    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

    Last post.... Can you relate to any of this?


    [quote=alana22;5126927]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[/quote

    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!
    Btw Congrats to you on graduating! GOOD LUCK on the NCLEX!!!!!!

    lol that makes me laugh. First of all if you have a job especially in the nursing field already DO NOT QUIT. They want you to work, but you do need your time to study. If you already hold a job like a CNA keep it, because its your foot in the door somewhere! Last year they did get a 100% pass rate. Within my first two semesters there we lost a lot of people who chose on their on to withdraw from the program because it wasn't want they wanted to do. To be honest I read the chapters for the first semester of my first year and that was it. I only read from the textbook if I didn't understand a topic. The lectures are clear and precise and they have test reviews before the test where you are welcome to clear up any topics and they will answer your questions. Most of the instructors will TELL YOU what to HIGHLIGHT in the lecture! Most of the tests are on signs and symptoms of a disease process (when you get into 103) and nursing interventions (what are you going to do first). Some information is pulled from different text books but it is all in your lectures. Whatever they take from that book that you were not required to have they are required to put it in the lecture. lol and about the respiratory and cardiac thing.... They are separate lectures and tests. My best advice to you is to go in with no judgements regarding bad things people will say. My mom has been a nurse for 30+ years and was suprised by the amount of information and how well they were preparing us. If this is your goal, you're flexible in your schedule, and you want to be a nurse.......YOU'LL DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ok thanks for the info I am so excited and eager to get started. I really appreciate your info. I knew the school couldn't be all bad. I guess you get back what you put into it. I am very nervous but this is my passion and what I want to do so I think I'm prepared. I assuming you worked. If you did was it hard to work and go to school? I quit my job and I have just been hired for HHC on the weekends so I'm hoping I can do that for some time.

    You don't know how happy I am to see another former student on here!! I kinda had a feeling the experiences that the other former student had could not have been the same or similar for the rest of the students....thank you so much for sharing your side....We want to hear more!!! Also, good luck on your Nclex exam!!
