    @Stoofanie - I have to cancel all of my vacation plan . I pay for school out of pocket, so I really need to save my money right now. It would be nice to go back home (I'm from KY), but school is more important. I'll see them in 2 years....When I graduate!

    @Lizzyru - I just started a job as a CNA at Banner Baywood. The nurse manager told me that if I got accepted into nuring school, they would work with my school schedule. So, for the 1st block, I am going to try to work full-time (3 days per week). Once my 6 months is over, I will be able to go PRN. That's my plan. I really want to make sure that I keep my grades up! I was told that when applying for New Grad positions, GPA is taken into consideration. I heard that you're not even considered if you have less than a 3.0 GPA. It's hard to get a new grad position anyway....I don't want my grades to completely eliminate me!

    I thank you so much for all of the info that you have given thus far! This is a really special time in my life (an anyone else who has been accepted). I am both nervous and excited at the same time! My dream of becoming a nurse is finally becoming a reality!!!!

    @Stoofanie - PM message me your email address. I will send you the schedule that GCUJen sent me from the cohort before us. She sent me the schedule for Blocks 1 and 2 at St Joe's. Now, I can't guarantee that it will be the same, but it should be similar. If you can't PM me yet, just send me an email. My email address is johnnyarei@yahoo.com

    @Ramo188 - Sent! Congrats on getting accepted!!!!! I'm not sure if we need our CPR card before the program starts. I know we will eventually need to have it though. I had to have mine for my job.

    @Ramo188 - Do you have health/immunization orientation Friday too? I am just trying to find out if the Friday date is for everyone or just for the students at St Joe's.

    @Stoofanie - Sent! As far as the location, I guess . I'm not familiar with GCU's campus....But, I'll find where I need to go!!!! I am SOOO excited!

    Yeah I'm leaving work early for it! I figure I'd dress semi nice or whatever! hahaha. Those schedules were very awesome especially to get into a time frame! I can't wait till I get to set my schedule after the orientation. Have you guys done the finger print clearance??

    I already have my Level 1 Fingerprint Clearance Card. I was going to apply to the Spring 2012 program at Scottsdale Healthcare. So I applied for it back in August of last year. But, due to family obligations, I was not able to start school in January. I think I got the card in October.
