    hey! what type of drug test does the school do?
  5. by   Txstarr972
    I am on my 3rd week, had my 1st anatomy test last night.......wow! It was tough! I like the school alot though, I am learning SOOO much, but I will tell you, it's not easy!

    The drug test is the swab in the mouth one. I never had one like that before, they make you scrape the inside of your mouth with a toothbrush looking thing. Weird but whatever.

    Well Im for one am very happy with the way DNI is helping me getting ready. Thankfully my Post 9/11 G.I. Bill will pay for everything! And I also get the Pell Grant!!!! Everything is working out perfectly, and pretty soon I will be starting class in Nov. 2, 2009!!!!

    I got my CPR qualifications in the Navy, as well as my Immunizations up to date before I was discharged.... Man Im pumped up!!!!

    Classes are going great, but there was a fight....yes a fight in the parking lot yesterday! Required 4 police cars and an ambulance. It was the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen. Last I checked this was supposed to be a college with adults.....good grief.

    LOL....tx starr how did you prepare for the pre test and the NET test?
  9. by   Txstarr972
    I really didn't need to prepare because at the time I had just finished 2 semesters of community college, which included math and english comp. The NET was pretty easy, the math only had like 2 or 3 algebra questions. The rest is basic math, and you need to know your decimals/fraction conversions, add/subtract fractions/long division etc.
    The reading was harder for me than the math, they had stories for you to read and then they asked you questions like what was the main idea. It's all multiple choice, and some seemed like trick questions to me so be careful on that part.

    Good luck!

    ok...thanks. I guess i just need to suck it up and go and take the test. I've been hesitating because I thought it was hard and I wanted to study first. But if it's basic math I should be fine. How long was the test? How long do you wait for your scores? Does the school require you to wear scrubs all the time?

    The total time with the pretest and NET, I believe I was there a little over 2 hours. They called me within a few days to tell me my score. Yes, in school you always have to wear scrubs. They provide scrubs for clinical but for class you have to get your own, it doesnt matter what color, and they have to be the V-neck ones, no wrap around or anything like that.

    Omg... Was these nursing students that are acting like children? Well nevertheless i am glad to hear that everything is going fine for you. Be blessed and good luck!

    Do they really enforce the "no wrap tops" thing? When I came to school to sign my paperwork, the admissions representative was like "They'll tell you at orientation to only wear solid scrubs and not print ones, but as you can see nobody really listens...." looking around at the students wearing print tops. The (expensive) scrubs I already own have a wrap top, so I'm really hoping I don't have to buy another new set.

    I start next week and I'm SO excited! Shot clinic on Wednesday and orientation on Friday...it's all finally happening!
