    Hi HDM,
    I'm sorry for your loss. I know it's a lot to handle right now, but try to take it easy and don't forget to take care of yourself. 13 credits is a lot in conjunction with nursing classes, are there any that you can drop? The first semester is the hardest, believe me, it does get somewhat easier. Goodluck to you and remember, we're all here to support each other. You're not alone.

    Hi. Thank you so much for your reply! You are right in that 13 credits is a lot. 4 credits is anatomy and physiology which I have to take. 1 credit is nursing math which is required first semester and the next 8 are fundamentals of nursing, part of which is skills. So theres nothing I can drop this semester. The next 4 semesters will be between 7 and 9 semesters exept for summer which will be just 3 or 4 for microbiology.

    Since I am on an educational leave this semester it should go smoother, however I haven't read the material or really studied much from last week so I better get busy here.

    Hi!!

    Wow! I haven't read all the posts (it would prolly take me a few million hours to read 5 years' worth!) most people must have graduated by now!!

    My name is Anne-Marie, I am from Australia, and it seems we do things differently over here! I am married with three girls 18month old, 4 and 8.

    I am at Uni doing B.Nursing (as that is the only way to get your qualification) Three years (2 semesters per year), and we only get to have patient contact for a certain period of time. THis is my first year and I have done semester one and semester 2 will be my first prac/field placement and I am sooo excited but real nervous!!

    So, I will be around here and look forward to reading all about your journies!!:spin:

    Hi - I'm new here too!
    Just started in on my first lecture courses at the new university. I already have a B.A. but I fell in love with helping expectant moms with their deliveries. So I started out as a volunteer birth doula and I loooooved it. I want to get my B.S.N. and then eventually work on getting my Masters in Nursing so that I can be a midwife. I can't wait!

    Probably gonna need a lot of advice from all of you experienced people. Hope ya'll don't mind.

    Never saw this before lol. My name is Larry and I am from Pennsylvania. I am 23 years old and I graduated in June 2007. I am taking boards on September 27, 2007.
    I am single and nursing is my first career (not counting my store clerk time period from age 17-22). I have my ADN right now, but I am going to get my BSN with a minor in Biochemistry. My biggest goal is to become a Nurse Anesthetist, and eventually a DNp.

    Hi, I'm still in the pre req stage, start anatomy and physiology tomorrow and I'm pretty nervous about it. :S My goal is to take pre reqs for both an ADN and a BSN, apply for both programs and go wherever I'm accepted.

    I'm going back to school after an almost 18 year break, because it took me a while to decide this is really what I want to do. I see pretty much everyone here is already in a program of some kind, I am hoping that I can get into one, too.

    Nice to meet everyone.
