Holmes ADN Program Ridgeland- What should I expect?

  1. 0
    Okay, so I received my acceptance letter today from Holmes for their ADN program in Ridgeland. My question goes out to current and former students. What should I expect? schedule, clinicals (farthest distance, hospitals, etc.), expenses, instructors, course load, study time, ability to work during the program, and anything else anyone can think of?

    Really? I heard they had a good program. May I ask, what age group are you in? I am going to Hinds this fall in Jackson. Have you heard anything about their program from people who recently attended?

    Not that I didn't like it, per say, it just was not a good time. Haha. Most miserable year ever!! Course work was very difficult, would feel like you got the material, but wouldn't translate onto the test. The instructors I loved, 99% of the time. It's just rough. You can do it! Just be prepared to dedicate more than you thought possible. You will grow a lot in the next two years. Be prepared go put a lot of effort into this, lots of tears, blood, and guts if this is what you want.

    I haven't heard a lot about Hinds.
