    HI METOYOU! CONGRATULATIONS ON MAKING IT INTO THIS AMAZING PROGRAM! Well, in fundamentals, you are at school 3 or 4 days a week. if you have checkoffs, you will be at the school 4, but primarily, it will be two days of lecture (one day for fundamentals and one for pharmacology) and then one day of lab. After about a 6 weeks (in October) you will start clinicals, most likely going into Geriatrics first. So in the first 6-8 weeks, you wont have clinicals. In regards to books, I can only speak for myself and although i have an nclex book (Saunders), I have yet to really use it as a study tool as yet. I may try and do a couple of things this summer, but your text book and your textbook study book is what is helpful... and of course the powerpoints. You will find that the books they ask you to get is MORE than enough. I think the pharmacology study guide is very helpful and I believe that book was optional, not required for us.

    Just wanted to let know whoever is interested that I will be selling my books from first year. I will sell it for less than what you can get from so let me know if anyone is interested! I already bought mine from the graduating class and soooo happy because I saved a good deal. First year books are EXPENSIVE!!! Expect to spend at least $500 for books and supplies. I think I spent about $600 including uniform.

    Hello Ladies! I applaud ALL of you in your effort and I hope your journey is going well. I have applied and wish to get into GTC's 2014 program! Yes I am preparing far in advance, but I was hoping that one of you would email the Kaplan Exam study guide to me? I would like to began preparing and studying for this test as I am a HORRIBLE test taker! Thanks in advance to anyone ready and willing!

    Thanks so much! We all are so excited! I wish there was something we could send you. But there isn't. What most of us did was go buy the Kaplan study guide from the bookstore or studied our A & P notes. The sheets they sent to us in the email didn't have any kind of study guide on there. Just a couple of examples of questions...which is in the book. Good luck to you in getting in! It's so hard but so worth it! Just do the practice questions, I'm a horrible standardized test taker also so I feel you.

    Talk to you later,

    hey Kiki. if you don't mind my asking....I am also trying to apply for '14 and was told that the ANP questions/answers are made into some kind of paragraph form. Could you possibly shed some light on how the questions are asked? Thanks!

    When you took the math you didn't mention much of word problems. does that mean there will not be many on the test? I sure hope so because the samples Mrs/Ms Jackson provided were confusing. as far as the tablets with aspirin X grains and stuff of that nature.
