    Just wondering if there was anybody on here that was accepted to the nursing program at Hagerstown Community College for spring 2010?

    Has anybody attended HCC's nursing program that might be able to give advice for the medical terminology quiz that is given before the program begins? I was told to purchase a book called "Medical Terminology: A Short Course" by Chabner which I plan to do this evening. My problem is that I was admitted just last week and was told that I have to have the quiz taken by Aug 15th and I am just freaking out that I won't pass. I only have one try and Im nervous that I am going to blow my chances of nursing school with this quiz.
    Is the quiz multiple choice?
    Does it quiz on medical abbreviations or definitions?
    Are there any good websites that might help?

    Thanks Dolcebellaluna! I did ask the receptionist fromt the nursing dept. and she just told me to review that med. terminology book. That was the best answer I could get. I will try posting in MD Nurses forum, maybe I will get lucky and meet somebody who has or will attend my school that might be able to give me a better idea of what to study. I hope I can do this in the time frame that I was given. I was a late admit to the program so I feel like I am rushing around to get all this stuff done last minute.

    I just found out last week that I was accepted into the nursing program at Hagerstown Community College. I am super excited but am quite nervous. I am supposed to take a medical terminology quiz and must pass with a 75 percent in order to stay in the program. I only get one try to pass. I am currently a pharmacy tech so I am familiar with sig codes on rx's but I am in the dark on everything else. I was told to get a book called Medical Terminology: A Short Course but my problem is that I must have this quiz taken by Aug 15th! Has anybody gone to Hagerstown Community College for nursing that could maybe give any advice? Am I freaking out too soon?
