    Thanks, Jayden!
    Just a quick question: When you went to the uniform store, did you pick up your clothing/accessories that same day? Or do you need to try it on for size, order, then go back again to pick it up?

    Thanks

    Yes you need to try it on they order and you come back to pick up. You can pick up your equipment right away the sthethoscope and shoes if you chose to get them there.

    Thanks! I am so excited. I know that you mentioned that everyone is approachable but did you experience anything at all like the previous poster did? Have you taken the NCLEX yet? Do you think you are/were prepared to take it?

    Thanks! I am happy to talk to someone who has experienced this before!

    What was it that the previous poster experienced? I take the NCLEX July 8th, and I definitely feel prepared. Your second year you will be taking ATI tests which are just standardized tests relating to nursing material. The important one is the ATI comprehensive test at the very end. I passed the comprehensive test but a lot of my peers had problems with the test, I suggest studying from the ATI comprehensive book they will give you for that particular test. If you do not pass the comprehensive ATI you must take a virtual ATI course which is all online and takes about 2 weeks to complete. They also offer Kaplan courses, this year they were offered at Roxborough which starts right after graduation. You have a lonnnnnnnng way to go but just giving you a heads up!

    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.
