  1. GOAL2BRN

    Harper College

    Thank you so much for the suggestions! I didn't know that I could take pharmacology or physical assessment beforehand. Although I know they mentioned offering both this summer to help us get them out of the way but we are only allowed to take one or the other. If you don't mind me asking, which did you find more difficult? Also, did you have difficulty finding a job after graduation? I know that Harper has a good reputation in the area but I wasn't sure how willing some places would be to take on an ADN rather than a BSN.

    Harper College

    Hi Penelope. I know this is an old thread but I will be starting Harper's nursing program in January and I was wondering if you could tell me what you found to be most challenging/enjoyable? Any professors you recommend or advise to stay away from? Is third semester as bad as it looks? Any clinical sites to avoid? Any info you can provide would be great! Thanks!

    Job offer after clinical?

    How lucky are they?!

    Job offer after clinical?

    I have always been employed since I graduated college 11 years ago except for a 3 month maternity leave so hopefully that will say something!

    Job offer after clinical?

    Very good point. I am in the NW suburbs of Chicago. Lots of hospitals, lots of schools so a lot of nurses out there!

    Job offer after clinical?

    Just curious how many people were hired on at a hospital where they had their clinical? I am getting ready to start nursing school for my associates in January and they keep stressing to make a good impression at clinicals which I get but I am also wondering just how many ADN's actually get offerels over new BSN grads.
  9. Hello! I have been accepted in to 2 nursing programs for my associates. One program offers days only and one offers days and nights. I have a son who will be 20 months old when I start. I am currently a stay at home mom so I figured the night program would be the way to go. I could still be with my son most of the day and then my husband could be with him while I was at school. The cost of daycare is ridiculous! However, I have been thinking a lot about it and I am wondering when I would have time to study if I did nights. I am also worried my husband would get burned out. A lot of times he also has to continue working when he gets home and may not always be able to do so with a feisty toddler running around. The night program is also farther from home so that is something to take in to consideration. I am in the Midwest so winter will be coming! Have any of you with kids found a day or night program easier? When did you do your studying? Clearly going back to school disrupts the life balance but did you find something that worked for you? Any info you could give would be truly appreciated! Thank you.:)

    Well my first attempt did not go so well..... I only got an 80 so I figured I wouldn't get in but thought I would try anyhow. I was not surprised when I got the rejection email. My second attempt was a lot better. I got a 97 this time around so hopefully I will get in. It takes 3-4 weeks to get an answer.

    I just applied for the second time. You are notified via your student email. Most people I know that have gotten in to the program had around a 92 on their NLN. But it all depends on the pool they have for each semester.

    Harper vs CLC : Which Program?

    Hello! At the time of this post I have been accepted into Harper's Nursing program for the Spring 2018 start. I have also applied to the College of Lake County and their decision will be made within the next 3-4 weeks. I was wondering if there are any recent grads or current students of either of these nursing programs. How are you doing in the program? Are you satisfied? Disappointed? I just want to make the right decision. I was leaning toward the College of Lake County because they have a night program. I am married and a stay at home mom to a 16 month old son. We will have to place him in daycare either way now but with night school it will be fewer hours which means less $$$. However, it seems that Harper has a better reputation and the NCLEX pass rates are a bit higher as is job placement stats after graduation. Anyone have any advice or guidance here?! Thank you!
