I can't seem to find the link to the FB group, does anyone mind posting the link??
Also, how is biochem?? I am scared to death to take it!!
Hey everyone!! I'm so glad I happened to come across this thread....I too started RN to BSN Oct 1. In addition to taking the 8 nursing courses, I am having to suffer thru Nutrition, Behavioral, and BioChem. I have just started on Nutrition....and have seen that some of you are currently taking it as well!! I am feeling very overwhelmed since there is no pre assessment and I'm not sure where I stand with the course. I have been working thru the daunting little "assignments" on the COS, but think they may be a waste of time and that I should maybe just concentrate on the chapters and chapter reviews. ANy advice?? Anyone taken the objective exam and have any suggestions on how to focus your time??. Glad I'm not alone out there!! ANd the FB group is a great idea?? Has it been started?? I wouldn't mind getting it up and running if it has not...
I just graduated from PC in December from the traditional program. You really can't beat the schedule there... We had lecture Wed 8am-1pm and Clinical Mon OR Tues (class is split up) for 12 hrs. So 1 day of lecture and 1 day of clinical. I highly recommend PC. Most of the instructors are good and helpful... and everyone in our class who has taken the NCLEX so far has passed on the 1st try. I just passed mine last week.
I am a block IV student at Phoenix College currently. Back when I was on the waiting list, I had Mesa, Scottsdale, and Gateway as my top three picks (back then you could only choose three). I didn't get in during the first 2 weeks of placement. I saw that Phoenix college had 6 openings, so I switched and put Phoenix College as my No. 1 and I got in the next week. I didn't pick it originally because it is a pretty far drive, however I have been VERY pleased with the program. Great instructors, and very good clinical opportunity. I could have transferred to a closer school after block I, but chose to stay, and I've been very happy there. But, I would definately change your choices around to where ever there are available spots. Beggers can't be choosers...you can always transfer for Block II if you are unhappy.
I interviewed last week and was offered a position a few days later. They didn't ask very many clinical questions...more personal. New Grads start there at 24/hour and health incurance is through cigna. Scrubs are up to employee discretion, shoes as well however not allowed to wear crocs with holes in the top. Hope this helps!
