I've been accepted!!

  1. I recieved my letter of acceptance to an RN program today (YAY!) I start in January of 06. I have a couple of questions for the current students:

    1) Do you work? How many hours?

    2) How do you prioritize?

    I'm asking these questions because I failed after one semester of an LPN program last fall and I don't want to make the same mistake again. The only difference this time, I will be working where the last time I didn't. I just want to find out how everybody else does it without going crazy so I can get some ideas.

    Thanks!

    Congrats.

    I would work the minimum amount you need to get the bills paid.

    I don't know about prioritizing, just don't get behind whatever you do. Don't procrastinate. Good luck!

    Congrats on your accomplishment!!!

    Prioritizing is learned based on the situations and experiences you encounter. You will be doing lots of prioritizing in school. It's the start of your training.

    Good luck!!!

    Congrats to you all!!

    You can do it, and just don't get behind. Think of the thousands before you that have made it and know that you can too.

    Congrats!!!! You start really soon, I bet you are excited!!!

    I don't work but I still prioritize..what I did that worked well for me was sit down once a week and go through all my syllabi and mark down what is due each week, then I made my own schedule for each day and put what I wanted to get accomplished that day, ie. Monday-read a chapter of med surg, start researching for my pharm paper and do questions in the study guide for health assessment...I also had a calender that I printed offline in my binder that I could write when everthing was due, that way I would know what big things were coming up....Its all about being organized and keeping up...whatever you do, dont get behind!!!


    Gooooooddd luck and congrats again
    Good luck to all of you guys who are still waiting too...oohh the suspense

    I write every reading assignment, paper and exam in my planner at the beginning of the semester. I work about 20 hours a week, and on the days I don't work I try to get ahead on my reading. I also offered to work every Friday, which my co-workers don't mind at all This is ideal for me because I don't really feel like studying by the end of the week.

    Congratulations and good luck!
