    Ya im still looking into daycare options...we wont be able to afford our current childcare so im still researching. But im faithfull it will all work out! My husband income is not enough to cover all expenses but he has options to work another job if need be. We just moved here last sept! I love it. Were off winchester near chapparel.

    It will work out and once we're done with nursing, it'll all be worth it. Have you try Babysitters, Nannies and Nanny Services - Sittercity Babysitting I will create an account there once I know for sure if I'm accepted in Fall. I should be okay as far as childcare, I registered my daughter to one of the BASES (before and after school) in school where she'll be going for kindergarten. My only problem is when I get stuck in clinicals or she gets sick that I have to pick her up early. I don't really like to bother anyone for a favor to pick up my daughter, but I'll probably have to. My husband is deployed all the time and when he comes back (next month), his schedule is not even guarantee since he is sea duty and stationed in San Diego (32nd). I have family and friends that actually offered to pick up my daughter just in case, so I guess I'll have to accept the offer if I want everything to work out.

    I'm right by Pechanga Casino...are any of your kids in school yet?

    Hi Allie86,

    How are you? Guess what? I got an e-mail on Thursday asking me if I would like to start this Fall. Looks like a space became available so I accepted it. Do you know if you're still going for fall? Have you started the background check yet? I'm getting ready to do it since I just got a go signal to go for it yesterday. I was wondering which package did you pick.

    Thanks again...

    Awesome! I did pick the $65 one and I finished it not too long ago. When did you pick up the chain of custody form? How exciting! Where did you order the books? I will start buying next week since I still have a class that I need to finish this weekend. I'll check my pm.

    hi cheyenne_ivey, nursing school is been crazy to say the least. it's very difficult but doable if you manage your time wisely. you are constantly doing something and it will feel like 24 hr a day is not enough to do all the things you need to do. although it is hectic you still have to find time to spend with your family to keep your sanity. i know your gonna hate tuesday night search night but embrace it and learn as much as you can. utilize your instructor too. they are there to help you out keep them a call or text them if need be. instructor ------ was on my speed dial list. do not be intimidated by them they are very helpful with students. follow directions even if that meant doing silly things like putting a your number on every single page on every paper you have to turn in... do it!!! also, do not be late... this is a big big deal to the program. just last week we lost a student in our group because she was late on more than one occasion and shes been warn that if she was ever late again they will remove her from the program and late she was. guess what they really did kick her out even if was 3 more weeks left in the semester.

    Please take those advice seriously also do not hesistate to ask for help from the semester ahead of you because they will help you a great deal. The second semesters student have been wonderful to us. We will be doing the same thing to you guys if you need help as well. As you guys could probably tell during the orientation the panel that spoke to you were like a family. Make sure that you depend and help each other out. If anyone understands you better it will be your classmates because they are also going through the same thing you are going through. Really this is the time where you would realize that there really is no I in team. If you dont work well with others this will only isolate you from your group and perhaps you won't make it. The first two people we lost in the program just kept to themselves and guess what they were the first one gone.

    Let me know if you have any questions. I'm willing to help you out.
