I'm really excited, but upon reading I keep hearing how extremely hard and almost undo able this program will be...and how the teacher like to see you fail. It absolutely brings down my confidence and makes me feel like Im not... Read More
- 0Apr 5, '13 by philly7777I have taken all of the prerequisites and have a total of 69 points on the adn rubric and was wondering whether or not i will get into the program. Also, I know that people who study the night before tests will fail out of the program, but what if I study a week in advance? I feel confident that I will be able to pass the program but I am just discouraged by all the people on this site saying that it is impossible to pass the program! I would appreciate any info or knowledge from anyone that has passed or is in the program currently. What is it like and what is to be expected???

From my unfortunate personal experience I failed an exam that I studies only a few days for. I would say that at the very least you should study a week, also going over what you learned in class that very same night works too. I know that this is easier said than done. Also, the test get a little harder as the semester goes, so don't think that just because you did we'll on the first one with little studying that that's how it's gonna be, trust me, the exams change a bit. Make sure you study for the calculations exam bc you must pass that before you can stay in the class, even if you get in the program that is like the last hoop they make you jump through. Best wishes!
- 0May 13, '13 by booyah07EKU nursing program is not about education, how well (how much) you study or how much your understand the nursing process. It's all based on how well you can read an exam question decide who wrote it & answer based on that instructor's notes, power points or lectures.
The last semester I was there we had 4 different lab values for BUN alone for exams, we were told to read our books, which I did, even bought a study guide for our book to test myself before exams only to be told to not use book information for exams but what was said in class.
No way I would suggests anyone goes to a public college for nursing. Go private & pay for a real education not college's concern or boosting about nlcex pass rate. Pass rate only explains a few things; how well the student can take nlcex exam type questions, how well the college cuts out the students on the line, but in no way does it show how deep the students understand patients, disease progress, medications, or how to treat patients.
