    CONGRATULATIONS!

    I start school Monday at Rio Hondo College. I am so excited! Did the time go by fast for you.

    What advice can you give me? I mean what do you wish someone would have told you that would have made school easier or at least given you a little insight on what you were in for?

    NurseJacqpott, congrats on getting into Rio Hondo College! Time did and didn't go fast for me. I bridged into the ADN program as an LVN so the journey was a long one. However, my RN schooling seemed to fly by really fast. I think all of the the nights studying, staying up late, waking up early for 7AM clinicals, and having absolutely no social life made it go by so fast. I lived and breathed nursing school the whole time.

    Advice which I would give to you are the following...

    1. Stay determined and focused. Remember why you wanted to be in the program in the first place. You will have good days and you will have REALLY REALLY REALLY bad days. You will want to give up but, if you are focused and determined, it will make the program a little bit tolerable.

    2. It's okay to say "No" for any family or friend functions (birthdays, weddings, Christmas, New Year's, etc). While in nursing school just study. You will have time to socialize later.

    3. Always be prepared. Have all your supplies ready (black pens, calculator, drug book, stethoscope, name badge, penlight, scantron, etc) It will make your life much easier in nursing school.

    That's all the advice I have. Feel free to PM me if you have any other questions. I'd be glad to help you out. Good luck!
