    I have worked as a PCA for several years. My opinion is that you will have the knowledge of patient care, medical terminology, & how to properly work within the units. You pretty much learn the basics of nursing care. I think having a your foot in the door is helpful when it comes to transitioning within your facility. So being a CNA/PCA is beneficial in that manner.

    I'm glad to see this thread is still going on. I really needed to read this post. I too failed my first class. I decided to try other nursing programs but, none of them made me feel comfortable. I can only explain it like buying a good pair of shoes you know the kind that looks great on your feet, and feels so dam good your like oh yeah... I'm going to funk these!! Lol that's how I feel about the program am in.

    On the other hand I'm like yikes.... because I'm at one of the strictest campuses out off the whole entire college system in my county. I can do strict but sometimes it is way... to overboard. That played a huge part in me coming back to this school. However; I decided to bite the bullet. Now I can move forward. I will start in January 2015 a year later.

    God Bless everyone on this thread and don't give up on your dreams.

    @ Be(you)tiful Hello How has the program been In your opinion? Are all the horror stories true? Also by having to retrack does that mean you had to go to LPN school and are you now an LPN? Just trying to make sure im fully understanding. Any info your willing to give will be greatly appreciated.

    To answer you question. No I am not an LPN. You are giving what some of us call "1 golden ticket" that is the first time you enter the program. You want to do your very best to not fail. If you do fail like myself you will have to go to through a process of taking the TABE reading test, Skills Review (that's if you are out of the clinical setting for more than 6 weeks) which you will be. Also you will take SLS class geared towards nursing.
    I would suggest if you can get the Attachment 15711book and start reading Chapters 1,2,3,6,39,28,29,30, as a start you will be ahead of most. You can fail by less that 1/2 a point. The Professors don't play. Also The Fundmamentals of Success book by Nugent & Vitale. Will help to train you in thinking and answering nursing questions correctly. That's my advice to you all.

    To Piggyback off of dream61792 is saying. I feel it's not what you know it it is who you know as well. I'm a former employee of Memorial and Broward Health, and when I went back to do my clinicals with BC. I was happy and surprised that I received business cards from former ADN nurses who are now BSN and MSN nurses who would love to hire me as well. Mind you I was in Process 1 when this happened. I also feel that no matter what school you go to all that matters is that once you pass your NCLEX that's all that matters. Each nursing school for profit or not is looking for one thing and is our money and we are looking to accomplish one thing that is to get our state board license. That is the jackpot.

    Your state board license is the golden ticket. If you can pass that then whatever school and studying you did paid off.

    I have now decided to retrack for January 2015 because I've visited other schools and only feel comfortable at BC. Even though I'm a South campus student Lord knows how I feel about that. The only thing I can do is to push forward and make it happen.

    Also... dream61792 I agree with you and I am sure Miami hospitals feels like that about the schools in their area. The way I see it is all nursing schools make you go through hell and high water to get through their program. Nursing isn't a degree that comes easy. That's just my 2 cents.

    Don't give up. I haven't taken the NCLEX yet but, I know someone who took it 5 times as well. She passed on the 6th try. It must be frustrating, but I say be encourage. Delay does not mean denial. Hugs to you and keep studying. The fact that you have not given up means your a fighter and you want this. It will happen soon. Best of luck and God bless.

    Hi Amglover93,
    I attend Davie campus in Fort Lauderdale. Currently in Funds 2 getting ready for Med Surg. in the fall yeah..I plan on waiting a year to begin my BSN program. From there I plan to move up to MSN or DNP. I work already in a hospital that I love so I plan on staying there. In order to reach these goals I will continue to study hard and engage in resources that will help me pass the exit exams every quarter. A lot of students don't realize that its more to do besides the assignments on the syllabus. My cohort doesn't practice many rationales. I try to explain that part but they think I over do it. Any who my favorite books to help me succeed are Mary Ann Hogan reviews and Rationales and Success books Davis, Nugent and of course Saunders Nclex. This is my second nursing program and I'm doing so much better than my former college. Good luck in your classes.
