    I started training to be a nurse at the end of September 2001, not a very long time ago, and the intake was just short of two hundred people. A quater have gone all ready! I don't know 25 of the people who ahev left as they were from the other half of the year (they spilt us into two teching groups, to make it easier) But the 26 who left from my side of the course hit me quite hard. Especially as we have had no exams yet, it is just the stress of the course and the ward placements that have made people leave

    Oh well only 2 and 3/4 years left to go!

    Lessee.... started out w/ 60 1st semester - that dropped down to about 18 by the 2nd semester - now in the 4th semester and I THINK we have about 15 of the originals.... My philosophy on the whole thing: woulda, shoulda, coulda -- woulda studied more (If I'd known) shoulda studies more (to make it) coulda studied more (but I guess I was not managing my time OR I was really lazy) I think these are the main excuses for not making it ---- fortunately for myself, I Have NOT had to "excuse myself"... now if I could only do this w/ my weight....

    First off, I attend Mansfield University in PA it is a BSN program run by the college and affiliated with a local hospital. There were 25 students in our sophmore year and we are down to 13 I am sure that we will all graduate together.

    I can relate to your frustration taking the tests!! I have learned a few helpful hints I will share with you.

    1. Cover the test with your bubble sheet and don't look at more than the question you are working on.

    2. Read the question slowly two times, circle words that stick out like BEST, PRIORITY, FIRST, LEAST. make sure you understand the question. Yes there are usually two correct answers but if you read the question and think about it, the answer will come to you. Visualize if you need to put yourself in that question and respond by what you would do if you where there.

    3. Cover the answers and try to answer the question before you look at the choices.

    4. Don't second guess yourself!

    5. Go with your first instinct/ it usually is the right answer

    I attend the Medical College of Georgia School of Nursing in Augusta, Ga. we started in 7/2000 with about close to 100 folks and now in Spring 2002 we will have about 75-80 some because of grades, others they couldn't handle and others becuase it was not what they thought it was going to be.
