Thanks for info but I already have that, I kind of wanted to hear what someone's experience was as to having attending that college or if someone else is applying. Just wanted to know how the program and teachers are overall.

NCLEX passing rate for the batch prior to us was 88%. Ours is 92.86% passing rate with 86% that have taken boards already. We graduated May 12, 2011. I invite you to visit this site http://fdtc.weebly.com/. FDTC is heavy on skills (and clinicals) and lecture content is focussed towards what is needed on the actual practice. There is no perfect school, there are teachers that does not fit our learning styles. I did not have a good experience with my advisors so I basically went through the program relying on myself. I had failing grades but never dared to ask for help with the fear that I might be further misled. Some of my classmates also had a not so good experience regarding advisors. I barely passed the program but am glad to pass the NCLEX the first time. I never heard any of the batch having difficulty on seeking employment.

Thanks, really appreciate the support. Glad you are doing well in the program, I wish you lots of success in your journey to becoming a nurse. I feel like I am going to put my heart and soul into this nursing program. I want it so bad, only if words could express how I feel. I have a dosage calculations and fundamentals book I am going over. I am trying to get into the test taking/critical thinking mode. Wish me luck Sept I turn in my app!:yeah:

Hey MzRainyDays! This is new to me. Its not twitter or facebook where I can press the reply. lol. Yes, I know SEPT IS HERE!! I went yesterday and filled the application out. I was super HAPPY! I did not attend one of the meetings but another one is in Oct or Nov and I will attend then. As I wait, I'm just spending more time with my son and reading up on some Nurses books. What are you doing to keep yourself busy until we find out? How are you doing? I pray we both get in as well!!;)

I have a dosage clac book, just trying to get a head start on the math. So when you get your letter in the mail please let me know, so I don't have to hijack the mail man, LOL! Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:yeah:
