    Broward College vs PBSC RN Program

    Student moral - mixed. It's a lot of hard work and it feels unorganized at times. Professors - 90% are great. There will always be some sour ones anywhere you go lol. Just about everyone passed the boards and majority of my classmates have jobs surprisingly lol. I graduated in May and had a job by early July. I work in an ICU at a level 1 trauma hospital and love it. Up here pbsc grads are favored. If you want to work in this area, pbsc is a good choice.

    I graduated from pbsc. It was rigorous and I feel I was very prepared for the nclex. You def get what you put in, so be diligent with your studying and you'll do well anywhere.

    If it's pharmacology, I have the third edition of the book. Let me know if you want it - $10. Most of the time the edition changes are minute, but it's best to ask the professor for their opinion.

    Nur 102-Fundamentals of Nursing- Help?

    Type in Nclex 3500 on yahoo and click on "review content select -nclex RN 3500-institutional review". Once your on the page, click on the first bold print: nursing topics. It will give you a list of topics to select. This site was extremely useful to me throughout nursing school. Hope that helps!!

    There's one that covers everything- from fundamentals to OB. It will be useful for all hesi tests you take from beginning of school to end.

    My tip is to get the hesi book for your hesi exams AND to practice doing nclex style questions for EVERY test. The tests are not like tests you've had in the past. I wish I had started doing questions in first semester. I started second semester and it helped get me in the right mind frame for testing. It also helped me with nclex. I was able to take my nclex 3 weeks after graduation because I had been doing questions since second semester. It helps for school exams and for your long term goal of passing he nclex :-)

    Congrats to those accepted. I'm a May 2014 graduate. Pbsc is a tough program so be prepared!! Best part is that I feel that I was well prepared for my nclex. I found a job quickly and it seems pbsc students are favored for hire :-). I have books and uniforms (xs) that I'm selling if interested. Again, congratulations and good luck!!
  11. I'm currently at smmc and I love it. I work icu. If you are looking for variety it's the place to be. There is a critical care course you can take and transfer to icu or step down if that is your goal. My mom works for VA and lives the benefits so there are pluses to each spot. Just depends on your goals :-) congrats! If you have specific questions you can message me.

    Start with Vital Signs. Know what they are, how to measure them and what the normals are. VS include pulse, blood pressure, temperature, respirations and pulse oximetry. In the big purple Fundamentals book, I believe it is Ch 17. That will be a part of your frontloading along with memorizing and doing several additional skills.

    Just to answer some Qs I saw :) -Yes, online is harder and there is more work to do then if you are in class. However, I personally would not recommend it if you have never done it. They di a lot of group work in class, but at least there are people you can talk to and figure it out with. Online is usually out of the loop and asking lecture students for info. If you are a self starter and can figure things out on your own- online will work for you -The quizzes can have all grades/attempts on 1 page. You end up doing that quiz every semester and bringing 2 copies. 1 to hand in, 1 for your portfolio. -2 copies of the ethical agreement too. You end up doing that every semester as well -frontloading is when you are paired up with a classmate and have to present a ton of new skills. They teach you them at your first skills lab day and then you are off to study. Its a lot all at once, but just practice and ask questions. Skills include how to take a blood pressure, tenperature, how to walk a patient, get then out of bed, roll them on the bed, etc. -most semesters have started a private facebook page just for your class. Someone should do that. It can be extremely helpful for everyone.

    Hey all- congratulations on being accepted! Welcome to the journey!! I am a 3rd semester student and wanted to give you all a different perspective.Yes- The program is very difficult, BUT it is doable. Know your learning style and find what studying method works for you- then stick with it. You will have bad grades lol. It's more about recovering and tweeking your study method. Ask others what works and try it. Use NCLEX books!!! Study with people who are getting good grades. If you have a family, bf/gf, job, etc.... It will be MORE difficult for you. Adjust. I got an A in pharm, B in 1st sem, A in Med Surge and currently have an A is Peds/OB. I have never had a PIP and I don't feel like the program is as bad as some believe. Go in with an open mind and put in your best effort. It IS doable. Good luck!!
