    Where do I begin, the program can be overwhelming by all means. Just keep yourself organized. Also, the tests are NOTHING like A&P and Micro, they are more application based and critical thinking. Always ask "why"? Yes you do have to READ, some nights I was reading over 100 pages. Which sucked...... I started reading the boxes within the chapter and the highlighted points, and I did the learning outcomes from the course book ( you should get this during Camp I Can) then I would do the study guides. They both helped out alot. I have managed to keep a B in every class. So its doable. Also, make sure you get all the required books. Most of the recommended books I never even opened. I do suggest that you get the recommended book, "Nursing Care Plans" This was a agreat guide for those awful concept and care maps that you have to do for clinicals. Please feel free to ask me anything. Good Luck!!!!

    I graduated from Gordon in 1995. Aced the NCLEX...it was easy compared to a lot of the exams I took there. It was a great deal financially, too. My sister went to Kennesaw State and is still paying off student loans.

    2007 graduate here. I have nothing but good to say about Gordon! Now, it was one of the toughest things I have done in my life....but well worth it. The professors are awesome. The school has a great reputation and very high pass rate for NCLEX. My best friend is graduating this May from there and already has a job offer! Definitely a great school....but, be prepared to work hard.

    Good Luck.
