I just wanted to say hello since its been a looooong time since I've been on allnurses. I'm in my last year with EC and its not going great but staying positive. So far I haven't failed any exams, thank God! I hope everyone is staying positive while doing this program and excelling. 

I would like to hear from any recent grads on where they are working and if they had any problems finding employment. I'm working in a rehab hospital and plan to stay when I'm done, but that can change later on down the road who knows. 

Good Luck EC students

I'm about to start EC. I haven't contacted them yet, I'm scheduling to take the TEAS first. If you don't mind, since you're about to finish, could you answer a few questions?

If you haven't failed any exams, why is it not going great?

I'm thinking about the exam route. How difficult is it. I prefer learning on my own, but how much information will they test you on? I'm a little hesitant because I'm thinking I have one shot at taking a "cumulative" test of a class that, if taking a traditional course, would be a semester worth of material - that's a big gamble. What is your experience taking the exams? How long did you study before taking the exams?

If you haven't failed any exams, why is it not going great? I've had some personal issues going on in my life and I haven't devoted much time to studying as I would like. with ec you really have to discipline yourself and devote time for learning as you would at a brick and mortar school. I never intended to take almost the full 7 yrs to complete when I started.

I'm thinking about the exam route. How difficult is it. that depends on you and how much you prepared for the exam. yes, some exams are difficult but they are not tricky, its information that comes directly from the content guide and textbooks.  I prefer learning on my own, but how much information will they test you on? each exam has over 100 questions. its important to follow the content guide for each exam if you plan to take the exam only route. What is your experience taking the exams? well so far so good i haven't failed any. for me personally, i like having to do this at my own pace. How long did you study before taking the exams? that varies from exam to exam with me. I would say I study about 2 months less or more for each exam I took. ive read some people studied for a few weeks and some not much at all and still passed. everyone has different learning styles and needs. if it works for you then go for it.
