I have read a few not so great comments about the program at Essex. I was just accepted into their night/weekend program. Could somebody fill me in on the program what you like/didn't like about it. TIA Lisa
I just got in the evening and weekend program there as well
I know several students who got through the day program because I put it off for a couple of semesters for financial reasons. I've heard that the day program is tough, but doable. I have heard things about the environment not being as supportive, but I have also heard the opposite.
I'm just preparing myself mentally for it (if that is possible
). All the people I know (about 5) passed the NCLEX on the first try so they must be doing something right. I think CCBC's pass rate is about 91%.
Congrats on getting in I will probably see you at orientation!

Well I've accepted my fate and don't have a choice...it's either go now to Essex and deal with it or put it off ANOTHER semester and go to Harford OR take even more prereqs and spend more money to get into a BSN program...I've heard mixed reviews so I'd rather not start off the semester scared out of my wits. I've accepted that I will have little to no social life during the program and that I will have to live and breath my studies. I'm ok with that...no kids yet so there is no reason I can't focus all attention (besides working part-time) to the program. I've heard the horror stories and have put it off long enough because of them so I could cut back my work hours. If Nursing school is so awful, why do I know so many nurses?
I can't worry about all the negative stuff that is said about the program...the only thing I can do is have faith in myself...and that goes for anyone who chooses any nursing program...it's going to be hard no matter where you go...it's the nature of the beast.
