    Congrats on starting your jorney. I just completed my first semester of the ADN Program. My dosage calculation test was also a 90% passmark but so long as you know your metric conversion table you should be okay. Its a challenging course but I made it with a fulltime job and a family. Just read ahead as much as you can, read read, read!! Good luck to you!!

    I just spoke with maria at Fin. Aid. she said I will be awarded fin. aid tomorrow when she gets back the verification form from me (she is faxing it tonight). So on Thursday when we register, I will have an award letter then.

    My orientation was last night and it went well. We went over who all of the staff were and how we would use them as resources. We went over financial aid briefly and how each of us will meet separately if we haven't already; how to access the school portal and how important it is that we check it on a daily basis; what records we will need such as physicals, shot records, urine 10 panel, etc; we had our pictures taken for ID badges; tried on uniforms so we would know what sizes we will need and can get those ordered. They gave us all a free t-shirt and pens along with a folder from the college with all of our paperwork and information we will need in it. It was informative and I know how to get ahold of anyone of the staff now

    Now I feel frantic to get everything remaining done. I need a flu shot, my shot records, my physical (which I had completed this morning), my urine 10 panel, and my CPR needs renewed.
