You should be able to be exempt. I have my Associates degree. Either way I hope that we all get in. I’m ready to get started 😫

I am ready to get started as well but nervous and excited at the same time! I already made a list of things I will need for nursing school.

Me too! 👏🏽 I really haven’t been able to find that much info on the program. I’ve seen a few good reviews here and there, but nothing about the program is clear so far..

I mostly researched their NCLEX passing rates since that is the most important thing.But if you email the school and request the nursing handbook, they will send you the pdf which has a lot more information about the program in it.

I know 2 people who have done the career in a year programs at Lakes tech and lindsey hopkins and they did not have the most positive things to say about it, at least when it came to nursing skills and the way they were being taught.

Same here. I wonder what the uniform colors are. I can’t even remember where I saw this at but, I was reading some reviews about Mercy and the person was like there’s this one teacher (if I’m not mistaken he/she said that he was Canadian) and he is strict. They said that he failed all of the students with mediocre grades and he expects the students to retain the lesson very quickly.

That sounds like a great idea. I’m gonna email them on Monday.

If I’m not mistaken we would have to wear navy blue with black shoes

Nursing school isn’t supposed to be easy which I get, but it does take sometime to retain and understand the information. School is hard enough as is and we don’t need teachers who don’t care making it harder.

Hi everyone, 

It’s been a while. How’s everyone doing? August will soon be here and I’m super excited 😆 anyone got their uniforms yet? I’m debating on whether to get mine now or wait closer to the start date. Only thing is…. Is that I don’t want to risk the stores not having what I’ll need in time if I wait too late.
