Orientation Date: January 22nd
Start Date: January 22nd
School Attending: Sacramento City College (part-time program)
Degree Seeking: ADN
School History: Completed my pre-req's last spring (most schools require all prereqs listed on the transcripts which results in a "dead" semester).
Personal Info: I'm married with a 7 year old and a 3 year old. I'm a bit anxious as I've stayed home with both of my kids since my first was a year old. Since I'm doing a part-time (evening & weekends) program, I won't need to use daycare but it will still be a big adjustment to them for mom to be gone every other weekend.
Anything else you want to share: I feel the same way as Emily - I feel very good about academics but extremely nervous about clinical skills. I've been volunteering though and that has helped calm my nerves a little.
How are you preparing?: I am reading "Test Success" by Barbara Vitale right now - great book! I also have been studying dosage calcs and medical terminology
. But mostly I am enjoying the holidays with my family as it is the first one in a couple years that I haven't been in school and it will probably be the last one for a very long time where I won't be either in school or working.
