    Hello,

    I officially started some of my nursing classes this summer but the program is suppose to be for fall 2002. This class (Graduating 2004) is apart of a new pilot program that the university is experimenting with. We are taking a summer of clinical skills labs with cooresponding assessment classes. We are practicing every thing on dummies and then we will be entering the hospitals in the fall. The university hopes that this will give us more practice and make us better prepared once we enter the hospital.

    Congrats to all of you who have been accepted into a program and I wish all other students luck as well.

    We also have the option to take two classes this summer before the 1st clinical experience in August (Fall 2002).
    I have until 5-29 to make up my mind if I am going to take them or not. They are Health Assessment and Basic Pharmacology.

    My plans are to work all summer and decrease my working hours this Fall.

    Much success to you!

    I just found out that I've been accepted to the program starting Fall '02. I'm really excited. I'm taking 3 prereqs right now. Sociology, Lifespan Developmental Psych and Organic/Bio Chemistry w/lab....I will be soooooo proud of myself when this semester is over and I haven't gone looney!!!

    Whenever I got unsure about my direction or thought I just couldn't do it, I too walked through the nursing section of the bookstore and looked at everything and reclaimed my passion for it.

    I still have to take Microbiology and Lab this summer. I would have had everything done (including histories and art, etc...) by the end of this semester, but I went through a divorce and had to withdraw last semester. That freaked me out because if I couldn't get into my classes this semester I would have been bumped from the program!

    I'm just not looking forward to having to take history and such during clinicals. I would have preferred to focus solely on the nursing. But, I can't really complain. I'm in!

    Congratulations to you and to every one!

    I am hoping to start back in the fall, but it all depends on $$ and where my husband and I are at with the mortgage.

    Wish me luck, its been a few years. I'm going to have to do a LOT of prereqs with math and science to catch up, not sure if nursing is the way I am going to go... Going to try my best.

    Hi. I HOPE to start in the fall, but if not then I will start in the Spring. I started pre-reqs in the Fall of 2000, but I still need Micro, Com and Psy. Good Luck to everyone!

    I applied this spring semester, but I am currently in pathophysiology(Summer 1). This is the the last course I have to complete before my application will be considered. I hope to be informed in July if I am accepted or not.

    I had orientation today. I've completed the physical exam and vaccines, had my picture taken (gross!!!) for the ID badge, and (gulp) taken stock of book prices for first semester required books! I'm ready to go!!! School starts Aug. 19 for me.
    I am starting an internship in the laboratory as a phlebotomist and will receive a phlebotomy tech certification in July so I can work on-call during nursing school. This will be good because I can flex my hours as-needed.
    This summer I'm teaching 9th Grade literature and taking Sociology 1A (yech), and intro to clinical skills. Fall I'm taking Ethics of Biotechnology and Interpreting ECGs in addition to my nursing classes. It'll be interesting!! The first hurdle for me is a pass/fail math test given the 3rd week of school which we must get 90% on to pass. You get 3 chances and if you don't pass, you're out. Scarey! I think I'll start brushing up my dosage calculations NOW!!!
    Good luck and congrats to all!! I hope to be talking much more w/ you as we get started in first semester!
