    I need some insight. I am currently in the patho class for Lamar. How did you study for this class. The reading is a lot. I have focused on the key notes and the study guide. Past students that have taken this class...HELP Please. How did you get through it? I have never had this much trouble retaining information.

    Help!! I am enrolled in the lamar program and found out my husband will be transferring with his job to Kansas after I graduate! Does anyone have any info regarding testing? Will Kansas accept lamars program? Can I just apply for a Kansas license or should I just take the NCLEX and get a Texas license, then apply for endorsment? Any info would be a great help!

    momkolton,
    I am in the assessment class at Lamar. I had transfer credit for patho. What helped me the most was watching little short animations at youtube.com.
    Good luck....... Russell Roach

    Can someone tell me what schools does Lamar accept the Patho class from? This question is mainly for people who transferred their Patho into the program.

    My husband is in the Lamar program. He took Patho at Lone Star College. However, I think any patho will do as long as it's 3 units.

    Arle58,
    Congradulations! I had to drop 2514 this summer and restart in August, just finished! whew! Ok I am ready for 2535. I always read the question and think, I read that or I know that but never really thought of using maslow's conciously. ABC's just comes naturally but now they teach CAB in PALS and ACLS so it gets a little confusing. I used Saunders as a VN for NCLEX and found it helpful. I keep reading about getting patches and uniforms. I plan to do my clinicals through my current job did they have you purchase these? In this class did you find the text helpful? I know I had a better start on the 2nd round of 2514. I also found the more NCLEX questions I answered the better.

    Read more about it on the BON website. FAQ's about the Nursing Licensure Compact. It appears if you are moving permanently you will need to be licensed there. You can test here but will have to meet requirements for that state. I would check and see what ther requirements are for Kansas.

    Hello,
    I took my Patho at Paris Jr College. It was not that hard but I've had years for the A and P, Micro to sink in plus 19 years as a Lvn.
    Good luck............ Russell Roach

    Hey everyone. I graduated from Lamar State College in May 2012. They paid for us to take the Kaplan Course, and if you passed all exams on the Kaplan course and passed the NCLEX on the first try they would refund you the money you paid for registering to take the NCLEX. I took the Kaplan course, and passed all exams in the course and passed the NCLEX on the first try with only 76 questions, then I contacted Lamar State College and could never get a hold of anyone so that they can refund me my money as they promised. I decided not to pursue it since I was just too exited that I passed the NCLEX and had the KAPLAN course for free. About the Hesi, I passed both exams. While I was a student I studied for the Hesi using the Saunders NCLEX question book. For the NCLEX, I only studied answering questions in the KAPLAN course, I didn't actually take the course because I was lazy. I only answered the questions in the Kaplan Tests, as that was the main requirement from the school. Personally the NCLEX is alot harder than the Hesi. I thought all exams were very hard, however for me the NCLEX was the hardest. The Kaplan course states that the first 10 question of the NCLEX are the most important and you should try to get those correct because they increase your chances of passing the NCLEX. To my surprise all my first 10 questions were "SELECT ALL THAT APPLY" I was really bad at those. I never expected half of my exam to be "select all that apply". I was so upset when the exam shut off at 76 question I was sure I failed, I left there crying. To my surprise I passed, I was surprised because that was the hardest exam I have ever taken. I had heard the Hesi was a lot harder than the NCLEX, I don't believe this is true. If you do pass the Hesi, continue to study a lot for the NCLEX. My advise to you is while you are a student practice all types of questions, you don't know what type of exam you will have. I heard some students only had 2 select all that apply questions. As for me, half of my test was select all that apply. Overall I think Lamar State College is a good program. I learned so much there. It is an accredited school. You can get your RN license from graduating from that school and passing the NCLEX. Most importantly you can get a real job, after becoming an RN. I just got hired as an RN II at Memorial Hermann. For those of you who fail the HESI, don't give up continue to try harder, but if you can't pass the HESI, most likely you will not pass the NCLEX.

    I am currently in the program set to graduate in August 2013. I thoroughly enjoy the program and I have learned a lot already. I was looking up some information for a friend of mine on their website and it stated that all future class dates past the January 7th start date have been put on hold and only students currently enrolled can finish the program at this time. Does anyone know why this is?
