Class of 2006 - page 22

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

    ... yes, God willing, I will be the class of 2006, too. Finishing pre-reqs over the summer (8 credits anat & phys) then hopefully starting school spring 2005. At this point I'm only looking at accelerated programs so I will graduate sometime in 2006. Suddenly the future just got very close!

    I've been working in grants management for a large university. I'm in my mid <cough> 30s, single, no kids. I'm still working while doing pre-reqs but will be in the last part of nursing school full-time. Not sure how I feel about doing one of the programs that immediately goes into an MSN but there's a lot of opportunity to do that where I live. My interests areas are palliative care, PACU, pain mgmt, rehabilitative clinics. I know the BSN will serve me well, not sure about the FNP or ANP at this point. So much will get clarified once I get into the trenches. Unless of course I have some kind of wig out and wind up in occupational therapy school instead and graduate in 2007. Meh.

    Good luck, Agent! I'm sure you'll do just fine.

    Welcome to the boards, Javagirl! I'll be finishing my non-nursing classes/pre-reqs this summer too. I hope I get into the program sooner than later.

    Good luck on your exam, Agent. I recently learned that the ADN program that I'm trying to get into has doubled it's enrollment last fall and this spring. This is mainly because of the severe nursing shortage in Nev. Originally, they only accepted 64 students each semester. Now it looks like they will be accepting 124 students each semester. From what I was told, almost everyone who applied this year got in. Yea! Now if I can just get through A&P II.

    It's killing me waiting on an acceptance/rejection letter here! When I spoke to my advisor in January, she said letters should go out early-mid February. Last time I emailed her (end of January) she said they'd go out the 2nd week of March.

    I was at a scholars day (for transfer students) at the college last weekend and left my name and phone no. with another member of the nursing faculty (they had a booth set up) and she said she'd have her give me a call and let me know the status of my application, but I haven't heard from her. I guess all she could tell me would be that the letter will be in the mail in a week or two, but I'd still like to know! Ugh!

    Going crazy here, I have to be the world's most impatient person!

    Thanks Sprtbikegrl.

    Still waiting... I jokingly told everyone that I hoped I would get two big fat letters from school tomorrow (for my birthday, would be a great present LOL): an acceptance to the nursing program, and a big scholarship offer.

    Agent - wishing you lots of luck on your entrance exam tomorrow!

    Hello Class of 2006,
    I hope everyone is surviving school right now...this semester is going by so fast...April 26th is the last day for me. I have decided to register for an LPN program in my area...just in case both of the CC's that I applied to try to screw me over again.... . My mother is the one who told me about the LPN program...it's free for residence in Essex County, it's a one year program...from Sept. 2004 to Sept. 2005....did I mention that it's FREE!!! . The books, uniforms, everything are included. So just to have a back up plan...I think that this is the best choice. If I am accepted into one of the R.N. programs then I'll just forfeit my spot in the LPN program...the only thing that I'll be losing is a $25.00 registration fee.

    Oh my gosh, Fatima!!!! You are so fortunate to have a FREE LPN program up in
    North Jersey. I am from South Jersey and there is no such animal down here. Before
    deciding to go ASN, I looked into the LPN programs and the waiting lists are ridiculous.
    A few of the programs wouldn't even take student loans. Quite a few of the LPN programs
    are set up to accept more Workfare/Welfare recipients. Which, IMHO, is a great idea, but
    dang, it would have been nice to save some slots for other people.

    Sorry for the rant! Really Fatima, get your application in ASAP.

    Best of luck, class of 2006!!!
