Hi! i graduated the program about 3 years, are you taking the accelerated day program or the evening program? It was very intense program it was a nursing boot camp for me. I did learn alot but it was very stressful, we started with a class of 27, and in four months we were a class of nine. I'm not trying to scare you, but you have to be very focused on your studies, and you can't work full time in the program. I'm right now at Helene Fuld, hopefully I will have my RN by November.

I am taking the accelerated day program. I am only working on Saturdays.
Did you work as a LPN for awhile then go to Helen Fuld?
Are you glad you you went this route.

I did work for a over year before going to Helene Fuld, I wanted to earn some money and get my bills out of the way before thinking about school. For me Helene Fuld was the only option available for me, I would advise any student thinking about the program, to take your prereqs at community college and then just take nursing courses @HF. Also, working for some facilities they will help pay for your education, which can be a big help.
im not in the school yet but i wanted to get in. when did you apply and is it too late to get in???
i just called to today to get an application. no it's not too late. call asap. the women said they give test until september. the program stats in september, don't know how that's possible anywhoo. www.wsboces.org

i know this thread is extremely old but kimynurse2b if you can tell me all about the program i would appreciate it. Also my entrance exam is in a week, and i'm very nervous about. was it an easy exam and exactly what material was on it. Any sample questions you may have would be helpful too. (Btw i've been studying for this exam for 4 months)
