    Hello everyone;

    I'm fairly young (19) and just starting my junior year in a BSN program in Texas. I start clinicals in a couple weeks, so wish me luck!

    Hello all. My name is Adrienne, I'm 20 years old and a pre-nursing student at Cal State San Marcos. I was at a community college in L.A. for three years because it was so crowded it was impossible to get an Anatomy class before my second year. Anyway, I finally applied only to get my application thrown out due to the Chemistry requirements being different between L.A. and everywhere else (UGH). So, here I am in HOPEFULLY my last year as a pre-nursing student, finishing up chemistry and taking soc./anthro./and bio. classes designed to be taken when you're in the program to lighten the load once I get there. Almost there....wish me luck! Glad to be a part of this community.:spin:

    Hi everyone!

    My name is Natasha, I'm 20 years old and going to be starting my first year of nursing school in less than a month! Woohoo! Like many of you I've been obsessing most of the summer about anything and everything to do with nursing....staying up at all hours browsing through nursing websites, studying anatomy and physiology, practicing drug math (math is my weak spot ), watching Grey's Anatomy....:chuckle

    I'm sure this forum will be a great help during my time in nursing school and beyond. It's so nice to see other people really are going through the same excitement and anxiety as I am, and I love reading about everyone's opinions and experiences. I hope to share in many interesting discussions with all of you soon!

    Also, good luck to all nursing students beginning or continuing nursing school this fall!

    Hi I'm Abena and I will be starting an ADN program at the end of August. I am 25 years old, single with no children. I am scared to death about starting school and hope I can keep up with the pace and pressure.

    Hello! I'm Tiffany 27, mother of 3 bad little ones. I just found out a week ago Thursday I was accepted into an LPN program I wasn't expecting to hear from until September. They had someone drop at the at the last minute and I was next on the list. Most of the LPN programs in this area have a long waiting list. I was really happy at first because I was accepted and especially since I don't have to wait until January to start. So I started that next day after the Director called. I was a little nervous because everyone else had already been there 4 days. Labs are my number one fear because we are practicing on each other, its different when you are working with a client. In a couple of weeks we are giving each other bed baths.....Buck naked and everything....this seems strange to me because everyone I that I have talked to that went to a different school has said they didn't have to do this....they just did the motions "Annie" or eachother. Did anyone here attend a school that made them do this?

    Buck Naked??? :imbar Seriously?
    We just did baths this week.... no stripping. We simply rolled up sleeves and pants, washed arms, hand, legs and feet... while adding some range of motion exercises.

    I've heard previous classes in our program (years ago) used to have to wear bathingsuits, and bath each other. I know it would not have gone over very well had we to get naked, especially with one big burly guy in our class.

    Tomorrow is our first day of clinicals. WooHoo!

    Woohoo! Start nursing classes on the 29th of August. Due to graduate in May of 2009. Seems so far away.

    I am one of those 35 year old guys that is making a huge career change. I am married with three school age boys. I am lucky enough to have military benefits to pay for school...and a wife that can pay the rent. We are all excited about starting nursing school. My wife is excited about the Mustang convertible I have promised HER as MY graduation gift...lol

    After taking 15-18 credit hour loads to fit an entire AA in just over a year...the 10 credit load for the first semester of nursing school looks like a nice load. I am sure those 10 credits are going to be a large load.

    Good luck to all that are starting this fall. Hope to see everyone at the finish line.
