    Just seconding what Dixon Future NP said. I'm at south campus, just finished nur process I with a B, it takes work but it can be done. I was not pulling allnighters everyday or spending every waking moment studying. However I did read my chapters before class, went of the slides before and after class and looked over questions in the fundamental success book and online on the elsiever site for the Perry and Potter text. Kept on top of assignments for clinicals, practices in the lab and practiced math questions. I was stressed everyday but I made it and you can too.

    I can only speak for the campus I'm at. I have no problems at south.

    I'd say choose your campus by which one is closer to you and maybe the hospitals they do clinicals at.

    One difference I know about is the times for the demo exams. At south you do it after 4 or 5 weeks and the vital signs assessment & ppe is one week the next week you do the physical assessment one, 25 and 30 mins respectively. At central its later in the term but its all together and 1hr.

    Another difference is on the times and days classes are done. I didn't save the schedules for the other campuses so I not sure if it was north or central but I saw some classes (not clinicals) were late afternoon. At south the latest class ends at 5 and you only have it for 4 wks (maths). Pharm is until 3 once a week.

    I really can't say one campus is better than another I love South and we have the newest, state of the art lab. One of the professors likes to say that its second only to UM not sure how true that is.

    Regardless of the campus it all depends on you, I know someone who actually moved her family up north just because she wanted to go to north campus her classmates went to south, she had to retrack and her classmates are in psych now.

    Anyway if you choose south I can steer you to the best lecturers in the classes you have a choice.

    I like north also. The instructors are seasoned and they are very organized. You can make the grade. You have to come in knowing you will be putting effort in though.

    Hi Ladies/Gents,

    How is Nursing Processing 1 going for you? I see some of you withdrawn or maybe starting over. I say don't give up!!! How are your professors so far? Are they helpful or down give a toot if you pass or fail? Did study groups help you or do you study alone?

    Process 1 is done, process 2 started Oct 22. It's mostly your work getting you ahead in the program there are some helpful professors but you have to make the effort. If they see you trying and asking questions, willing to take direction and correction they help.

    As far as studying I say stick to what works for you, if you like groups then do that, if you study better alone, do that.

    We just had our med admin practical exam and everybody who passes start going to hospital clinicals next week.
