Thanks for the responses Ladies.
About the Compass tests; I hadn't taken a test in quite some time and it freaked me out, lol. I took them and scored really low in the math, missed the writing (editing paragraphs and sentences) by 1point which originally put me into Fund. of Eng...UGH!! LOL, and I scored 84 in the reading. I re-took the writing a few weeks ago and made a 99 (yeah me...I was very pleased, since that gave me 20 points automatically), and got me into Eng I. I am planning to re-take the reading sometime soon so I can get my points up (an 84 only gives me 1pt). I am not as worried about the math points because the course description says math deficiencies don't have to be removed in order to graduate...we are only required to have Dosage Calc classes. Can you hear my sigh of relief? LOL. I am pretty determined to keep my GPA above 3.5, 4.0 is what I really want...I am just going to do my utmost to make as many points as I can.
I was planning to try to get into the ADN program next Fall, but as it looks with all the pre-reqs I will more than likely apply to the program for the Spring of '05, if I have all the points I need that is. I've also considered taking summer courses, if I can possibly manage it...I feel like I need to hurry, lol. The program guide says we only need 95pts to get into the program, more probably wouldn't hurt, eh?
Marilyn, I understand about the kids and trying not to kill yourself with classes. I have 4 dd's: ages 9, 4 1/2, almost 3yo, and almost 2yo. The youngest 2 are 11 1/2 mos apart. Anyhow, I understand the child/mommy dynamic and wish you and all the other Student/Moms out there the best of luck with your studies.
Good luck to you Oklahoma Nursing Students!
