    1. In the first module we had 3 or 4 writing assignments/papers. In the second module we only had one. You will use APA for all papers. If you aren't familiar with that style take some time to look it over. The student success center will edit your papers for free, so I always try to get mine finished a couple days ahead of time so I can send it to them. 2. There isn't really a time that you just shadow a nurse. You will have your first clinical experience in module 2 at a long term care facility. Each facility is a little different but you will care for residents and use the skills learned in Concepts 1 & 2. You will interact with nurses but will mostly be assessing and caring for the residents. 3. In my opinion the workload is heavy and very fast, but I do not have any healthcare experience. Students who already work in a hospital may not find it quite as challenging. Honestly, I spend the majority of my spare time studying. Most students do not work during the program, but there are some who do. You will have an average of 2-3 exams each week over several chapters of material along with quizzes and assignments. Our cohort has a OneDrive group where we upload exam objectives and work on them together which has been extremely helpful. Here are some things you can do while you wait to start in March. I wish I would have done these things!! Learn medical terminology. I had no idea we were expected to know it before class. Review A&P, micro and biology Watch Cathy Parkes videos on Youtube for pharmacology and buy her flash cards. Registered Nurse RN is great, too! If you don't know it already, learn dimensional analysis. You will need this for dosage calc. Do not buy your textbooks through MNU!! You can rent real books from Chegg, or rent online books through vital source. For PrepU (online text with assignments for class) call lippincott and order directly from there. They give you a discount and add what you need to your account. I hope that helps some. Let me know if you have any other questions! Beth :)

    @whoAmItoSay how close will you be living to the school? Is there any way you could buy a cheap car?? If not, maybe there will be a classmate who lives In Olathe that could help with transportation.

    I have not received any information. I hope we hear something soon. I have been in contact with financial aid and do have tentative dates of each module along with the classes for each. I can post that info on the Facebook group page tomorrow if you would like.

    @ehinrichs98 I emailed my paperwork on Monday. I thought they would send me an email confirming they received it but didn’t. I might try to call today to make sure they have my info and ask when we will receive more details.

    @PleaseDontForgetMyName I am currently taking Nutrition and have to take Statistics and English Comp II this summer at JCCC. What class are you needing? I paid my deposit and emailed my acceptance paperwork to confirm that I am attending in the fall. If you were accepted you have a spot, but if you don’t pass the class needed with a C or better you lose your place.
