I posted a while ago in the Illinois section. No reply so I thought I'd see if it was just because its just not an active area or if there is no one on here from JJC. So anyway, anyone put in their application during the Aug... Read More

    Dancingkayla25- I was really surprised that the average test score for the first theory test was 80%. I did a little above that, but still didn't do as well as I had hoped. I'm really lucky to have an awesome clinical instructor who really helps us to keep all of the stuff we have to do this semester prioritized and on track. I am sure you will succeed, I know it is a lot of work though! Keep your head up and feel free to message me if you want, I know exactly how you feel!! It is only 4 semesters and you got here because you earned it and you deserve it!!

    Thanks emerald1. I scored an 86% on my first Theory test. I'm know I should be happy with that grade but I can't shake the letter grade idea (lowest B possible). Did you say you were nights? You are lucky to have a clinical instructor who is keeping you all on track because I feel like my group was thrown into shark infested waters without life jackets . I'm holding my own overall though and I'm gonna DO THIS!!! Good luck and I'm sure I'll be talking to ya soon.

    I had the teacher who quit last minute... All of us who had her are wondering what happened. I feel bad for you guys who should've had her because she was AMAZING! I can't believe only a couple of you guys passed the first exam. You'll get the hang of it soon. Take advantage of classes that Michelle and the rest of the NSL team has to offer, they are great tools. Take it day by day and feel free to ask any questions should you have any. Good luck guys =)

    I'm in the middle of my second semester, and if there's one thing I've learned.....don't listen to opinions about instructors. Not only is it distracting, but most of the time it's meaningless because everyone has a different opinion. It all depends on how a person scores on that instructor's test. Bad grade=Dislike for teacher, Good grade=Best instructor ever. It's all a matter of opinion. Good luck and try not to worry about those things because honestly...it does not matter one bit because there is nothing you can do to change it.

    May I ask how the first semester was for you? What topics are covered in the second semester?

    First semester was very basic. Much of the focus was on the nursing process and how to "think" like a nurse. Believe it or not, many students had a difficult time with the concept. Being book smart does not always correlate to being a good nurse. I don't remember many actual medical topics...I know diabetes was studied. It's only been a year but my brain is on overload so pardon my terrible memory. Nursing school becomes one big blur of information that eventually comes together as you progress. It will make sense to you soon if you are in the program. Good luck!
