    I'm hoping to get into the ADN program this fall. I take the NET in a few weeks. I hear it's not too bad. I've pulled out all of my old college alregba books to practice for the math portion. I've been working as a med. tech. at a clinic for the last two months. I LOVE it. The docs and nurses are fantastic...more like mentors than employers.

    Are you in school now?

    Tex, I took the HOBET test a few weeks ago and it's supposed to be almost exactly the same as the NET. there was some very basic algebra on it (like solve for x and that sort of thing) but it also had a lot of percentages and fractions and converting percents to fractions and decimals. This part made me sweat more than any other part of the test. I'm not bad at math, I just usually do something stupid like not having enough decimal places or adding when I should have subtracted. It's really not a hard test, I think I just freaked myself out too much on it.

    TexMedic~I took this semester off but am starting again May 17th for the summer semester. I am very excited to be going back. However I guess I am kinda new to all this stuff. What test is that you are taking? When should it be taken? I would love all the info I could get. Thanks so much in advance. Hope to hear from you soon.

    How long did it take to get your NET grade? I am preparing to take the test in a couple of weeks and was just curious.

    I have even started pre-req's yet...I am starting this summer, not sure how long it will take but hoping to apply to the Nursing Program Fall 2006. I plan to work really hard this summer, Fall, Spring, Summer, etc....All while being a working mother of two girls 14 and almost 12. I am so determined though so I know I can do this.

    The way my R.N. program works is as follows: first, you submit an application with all your pre-req's listed. If they like your grades, then you're invited to take the NET exam. If they like your score, then you're called for an interview and you have to submit a letter to the dean titled "Why I want to be a nurse". Then, they pick. So far, I've made the first cut, and am waiting to take the test in two weeks. If all goes well, I'll start this Fall. I can't wait!!!!!

    By the way, what did you do professionally before your career interest in nursing?

    TexMedic~WOW you are almost there. Congrats. I hate the whole 2 yr waiting period. Some people are so eager to start their career but the waiting list is so long. But well worth it! LOL Well, I do credit card customer service (call center work). I hate it. It is just awful. What is that you do?
