The nursing program was rigorous but doable. You have to dedicate a lot of time to study and prepare. If you remain focused, you will pass the program.

Other comments

Lecture by instructor and hands on instruction along with class participation. While doing my training in the hospital I was able to perform heel sticks along with pediatrics. I learned how to have patients and accuracy when performing sticks on a patient along with making patients as comfortable as possible. The hardest part of training while in the hospital was knowing where to take samples to in the lab. The most enjoyable was the fast paced work environment being hands on in the E.R. and running STAT labs.
