WCCCD nursing program is insane!!! Your first 71/2 wks. (1st semester) you have three classes,all of which are four hours long,two of them twice a week. Two of them have lecture and lab portions of the class. The amount of the reading required is heavy and to make matters worse you have an exam every week in every class. More than three wrong? You fail the test and that is just the beginning. Not trying to be negative but obviously all schools are different because there is not one person in my school's nursing program,or that has graduated from it that has said that "it"s really not that hard". Actually everyone i have talked to have said it only get worse,the further along you get. Me personally... i think it is all about time management and knowing how to study and knowing your learning style. Oh and do alot of n-clex practice questions,they will help you throughout it, all the way to your state boards.
