    Good luck to you, thats a great hospital based program. I am a St. Francis grad myself, and I am very glad I started my education at a hospital based school, you get a edge on clinicals. Have worked with many nurses from Shadyside, they were all awesome! Keep in touch.....GO Pirates

    Thanks Jenn, I'm a little nervous about the entrance exam. My grades are good and all, but I hear it's pretty tough!

    :roll Hi,

    You will be fine. I took it after being out of school for 12 years and did fine. It was a lot of word problems, reading comprehension and basic sciences. Things like what does a carbohydrate do? Hopefully they have not changed it since I took it.

    Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I have my last 2 finals for this semester tonight and then I am off until May 2nd. I am in the evening weekend program.

    I took the PSB today. I didn't think the math, verbal, or reading was that bad, but the science :uhoh21:!! Thank goodness I've had A&P and nutrition otherwise I wouldn't have known a lot of those. Still, what was with the electricity questions?
