    Best planner for nursing school?

    I use Lilly Pulitzer as my nursing school planner and I can't say enough good things about it!! It has a yearly calendar, monthly calendar (with space for notes about the month), and a daily calendar with plenty of space to write assignments. It is adorable and there are fun stickers inside to spice your calendar up. I personally use the large size.

    Pre-Nursing Study Tips?

    Hi Everyone, I've been accepted to attend an accelerated BSN program starting this summer and I want to get a head start on studying. I am already reviewing my A + P notes, and I'm planning to learn some medical terminology too. Is there anything else I should do to prepare?? Thank you!

    Stressed pre-nursing undergrad

    I took about 2 years to complete my prerequisites, I already have a bachelor's and I will be starting an accelerated bsn program this summer. So- you are definitely not too late. I also think if you have taken all the classes you mentioned Developmental Psych will be a breeze for you. However, I do think you should expect to have an intense course load during nursing school (as others have mentioned). If you are determined and work hard you will be able to do it!

    A&P 1 lecture or lab? Whats harder?

    As others have said it can definitely depend on your learning style. I found the labs to be easier because I learn well with a hands-on approach. The lecture has so much information so it's good to find a study strategy that works for you. I liked A+P II much better than I because it was more conceptual, less rote memorization. Good luck in your classes!

    How I passed NCLEX in 75 questions

    @RunnerRN2015 Thank you for the advice! I am starting nursing school in May and I will definitely keep it in mind :)
  8. Hi @Ashley313! I looked at all of those schools too when applying. Of the 3 I would say Simmons was my favorite because they have a solid program that has been around for a long time (they told me >100 years at the info session!) and good clinical placements. My second choice of the three would be MGH, and then Northeastern. I read a lot on here about the drawbacks of the online classes at Northeastern- plus if you're doing NP you're only guaranteed the NP in management track (for the hybrid program anyway). Sounds like you have a very solid background, good luck!

    UMass Boston Accelerated BSN Summer 2015

    @deanna1959 @ruthc Mine was the same as Ruth's- it didn't say whether I was accepted or not. However a "To-Do List" popped up with the item "Deposit Fee", as did a section for financial aid. I've heard from other accepted students that it happened to them too but I'm not sure if it actually means anything. Good luck!

    @sarahjr89 My application status just changed yesterday and they said I would receive a letter in the mail within 14 days notifying me of their decision. I'm dying to find out! Has yours changed yet?
