    Yes you will definitely understand the math better after you take the 4 week math class. However, it is very fast paced so if you don't understand a concept ask for help immediately. I know a lot of people who fail out because of math. Everytime you start a new clinical which is every 8 weeks, you have to take a math test and score no less than a 90%. If you get below that the first time, you get a second opportunity and if you fail the second time then you have to retrack. So definitely know your math because it doesn't end until the program is over!!!

    oh I wish you all the best of luck!

    I remember being a student there & during clinicals we always ran into RN's who were once students from BC as well.

    We are definitely more relaxed after school-

    About the books-------
    People used the old versions in my class and they were fine.

    I am a little mad-- in one of my classes, the teacher is using a older edition of the book, and he wrote a question on the test that was word for word on the old book--- and it wasn't on the newer edition.
