    It's nice to hear from other students that have been excepted for the Spring 2014 semester. I'm extremely anxious to begin. I also completed all my pre-requisites for the program. I was curious how the schedule would be being that I only have to complete NURS 1 through 4 and possibly nutrition.

    If your for "EVENINGS"...Classes are on Tuesday and Wednesdays. It can be 2 weekdays; or 3 weekdays (not counting (Sat) for clinical's).
    One day is 4 hours of lecture (Tues), the other is 2hr lab & 2 hr lecture (Wed). Or, instead of taking BOTH on (Wed) you can opt to take your 2hr lab on (Thurs) instead, if you choose to split them. Clinical's are on Saturdays (7am-4pm)

    I'm going for Tues/Wed only...I'll already be there, why not! And congrats to you...

    Hi Everyone,
    I am a current 2nd term student at Hopfer (now Montefiore School of Nursing). Let me know if you have any questions. I understand the anxiety that comes with this process.

    When you started, what supplies did you need besides a stethoscope and your textbooks? I was considering buying some sheers and a penlight but I'm not sure if that's necessary. I mean I can always use it in the future.

    You definitely need a penlight. I bought a package on Amazon that had a stethoscope, penlight, scissors, ruler, and 4 color pen. I would also buy a small note pad to use in clinical (for vitals, notes). You will have paperwork to complete during clinical, but the pad works well if you don't want to carry the paperwork around.

    Hi everyone...
    After much hard work and countless pre-requisites, I will also be attending Hopfer for the Spring 2014 evening program!!!!
    I am anxious, nervous, excited.... but above of all I am ready for what will probably be the most challenging two years of my life so far.
    In preparation, I would greatly appreciate any tips or suggestions on study habits and note taking skills from current or past students.
    Looking forward to meeting all of you in January!

    The 1st term takes a little bit of time getting used to. You're learning concepts you probably never touched on before, and you're going to be touching people in ways you never touched people before (mentally and physically). From day 1, you are being prepped to take the NCLEX. All test questions are NCLEX style. Some people have difficulty at first getting used to questions that require critical thinking, but you will get used to it... you have to!

    Juggling F/T work, school, and family is very challenging. Your friends and family need to understand nursing school is going to become your life for 2 years. The only advice I can provide is to make sure you keep your priorities straight. If nursing school can't be your priority, this might not be the right time for you.

    I hope this doesn't instill any fear. The process has been great so far..it just requires dedication. The time really does fly, and by this time next year, you'll be typing the same things I am!

    Perhaps a new post should be opened with the new name of the school, Montefiore SON? The new link is... Hopfer School of Nursing

    Nothing special..stethoscope, penlight, pens, pad. Your clinical time is split between caring for the 1 patient you are assigned to and completing the necessary clinical forms, which includes their medical hx, labs, diagnostic tests, and medications. In Nursing 1, you provide AM cares (bathing, linen changes, etc.), and once you pass your dosage/med exam, you can begin to give oral meds, and IM/SQ injections. That's about half way through nursing 1.
