    I am a recent grad of CSN. It's a great school & it's extremely challenging. But the administration really works with you to suceed.I was in their fast track prgoram so I finsihed the program in a year & a half. It was extremely hard but well worth it.

    I had the priviledge of Graduating with WSmith, I was trying to get into LIU, Aldelphi, and Molloy. However I didn't do well in Statistics and I couldn't get in. So I settle for CSN. That was a BLESSING in diguise. It was cheaper, I got done in 16 months, and they work with me. I even recieve Virtual ATI program free to help me pass the NCLEX. I recommend the school.

    It is a good school...i had about three students in my micro class that were waiting for acceptance letters and were frusted because the school was taking too long to send out the letters..and b/c of it many opted for dorothy...then again with such a great influx of students applying its only logical for the school to delay but they should develop a better system...my SIL graduated from there about 5 years ago...i endured cochran through HER experience!..lol...but she did it...all i know is that just as any other nursing program STAY ON TOP of your school work/reading!...also if you remain at a B average your first two semesters you can attend their summer session and finish in a year and a half...i know of this b/c my husband applied there and this is what they told him...in my opinion i think its a great option...of course its up to ya!..whatever your decision...good luck...

    The key to graduateing is to study, study, study. Basic course is a good course the teachers are great in that class --you will have a firm grip of the fundamentals when done. The math class can be the kicker depending how you are in math. I sucked in math & ended up getting a 100 on the final. The key is to do the worksheet that they give to you in class & do the pages in the workbook & you will be all set. You have to do teh work yourself in math to pass. Which group are you in Day, evening, o saturday?

    First WSmith, I apologize for not replying to u last year. But I have the day schedule. I Begin this coming fall semester and i am quite nervous. I already have the ISBN#s for the book i need in hopes of buying the books this summer and getting a head start on the classes. I'll appreciate anymore advice i can get coming from u being a male nurse and havin already completed the COChran curriculum. I have completed all mu co-req except for developmental psych which i am taking a either hunter or bmcc this summer. I wish to apply 4 the fast track program because my girlfriend is expecting and i dont want her to wait 2 long b4 i complete my degree. what did u fond the most difficult during your first and second semester, what do u recommend i do for classes and clinical, and what are easy to commit but dire mustake i should avoid.

    Dora if you are reading this post, the same applies for you. I am currently in my first semester and there is a lot of studying. The bright side is there is only two hard semesters and those are the first 2. once you have passed them everything is down hill from there. good luck ad wish me luck. thank you and sorry for not being on time with my post, i am very busy now that im in the program.

Im studying very hada nad have a grasp of most of the material but have yet to take a test so im still very nervous and knowing how to study is better than just studying.
