Good to know. I thought the TEAS was required for the ASN program.

The wonderlic is an entrance exam but you do have to do the TEAS as well

Yes I have questions. How was the course load during your first semester and if you all used ATI for exams and do you think the school prepared well for the NCLEX And if you had trouble finding a job after graduation ? Sorry I know I have a lot of questions but I'm in between BSN or ASN

Course load first semester was fundamentals and pharm. class 3 days a week and one day clinical in the nursing home. I still worked 2 days a week as a tech. We did use ATI and I felt very well prepared above and beyond for my NCLEX. No trouble finding a job. I graduated April last year and had a job offer since the Feb before graduation.

Were some of the text books found online? What materials did you need to have when you started the program?

I didn't buy their book package at all. I bought my books through amazon and chegg. I googled the isbn and bought it or rented it from the cheapest site. You can also get an edition older, per my professors they did not mind stating that most times it was a typo, or the page number may be off by a few for readings. I bought two scrub tops and two bottoms and a a navy jacket (no school patch) for if I got cold during class or clinicals.

I know we are supposed to purchase stethoscopes, is there any thing else we should buy and what type of shoes are required? were the clinical sites far from school, if so how far? what time was clinicals?

Mostly white leather shoes. You can pick your clinical site unless too many people want the same one then professors will intervene. I lived in the milk district my farthest clinical was in Ocoee first semester at health Central Park. From there I did FH winter park for basic adult on a SPCU and FH women for maternity. Advanced adult was Neuro PCU/ICU FH south and less FH children and a shift at children's urgent care. Practicum on cardiacs PCU at FH south. That's what I chose for clinical. Some people went to tuskawilla skilled nursing during fundamentals. Some people went to FH altamonte as oppose to south.
