    I was told that less people go the ADN evenings/weekend route and that there are still about 9-11 slots left. Maybe that's why. Also, if you take about 2 classes a semester it would take about 3 years. I was considering the BSN, but the extra classes like Computers and more Math is making me shy away from it. Have you taken any of the Computer classes there? Were they really hard? How about the professors?

    After the spring semester I'll have all of my pre reqs done and out of the way to apply to the ADN program. Except for Pathology. I'll be taking that over the summer. So the only courses I'll have is the 8 NUR courses which can be completed in like two or three semesters. I talked to someone at the school and they say that there are more slots available for the ADN than the BSN. More people are choosing the BSN. For the BSN track, I have not taken Statistics, Computer, Humanities or College Algebra. I see they have a lot of computer classes I had counted 18 NUR courses for the BSN track, why would that take 3 years? Wouldn't it take less than that?

    Okay, I am looking at the ADN RN track, and the BSN track The ADN track only has 8 NUR courses, while the BSN has like 18 NUR courses If you go the ADN route, will you be adequately prepared to sit for the NCLEX test? They don't even offer the NCLEX preparation class with the ADN. But with the BSN they do I also am curious about the success rate of those who go the ADN route and pass the NCLEX. I"m looking at the BSN and I feel that I'd be more well rounded as a RN and better prepared to take the NCLEX. The BSN has more NUR courses than the ADN. At a lot of the local community colleges in my area, the ADN has at least 12-14 NUR courses. At mercy I don't even see Pharmacology unless you're going the BSN route. I don't want to get the ADN and find myself going back to Mercy to get the BSN because I can't pass the NCLEX

    A&P 1 students,,,, How ya doing?

    I have never heard of a thing like that. Also a lot of students don't always know the level of difficulty a professor is for a certain class, they just pick them based on their schedules. So if the professor is too easy, then that is the college's fault for hiring them

    I was questioning whether I wanted to be a nurse from the threads on allnurses.com

    It certainly wouldn't hurt. why you bring that up?
  9. My mother was sick in the hopsital for a week. When she got better, i asked her how did the nurses act towards her; if they seemed stressed out, frustrated or burnt out from their job. She said that all the RNs seemed fine. They were smiling and didn't seem like they hated their job. They were very busy but it didn't affect their attitudes, they were pleasant at least to her. She even said that her RN gave her a hug before she left. From reading allnurses.com, the posts had me thinking that most RNs hated their jobs, and that they were always running around with a scowl on their face from being overworked and underpaid. It made me question whether I wanted to be a nurse from all the complaining on here.

    do you think that you are going to get less than a C in A&P? If you get a B, I wouldn't take it over

    Being a RN in Quebec Canada

    I live in Michigan so canada is not that far. I hear that Quebec is a nice place to live and I would like to work as an RN there once I graduate from nursing school. Is it hard to get a job as a RN out there?
