    Yeah, sounds like you were working yourself to death!

    Did your wife end up taking that night job? It's nice to have a second income, but it's tough working all day and keeping kids all night. Well, at least my kids who seem to be able to survive on the smallest amount of sleep imaginable. LOL

    Class of 2006 here!

    I'm still in the process of completing prereqs for a BSN program. I should enter the nursing program in Fall of 2004! I'm not sure which school I'll be attending then, but I'm applying to about 5. See you guys around!

    So what classes are you guys taking this fall?

    Chem, Geography, Art appreciation and American Lit here. Not too thrilled about them in general, since I'm a bigger fan of science and math than this general ed/humanities stuff.

    All the BSN programs here are soooooooooooo impacted, that that is why everyone does the RN separate here in S. CA


    I should be class be class of 2006. After I take Physio this fall they HAVE to let me in Fall of '04. I have a BA in Sociology from 1985, but that won't help me as far as a BSN. So I will start the BSN to MSN when my kids get a bit older.
    I've got 2 kids, a husb, a dog and cat. I'm 41~~yes I know........OLD! hee hee

    Hi! I am 19 years old and I am a sophmore enrolled full time at my local CC working on my pre-reqs. Starting August 18 I will be taking A&P I, College Algebra, World Civ. II, Intro to Soc., and Developmental Psych. Now that I am actually typing it out it actually seems like a lot more work than it really is. At least I hope not

    Looks like there will be A LOT of us with big grins on our faces in 2006!

    I am also part of the class of 2006. I'll be starting my first nursing courses August 25. This will be my sophmore year of a BSN program. We had our orientation on the 8th, which made me so excited to start schoool I am about to burst!

    I am 31....married mother of three (2 boys age 12, and a daughter, 7)....don't work outside the home, thank the lord! (of course, since I don't work we can plan on being poor for three more years )

    My line-up for fall includes: Fundamentals of Nursing, Professional Role Development, Statistics, and Effective Oral Communication (I guess they don't want to scare us by calling that one what it really is...SPEECH)

    GOOD LUCK EVERYBODY!!!!!!!!!!

    Hopefully I will be in one of the three programs next fall. I am hoping to go to my current CC because it has the best CC program in the area. The other one is not as good. I am hoping to get my RN first (even though I want a BSN and a MSN) because the closest four year school that offers nursing is about an hour away and God knows how much further the clinicals will be. (I have two kids, a husband, and one car so the logistics of it would be awful) I would have to travel all the way up there for my junior year and then the senior year is at a local four year school about 30 minutes away. So I think it would be easiest on my family to get the RN and do the RN-BSN online or the four year college that is an hour away has the RN-BSN and they hold those classes at the college near me . Not to mention if I go for the RN I will only have to be a part time student because I have will have all the other classes finished, if I go for the BSN I will still have more electives to take. Unfortunately, it is majorly competitive here. The not so good CC I have a good shot at getting in next year. The one I want to go to has 400 applicants for 90 spots. They don't even consider your grades when they pick who gets the spots. This is the craziest thing. We have what is called the point system. Most of your points come from the college placement test. Possible 360 can be made on the test. Then any grade C or above gets 3 points, used to be A's were worth five pts and B's three and C's one but they didn't have the man power in the counseling center to tally up all those points. If you have a CNA cert. that gets you 10 points. Those first ninety people with the highest points get in. Last year a girl in my A&P class who barely got a C got into the nursing program while some of the A students didn't get in. Does this sound right to you guys? So I will have all the points I possibly can by the end of this semester. Hopefully it is enough. Really makes me mad that my grades are not even looked at though I almost have a 3.5. Arg! This year I am going full time taking classes that the CC I want to go to wants, and some for the other CC and making sure it will all count towards going to the four year school too. I am taking Microbiology, Psychology, A Study Skills class (just for the three points it will give me), Humanities (Myth in the Human Culture), and Sociology (Group Processes). So Iam just really hoping and kinda stressing about getting in next year. I have been waiting around for seven years now. First it was because the kids were small, then we couldn't afford it (not that we can afford my classes now HA HA), and last year I have been taking all the prereq's. I am sick of waiting. LOL! Anyone in the Asheville, NC area?

    Aww Dublin, you know they say you're only as old as you feel! There was a guy from another BBS that I "know" from So Cal and little me from the rural south never had really considered that despite the fact that there are more schools/opportunities in larger areas, there's also LOTS more competition!

    Yeah she's working at wal-mart at night now. Thats hard on me now cause i have to exclusively
    watch the kids.


    How's she liking the job? Do you have any family nearby that will be able to help once you get into classes again? I guess I just forget how blessed I am that I have such a supportive family, so nearby.


    I am also a 2006 hopeful!!! I am married with three sons from age 5-15!!! Less see I am just
    finishing up my prereqs now and start clinicals on May 25. Wow that's less than a week away!!!!


    A week away? Did you mean August 25th? Or did you mean a year away? What a houseful of boys it sounds like you have! No girls except for me here either! LOL

    I'm taking A&P I, Microbiology, Nutrition, Statistics, and Texas Govt. (17 hrs total)


    Sounds like you're gonna be busy!


    Hi! I am 19 years old and I am a sophmore enrolled full time at my local CC working on my pre-reqs. Starting August 18 I will be taking A&P I, College Algebra, World Civ. II, Intro to Soc., and Developmental Psych.


    I'm sure you'll do fine .. are you just in school full-time or do you have a job as well? Keep me posted if you find out/hear anything good/bad about any of the Mississippi BSN programs, would ya? Thanks!

    Looks like there will be A LOT of us with big grins on our faces in 2006! I am also part of the class of 2006. I'll be starting my first nursing courses August 25. This will
    be my sophmore year of a BSN program. We had our orientation on the 8th, which made me so

    I think we're all hoping so! Thanks Leesie!
    I hope this thread will keep going and we can keep each other posted on how things are going!

    I wish we started nursing classes sophomore year here, I'm so excited for 2004 to roll around that I can hardly wait!

    hat offers nursing is about an hour away and God knows how much further the clinicals will be


    This is something I'm worried about too.. I hate commuting, but I live an hour away from all the colleges in my area. Very frustrating, but I probably won't move once I get back into school full-time since I have such a supportive family in this area.

    Humanities (Myth in the Human Culture)


    This sounds like a really interesting class.

    Some of the community colleges around here use a similar point system, some don't seem to have any rhyme or reason to who they let into their program.. the BSN program I plan on applying to had 350 apps last year for 50 spots.. they based on ACT/GPA mainly.
