    Hi everyone

    I am getting very excited! I'm registering for my last pre-req class and filling out my nursing school application. If all goes well, I will complete Micro this next semester and start nursing school in the fall. I've slowly taken my pre-reqs while waiting for my youngest son to get into school full time, so it seems like submitting my application was a day that would never get here! Thanks for letting me share my excitement! Good luck to you all.

    My father used to say Mother's Day wasn't in May, it was the first day of school.

    Have fun in nursing school.

    I agree!!!! I've definitely decided since I became a Mom that mothers had to have invented the idea of going to school in the first place

    Brandy, I don't know why I like Research so much. I have always been interested in Research ever since I was in junior high school and I had my first paper to do. I like exploring issues, reading about the issue, looking for things. I am a curious person who likes to know more.

    As far as christianity my school requires 3 semesters of christianity and 2 semesters of philosophy. I will have semesters of philsophy out of the way in December and then I will have two semesters of the christianity left to do. I alread took christianity 1 last semester.

    Well, I'm taking prereq's too. One more semester, with any luck I'll get in Fall 2002 (ours is a lottery system). Spring I'm taking a phlebotomy course, hoping to get a job in a hospital lab which would pay for nursing school, we'll see. Also 2nd semester A & P, Sociology (which I'm taking online), and pharmacology (also online). I've found these online classes are great. I'm able to fit more classes in since I can get online at 10pm at night without having to drag my ass to campus after work every night. THe phlebotomy class is only 9 classes long, then a 5 week advanced class, followed by an externship. I'm most excited about this one!
    Good luck to all and keep up the good work!

    Good luck in your classes!

    just wondering--phys. ed? Christianity? ecology of healthcare?
    are these electives or core nsg courses? (if they are somehow core courses, damn, my school is really missing some stuff, lol)

    hey pkmom? i've taken med micro and it was a tough class, but i enjoyed it (am i gonna get stoned for admitting such a character defect? lol)
    i ended up getting a 9 in the class (this is the top of our marking system...translates to anything over a 90% average) and i think the key to doing well in the class is just spending LOTS of time pre-reading and then LOTS of time post-reading and LOTS of time doing consistent, cummulative review. i did find it really useful though to make LOTS of little cue cards to study and review from (helps corral those nasty, prone to wandering pathogens and anitmicrobals, lol)

    and a big congrats to brady!

    Hey Seven your question about Christianity being a core or elective. Well I am the one who said I took christianity it is a graduationg requirement. See I go to attend a dual program. I attend a nursing program that combined with a jesuit university back in 1980. My nursing program used to be a diploma nursing program until 1980 they combined with a jesuit university and became a Bachelor's in science nursing program. My nursing program is very, very rare because there are not very many actual nursing programs that are combined with jesuit unviersities. There use to be more than what there are today but Jesuit universities are private schools and private universities are much, much more expensive then a public university. There is a public unviersity right across the street from me that would be about six thousand dollars cheaper per year but I choose a private school because of better attention because the class sizes are much, much smaller than a public school. I did not want to just be some number in my General Ed classes. Some people don't mind and that is fine but I don't want to be just number 101
