Sep 18, '13Tulsa13, from what my instructors are telling me, every class is full and there are wait lists but from what I hear most people aren't waiting very long.... And if you do evenings it's even shorter...you need to apply, take hesi, do a program visit, and attend a orientation session...once you get in, each block lasts approximately 10-12 weeks...very accelerated.. Block 1 is a&p, med term and Cna ..block 2 is concepts, fundamentals, pharmacology, block 3 is OB, newborn, medsurg, block 4 is peds, medsurg 2, and block 5 is mental health, psych and your preceptorship....
Right now I am in block 3. We spend 4 days a week in clinicals (hospital floor nursing, ER, and assisted living) we have exam days on Wednesdays. Exams were for; integumentary, respiratory, cardiac, hematology, and musculoskeletal.... Yes, you have already covered those systems in anatomy but this is when it goes in depth with nursing interventions for each disease process and NCLEX type testing questions. You must maintain an 80 or above in each class to move on and clinicals are pass/fail... I have a classmate that has passed all exams for this block, but didn't pass clinical so they will not proceed on with us and will have to repeat the clinical portion of block 3 again.... Good luck! I believe the application deadline is fast approaching!
Sep 23, '13Okie36... Thanks so much for the info. I actually have already applied, took hesi& did the program visit. So my application is completed. I think I'm more so anxious to know if I will walk right in or be on waiting list...I did apply for both day&evening. Ughhh I just really want to start this spring!! But again thank you sooooo much for updating me! Good luck to you
