Hi, guys!

I just finished my third semester of the evening/weekend program at the Essex campus (May 2020 is the light at the end of the tunnel) and I'm so excited for the journey you're all going to start soon! I can only speak for myself- but orientation seems as though it is built to terrify you. Do not get discouraged and worried after orientation, and don't get overwhelmed by the amount of books on the list you see in front of you at said orientation- nursing school is doable!

If you have a decent grasp of A&P- the content itself is a breeze. Exams make you think differently and actually apply knowledge rather than regurgitate it- but again- THIS IS DOABLE! Full disclosure- I do not complete the readings. I take notes in lecture, and I've had to open my textbooks two, maybe three, times only to clarify something I really wasn't getting. Practice questions are the key to exams in my opinion, and Amazon has a bunch of books on the cheap end for that purpose (the Davis Success Series has been great for me).

I know the Essex day program has Mrs. Thompson for the majority of the Funds lectures and that woman is amazing and she has a wealth of knowledge to share. Evening/weekend attendees- you'll have Ms. M- she can be intimidating, but just keep your head down and get your crap done and she's fine.

I don't know anything about the Catonsville campus (sorry).

I'll double check my home computer to make sure it's still saved and pass it along if I still have it.
