    You guys are so cute! Your enthusiasm is refreshing! I love it when the students coming onto the floor are as excited as some of you!

    Welcome! And don't forget to leave time for other things! (like yourselves!)

    I'm right with you there !
    OMG, this summer I designated myself as the "ice" person for my sons baseball games.. if someone got hurt.. the "ice" queen to the rescue..lol.. Guess I can't do too much harm with ICE..lol. Actually the ice came in handy for the 90+ degree heat too.

    I bought all my books online and I have been reading a little almost every day between refilling somebody's sippy cup, and getting him some goldfish, and changing his diaper, and picking up crushed goldfish and tickling him on the floor until he pukes up all those goldfish!

    Can't wait for school to start so I can get away from all the goldfish for a few hours.

    I am so NOT obsessed with nursing school! I was the first time around (PN school) I guess I have lots on my plate this time and that may be why I'm not. Maybe it is because I KNOW I'll be forced to give up the remote control now


    Ahh well. I already have high blood pressure lately so I don't think my little heart could take the excitement anyway!:chuckle

    I have had my books for the fall for about a month now. I took two different 5 week summer courses so I am studying much of the time. If I am not studying I am watching the shows on the discovery health channel so I can learn more about diseases and the jobs nurses do. I even had an instructor tell me I overstudy! I think I confuse people sometimes too. I can't settle for knowing just the basic stuff to pass tests. I have to look deeper into it and find out more. I can't wait to start the actual nursing classes so i can be on the floor and have clinical training as well as book knowledge.

    I'm the same way. I dig a bit deeper than most always asking why "X" is true, not just willing to accept it as fact. S'okay, you're just a fellow knowledge freak. My goal in life is to stuff as much in my brain as possible. Although I admit I'm not the D-Health freak you are but I was close in the last month before starting vet tech school There was a show with this dorky vet I used to watch rabidly! I wish they'd had "Emergency Vets" on back then. Nowadays I occasionally kick "Emergency Vets" on but, I do 99% of what they show so, its too much like work.

    Yea!!!!!!!!! I am not the only one!!!! My friend and co-workers laugh at me all the time. I am so obsessed with school. I LOVE school.( wow I admitted it ) I am having so much fun. I have even e-mailed my professors for fall asking for the syll. I have allready scammed all my friends notes for A&P and started making note cards to study. I was so excited to buy school supplys I went a little crazy.... got way to many spiral notebooks.......hehe oh well , just another addiction to add to the walmart one :-) I never did well in high school and now that I have a 4.0 in collage it really makes me excited to learn. Guess its all in my head... but thats ok I LOVE SCHOOL ( well at least till finals) :-)

    I'm glad there are other nursing students as enthusiastic as I am. I took a summer class for 5 weeks and have to wait until Aug.19 to start my 2nd year nursing classes, I can't wait, I really have missed school. I'm 45 years old and returned to school after having graduated from high school in 1975, most of the rest of my class weren't even born then.LOL.:-) I love reading my books and subscribe to several nursing magazines.

    Hi Doodle, it's nice to know there are other non-traditional students out there ! Good Luck in your 2nd year of nursing.

    I haven't bought my books for Fall yet - probably because I was in Summer school and it's not over until Friday, August 2nd. I don't want to look at another book until August 19th - when school starts! Oh, and I haven't bought them yet because they are going to cost $700 bucks - Just too shocking for the bank account right now!
