  1. Hi ALL, I am almost at the finish line. I am looking for study buddies in NY that is getting ready for the CPNE. I live in Brooklyn. My test application is already completed. Also anyone from New York who have tested with the new edition and is willing to assist with studying for the CPNE I will be very happy for the help. I am mostly free on the weekends and at times I can make some changes to my weekly schedule. Feel free to email me because I can't see the IM/message from allnurses. Sorry about that. Looking forward to meeting new people..... Genaluvya@yahoo.com

    no problem

    Montefiore Med Test

    Hi, they ask basic math questions about iv drip, dosage calculations and converting from different units. They ask med administration and about basic nursing skills that are simple. Ex: when feeding a person laying in bed what will you do? possible Answer, elevate head of bed to prevent aspiration. Its very easy,You will pass. Good Luck. FYI: Its multiple choice and you can bring your own basic calculator.

    No Experience Necessary

    maybe you should do assisted living or school nursing....
  10. Hi, It depends if your family, mostly husband/boyfriend, mom, dad, in laws, etc are able to help out alot. (Not sure about your family composition, any kids?) It is do able but it is very hard work. When going to LPN school I worked full time 9-5 pm as a Case Manager and went to school 6 to 10 pm Mon to Thurs. Boy was I sleepy. It was hard for me to study most of the time and some times I will dose off while at work. My body felt so achy and my brain felt fizzled. I did that for about 5 to 6 months.Luckily I had the help of my amazing husband, parents and in laws to help with my then 1 year old son and to just keep house work done (grocery shopping, house chores). I'm glad my family is very supportive. Lots of nursing classmates have went through divorce and breakups while in school. School is alot of strain on others. Needless to say I was happy when my hours for school changed to Fri in evening and weekends 9 to 5. Felt like a new person, lol. I had more time to study and to spend with my family. Not to say that you cant do it but just manage your time, gets lots of sleep, try to get some 'me' time and always have a Plan A,B,C and D. Especially for child care and for those 'all of a sudden changes' of schedule for nursing school. Opps, just realize I didn't answer the question. Now to the hospital job, I think it will be a great thing for you to be more exposed to health care plus you get tuition help when advancing and maybe a promotion. But it will also be good for you to have more time to study, like you will with a per diem job. My decision will be if you don't have kids to pick the hospital job. Keep us posted.....

    I want to go to Mildred Elley

    ok, im sure you will get into one of those programs. I like that you have a goals set and back up plans. I also do the same. If you are doing patho you can apply to downstate or adelphi.

    I want to go to Mildred Elley

    Don't worry, I don't mind answering the questions. I had to take A and P 1 & 2 over cause my science were more than 5 years at the time (have a previous degree) and the school also gave other classes such as medical terminology, etc. So that took me 5 months to complete and the clinical portion of the program took 11 months, i think. sorry if my estimation is off. I worked mon to fri 9 to 5 pm and the school was 30 minutes away from my job. I studied when traveling home on the train and on the weekends/when convenient. I started the LPN program in March 2012, I graduated in Sept 2012 and passed N-Clex in Jan 2013. I started working at the end of Jan at an assisted living facility. Its not hard to find a job its just where you look, who you know and how the economy is at that time. The economy is harsh but not just to new grad nurses, any new grad.

    I want to go to Mildred Elley

    Thanks @ mrscombocurlz and mrsmussa Mrsmussa, I remember when I saw students in their Mildred uniform, I felt the same way. MrsComboCurlz, evening is appealing. There isn't too many evening programs now for LPN or RN. I was thinking about applying to Cochran and D. Hophner (sorry for spelling) evening program but I will be traveling from Brooklyn by MTA. Leaving work at 4 pm and Im not sure if I will be able to do the commute. Have you guys also thought about Nassau Community College or Beth Isreal?

    I want to go to Mildred Elley

    Hi, I went to school Mon to Thurs 6 to 10 pm before I enter the nursing program. Then on Fridays (6 to 10 pm) for lecture and Sat and Sun for lab/clinicals (9-5 pm) when in the nursing program. what I love the most about the school is that the professors and staff are nice and really care but I heard most do not work there anymore. They try to fit your schedule with tutoring sessions when you need it. I have no problems transferring my credits over to private schools for associate rn. I know that PACE accepts the credits. Mildred has articulation with Helene Fuld, so they will definantely take any Mildred students. CUNY, ASA school and LIU will not accept Mildred credits so far. But you will be a nurse by then. You have to weigh your options out. After finishing school I was well prepared for the N-cLEx and was offered several jobs. plus the career unit help with lifetime employment. At the end of the day I am happy that I took a chance on this school because I am a nurse and will be continuing my education to be a RN.

    Swedish Institute?

    ok thanks so much! I will stay on top of them and I hope all your classes transfer over. I wish I knew what classes will transfer because Im also trying to get into Monroe College. I am a second degree student and I am a LPN. Just want to make sure that I chose the best school that will not cost me an arm and a leg. Ill keep you posted.
