    I attended this school back in 2005 before where I am now. The program was very fast paced and to be honest alot of people didn't pass HESI and some petitioned to take it a 4th time because they were out. I went there because another professor at a different school I attended said that it was a good school. If it's closer I'd probably go there. They are both part of the same system CCC so I dont think it makes that much of a difference. I liked all the teachers there, the psych teacher is a little crazy but she was fine too (a little chinese lady) Mrs. Bouie was one of my favorites also. Well that was my year in 2005. Might be a bit different now but I don't know. Good luck with which ever one you pick.

    oh and another thing, you don't really get to pic instructors or your clinical instructor beyond the first semester. They team teach the subjects so you will get everyone. Your schedule will be automatically made for you every semester.

    Thank u for your feedback. Do you know how many students graduated that year with you compared to the actual number of students that started the program. Ppl are always telling me that nearly half always fail and drop out, especially during the second year of the program. So scary...

    I know by the end, more than half was lost just to the program, we started with 60 I lost some then the LPNs joined up, but to be honest I dont know how many graduated maybe 40 or a little less, it was a while ago and I can't remember exactly but I know only about 12 people passes HESI the first time. Don't worry about what people tell you, you get in there and do what you gotta do and you'll be fine. It's tough but only for 4 semesters. and who knows, you might find it easy.

    You'll be fine, keep that motivation that you have now. If i were you I would buy the fundamental's success and the saunder's Nclex review book. You should use these along with your regular study to prepare for test etc. That's something that they didn't tell us until second year and they should have said it at the beginning of nursing school. Even if you breezed through your prereqs (As I did) that is the easy part. They question style and test taking is different from the prereq classes and that's why alot of people don't do as good because its not about regurgitating information, it's about being able to give the instructor the answer that he/she is looking for and critical thinking which takes some practice for some people. If you start with those books now, and constantly review the nursing process you will be off to a good start. Use the disks that com with books too the qustion are usuallya little more challenging than to book, but the reviews are excellent. I think you are going to do great, Good luck with the program. I still have all my old nursing books from Daley some of them were that same as the ones we are using at Chicago State. Lemme know if you have any questions or need some help with some things. Care plans are a pain in the butt to do also but they will help you with focusing on what the nurse does for the patients. Ok this is getting lengthly so I am gonna end it here, I just love your entheusiasm and want you to keep it, and keep pushing even if things get a little tough, you will be fine.
