    I start my cores Monday -- Clinicals on Mon and Tues at the unheard of for me early time of 0655, and lecture Friday at a not-much-better time of 0800. I have ALL other classes DONE for my degree, so I can just concentrate on the cores.

    One bright spot though, we had a class over summer which was taught by my clinical instructor for this semester and the class began at 0700 and she was late and hadn't had her caffeine fix so at least I hope she will be a tiny bit sympathetic at the 0655 class. I am glad I just got to meet her under these circumstances because I know she is not perfect now!

    did you take pharmacology this summer, if so, how was it?

    I guess I am ready for Monday! I have finished the pre-recs and will be taking the first nursing class, clinical and pharmacology. Hard to believe it's happening after 2 years of pre-recs!

    I, like Vsummer1, am not looking forward to the early classes!

    Early in the summer I would get these panicky feelings when I thought of school...they started again yesterday after I dropped some papers by the school.

    This school in California doesn't require a separate pharmacology class like my previous school did. I asked about that, and was told not to worry, we would learn it!

    How was it in Arizona? HARD. Phamacology was hard. You can get an A in it though.

    I hope an "A" in pharm is possible. I am one of those obsessed students. I have a 4.0 so far and would like to keep it through nursing school. I went to the graduation for this years class and no one graduated with a 4.0! I don't know why it bothers me so much....maybe low self esteem? I am in an RN program, but I had a cousin that made it through the LPN program here...I did not think he was very bright, and HE MADE IT...so if I don't, I will feel dumb...if that make's sense.

    Thanks for you wishes everyone! God knows I need it... This is my 3rd attempt at college and I'm tired of looking like the perpetual student without a degree to my family and friends. This morning I went to church to pray and ask God that this will hopefully be my last attempt and that I will graduate from school with at least a BSN...
