I haven't been here in ages (probably a year)

  1. I had to put a hold on going to nursing school until I could find a part time program. My sister who was going to watch my children went to work full time so I had to put it on hold. I finally found a part time program and will be admitted to their January 2004 class. It stinks having to wait that long, but I have to retake my A&P classes because they are too old to transfer so I have things to do to keep me busy over the next year. I hope I am welcome here even though I haven't started the actual nursing classes. I have to take the ACT too. I am nervous about that. I feel so old now and I never took it in highschool. I have a few gen ed classes to keep me busy while waiting to. Any ideas on other things I can do to be preparing while I wait. Oh and if anyone does remember me dh and I are expecting our last baby in April 03.

    Welcome back Teresa! I think there are quite a few students on this board working on their pre-reqs. I wish I had found this board sooner, there are so many great people here! Congrats on the latest addition to your family!

    Hi Teresa! I just joined recently, but I just wanted to say that I'm also taking my pre-reqs now. There seem to be quite a few here who are. I'm hoping to start a BSN program next year.

    Good luck with your classes!!

    What they said, and congo rats on the upcoming arrival!
    I think I read in another post that this is number 5 for you? Awesome!

    I hear ya on the A&P thing...I got a waiver for mine since it has been 5 years and SIX MONTHS since I took A&P II (the cutoff was 5 years, so they fudged the retake rule for me).

    There are a lot of us here in the same boat as you - part-time, pre-req's, kids, etc. Welcome back!

    Congratulations and welcome back!!! I'm fairly new here myself(working on prereq's), and have found that the people here are wonderful and welcome all...even those who are just considering nursing as a career.
