    i am still very nervous and still waiting, the numbers are rolling down (3 seats left)!!! i was wondering does everyone have to take the teas exam before they get an interview because patti scheduled me for the teas for the 23rd of this month but i didnt do an interview and dont know how many applicants they have for those 3 seats i am so nervous! i dont know if i should just take the teas somewhere else sooner to give in my score sooner or just wait until the 23rd but i am very nervous those 3 seats will go
    I don't know about anybody else, but Patti wanted me to take the teas test first before we wanted to see me....The something was the case when I had applied to Abington...I think they decide who they want to call in for an interview based on your teas scores and probably also weigh in transcript grades/GPA.....I think if they interviewed everyone that sent an app in would be a bit much, for any school for that matter....If you can get an earlier date for the teas, I would suggest to do it as early as possible, study hard and do your best to get the best possible grade....

    Good luck!!

    beware!!!! first off i am new to this site and am so excited that i can communicate with fellow students!!!! i was a former student here at roxborough memorial hospital and let me tell u its nothing like what i expected, me and me fellow classemates (7 students) had a miserable time , please i urge others dont make this mistake and waste money and most importantly time!!! when my journey first began when i was school hunting i had 3 choices ccp, roxborough, or abington all of which i got accepted i choose roxborough because of the reviews and most importantly location(close to my home, easier commute) also i had already givin in my deposit for roxborough when i recieved abington and did not want to loose that money as it is not refundable so i figured id give it a shot, theres no support as mentioned in reviews, tests are horrible, and they fail students left and right and tell them to take the class over the following year and i dont know about most of you but i refuse to sit at home and wait especially since i had to quit my job when school first started because they didnt want the students to work. please take it from someone who has experienced it , if u have another choice please reconsider or if you feel you paid the deposit and dont want to loose that money trust me it will be worth the waste, i urged my fellow classmates to register to this website and give their view (3 of who have to wait a year and 4 who are still in the program but is looking for a school to xfer the nursing courses) if anyone needs more details feel free but i know this journey is hard but we need support and if another school can give that id put my money, time and trust elsewhere.

    wow, alana...i'm shocked to hear this...this is the first time i heard the things you mentioned...why r tests so horrible, may i ask? what were the reasons why the students were failing? i don't know, i'm just confused... if they are so bad, why were they the only school in the region to get a 100% pass rate on nclex? also, you mentioned 7 students were experiencing this, however there were about 50 students that took and passed the last nclex with this school. did they experience the same problems? if so, how were they still able to pass? i'm glad you are here to give us any input to the students that r abt to invest the next 2 yrs of their lives and money to this school....thanks for the info....

    they recieved 100% passrate from the students who made it most of which repeated at least one course on the way to the end and most who sat for the nclex got tutored and paid out of pocket ($500) from a wonderful professor from Jefferson University, absolutely nothing taught was on the exams and when u voiced ur opinion the prof response were " not everything on the powerpoint is on the exam u need to read every pg in the txt book word for word" n im thinking WOW thats alot of reading which is darn near impossible to read everything and do clinical papers, in that case whats the point of the power point????? and the most confusing part is y give a study guide is nothing is on the test?i just dont want this to happen to others, i walked in there with the highest hope and lost close to 11,000! book fees, uniform fees, deposit and time ive read all of these post n c so many student choosing roxborough over other schools and im just asking for everyone to choose wisely for this is one of the most important decisions you will ever make because of all your investing

    Question, where the items on the exams presented in the textbooks or was items on exams were not in either textbooks, powerpoints, and including not taught in lecture? Are you saying exams were given to students on infor that they knew absolutely nothing about?

    some info were in the textbooks, and some used in a previous edition we recently found out, and the info that was in the textbook they required is still to much to read unless u have an idea on what to look up, for ex if an exam is on respiratory and lung disease then y are there a few cardio topic??? which is a later topic, if u have previous medical experience u should by the grace of god b fine if not u will constantly b guessing what will b put on the examand with all the info u will need to b studying it will b hard to review other material assuming it will b on it, all that do take this chance i do wish u alll the very best!!! yayy to our future nurses!!:redpinkhe

    Oh ok, I understand. You now i had a few professors like that in college, especially in my science courses, like anatomy & phys., that did the samething. In order to make sure the students were doing the assigned reading, they would pick out test questions based out of the text, not just the powerpoints ( which everyone in the class hated also!!) but we knew if we wanted to pass the class we had to do what the professor required...A while ago i read another post online from a nursing student who was in an accelerated BSN program at a reputable university in Philly who was required to read about 7 chapters per week!! She also mentioned that alot of students in her class were having trouble or dropping out because of that. She stated that most students don't yet understand the amount of work is really expected of them until they actually start the program....honestly, Roxborough is no exception...i think thats why they ask the students not to work so that they have the time to do the required reading assignments..Even Abington, they accept about 160 students, but only 120 or so end up taking the cert. exam...I went to Mountgomery Comm.College(MCCC) to take all my prereqs, and one of the nursing professors there(Mrs. D) told me that students in their nursing program really suffer/struggle during the Med/Surg semester because it was so detailed and so much infor that they were required to remember....I don't know if there are others out there that could also share their experiences with the nursing programs out there, it's always good to share...
    I'm really sorry that you had such an awful experience, Alana, and it's that you had to wait an entire year...But let this stop you! Still go after your dream of becoming a nurse and let the lessons you learned from this experience push you forward towards your goal!

    God bless...
