    Can you do your clinicals anywhere outside of stony brook like in NYC perhaps?

    Owade, you seem to be freaking out. Lol the first thing you need to do is try to calm down and take the process one step at a time. I myself did not have any hospital experience other than working as an office assistant at a hospital. DO NOT take any medical terminology courses as you will plainly be wasting your time and money. Anything you need to know you will be taught in the program. As far as clinicals, there are options to do them outside of Stony Brook, but they are all relatively nearby aside from LIJ which is not offered until the Spring semester (which is the last semester). There may be a way for you to do your Capstone in NYC, but you need to do the legwork yourself from what I understand, and that doesn't take place until the very last month of the program.

    Best of luck!

    For those who are in the program or have been through the program: how difficult is it to do well (3.5+ gpa)? How hard is it to earn an A? what do you consider to be the most challenging classes, why and how do you suggest we prepare ourselves for them ahead of time (trying to take advantage of my free time now!)? what do suggest we review?

    Thank you all so much for your kind words of wisdom!

    Greeneggs, as far as the GPA goes I think it has more to do with your load outside of the program than about the program itself. Some people just cannot stop working, some people have other things to juggle outside of the program and can't commit 100% of their "free time" to studying and it may reflect on their grades a little.

    When it comes to the courses themselves I think it's safe to say they get progressively harder as you get deeper into the program. Everyone is afraid of pharmacology (which I should be studying for right now for my exam next week Friday lol), and rumor has it Med Surg is no picnic and it's actually worth 9 credits so it really REALLY bares a heavy load on your GPA.

    As far as preparing before the program, i don't think there's much you can do honestly. Perhaps buy the med math book and work out some of those problems. Med Math is a 1 credit course given during the summer and it's fairly simple, but you need an 85 to pass.

    Most importantly at this point for you guys is I think saving up as much money as possible. work overtime, do side jobs, do whatever you can now so you don't have to concern yourselves about cash during the next 12 months, as you will have so many other things stressing you out this is the last thing that should be causing you to not focus on the task at hand.

    I agree with emer save as much as you can before the prog starts which I'm doing now. Because by then, like most I won't be able to hold down a job.

    Emer1234 gave good advice in the previous post (probably because he likely heeded my advice a year ago when I was in the program, lol ... and I see he is likewise procrastinating pharmacology as I used to ) ...

    re: clinicals in NYC ... like Emer said, your only possible options for that would be capstone, but I must add that Community Health Nursing is another course with a clinical that you can arrange in NYC (I know because I did mine @ a community health center in Manhattan). Again though, the legwork will be yours to actually arrange that mostly, because Stony Brook is on Long Island and most of their clinical ties tend to be there and it will be easier to arrange those on their end. However, it is possible to do capstone and community health clinical outside of Long Island because these are the last 2 requirements for your degree and they both take place after classes have completed and during a time you no longer have to be on campus regularly for lectures and other clinicals.

    NOTE however, that doing community health clinical in NYC is only possible with the accelerated program though. The 2-year BSN does their community health clinical during the spring semester, so being that it's done concurrently with lectures, it's not possible to do it in NYC.

    owade, post ONE MORE MESSAGE and you will be able to. As I understand it, you will have private mailbox access once you have posted 15 messages on the board, you now have 14 it seems.
