  1. Hello,
    Im Arianna, Im not sure if anyone has posted about Wilson Tech before and i apologize if soemone has and i couldnt find it.

    Has anyone attented the accelerated day program?
    I just got accepted into the program starting in March 2009,
    well i passed the test and now am onto the interview.
    Did anyone get to the this point?How was the interview?Was it stressful or pleasant? If you get the interview, are you basically into the program?Im so nervous im going to mess up the interview. I did a few practice interviews with my mom and boyfriend. I know the program is going to be very hectic and stressful, but im more nervous about getting in. My interview is for Nov. 18th.
    When in the program,is taking college coruses kind of a plus,?I attended SCCC for honors english comp and math classes while i was waiting to hear about the nursing program.

    I hope i get in so badly,i have wanted this for so long.

    Does anyone have any advice?

    Please,id really appreciate it.
    Thank you,

    Hey there!
    Congratulations. If the interview is anything like Eastern Suffolk Boces, it is basically Why do you want to become a nurse? What are the qualities in a good nurse? What would you do if you saw a classmate cheating?
    good luck :0)

    I have one question already actually..
    were you nervous about doing clinical?im terrified
  7. by   WndrWmn
    OMG yes, I did my first fundamentals clinical in December. I promise it is not as hard as it seems, intimidating YES...... the first time, we actually had partners. So if we had five CNA's in our clinical group and five students who have never even spoken to a patient LOL, we were paired up with the CNA's. My level II clinics start in a couple weeks......I am scared to death so I am no help there LOL! But I will probably tell you it wasnt so bad also LOL!.
    If you want to get ahead of the game for level I, start reading some A&P books *that class is really accelerated and it will save you from nights of stress and tears* Its basically A&P I, II in 40 hours since A&P is only once a week for a couple months LOL! Hmmmmmm what else, read about fluid and electrolytes and acid base balance too.

    Thank you soooo much. Im definitly going to get a start on that. I should know im hoping by the end of this week if im in or not. The women who interviewed me said i would know by the beginning of January so im assuming ill know within the first two weeks. Thank you so much. Definitly let me know how your second round goes..youll do great!

    I am in the accelerated program at Western soffulk BOCES.
    Only 93 real days left or 57 classroom/Clinical days.

    It took about 2 weeks after the interview to find out I made it.

    I think you will be fine.

    Clinical will start in mid June- It was scary the first time out. They pair you with another student the first week of clinicals

    I hang out in the Students/LPN board here.

    Ask as many questions as you wish
