- Aug 8, '12 by SENSUALBLISSINFL@ luvtranscendsall i agree with you. someone here stated that "professors do not give a crap" about your life, that is just so not true. we were assigned an advisor in our school, that we had to report at least once every semester, some did not even bother with it, some like me, used that time to speak to someone and learn from her experiences, i made sure to keep up with her of my progress and she was very supportive when an issue came up with scheduling and classess. she always had an upbeat story to tell me, etc....
so to the o/p do not buy into it that professors do not care. i am not going to deceit you and tell you they are all nice; but some are very caring and very pro-student and then you can always come here to vent, to ask for advise, to share your wisdom and definitely to share your success.
again good luck and hugs.
ps... it helps to make yourself known to them....you will see them throughout your program and try to participate if you are able, in school activities, at least one.

- Aug 8, '12 by bredenfamHi its_meee,
I totally laughed at your post and also wanted to cry in agreement. I'm in somewhat of the same situation though luckily after a summer of selling off my personal things I was able to pay for the requirements to start the semester (background check, health check off, with no insurance btw, and everything to get my schedule to register). I have my first months worth of books, but kind of unprepared for the rest (since my nursing program is broken into 3 sections for the semester). Because my school is broken into 3 sections and financial aid is according to start date, I won't get the first half of my funds til the end of September. Ugh, stressed too! But here is what I found that helps. Though my hubby seems supportive he very much needs my attention and I take on more of that than I should. He is capable of so much more if I simply ask for help. I am guilty of thinking he's a mind reader sometimes and only speaking out when I'm about to break! Just be very honest with him in needing his support, because you're going to need it. I have a set chore chart for my kids that they know requires them to do at least 2 chores on school days and 4 on the weekends, this system was honestly a big relief to me and they were awesome about sticking to it, and as a reward for a weeks worth of chores we would do something fun that was important to them but not $$ for me. For my uniforms, I don't know who you need to use but Dove has a scholarship every semester for several schools that they donate one full uniform to students who apply. I got my other uniforms through a facebook group of ladies who just graduated and they were still in new condition. I have yet to start my required reading because I've been stressing about the financial aspect. But guess what?~! You're into a program that is going to bring you your dream job in 2 years, so for me it's totally worth it, just prepare and breathe! . Melissa
