I agree with JenPerezPSU. Its a very demanding schedule during term 1. I'm not sure how you would be able to work 2pm-10pm, at least not M-F, since you have mandatory testing every Monday afternoon, one day of a 1-4pm class, the longer day of techniques/clinicals, plus picking up your pt. info the day before clinicals.

Wow thanks alot, that info helps! I know I'm going to have to work 30 hours, just to keep my health insurance. 3-5 hours a day though for classes really isn't so bad. In my LPN school, I went 8am to 3pm, 5 days a week....it was tiring. Then again, I know the ADN program is much harder than the LPN program. Ugh and good luck on those care plans, I haaaated those! So for the day where you go from 8am to 4pm, do you usually get out right at 4, or a little earlier/later?

Thx! :D

I'm in a different section (which means a different schedule with different teachers) than the person who responded but with my schedule, it runs right on time. My monday testing is the same as the previous posters (mon 3-5:30) but tues is my longer day 9-4 wed 9-12 thurs 9-1:30 and I'm off on Friday.

If you are an LPN you need to look into the LPN-RN bridge program. It is a shorter program that, from my understanding, skips over the stuff that you should already know being that you are an RN. I think it is more work schedule friendly as well... but I don't know for sure.

What I meant to say is "being that you are an LPN"

Has anyone heard what the basic schedule is going to be for term 2?

Unfortunately they only offer the bridge program once a year, starting in summer, and I didn't apply for summer term. Either way, it will be a good refresher course for me, it's amazing the things you forget from school when you don't use them on a daily basis.

I think AH1 is 8 weeks, and Psych & Leadership are together for the other 8 weeks. AH1 means one day of class for 4 hours and two clinical days, I think they're 7-3? Leadership is online, and psych is also 1 class day and the clinicals for psych sound like there are only 3-4 days of clinicals for the whole 8 weeks. Obviously there will be varying schedules but I think this is fairly accurate.

I'm REALLY looking forward to focusing on one or two classes at a time instead of the four we have now!! Not to say it will be any easier, but just not being in class almost everyday and worrying about 4 separate classes and instructors will be nice.

I was just discussing this with my husband... trying to decide what to do about childcare for next term and the nursing program's trend of last minute decisions makes me crazy. I like to plan well in advance... especially when my kids are concerned.

Hi, I just found out Wednesday that I have been accepted for the Fall 2010 program. We liked your term's idea of meeting at Panera at St. Johns Town Center before orientation and would like to see if one of you would like to come and fill us in on what to expect, your experiences, etc. We'll buy your coffee, pastry, whatever in appreciation for your time and effort.

It's looking like most of us can do it Sunday, August 1st, but we haven't finalized that. I'm also going to PM a few of you in case no one who would be interested checks this thread any time soon.

Thanks, and congratulations on surviving term 1 :yeah: :redpinkhe

Just wanted to let you all know that Butterflymom agreed to come out with us. Anyone else that would like to come share is more than welcome, and we would be very glad to have you. But I just wanted to let you know that we are covered if you couldn't make it.

Thanks!! :redbeathe

Hello All and SOOOOO happy for you!

I am busy studying for Pharm for the next 3 days but wanted to give you some advice-

Buy the Box and then buy the e-box( you must purchase the box in order to purchase the e-box). Yes it is expensive, but the time it will save you is unbelievable. Study guide info - just cut and paste from the e-book. We are only beginning to learn what the ebox has to offer.

You will have 2 tests on the first day - before classes start! Medical terminology and dosage calculations. Not too hard, just study after the lectures (at orientation) and do the assignments and you will do fine.

I look forward to meeting on the 1st!:yeah:
