    I don't have my schedule yet. They told me it would be a few days after they received my form, which I faxed last week. So, any day now. I'm dying to get it, too, because i need to figure out my childcare....another expense.

    I still have to get my financial aid worked out. I received a notice that I don't qualify for anything because I have a bachelor's degree, unless I fill out 3 forms to appeal.

    I estimated the cost of the books only. It doesn't even include the shots, scrubs, steth, and all the other little things we might need along the way. And the tuition will be increased this fall!yikes.Did you get your schedule and location for the clinicals? I am little impatient these days waiting for any info about my program.

    I don't qualify for aid either because I have my Bachelor's degree as well. What kind of forms can you fill out to appeal? I've never heard of that so I'm just curious =)

    That is interesting that they will allow you to appeal it. I am going to the Gateway LPN program in the fall, but I already also have a bachelors in another area. I wonder if I would qualify for financial aid. I don't want to take out any loans, but would be interested in grants. Did they say you may qualify for grants or loans?

    I was told today that I won't qualify for grants, but loans only. I was also told to search search search for scholarships. My advisor told me that she is on the committee for one that awards $1500!

    it's a skills bag filled with all of the stuff you will need to do your skills check-offs, and complete your required hours of lab practice. PPE, trach kits, foley catheter kits, IV stuff, phlebotomy, etc.

    Thank you fromthesea...I appreciate the info.

    Also, can you tell me approximately how many hours per week you study, not including class and clinicals. I'm trying to work out my work and childcare and that info would be very helpful.

    Thanks again!

    i study about 4 hours per day every day. that does not include class, clinical, required lab hours, or assignments, all of which vary by what block you are in and what you are currently learning.
