    I'm still in my first 8 weeks. I'm getting into the swing of things. The tests here are really tricky even when I know all of the info. It seems like they are trying to weed us out with the tricky questions. Anyway, I'm doing great. I just feel bad for the ones that aren't. Are all classes that way?

    Hi everyone. I'm 18 and a freshmen BNS student. I know I have a long way to go but I'm really excited to finally be studying things that interest me. My winter break ends after this week and I honestly can not wait to go back to school! My college is different from many others (or so i've heard), there is not really a pre-nursing thing for the first two years. You don't have to reapply to the nursing program, just keep your gpa up. Clinicals beging in the second semester of sophmore year and I'm begining my first nursing class (nursing 201) this up coming semester. I'm also in a 5yr nurse practitioner program here! I'm so happy to be a nursing major =D

    I just started my 3rd 8 weeks of Nursing classes. I hear most of the nursing programs are the same in that they make the tests harder than necessary. any ideas on what to study for the HESI tests? You have to make the Nursing program your #1 priority to get through it. Study hard!
