    SW Boces Entrance Exam

    Please look in the beginning of this thread. It has a lot of information on the Cnet test and once you apply and get a test date, you will receive a form to order the study materials. Those study materials are the exact format of the test.
  2. I'm in the same boat as you, fgreen. I am also in an accelerated nursing program and its Monday-Friday, 8:30AM-2:30PM. I also work full-time (37.5 hours) as a nursing technician at a hospital 3PM-11PM. It's extremely overwhelming and I only completed a week so far. I can't even imagine how I'll feel a few months from now. As of now, I am having difficulty planning meals and other chores that need to be done around the house. I've been eating out A LOT lately because I'm too exhausted to go home and cook meals. Plus, I'm always on the run. I hardly even have time to go out and do food shopping. Other times, my husband does the cooking when he has time, but he's usually always on the run also. Good luck!

    OK, because all of us on the thread were accepted into the LPN program located in Elmsford. All BOCES schools probably run things a little differently. You should definitely contact the school first thing Monday morning and tell them the situation. They should be able to help. Good luck.

    Arodriguez, did you get accepted to Southern Westchester Boces in Elmsford, NY? Because we only had to pay $900 from two weeks of the date of our award letter and then come up with another $800 by August 30th for books/supplies.

    Deedee, what a great question to ask....I'm also very curious to know the answer. To add to her question Sjessamy, how many classes are there per day & how long are each class? Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks again for all your help!

    Stephanie made me realize that I put the wrong website, lol. It's actually www.nyc.org/hhc .. But Alicia, I'm glad you knew what I meant!

    sjessamy, thank you so much for all of the wonderful information you've provided all of us throughout the thread. It feels so good to finally get the answers to many of the questions that we've all been dying to know. Just another quick question if you don't mind, did the classes from BOCES transfer to RCC? Or did you have to retake nursing 101 etc..

    I do the same thing. if you look on HHC.org employment opportunities, they are usually always looking for LPNs. They start them out at like 40,000 & change.

    Any recent BOCES grads out there..

    Thanks for the reply, Loveit25. I was wondering... do you know how they split up the classes? I know that during the day, there are 90 students that are accepted. I'm sure that they split the 90 students up into two or three different classes. Not sure if they do the same during the night program. Are there any specific reference books that I should get?! Or a drug book? Also, what color scrubs do we wear during clinics? Thanks SO much!!

    She interviewed me too. She was so nice. Keep us posted on the news you receive. If you didn't seem like a lunatic, and say that you wanted to become a nurse because of the money, then I'm sure you are in!

    SW Boces Entrance Exam

    Good, I'm so glad it went well. You'll get a letter within a week or so. Who interviewed you? Were any of the questions on here similar to the ones you were asked during the interview?

    Wonder Woman, I already posted two threads for any recent grads to tell us any useful information about the program. I will keep you updated if I find out any information! Alicia, I agree. Enjoying our freedom is the best thing we could do right now... I know we are all eager to begin the program.. but I'm sure once we start and get bombarded with school work, we will be wishing we still had our freedom! lol. Gigi, I'm sure you'll do just fine. I was only interviewed by one person.... and then met the program coordinator toward the end of my interview. She came in briefly to introduce herself. So you probably won't get interviewed by 4 people. Just prepare by going over the questions... and you'll be okay. Be confident and smile! Good luck and let us all know how it goes. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

    If there are any recent BOCES graduates out there that would be kind enough to provide some information about the LPN program that you've completed, that would be excellent. A few other members and I from this site recently got accepted to Southern Westchester BOCES in Elmsford. The school will not provide us with any information and they keep telling us that we have to wait until orientation on August 30th.. (which seems like forever). So I was wondering if you can provide us with any info. If so, it would be very much appreciated. For example, what did you like/dislike about the program? How often did you study each night? Did you work? (if so, how many hrs)? Can you recommend any books or supplies? Thank you SO much!

    SW Boces Entrance Exam

    I know, I definitely agree... I wish it was sooner. Everything has been a waiting process... waiting for our scores, waiting for a call for an interview, and then waiting for an acceptance letter.. and now waiting for orientation. LOL. Even if we could get some info from students who recently graduated from the program would be nice... But I can't seem to find anyone on here. They are the ones who can really tell us what to expect, what books and supplies we should get... etc etc.
