- May 3, '12 by TempestKayneIs it just me, or did anyone else receive another letter stating the orientation is June 20th?? but yet the acceptance letter states June 10th?
- May 4, '12 by gbayck9There was a typo in the original letter. The orientation is June 20th.
- May 4, '12 by krissy3hi mxdp95 , i am taking evening classes so i can answer some of your questions. the evening program takes the same amount of time as the daytime program: four semesters, two years. i'm not sure if it's actually "easier" since you're taking the exact same classes either way and the requirements are identical, but if you're getting all of your prereqs out of the way before beginning the program, it will obviously take a lot off your shoulders and allow you to focus on the nursing classes only. i can't imagine taking classes like microbiology while taking nursing classes!
i did hear it's a little less competitive to get into the evening program which is a good thing; however, there are still hundreds of people applying for 80 seats. but, if you work hard and do well on the hesi, you will have no issues getting into the program. someone mentioned studying chem and bio over the summer; i couldnt agree more
best of luck and let me know if you have any questions!!
- May 4, '12 by eileen17arnhopeful..... my score on the hesi was 88.25 and I'm out of county. They give preference to bergen county students first and then out of county. Good luck!!!
- May 7, '12 by Elfie2012Declined my spot. Rnhopeful- hopefully you will get a letter!
- May 8, '12 by rnhopeful1Thanks ekfie, but I pretty sure I'm retaking the hesi, shouldn't be too hard to raise my score from a 78 to a 90...just gotta improve in chem.
- May 8, '12 by Sliz128I got declined also for the fall but I am taking more courses and reapplying for spring! My HESI was too low which stinks because i have a high gpa, but the book didn't help with the test at all so at least now I know for next time!
- May 8, '12 by j83087Hi all,
Tomorrow is my last day of level II! Congratulations to those who have made it into the program for the fall and good luck to those who are applying.
To answer some questions from earlier posts, clinical days are not set in stone. The clinical times that are posted on webadvisor change depending on what clinical sites are available. You are randomly placed into a clinical and a professor may and may not try to accommodate your needs. The best thing to do is be as open as possible.
For those of you going into level one, really concentrate when you learn the "nursing process" because it will follow you for the duration of the program.
My most important advice is to do ample amounts of NCLEX questions. Find a group of friends to study with. Each one of you should purchase a different NCLEX book. Before an exam get together and complete all NCLEX questions relating to the test topic.
Good luck to all of you!
- May 14, '12 by jimmygneccoi think he most important part about any class is just PAYING ATTENTION and having GOOD NOTES, as long as you do those two things, we all should be good
- May 17, '12 by missmooneI've said it before and I'll say it again.. from day one you will learn very quickly that TIME MANAGEMENT is a must.. for the next 2 years( 4 semesters) you will find that managing your time wisely will come of great help in having enough time to UNDERSTAND the material being taught. Socializing will be few and far between. A good study partner(who's totally focused) may be beneficial. But it'll be of your own accord how much you put into being comfortable with the material being taught. If you can get a head with practicing nclex questions.. then you'll be off to a good start. Critical thinking is the mindset you'll have to acquire as you're going through this program. It's not easy but the further you get the more comfortable you'll be with the concept. Good luck to all who have been accepted in to the program.. and get ready to hit the ground running!
