    The full time program is very fast paced. We have 2 exams a week and are usually very far ahead in lecture material before we take an exam. For example, yesterday we took an exam on material we learned a few weeks ago because our instructors have been flying through the material and can only give us 2 tests a week. You have to devote time to it if you want to succeed, we've had about 15 people fail out since we began in September and usually lose at least one if not more everytime we finish a section.

    The clinical uniform has to be purchased through the school. The uniform company comes in October and measures you for your uniform and you should receive it a week or so later. I think the average cost is somewhere between $65-$100 depending on what you get. I personally paid about $68 for the scrub pants, top, and apron.

    The uniforms are terrible. They're not normal scrubs, there's white pants and a white zip up top with a collar. Then there's a blue smock/apron you have to wear and its awful. Clinicals are at a county run nursing home, Good Samaritan hospital, Helen Hayes hospital, and a school for disabled children.

    Question for ya....I attend the Northern/Westchester Boces. I too hope to graduate this June. What will you guys be wearing for graduation? Here they wanted us to be uniformed with the same white nursing dress, but unfortunately the company they were using went out of business and the Administrator is searching for another uniform company. What company does your school use for uniforms?

    Thanks in advance.
