    Boring yes I tried reading the first chapter last night and I kept falling a sleep in the process.
    i downloaded the book on my laptop which makes it easier to highlight and read in bed. but reading in bed can be detrimental. right now i am trying to read but instead I keep checking my email and sometimes even shopping online. whoa. YAWN!!! I wish someone could read it to me. I read the first chapter and believe it or not it is more exciting than some others. I so hope it gets more interesting. I wish there was a protagonist or a fight scene. YAWN. YAWN I SAY!!!

    How long did you have to wait from the time you applied to get into the program?

    I just finished NPI morning session. If anyone wants any information or has any questions, let me know!
    Hi, purplestang...im gonna start nursing next semester at DM campus (January 2010) (morning session). I want to know who is the best instructor at that campus. This semester two of my friends had to drop the programm because of the instructor. Who do you recommend me to take?
    Thank you.

    Hi! I'm not Purplestang, but I am in my first semester on the dale mabry campus...as far as which instructor, if you are set on wanting the morning session, you don't have a choice. There is one teacher for the morning and one for the afternoon...I have a few opinions but I'd rather not post them on here. If you want to message me I will give them!

    Does HCC accept by the order that the applications come in? Or do they review them all at the end of the deadline? I'm debating whether to turn my application in now for the Fall of next year or waiting for the end of the semester so my grades from this semester will be included.

    Also, how long did everyone wait to get into the nursing program after applying?

    Hi, Nursing student 09, i think they review all the applications and select the students by the higher GPAs. U will need to finish all your pre-req before applying to the program, otherwise your application will not be considered eligible.

    Hi tata-star,
    I took the morning semester for NP1 - our instructor was tough but she was really good. A lot of people failed though (like 12 out of 30) - I don't think as many failed in the afternoon session? You really have to be dedicated and want to learn, and literally devote all your free time to this to do well!

    oh my gosh! thats so sad to hear that. Im in the first week and i am trying to read everything assigned. There's 5 chapters from perry n potter. watching the assigned videos on the mosby dvd's. starting on the clinical calculations (only on ch2) but determined to get thru chapter 8 w/i 2 weeks. all my free time is already on the assigned reading. Any advise is appreciated. Aside from a lot of reading.. what else should i do??? thanks

    Hello
    I have a question for you. I'm interested in ADN in HCC but I wonder how long did it take you to finish the prereqs? The problem is that my husband is in the military and we'll be here for 3 years. I'm not sure if that would be enough to finish the prereqs and the associate degree. I really don't know what to do.

    hi irene27,
    well i think 3 years wont be enough time to do the prereqs and the associate degree. The associate degree only takes 2 years, but between the prereqs and the time you have to wait (6 months) to get accepted into the program would take at least 1 1/2 year.
