    Congratulations unique2 on being accepting into the nursing program. You can plan on being involved with school about 4 days per week. The first semester was 2 days of class, one day lab and one day clinical for one class, Fundamentals. The second semester we had three classes( 2 days per week) and two clinicals. This past semester, we had two classes(one day) and two clinicals. Our last semester is scheduled for 3 classes, a lab and clinicals and we are supposed to be there 4 days next semester. So in other words...u will be traveling A LOT!!! Between classes and clinicals (depending on the site u are assigned to). Feel free to ask anything else.

    Thank you for the information. Yes that sounds like a lot of traveling. I could not find any evening classes here in NJ. Oh Are books and uniforms included in the tuition?

    Can you give me an estimate of the tuition cost for the evening program? How intense is the course work because I work from 8-3. Is there a high drop out rate for the evening classes?
    One last question, do students need to buy their own nursing kit as well.
  9. by   lele606
    Yes u buy UR own nursing kit but it comes with uniform package..... I truly understand because I work full time also and there are not many part time schools around. Congrats to your cousin and my good friend also graduated Sat... She said most of the instructors were fine and only a couple ppl either left or failed and restarted with next class.... So that's pretty good news and tuition is about $23,000....
