    It's a hard program, but you will love it!! Study hard, don't fall into any of the "drama" (like there is with most schools),pay attention to your teachers and not rumors from other sections. But the required books, but not the recommended ones until you get to class and see if you think you need them. (Save your money!) You will do great!

    Congrats!

    It looks like I'm slated for the program Winter 2009.
    When you do a winter start, does your class track look something like this?

    Winter 2008: NSG120, NSG126

    Spring/Summer: 150, 155

    Fall: 221, 222

    Winter 2009: 250, 255

    Just preparing for the future

    This is some great advice/tips! Just concentrate on what YOU are doing and not all the rumors that float around. And FYI- if u have a problem with your clinical instructor or need help clarifying lecture material, go to your FULL-TIME faculty/teacher. Do not wait until it is too late. They have office hours for a reason, use them. I am saying this cuz some ppl tend to not follow the chain of command; you must approach your teacher first and try to resolve it. Complaining to the dean will get u in whole lotta trouble that u won't want. It is a big adjustment for most students first semester so some things may be confusing but seek out help where you should.

    Here are some things I have seen (and were warned about before I began): do not gossip about teachers or other students. There are ppl who like to stir the pot and you never know if that person will be in a future class or clinical. So be nice to everyone even though outside of school you would never be friends. You want to stay under the radar, do not act like a know-it-all and be proactive not reactive. We are all here for a common goal and you will meet many wonderful ppl and have a fun time 'learning' to be a nurse. Make it a positive experience the choice is yours.
