    Maybe Clinicals instructor doesn't like men

    That really sucks man, I'm sorry you have to deal with that because it's pretty unprofessional on her end and I'm sure it feels like your excluded from a lot of opportunities to learn in the clinical setting. Have you tried talking to your pediatric course coordinator or one of your program directors? But I agree with SamC1988, definitely don't record anything in the clinical setting. It's a trap, lol

    MJC 2019 application period

    Hey there, Chastity! You’re welcome I recommend studying for 30-60 minutes every day the month before your TEAS. Then 3-4 days before your exam date, study hardcore. You can do it!!! Believe in yourself. And yes, working part-time is doable! There’s a number of folks in our class who do (I’m not one of them, haha). But 3rd and 4th semesters, not so much haha. And Halfcourt95 I think that’s really ambitious that you want to take physics and O-chem during nursing school, but I think you’re kind of setting yourself up there and you might be seriously underestimating how seriously rigorous this program is. Because it’s not “just studying," although you’ll be doing an immense amount of that, lol. And the content you do study and test on isn’t anything like what you’re used to from your prerequisites (it’s harder). And if you’re not studying, you’re in skills lab. If you’re not in skills lab, you’re in clinical. If you’re not in clinical, you’re in sim lab. You’re always behind! Haha. You will work harder for an A than you ever have before. One thing I think might be good to know is that if you do get in to the nursing program, you’re going to be with 39 other classmates who are as smart as you, have worked as hard as you, and at LEAST one (but probably more) person/s will be even smarter than you and worked even harder than you (I 100% guarantee this, I had to learn this myself lol) ;D ….and not a single person will feel like nursing school isn’t extremely hard work. It’s a very humbling experience, for many reasons. But the beautiful thing is that once you’re in, you don’t have to be competitive anymore. In fact, you will do much better if you’re less competitive and work as a team-player. Your friends in nursing school quickly become your family…. and you will need them Wishing everyone the best…. T-3 days until the application opens!!! Andy, SN MJC 1st Semester

    I think it's really awesome that NKL scored a 90% on their TEAS without studying at all!! This person's obviously got some serious brains However I think you would be hard-pressed to find another person in MJC's nursing program who wouldn't tell you to take some time and study for the TEAS, not with your best interest in mind anyway. Y'all got this!! -Andrew

    Fundamentals of Nursing Review Questioms

    Hey there! I'm also getting close to the end of first semester. I totally recommend Saunders NCLEX-prep; they have a whole section on fundamentals, and the book comes with an access code to like 6,000+ practice questions (my favorite way to study). Hang in there, friend

    Hey, Irene! My name's Andrew and I'm currently one of the first semester ADN students at MJC. I scored a 95.3% on my TEAS. It's totally possible, just be willing to reeaaally work hard for it (which in all honesty is going to be good practice for when you get in the program because it's going to feel like your taking 3 TEAS's every weak, but you have to get a 76.5% to pass your class). The best advice I can give you is to purchase the paperback study guide from ATI with the two online tests. Study at least one module from the study guide every single day but do not limit yourself to the content that's on the study guide.... and they tell you that in the introduction of the book. Really hone in on the science section, especially anatomy, physiology, and microbiology. And spend a good amount of time on math because you'll be doing more complex medication/IV calculations when you get in the program. I wish you and all who are applying the very best of luck!!!! Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. See you guys in clinical Andrew
