    When I read the title of this post I thought it was going to examine why nursing students get fat in school, LOL.

    My 2 cousins graduated from McFatter in 05 and 07. They both agreed that McFatter is tough and you'll get a better education from there; but Sheridan has less drama going on there (Their mother switched schools from McFatter to Sheridan halfway through her term.) I personally think that it's hard working with women in general. I see it all the time in the hospital I work at.

    I start term 1 at McFatter Aug. 24. I don't really need a laptop, do I?

    No you don't need a laptop. A rolling backpack is a great thing to get though to carry all the books!

    Hello! I am considering going to Mcfatter in January if I do not get into the RN program @ BC or FAMU. The orientation I will be attending is sept. 24 and i just want to know how the TEAS were? I just took the HESI @ FAU in august and just wanted to know if it is similar to the TEAS? i was exempt from the TABE test because I have a two year degree from BC (A.A. degree in nursing).
    I am currently @ FIU to bring up my GPA for BC & FAMU's program but if I do not get in I will continue with Mcfatter. Also, FIU just closed there LPN to BSN september of 2008 because I would have been applied if they kept it going.

    Write back please.

    *bump* Hoping to revive this thread!

    I just registered for the online core at Mcfatter for April. Anyone taking the classroom or online core in April?

    Also, Mcfatter grads: What was your overall impression of the program? I've looked at pass rates but it seems like they lose about 25% of the total students before the NCLEX.
    Where did you do your clinicals? I've gotten a very vague answer but I'm in Palm beach county so I'd like to be prepared for the drive!

    Any other advice? Ways to deal with the pace of the program would be much appreciated.

    I will finish Term III at McFatter this week. It's true that many people don't graduate. I wouldn't say the program is hard; I'd say it's tedious at times. As long as you read the material over and over until you retain it you'll do just fine. My Term I clinical was at Plantation Nursing Home & Rehab Center. Terms II and III clinicals were at Cleveland Clinic Hospital. I took core online. It's really easy. To prepare for the rest of the program I suggest you find some practice NCLEX questions online. Those are the kind of questions in the test bank. Good luck.

    So what are the course schedules like for the first term?? how many classes do you take first term?? and how can I prepare myself for the program in June??

    I received my A.A degree in nursing from BC so I would be eliminated from some of the classes.

    Thanks

    Hey SuccessfulbyFAITH88,

    Did you officially get in for June or are you taking the core this April?
