Just had my pinning ceremony yesterday for PGCC. Thank God I'm outta there!!!! So for the new cohort coming in, things are changing. We now use ATI (it was used as a practice run this semester, & it helped us out because it gave us extra credit) Next semester they may start using it as an exit exam. All of the Med Surg professors were awesome except for one, which will by your 1040... *ML* is all I will say, you'll figure it out when the time approaches..lol Psych by far was the worst subject for my graduating class, out of 64 only 23 were pinned, mainly because of psych. So I cannot stress how important it is to make sure you build on your 1020 foundation. Take that class very seriously along with Med 2 because they will save you. Read your materials and always remember that you're not studying to memorize, you're studying to understand. My clinical sections always worked in my favor, I was always able to get the sections I wanted. Also if you're not an organized person, you might want to change that cause it will save you as well. Get a calendar, use it, make it your bible. Invest in outside sources such as Saunders, Youtube videos etc. You can only fail one class and at this point the program has become a "weed out" so don't be afraid to reach out when you need help or don't understand something. Study with individuals who are doing better than you !!! Say hi to other nursing individuals, esp those in a higher class because they can always give you the scoop. Form a tight and useful study group... I think that's all for now. Oh & Passing is 80% & up. So you can only get a B's or A's in the program.
