The evening program is from 4:30-10pm. The first semester we take Nur 102(therapeutic communication), Nur103 (Math for Meds), Nur100 (foundations), Nur 101 ( fundamentals of nursing), A&P 1, and Psych. If you transfer in A&P and Psych you will only have to take the nursing courses. The math class you can test out of if you're an LPN. Our schedule is as follows if you're only taking Nursing courses:
1) Monday: Foundations 4:30pm-7pm and Math 8pm-9pm
2) Tuesday and Thursdays: In the beginning before we have clinical in the hospital we have clinical skills lab inside the school. Clinical skills lab runs from 4:30-6pm and from 7-9 I think. There are two time slots because they split the class up into four groups. Once we start clinical in the hospital, we have one day in the hospital one day in clinical skills lab at school. Some students have skills lab on Tuesday and some on Thursday. The day that you do not have skills lab, you are in the hospital which is from 4:30-10:30pm. Psych meets on Thursday from 7-10. If you have psych then you're in the hospital on Tuesday and have clinical skills lab (inside school) from 4:30-6 because you have to make it to psych at 7pm.
3) Wednesday- Nur 102( therapeutic communication) & Nur 101 ( fundamentals).
4) Friday- Anatomy if you did not transfer it in.
1) Nur 101 ( fundamentals)- quizzes are 25 questions 4 points each and the midterm and final are 100 questions each. Study, Study, Study because if you mess up on the quizzes you can end up failing the test.
2) Nur 102 ( therapeutic)- an easy A, the tests are straight from the lecture handouts. Quizzes are 25 questions. Midterm and final are 50 ques.
3) Nur 103( Math)- All exams are 25 questions. Just do all the chapter review questions.
4) Nur 100 ( foundations)- The same as 101 but the midterm and final are only 50 questions.
5) Anatomy and Psych- don't think those are too bad
Depending on your course load, it can become overwhelming. I do not find the material too difficult and the exams are not extremely hard. The grading system is harsh. A( 94-100) B (93-86) C (85-78) below a 78 you fail the class. You can only repeat the same class twice or you get kicked out. You have the option to withdraw. If you have to repeat nur 100 you cannot take any nursing courses the next semester.
There are times where we have 10 chapters for exams and sometimes we will only have two. It depends. Some students complain about the course load but it all depends how you study. We don't have any study groups ( don't know why) but oh well. Just read you chapters, do problems, use outside resources and you should do fine.
There are working students in the class. We have CNAs, LPNs, etc.
Hoped this helped I know its too long..
