Hello everyone. My name is Cortney, I'm 31 and from Sacramento, CA.
I found out last week (on my birthday!) that I was finally accepted into ARC's nursing program!! I applied 7 times= 3.5 years waiting. I will start in January 2013 after passing the TEAS V. I am so excited! I have waited so long for this and somedays I cant believe it's actually happening! I have worked as a CNA and home-healthcare aide for the past 8 years and I am so ready to fulfill my dream of becoming an RN.... but I'm also a bit scared.
I have been done with my pre-reqs for 3 1/2 years and have just been taking one class a semester to stay in the "groove" of school, but now I'm concerned that it is going to be a major adjustment taking full classes again. Also, it's very unnerving having no idea what to expect!
I'm hoping to connect with some people that are in or have been in American River College's RN program and can give me a heads-up on what to expect! I look forward to any feedback/advice you can give me!
Thanks for reading!
