    PASSED NCLEX with 75 Q! What I did Differently

    Congrats! I graduated 12/04 and sit for boards 12/29, Kaplan live review is actually incorporated into our curriculum (somewhat helpful for me) but I have been studying/reviewing using Uworld and Lacharity PDA and I have already seen an improvement in the way I think and answer the questions. I would like a copy of your notes when you have the time kelzp08@gmail.com.

    Riverside application deadline May 30th

    Sorry forgot to answer a couple of questions. We do go to school for a majority of the summer. We are done with lecture, my cohort has two finals and after the second final on Thursday then we are out until September 3rd! You get approx a month break between each 13 week term. We did have the month of April off so I think it balances out.

    Generally speaking, you'll be in class half the day Mondays because the when the faculty has any meetings, they'll be Monday afternoon. You'll probably have at least 2 days through the week where you can expect to be in class/lab until about 3/3:30. Clinicals our first term were on Fridays from 7:30-12. Was nutrition a required pre-req for you all? Just curious :)

    Yes ma'am, you'll be perfectly fine. One of my classmates has a used book, I helped her register for Pearson's website and she has the same access (w/o an access code) that I have (w/ access code).

    I hope in caught you before you purchase that med surge book. I bought the nursing lab access code and it is not necessary. You have access to the books website for free, just register (for free) felt like I got bamboozled, lol. This was my first time ordering from Rittenhouse but I'm going back to using my book price comparison sites ( such as bigwords.com) or just use Amazon for everything! :-)

    It varies, it can take up to 2-2.5yrs if my memory serves me right. They allow you to go at your own pace so you can take 1 class at a time or take on a full load and be done w/in a year I believe.

    It's not as competitive as the other programs in the area but not super easy either. I would still apply because you never know unless you try :). I would definitely study for the TEAS V using the ATI study guide because you would need to get a decent score on that test. It really depends on how many people apply but I say to go for it and remember any other pre-reqs you still need to take just try to do really well and it we'll help boost your GPA.

    Oh ok. I don't know much about Sentara's program, I've heard it is good though! Very competitive! My plan is to go to their first open house for next yr because I would like to do their RN-BSN and I know there are some pre-reqs I will need to take. But GL to you and keep in touch!

I have my last pharm clinical this Friday and my last health assessment next Friday . We are almost finished with our second term, time is really flying by!

    I used the ATI study guide and all of those practice tests (online and in the book). I also used McGraw-Hill's book with the practice tests but only took a couple of those.

    Riverside School of Health Careers RN program

    Yes the instructors and other faculty are awesome! They are sincere about wanting us to succeed and I've had a great experience so far.
