    You don't need Chemistry to pass the Med Math. They will teach you the formulas to use and some of it is common sense (like how many tablets). You are able to review and see what you got wrong. The majority of the teachers are more than willing to help you understand and go over the formulas with you individually if you make an appointment with them during their office hours. Don't stress over it!

    Just a heads up...do not try to plan your schedule around a particular clinical day just yet. You will not pick your clinical day until registration. Also, anyone who is attending the program and living outside of Montgomery County, there is a waiver that you can get called the Maryland Health Manpower Shortage. This will allow you to pay in county tuition rates. The forms must be picked up in the nursing office and turned into the registration office. Be sure to do it the first week or two of class (or when you register). Best of luck, speak up if you need help or advice.

    MCapplicant, no worries on where you get in with taking those classes. They will all transfer for your BSN even is you go through MC's ADN program. MC has several transfer agreements with other colleges for your BSN/MSN.

    As far as the math test, it is not Med Math, used to be ProCalc. You have to take it in the MLC at the campus. You will get several attempts to pass it, be sure to pay attention to rounding rules. Personally I never used the Calculate With Confidence book. This is a link for a free PDF download of a Nursing Care Plan Book, no need to buy one you can download this and save it to your computer or tablet (or phone). http://taskurun.files.wordpress.com/2011/10/nursing-care-plan-guidelines-for-individualizing.pdf

    Advice for Incoming Montgomery College Nursing Students

    Yes, the program has gone through many changes. You will need to be extremely flexible and save time out for things like lab hours and such. Just take it one day at a time and you will get through.

    Current Montgomery College nursing students

    I am not sure what class you are looking at that has an NU class as a pre-req? All the NU classes are nursing classes that you take during the nursing program.
