    Sorry for the late in the middle of my second semester and its truly a hand full!

    Well first let me give a congratulations on being accepted to nursing school and a pat on the back for being accepted into chirst hospital school of nursing because though we are in conjunction with hudson county community college, its no walk in the park.

    As for anything extra needed to be a success, I would say the books, supplies and tools the school tells you to get are me. Any other books you may need that aren't required can be found in the school of nursing library and even online for FREE! (A word you hear few and far in between but always a and make sure you get a pen light, measuring tape, small notepad and always have two black ink pen on you for clinicals. Yes you will be involved in clinicals during your first semester!

    As far as that I think you should be ok. Other advice I have is to study study and don't forget to study but if you have any question just message me personally and I'll be sure to answer any questions you have about chirst hospital. Also you can call or visit the school yourself, they are very friendly and helpful.

    Good luck and I'll see you next semester

    But whether or not your going into 1 or 2 the second semester is both a continuation of nursing 1 and more complex material with and introduction of psych nursing. The harder in the sense that its more complex than nursing 1 so if nursing 1 is easy for you take full advantage of learning and knowing the material and not memorizing it because you will use it in nursing 2,3, and 4. All of the classes are a prerequisite for he next level up so don't memorize, really know it! Of course your going have to memorize the concrete materials like lab values and meds etc but know what they do and why they change and what theirs used for! Just think that everything you learn is what you need to be a great nurse and nursing courses are not like other courses where your sitting in class wondering what the heck are you going to be using this material on.

    I just took my 3rd exam today and I'm not too confident in my grade so learn from my mistakes and learn the material, don't memorize and don't cram this will help you greatly because all finals are comulative!

    Hello jerseygirl6 and Congratulations!!!!!! Reading through your journey has inspired me to move forward into nursing. I have been trying to figure myself out and while I'm in the medical field now working as an EMT , I just didn't know whether to go to medics or respiratory therapy. I tried RT and was accepted unfortunately it became a financial burden on me and my family. I withdrew and finished all my prereqs to grad with a Health Science AAS degree this May. I'm trying to figure out how to go about going to NJCU and HCCC for nursing. Either which way just want to thank you for your encouragement!!
    PS I read your posts that you attended day sessions, I will be going for part time I refuse to withdraw, in your experience is day time harder??

    Thank you so much! Day division is not harder because you learn the exact same material but they are different like evening division is smaller than day and you may get a different clinical experience because of the time of day/night, also like because of the snow days the evening division may have to make up more class/clinical hours than day but when choosing a division just pick one based on what time of day you learn best and your schedule of course. Plus the school is very flexible which switching divisions for a time or two just so long you let them know. I wish you all the best and trust me when I say if I can do it so can you!
