I think it was called the Nurse Entrance Exam, it was very basic, not so much nursing related but more like a standard college entrance exam. I think you can get a study guide for it. As far as the program goes... whew, its alot in one year and requires alot of studying!! I didn't have any prior medical experience, like cna or anything , so it was all very brand new to me, but I passed with flying colors, as well as passed the NCLEX. They do have strict grade requirements as well as attendance requirements. I cant remember the exact details, but I think you had to maintain a B average, and there were a number of days you could miss with out being removed from the program. I really enjoyed, but like anyone else, I felt very nervous after graduating. Its hard to remember everything that you crammed in for 1 year, but knowledge comes with practice, I believe anyway
The program is fast paced, and requires alot of studying, but the material was taught well and I felt it was easy to pass as long as you payed attention and studied. The instructors were so helpful and were definatley there for you if you needed help.
