    It is a 2 year program (6, 13 week terms). I am in level 2 right now, but for level 1 you have class Monday-Thursday and clinical every other Friday once they start. For level 2 we have class Monday-Thursday and then clinical every Friday once they start. I have heard that for levels 3-6 clinicals are on Wednesdays and Thursdays so you would have class the other days I would assume. Level 6 you have your preceptorship so that would actually probably be a bit different

    Hgt219, thx so much!! I'm excited already!!!!! I would imagine that it's a lot of reading huh?
    how often are you quizzed? We are military and plan on moving from Honolulu to Norfolk area soon so I'm just
    planning a head now. Is this program very stressful? I ask bc I have plenty of relatives who were once
    in the nursing program (not this one) and they were always stressed, bad attitude, irritable, lol... You get the point, lol. Is
    this program more hands on seeing that it's a diploma vs degree? I know that every one varies but how long do you spend
    studying? Thanks again!!!!!!��������

    Yes, I plan to start next yr due to the fact that we are still on Honolulu & won't be leaving until later on this year. I also have been looking at Sentara because they offer the BSN. So I might end up applying for both....are you familiar with Sentara? Thanks again!!!!:-)

    Oh ok. I don't know much about Sentara's program, I've heard it is good though! Very competitive! My plan is to go to their first open house for next yr because I would like to do their RN-BSN and I know there are some pre-reqs I will need to take. But GL to you and keep in touch!
