    YESSSS we had to pay for our decorations and what not kind of funny... We have to pay but have no say I'm anything.... A bunch of bulll!!!! Too and we didn't run into each other! Wah! We're done! Tomorrow is our last clinical and I'm skipping cause I have a few hours to spare. No school Monday, Tuesday we go in for some paper work and Wednesday is rehearsal! I paid for my nclex back on October 16 just did my finger prints so I'm ready to go just waiting for them to send our names. I don't know if I like that same date thing then it's like an ambush of nurses tryin to get jobs all at the same time. One of my friends from the previous block took her nclex it cut off at 85 and she had 25 select all!!! My other friend unfortunately had 205 she said most of it was things we didn't really go over.. Lots of questions about chemical war fair and anthrax she had some out in order questions about skills like catheter eye drops etc. after hearing all of that I am now scared! She also said every drug was on there we NEVER learned except Coumadin and that's the 3rd time I e heard that from someone so if you have the lpn pdq tiny booklet go over the drugs I'm there seems like they would be on the test.. Also heard to focus on hypertension and diabetes

    And no you don't have to pass any of the hesi''s. (Unless you failed a section) other than that doesn't matter hey try and say you need to pass so you get a better score and raise their rankings as a nursing program but it's not mandatory but they might start making it because most of us half ass it and their scores must be dropping

    That's go great! We graduated on Tuesday! It was great!

    IV course is next week. I have not paid for my test yet. I plan on taking it next month.

    What did you use to study? Saunders? And did you find the test similar to Saunders questions?

    What testing center did you test at?

    I'm so happy for you! Now are you job hunting?

    Hello everyone and congratulations on graduating. I just started the lpn program at sheridan tech and I'm currently doing core online. Is there any advice anyone can give me about what I can expect from the program.

    Don't slack on your reading. Don't get behind on studying. Because there will be 2-3 tests a week. Good luck!
