ERI review at HFCC

Posted

Has 6 years experience.

Is anyone going to the ERI review session @ HFCC? Just wondering what you thought of it...

I went yesterday but left at lunch and didn't go back today. It was optional for me.

I am a student at WCCCD and it is not optional for us. We have representatives from our school to sign us in and out. It is a lot of information to review, I wish it was more about strategy for taking NCLEX instead of reviewing content. And on top to that, we have another 3 day review next week, that's mandatory.:yawn::yawn::yawn:

I had a feeling it was mandatory for some schools.

I like the book, but if she is just going to read it, I can do that myself. Anyway, I hope the reviews help. good luck with the NCLEX!

Though once the last sign in today there was barley anyone left! Ha.

How can they make this mandatory? I mean, you already graduated, right? It's not like they can call the State of Michigan and not have you take the NCLEX. So are they just "saying" it's mandatory to scare people or what? How are they enforcing this? Guess I want to know for next year...... :)

Doesn't the school have to endorse/approve your application to take the NCLEX-RN?

At WCCCD, we do not get our "release papers" from the schoool until we complete these reviews. We sign in and out each day. They are really for our benefit and after jumping through hoops for 2 years, it's not a big deal.

Supposedly they can not send your transcripts to the state.

At Schoolcraft it is optional. We had to take ERI tests after every class, and then in the last semester we were required to take about 25 tests (most of them over the break....nice break!) Then we had to take the predictor test by the end of the semester, and they would not release your grade until you passed. They gave us the ERI books the last day and gave us the opportunity to sign up for the class, which is included in our tuition. A lot of students signed up for Kaplan instead, which is doing a review right at the school.

I hope it was at least helpful to you all and not a waste of time. The woman was really annoying me.

The lady on the second and third day spoke entirely too fast and disagreed with a lot of the right answers. So yes, that was a tad annoying.

Good grief! I thought it was because she had a lot of information to cover, lol. I bet her lips and jaws are exhausted at the end of the day!

yep :)

She's God. She talks so fast because she knows so much. I hope you wrote down every word.

If she disagreed with the answers, it's because the answers were dumb.

I could listen to her all day.

I got the impression that her student's really liked her but say that "she's God" (I'm sure it's a figure of speech), shows that she is one of your favorites and I was not trying to offend anyone. She may indeed be very intelligent but if you do not agree with answer, it would be nice to provide a rationale. No one really questioned her (a few ppl did) and I get the sense that many of her students hold her in such high regard that they don't question her. I always ask why (even to the most lettered instructors).

Fast talkers in general are a pet peeve of mine. It's not because I can't keep up with but they seem frazzled to me.

She was not horrible and nothing personal against her but she hit on some of my pet peeves that I have about teachers.

She talks fast and thinks fast....very fast. And sometimes she is all over the place. If your not used to her, I can understand how you can be a little put off. But, she knows her stuff - especially what's on the NCLEX. If she tells you something is going to be on boards...believe her. She tells you only what you need to know and eliminates the fluff.
