    Update: I registered for the intro to professional nursing course for the summer term, this is the last step before I find out if I got accepted for the Fall term second semester.

    Congrats!!! Thank you for updating us, the forum has been steadily growing. I went on Pbsc website to see how many seats were open in the intro to professional nursing classe and I couldn't even find the class itself so I'm guessing it's full. I'm sure you'll be accepted just keep in touch with Mrs Rhonda and see where you are on her list. Did you take your ACE exam yet? And are you transition to the accelerated or generic?

    You can try Miami Dade. They offer a transition program for people already licensed in the healthcare field.
    Hey, are you still going to Mercy hospital?

    How was the ACE, would you say it was hard? Also why the generic over the accelerated?

    The test was not bad at all, Its similar to the Nclex exam. The material that I used to study was the Nclex 3500 CD along with the Saunders Nclex book (Fundamentals section). I remember seeing a couple of simple drug calculation questions. Remember the drugs Nitroglycerin, Aspirin, digoxin, coumadin, you should know about the different routes of medication administration: subcutaneous, intramuscular, sublingual, z-track etc. Know the parts of a stethoscope (bell, diaphragm), know where to place the stethoscope in order to listen to heart sounds, therapeutic communication, safety questions, and basic med surg questions, that’s all I can remember from the exam, I hope that helps.

    The reason why I didn’t choose the accelerated option is because the clinicals are every Saturday and I'm a Seventh Day Adventist, If I get accepted for the fall term I would take the lecture online to cut down on the days I would actually have to drive to school.

    Okay, maybe the generic might be a better option anyway.
