    Lyndaa I am trying to see if I can PM you, but can not figure out how to. What do you mean by self paced writing course? How do you find the class to be? I don't think I wrote a single paper in nursing school (exam heavy) so I am a bit nervous. Was the Bioethics exam through Excelsior, they told me the exam would cost 350. That is a lot of money to risk, although 95.00 is doable. How much studying did you put into the exam? Did you purchase the practice exam through them, and how much did that cost? Did you speak to advisors to help you plan this schedule?
    Your mailbox is full......couldn't reply to your last PM.

    We have a facebook page up for Excelsior BSN students, just do a search and I'll add anyone on here that wants to be on the FB page as well.

    I don't have a Facebook account. Have you made it to the capstone yet? I'm embarking on the unthinkable for the fall semester. I'm aiming for the January capstone. I guess I've set my sights kinda high.

    I got financial aid AUDITED. My Hubby doesn't have one of his w2's from last year, so I can't get FA. I don't know what to do. He had 2 jobs and I only have 1 of his w2s. So I'm doing straighterline until we get that figured out.

    Can't you ask his employer for a copy?

    My husband wont do it. I keep asking, but by the time he gets home from work its like 8pm Indiana time. I'm sick of asking. I'm putting my foot down. If he doesn't call tomorrow I'm gonna chew his butt out! I've never had to in the past, but dang it, I need my financial aid.

    I am starting Capstone on August 26th =) Final requirement and final class, I'm thrilled! =) A total of 19 months start to finish for me for the BSN is enough! =) Had I taken the Community health nursing exam instead I would be finished next month, but i needed the GPA boosters of taking courses...I applied to South University for my FNP/MSN to start in April next year...so far i'm "provisionally" accepted but they won't fully look at everything until I complete this course in December.
