Class of 2006 - page 15

Hey yall! Just wondering if there are any of us out there still working on pre-reqs - hopeful nursing graduates of 2006? Roll call! :) I'm the 26yo mama of two boys (5yrs and 18mos). I... Read More

    Gosh manna, I'm gonna miss you! There are a lot of nursing jobs out there for day shifts too. Esp. surgery centers, OP care, home care etc. Maybe I am missing the problem. The nursing program is all day time isn't it? Good luck whatever you do. Follow your passion. Heather :kiss
    Awwww, thanks Heather! I just saw this post, guess I should have checked this thread earlier.

    If I can get into the nursing program here (well, it's actually a 60-mile commute), I'll go beginning in fall 2004.... I decided to go on and apply here rather than move with my husband... this program is only 4 semesters, whereas if I applied where my husband is moving to it would take me 6 semesters... any less time I have to spend out of work/in school fulltime the better - it's going to be a struggle to afford to go at all, as it is! LOL

    Hey manna...glad to see you're sticking around.

    As for me...I've signed up for A&P III (my last A&P class - yay!) and Lifespan Development Psych.

    well manna, i am glad you're gonna stick around too! though i'm sure your hubby's gonna miss ya like crazy, eh? i've been doing the commute thing this year, and the only way i can get through it is with books on tape! i've lately been going through the stephanie plum series, very fun.

    i received my rejection letter today! ok, i knew it was coming, but it's still not pleasant to read :imbar i know that i'll be starting next fall. it is a good thing too, as i need to line up alot of stuff.

    i'll be taking pharmocology i and medication calculations. just for the fun of it! :chuckle

    I'm still here.... still pondering. I actually sent in my application for the BSN program today. I've decided not to move cross-state with my husband. Tough decision, but for now I can't afford to give up my job, plus I have too great a family support system in place here in case I do go to school... for nursing or something else.

    Now I just have five more pre-reqs to get out of the way, and hopefully if I get into this BSN program (same one I had originally planned on applying to), I'll be able to afford to go... if I don't get in, I suppose I'll take that as a sign. LOL

    Have yall signed up for spring classes yet?

    So far my schedule is looking like this... Gen Chem I w/lab, American Lit I and Intro to Philosophy all online, then Fitness Walking and Horseback Riding (my two activity courses LOL) on M/W afternoons. I've still got my full-time job too, and will be something of a single mom with my husband gone... think I'm aiming a bit too high? LOL
    We're in the same boat! My husband is moving NEXT WEEK to Chattanooga to start his new job and I am staying behind and moving back in w/ my parents (lord let the nightmares begin ) I am going to miss him like crazy but when it came down to it, I was miserable at the thought of dropping out of school. Anyway...

    I'm glad that you are going to try and stay in school. That's the best gift you can give yourself. If you didn't try, you would end up kicking yourself down the road (that's what I keep saying, hopefully it's true!)

    Good luck on your finals!

    Hi! I will be starting a CNA training program in January. It's on Sat. 8-5 and clinicals are on sundays. I am also taking a and p 1 and a math course during the week AND traing as a volunteer for hospice. Whew! That does seem like alot, but I am 26 and childless (well, except for my pug and cat !) I know it can be done. I hope to start my actual nursing program this fall. It's a 2 year hospital diploma program. Then I hope to graduate in 2006. But it probably won't be till later now that I think of it because I'm starting to think I should get the a and p's and pharm. etc. out of the way first at cc and THEN go into nursing school. What does everyone else think? Did anyone else go the hospital diploma route? louisepug

    how is a hospital diploma program different from a cc diploma? i did all my pre-reqs separate, cuz everyone says that once you're in nursing school, it's a total killer, just to juggle that. i'll start in the fall (the actual nursing program) and i've done all i can ahead. next sem. i'm taking pharm and medication calculations, so that i have a better chance of getting through the first sem. which everyone says is the toughest where i'm going. good luck to you!! heather

    Hi Everyone,

    I am sending you a happy holiday greeting. I am presently taking my prerequisites for a BSN program. I should be graduating with my BSN in May 2006 but I think it will be closer to 2008 because I am only going parttime while working parttime. I think after the Spring 2004 semester I will increase my course load. Good luck to
    all of you 2006 graduautes.

    Aren't toddlers fun?
    I'm about to pull my hair out with my almost-2yo and his tantrums lately! LOL

    I applied to the school that's about 60 miles from where I live - my husband and I will just have to work our schedules around each other and spend time together when we can. His work schedule is so weird that I don't see him much even now while he's living here, so not much need to move over there with him.

    Anyway, the school I'm applying to is MUW in Columbus, MS.

    Where are you from, Jemommy?

    I'll keep my fingers crossed. Can you take out a loan? Ask a family member? Does your school not have like a deferred-payment plan where you pay your tuition in 3 payments or something like that?

    Good luck..........

    Any chance of holiday money coming in? I'm going to buy my books with any Christmas money I might get.

    I feel your pain. I was there myself until I got an unexpected bonus from work. *whew* Paid my tuition ($337) just yesterday.

    So how did everyone fair this term? I ended up on the dean's list again (yay), but didn't get a perfect gpa. I got a B in A&P II.

    I'm going to email the director of the program shortly.

    I was under the impression I could take the NLN entrance exam in January and meet their March deadline, but I may have made an oversight and be screwed a year...

    I'll update everyone when I find out. If it did happen its my own fault, I have too much other stuff going on.

    My work commitment has tripled since startingn this process.. uggh. Crappy timing.
