    I can breathe a slight sigh of relief from today and now start the new stress over practicing my INTERVIEW QUESTIONS!!! I feel with all the hurdles thus far I can't mess up in interview!

    I'll be wearing a suit I won't be able to do any get togethers since I've got to get back home to my son, but looking forward to seeing some red pens/markers!

    I'll be interviewing at 12, and I think I'll stick with simple black dress pants/blouse/blazer combo. I'm so glad that you got everything resolved, akwildone! I won't be able to do lunch either after the interview. But I do like the red pen idea very much
    So, they invited 100 people and have 60 seats? That's actually a lot higher than I thought.
    Good luck to all!

    Just by blogging with you all on here, I feel like we are going to make a pretty amazing cohort.
    I know what you mean, Nursowiczka2b, I find myself checking this site more than my email or other social sites. We are all going to get along just fine! It's going to be an exciting year!

    It really feels good to know that there are people out there who feel as passionate about nursing as I do. I often hear from nurses that even though nursing program is a lot of hard work, it is also a time of your life when you meet friends for life.

    Hope everyone is doing well on this rainy day. (Well at least here in Orlando)

    Yup! Oh I can't wait! I can't wait!
    I think I am looking forward to really making some good friends. I totally missed out on that in my previous college experiences (I worked constantly, didn't reach out to others). It'll be a little harder this time around with kiddo, but that just means I get to host all of the study groups!

    Hey there! I got an interview at 12. I have a little bit of a drive so I wanted to give myself plenty of time to get ready and prep. I'm happy for everyone on this thread! It's a little overwhelming thinking of 100 people interviewing, but I think we are overachievers even by just using this site! I never found out how they are scoring all the applicants. I wish I knew the breakdown. I'm assuming the interview is just as heavily weighted as test scores... I will definitely be wearing dress pants, blouse, and blazer combo. My main trouble now is finding the perfect balance between sounding scripted and just being genuine.

    Lol
    That's great. I don't have kids, YET, but I am ready for them. Been ready. Lol
    I realize though that the best time to start a family will be definitely after the program.
    That's why I admire you, all the parents on here who are signing up for this roller coaster.
    It's really great, and I know you'll succeed.

    Practice and speak from your heart. I have the same problem. I sat with my husband for four hours on Sunday to practice speaking. He was a panelist and I was on the other side. What I realized was that the more clever and educated I was trying to sound the more scripted it came out. I got frustrated and just started speaking about what I really felt ,and man did that come out natural and genuine.
    The way I look at it now is this: I know why I'll be sitting in that room, I know how hard I worked for it, and most importantly I know why I want to be a nurse.
    So look deep into your heart and just go with it.
    They know we will be nervous, and I honestly think that what they really want to hear from us is that we know what we are signing up for. They want team players. They already know that we are smart. After all it landed us an interview.

    You can borrow mine any day you need a kid-fix. She's even potty trained and will commonly dress as a princess-cowgirl-star wars character. Actually, I was thinking of starting a parents group once we get started (and anyone else who wants to join) to maybe trade babysitting hours or have study groups that are child friendly.

    Does anyone else here have kid(s)? Would you be interested in having child-friendly study groups? Or, would people join study groups if they were kid-friendly? To me, kid friendly means at a house, where kiddo is allowed to watch a movie in the other room or play with others while the adults study together at the dining room table. Not studying at Chuck-E-Cheese.

    Lmao
    I just might take you up on that offer. Lol
    Kid- friendly study group sounds good. I'm sure others would appreciate this idea.
    Well, lets get into the program first and then we'll get really creative about everything.

    I guess I'm an incurable optimist.
