    @bluesquares I am happy to actually hear from a graduate from spson. All the negative comments about the school was making me nervous. Do you have any idea what school they have agreements with for our bsn?? Also, I was researching where I would be able to do my externship and everywhere I researched seems to want you to be enrolled in a bsn program. Do you knw of any places where I would be able to go?? Thanks!!

    I believe they have a bridge program with Chamberlain, do your research on it. I am enrolled right now, its relatively easy. You just need a little discipline and computer literacy. The most annoying part for me is APA format....other than that I would say its loads easier than the work you have to put in for your Associates. As far as externships, I wish I could be of more assistance, I made the mistake of not looking myself. But keep your hopes up. Also, don't take for granted your clinical sessions. You never know who you will meet, or what sort of impressions you will leave on the staff. I have heard so many stories about people who impressed floor managers during their clinical rotations and ended up with a job that way.

    I am new to the board. I went to the informational session on 1/25/13, took the 12 minute test..passed it. Can anyone tell me what to expect from the 4 hour HESI test? I purchased the book at SPSON bursar's office... What type of math was it mostly comprised of? adding, subtracting, multiplication?

    Hey guys!!!! I hope someone will see this and answer I was wondering how rough the summer courses are. I was thinking of taking nutrition over the summer. Also, I am confused about 2nd semester because it says Med-Surg/pediatrics 8 credits. How do they break that down? Is it twice a week? Class back to back? How is that class broken down? Do you start out in a Peds clinical or start out in one hospital and then transfer to another when peds starts? Help!!! I just recently got a part time job and I am trying to figure out my hours. Thanks!

    Summer classes tend to be okay.I took Micro last summer and it was okay.Because you really just focus on one class.Nutrition should be easy. Peds is one class.I was in night session so we were there like from 430-1030.It was grueling.I had clinical back to back days about 6-7 hrs per day depending on how the day went. Or you can opt for one day 12 hr shift. Peds usually done only at Lincoln hospital in the Bronx as far as I know and you have to go there unless they change it. You go for like 3-4 sessions.The rest you go where ever you signed up for in relation to med-surg.All the best.

    Hey Nike... You said you were there from 4:30-10:30 for med surg and peds... How many days a week just for those two classes? Do you remember if the 12 hour shifts were also an option for the med surg portion? The good thing about a 12 hour shift is you get a real sense of the nurse's shift.

    Hey.Everything is one class they just alternate everyweek or go with 2-3 week stretch discussing peds then med-surg material. I never took a 12 hour shift but yes they are an option, but i guess it is up to you how it feels.Try to find out which Instructor is teaching the class.It make a bit of a difference.Study for the Peds/HESI from the start,you can really use those 7-10 points.
