    Are any of you working while in the program? If so, are you working full-time or part-time?

    I'm a second semester junior in the program and I don't work, but I know plenty of people who do. I would say the less hours you can work, the better, because RIC's nursing program is pretty intense. Between clinicals, lectures and clinical preps you're already up to about 28 hours/week minimum.... plus papers/projects/studying/reading, etc.

    Its a personal choice of whether you work or don't work while your in the program. I know many people who work and just as many who don't work. Its up to you really because its what you can handle and what you can't handle. Personally, I have two jobs (I work in an ER and in a grocery store) because I have to. I work about 20 - 24 hours a week along with a full time course load so I don't have a lot of free time. You need to decide for yourself whether you can handle working and school or if you just want to do school. I will say that if you do work you should cap it off at 20 - 24 hours per week if your going to school full time because otherwise it will be just too much to handle.

    I just got into the second bachelor's program. Yay! Could I ask, do all of the second degree students take NURS 220, NURS222, NURS223, and NURS 224 all in the first semester? I met with somebody from the department, and she lead me to believe that you have to be selected to take all four of these courses as a second degree student in the Fall semester. Thanks so much!

    Congrats! I believe you have to petition to take all 4 classes together, they don't automatically enroll you in all 4.
    I would strongly recommend that you only take all 4 together if you either work very little, or don't have a job. The second semester classes (223 and 224) were a lot of work, and I can't imagine taking them with two other classes. Let me know if you have specific questions.

    Many people dislike Kinsey. I personally thought he was funny and helpful when you asked for assistance. Make no mistake though - it is anatomy, and you have to do a lot of work on your own (memorizing body parts, dissecting animals, and studying for exams and practicums). Be ready to put some hard work into your pre-req classes - it's a good practice for the school of nursing, because IT DOES GET HARDER once you're in the RIC nursing program. Hope I could help. Good luck to you

    By the way... I am horrible at Chemistry, but I worked REALLLLLLLLY hard, and in the end I did get an A. So don't give up, but put effort and time into your education.
