i also went through 13mo's program,pre-reqs included. if you can make it first term, you're in a good shape, however it will be getting tough and harder, study group might help, i prefer to study alone, attend class daily(yes it counts,everybody knows!) , and try not to work if you don't have to, i had to work and i passed all my classes just enough to pass!, i regret it,i know i could've done better w/ more studying time, so don't do it! aim for above passing grades! some of my classmates were failing bcos their grades were just not enough to pass, which is sad! so study hard and enjoy your nursing school!
