    Just a few questions about applying to Brookhaven/Mountain View... I plan to attend the infor session this month, but am anxious about a few things.
    1) Does anyone know when the next deadline is to turn in applications and will it be for the Fall 09 entrance date?
    2) Do I count my gpa in my points for admission - say a 3.0 counts 3 points? Is that how it works?
    3) What do you suggest about taking Patho or Pharm first? Which one is more difficult?

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    I think next application period is in February and yes it is for Fall 09. As for the 2nd question the answer is yes. 3rd, I took Patho before Pharm and personally it helped me to take Patho before Pharm, but that's just me, but some people take it at the same time. It just depends on your schedule and if have a lot time to devote to studying. It's up to each person, really. I'm currently taking Pharm and I'm glad I decided to take it on its own because it's a handful. Don't be anxious, everything will be fine :wink2:! I submitted my app this past week and we'll see. Wish you the best of luck! :smilecoffeecup:

    I took them at the same time & did okay. I got an A in Patho & a B in Pharm. If I could have taken them separately I would have bc it is A LOT! I would have taken Patho first. I was trying to hurry up so I could have them both on my application.

    Hey all you new Brookhaven applicants. I am 7 weeks into my first semester, and 3 weeks into clinicals. It's scary, exciting and insane all at the same time.

    Hope to see you all soon.

    to those trying to decide when to take pharm...i would recommend taking it as late as possible. my rationale? once you get into clinicals you will want those drugs to be fresh in your minds. i took pharm way too early and had to really study up on them. you will need to know cardiac meds to a "t". i just wish i had waited a little longer b4 taking pharm.

    good luck!

    i need help! does anybody still have their book from pediatrics? i have been using the wrong book! i borrowed the book from the library because i didn't have my financial aid money yet, and it isn't the right book.

    i have wong's nursing care of infants and children 7th edition and i am supposed to have wong's essentials of pediatric nursing 7th edition.

    normally i would just buy the book, but i don't think i will get it in time because our test is on monday. (test 1 and test 2 are a week apart )

    if anyone can help me please let me know! i would apprecaite it very much!

    i will either buy it from you, or if you let me borrow it for 2 weeks i will give it back.

    thanks!!

    hi i used the same book that you have when i took pediatrics. i would not worry to much it was the only class that i did not have the correct book in (some classes i did have an older edition) the book that you have has the same information just different pages and chapters. i made an a in the class even with having the wrong book. good luck!!!!

    Hi everyone,
    I am starting the BHC nursing program this spring 09. Do I have to buy all the books during success camp and from the school or are there any recent grads that are looking to sell their books? Any hints/tips on how to save money (like best place to buy scrubs, etc.) would be greatly appreciated!!
    Thanks a ton ~
