    Stanbridge College

    I have not really seen anyone go into details about the school. I am thinking of attending next month. But, want a school with good high tech materials, nice teachers, and great clinic locations? I've heard Stanbridge has good updated medical supplies, and materials needed? Also, I know that 5 years ago LVN's had to also do the CNA training which was included in the program? I'm told now that's not necessary, how can that be true because we work side to side..and it used to be mandatory to do the CNA also..and the clinicals, can someone verify this to be true or not? What do you like most about the school? Do the teachers rush the math, because I am aware MATH is nursing..and know the math can be the hardest part for a lot of students...? Where does the school contract clinics too, what hospitals? Do you like the locations that the school offers clinics at? * Any teachers you'd not recommend and why? Vs. What kind of medical supplies, equipment do they have there? How was financial aid...(military family) not sure how were going to do this yet? lol but were determined? WHAT do you find most difficult in the LVN program? Sorry about all the questions, I'm hoping to get bits and pieces because I know there are a lot lol Thanks J

So, many people say it's easy lol..hmm I must be very out of the loop because I bought the hesi book and find some parts hard...=/ How long do they give you to do the hesi test? I heard 5 hours? Is there a LOT of math...arrrrr, what kind MOSTLY? I heard the Anatomy & Physiology are the most difficult, how so? Hints? Thanks. J:)

    Anyone a student at Pacific College in Costa Mesa?

    I AGREE if your "lucky".. meaning to get a good instructor! The one I got RUINED my entire experience, she was DRAMA! So, I'm assuming you must not have gotten her. I myself, and others dropped just because of her! What a nightmare this school was for me!

    Pacific College in Costa Mesa

    I DO NOT recommend this school for MANY reasons: 1. Yes, the labs ....What labs okay? Seriously, it's THAT bad! 2. The teacher I "had" caused more trouble than I can even begin to explain. I ended up dropping OUT thats how BAD it was! (Lvn program). I just DO not recommend THIS school I was highly disappointed!

    kaplan college in Vista

    I was wondering if anyone knew what the next sign up class is after the Oct opening? I am struggling with math, english, physics, and am taking some summer classes to brush up..Why is it I wonder why kaplan is the only nursing school that makes people take a hesi entry test..shrugs oh well, it is what it is. I bought the book, and now I feel dumb lol because everyone keeps saying how EZ it is...hmm, I must be out dated I guess because I found parts of it HARD, any suggestions? Also, I am a military spouse and was told that the 6,000 is no longer available? Ps: To all military spouses: I know of a site online that offers FREE tuitoring to all active duty spouses, if you'd like more info send me a pm k =) J

    ADD and social anxiety need advice

    I am not depressed and I'm finding that most MD's want to put pt's on antidepressants? Can fish oils help? What else is out there for anxitety and ADDHD that doesn't mess with our minds? Nothing personal I know it works wonders for many people, but I've tried many meds and so far nothing has worked to make me "focus" and take that edge off? Any advise, I'm going back to school and can't seem to "focus" and keep things in? Let along I'm so over whelmed I feel dumb at this point lol... Frusterated but willing to hear what some of you may advise to help? Thanks =)
