    A friend at Quincy College is taking pre-reqs there and loves it. Courses at Bunker Hill (from my experience) will not prepare you enough for nursing school. I've had to re-teach myself a lot of A&P along the way. I took all my pre-reqs at bhcc, it was cheap but I didn't learn as much as I would have liked to.

    Thank you so much for your feedback!! Truly appreciate it. Just another question, how many days a week were your classes? For your clinical semester, how many days a week do u have clinical and how many lecture courses in addition!?
    During Fall and Spring I had class 4 days/week. I will have clinical once a week but I think next semester its twice a week, not sure. During the fall I took 4 lecture courses (12credits), and spring 3 lecture courses, 1 lab and 1 clinical along with those same 3 courses. So class 3 days and clinical the 4th day. You're welcome!

    I would definitely say something, it is in your child's best interest. I stand up for my child as well, more often now that I am in nursing school and am more aware of what should really happen. "Please wash your hands before you touch him/her, thank you." "If you don't know how to do it please call for help.." You may prevent something bad from happening to you, your child, or another patient in the future.

    To everyone who started this program, how has this first semester been? How has clinicals been, what type of schedule have you had? Has anyone continued to work? Thanks!!!
    First semester was very stressful but doable. I learned lots of new information which meant studying everyday for me. Second semester is equally difficult in the amount of information we need to learn, but it feels less stressful because some information is repetitive. Despite the stress, I love it and have learned a lot. I feel very prepared to begin clinicals. I start clinicals next week and am very excited. I will be at a hospital in Boston and know most of my classmates will also be in Boston hospitals. My schedule has been weekday mornings for all my classes, and the only problem I had in regards to scheduling was clinical 7am-3pm (I had to figure out dropping my child off at school). Everyone at Simmons is very supportive and willing to help with anything. Theres a sense of family, where everyone wants everyone to succeed. Love Simmons

    I'm a student, just looking for personal experiences at different locations.

    Would anyone like to share any experiences they have had working as an RN in or around Boston? Any favorite locations, and why? Also, what do you think is most important when deciding to work somewhere? (other than actually getting the job) Thanks!

    sounds like mine haha. I told him to stay up with me while I finished my homework a couple of nights in a row (during finals week of course) and then asked him to tell me during what time I should do laundry, food shop, make a food shopping list, cook, wash dishes, clean, rest etc. He got the point (he admitted he wouldn't be able to do it all either) and we worked on a schedule where we rotated chores and if I get really stressed out with school he would help me out. Or else mr.husband is staying up all night with me to study I think it is all about positive communication. I can't get angry at him for not understanding the stresses of school (especially since he knows nothing of college), but he needs to understand, period. We're partners so we need to support and educate each other.

    Hi I'm just wondering if anyone color coded their notes while studying in Nursing school. If so, what color scheme did you use? Why? Do you have any organizational tips, in terms of organizing information in the most efficient way? Thanks! (this does not include pre-req courses)

    Your school financial aid office should have a nice big binder full.
    They do! ...big, thick binder..I will sit down and go through it this week (probably for a few hours) I just thought this would be a quicker way
