    PNW BOCES Fall 2010

    No card yet, I guess they keep it on file. I agree there's a lot of information in the book on how to become a more efficient studier. I haven't taken notes but I'm pretty good at retaining information after reading. I can't believe orientation is so close. I'm getting excited and nervous all at the same time. Trying to fit in vacations and some real quality time with the family before the course begins.

    Already took the class. It lasted for 3 1/2 hours and the instructor was hilarious.

    Saw your message not able to respond from there. Apparently I don't have 15 posts yet. I'm only aware of one book that we need. Success in Practical/Vocational Nursing ISBN:9781416056591 I think they should've given a full list so we could start getting our books now and spread out the expenses. They gave me a list of covered topics for the program but said it changes depending on the instructor. The following is a partial list through our first clinicals.... Orientation Body Structure & Function Life Cycle First Aid Basic Nursing Skills Intro to Med Surg Digestive System Cardio Vasc System Resp System Genitourinary Musculo Skeletal CLINICAL: Nursing Home

    Perserverance will pay off! It's just a terrible market for everyone all around right now.

    Good for you Allison.... YAY!!!!!!!!! One step closer... Thanks, I am excited, and nervous all at the same time lol. It's a one on one interview and the woman is super nice. They'll ask... Why you want to be a nurse? What was your biggest obstacle you had to overcome past or present? What do you think is the most important skill a nurse can have? How would you feel if you were given a negative evaluation by your instructor? If you began to feel like you were going off track, or like you couldn't handle continuing in the program what would you do? These are just a few that I can remember... My best wishes are with.. Let me know how it goes. GOOD LUCK! :)

    I got an 80 the second time. I think the interview went well so I'm hoping I get accepted. I chose to go FT days too. Your right, it's gonna be tough but the daytime program gets their degrees in half the time. It was exactly a week for my scores to show up online, and exactly a week later for the interview. I watch for the mail like a hawk now, lol... So far nothing. Christina

    Hi Allison, I took the TEAS test June 1st and had my interview a little over a week ago. Still haven't receivved an acceptance or denial letter. I read a post by you on the SW board and was in the same bost as you. I too, took the TEAS previously and was told I should retest to secure a seat only to hear that I had indeed scored their minimum requirement. Have you decided day or evening??
