    The same thing happened to me...I scored really high on the first test...low on the 2nd (Fluid & Electrolytes, acid base, etc....what saved me was my 1st test score......study really hard for the final.....you can do it....believe in yourself and study your butt off....I believe the same thing happens at every campus....My class January 2012 has a record for being the smallest group for process 2 (North Campus)....Before us, they would have like 10 students in a clinical group...for us, we had 5 students in each group....A lot of people failed....it was just so sad to see that.
    Hello! I start the program next month at North. I wanted to know what should I be doing now to prepare myself for my first semester? I am currently working on my weaknesses A&P and Math. I feel like I have forgotten everything from these classes which I got A's. Any advice would be great from anyone currently in the program.


    Thank you!

    Hello Dixon!....What I did before starting the program was read "Test for Success"...I did chapter 1-5 from the "Drug Calculations" textbook....I found that it helped me....especially the math...Make sure you stay on top of your reading.....Study as if you are failing the course.....You have to think that way....Get your "Fundamental" book and start reading....Go on Professor Brickman web page (Get the reading list and start reading now)....before I started the program, I read vital signs and physical assessment.....Process 1 is a lot of reading...A LOT!!!....You need to get started now....I passed the course with a "C".....I believe we started with 89 students....about 40 people withdrew after the first exam...about 30-40 students moved on to process 2.....Good luck to you!

    At North Campus...our final test was the hardest...A student received high "B's" for the
    first two exams and ended up failing the class....At North campus the final was a hot mess!!!!
    I have been thinking the same thing recently (changing school)....I started the program with a 3.75....And now I have a 3.45.....my GPA keeps dropping because of all these "C's"....It is possible to get B's but it is not easy....My plan is to work a little harder and approach these specialties as if I'm failing....In GI GU I failed the first test horrible....I knew that I was in extreme danger to fail the course....I knew why a failed the test so I made sure I studied really hard (I passed the 2nd test with a "B")....I never received a "C" before nursing shool and so far I have three "C's"....it really bothers me. Some people say - "C" means Continue....I don't believe that....I am not a student that settles for less....GPA matters A LOT....And I am not going to settle for that.....I am definitely going to try to earn some "B's" from here on out....Good luck to you!

    Dixon, forget about A&P. Start reading that Process 1 textbook word for word, page for page. You will not be tested on factual/biological information. The class really teaches you how to process information and think critically. That's one of the reasons why many students take the class over because they approach the exams like a history exam. Practice questions are the main reason why I haven't failed a class yet so invest in test books.

    I was disappointed by the C's in this program as well. You are never safe from failing. I passed 1 GIGU test and 1 OB test yet I still passed both classes and I doubt I could have studied any harder. I'm trying to go to grad school and the C's do not look good on my transcript but the B's are definitely more attainable in the specialties, especially Psych. You do have to treat every test as though you need a high 90 to pass and the exams you think you did really well in are the ones you usually fail. #Lifeofanursingstudent
