- Mar 27, '08 by blackberry4evahello,
it's been a while since i replied to this site. you are speaking nothing but the truth when you say that it get's easier. i am in the 4th semester now. how far along are you? i have mrs. chaplin( it has it's ups and downs). back to studying. test in the am!
- Mar 27, '08 by blackberry4evahi! the waiting list is two years for rn, but they have started this evening & weekend program and they come at night. i am on the rn track, but i heard that those who start on the lpn track get in quicker. i am in the 4th semester and not to scare you off, but the nursing program there is really difficult. i think that if someone would have told me to weigh my options and look at other surrounding schools i would, not to discourage you, but if you decide to attend, then be well prepared.
- May 1, '08 by sahm02I am in the evening weekend program and just finished the LPN portion of the program and it is alot harder than I thought it was going to be. Don't let the waiting list discourage you, they are doing another evening/wkd program starting this fall, they are doing the merit program twice a year now, so I would suggest if you were to apply and you want to be an RN just apply to that program, I only waited 9 months before I started clinicals, but there are alot of prereq's that you need and should get done before you start because doing those and nursing courses is a tough workload. Good luck!!

- May 12, '08 by P_RNIt's a circle. MTC is hard therefore it puts out the best nurses (everybody knows this) because MTC is hard. Do what you must, even the LPNs are the best, but go on to the RN asap, because MTC is the best......did I already say that? And *I* went to Carolina.
- May 12, '08 by SCarolinaGrlI am a little scared going in, but I know I can do this. I have, thank God, a wonderful husband who is working for the both of us right now so I can go full time and still be the mother to two kids. I have heard Midlands produces some good nurses and so far have had nothing but good experiences with them myself.
- Aug 19, '08 by alicat1226Hi there! I start my last semister in 1 week, woo hoo. I'm nervous a/b the paper for 215, any suggestion? And how long does it have to be?
- Nov 14, '08 by CCIlovePinkCCI am at MTC currently taking Intro to Pharmacology and Diet and Nutrition Therapy. I start clinicals in 2 months. I'm glad to see there are other MTC & USC nursing students here!!!
- Nov 14, '08 by alicat1226Good luck! Remember to study!! And I mean study, no going out. haha. I graduate Dec 17th so I can tell you that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, everything you hear a/b 3rd semister s TRUE and the 4th and 5th semister are the EAISEST! So, if you get a chanc to take 4th semister over the summer, do it, b/c it is very easy. For 3rd: get Mrs. Shirk (med surg), for 4th: get Nelson (she is GREAT), and 5th, get Poe (she is also awesome!) I really can't tell you a good teacher to get for 1st and 2nd. I had Mrs. Murry for 1st and she was good, strick, but good. I had Mrs. Johnson for 2nd. For 3rd, if they are still making you all do the videos, come to school before school starts are GET THEM DONE, the more you can stay ahead the better.Last edit by alicat1226 on Nov 14, '08
- Nov 28, '08 by CCIlovePinkCCI'm figuring out that staying ahead is the key to getting this done!
