    By the way your awesome! You give great info! Just a FYI
    Thx I know how intimidating it can be starting the PSC nursing program, especially with it's reputation for being hard. I don't mind helping people know what to expect.

    Then spring 102? then fall 2013 nurs 201? and spring 2014 nurs 202 and 211?

    A lot I already had from working as an LPN. Some you can find at nursing uniform stores (stethscope, penlight, shoes, scissors, etc). Measuring tape I forgot where but anything you need you can just get off amazon, walgreens, office supply, etc.

    Nursing 111 is either in the summer or the fall. It depends on if there are enough spots open to register for it (if you're trying for the summer) by the time your number is called to hand in your registration. I recommend taking it in the summer so you don't have to take it in the fall along with 101. And you got the rest right. 102 in spring, then 201 in fall of 2013 and 202 in 2014. I'm not sure about 211. Actually I'm not even sure if there is one O_o If there is it's not being offered this summer so idk.

    You can take other classes if you want I imagine. I've never heard of anyone doing that before but I'm sure it's happened. But unless its like Nurs 111 along with Nurs 101, I would NOT recommend that. If I didn't already have my LPN and had gone through a nursing program already I don't think I would even still be in the PSC program. First semester wasn't horrible for me but keep in mind we lost over 30 students 1st semester alone. I can't imagine how much harder that would make it for someone whose unfamiliar with Nursing programs, curricula, and testing if they were taking other courses. You'll want to dedicate as much of your focus as you can to the program

    hey dc i had 132, mainly because of the 20 indistrict points because i didn't get in last year so they added additional 10 to make it 20 indistrict points. total was 137 but hesi had taken 5 away so 132 is what i got accepted in with.

    How did you get 20 in district? I got 10 in district! In the hand book starting 2013 they are only giving 5 points for indistrict

    I didn't get in last year either and I only still got 10! That's crazy cause nicole the nursing advisor said it was only ten in district! Kudos to you for getting those extra 10
