    Congrats! I have orientation on 1/19 and my first day will be the 14th! I am also reviewing dosage calculation.. We need 95 or above to pass.
    Sheesh. And I thought 90 was scary!! Good luck. Doesn't seem too bad .. Thankful I took college alg&trig this summer though

    In my program you have to have 100% on dosage calc to pass. You get 3 chances, and you get booted from the program if you can't pass in those three times. We have a new one each semester, and this last semester one of my classmates actually failed from missing one of them on the third test, she was and still is devestated. Thank god I have never missed one, but the anxiety is high on test days.

    I am excited to start back on Jan 14, and I will be finished with my classes on March 24th and graduate May 10th. I am so ready to get this done with. I'm taking Peds/Med-Surg III, and not looking forward to Peds at all.

    Good luck to all of you new students

    My LPN to RN program starts January 22nd. I have two orientations next week. I'm taking my kids to Disney World this weekend to spend time with them before I start. I know how hectic it gets when school is in session. It's hard to juggle family and school. My boyfriend is also starting his 2nd year of his ADN so at least we are both in similar situations and know what the other is going through. We also both work full time. The benefits will be worth it.

    I start my ADN clinicals on the 16th! I also just started a new full time job, so I'm trying to enjoy this last bit of peace and freedom before my life is consumed with nursing school! Spending every available minute with my husband

    But I really can't wait! I'm definitely obsessing over supplies and organizing!

    For me it did. I started prereqs fall 2011 finished December 2012... I applied and was accepted to a program in 10days (interview and all) (contingent upon successful completion of micro) They really wanted me, I was super excited ! The most daunting part was getting thru micro and scared I wouldn't make it thru but I did ! Ordered my uniform and start orientation in a week! Yay!!

    My husband and I were just saying that the time flew by. I remember in the Summer Semester of 2011 when I was taking my first pre-req (Chem...ughhh!) that May 2013 was so far away. I swear I blinked my eyes and now graduation is only 4 months away!

    But if this will be anything like the last semester of LPN school...the time just dragged by! I think this will seem faster because we have two classes that we take in the Spring semester. We take one class the 1st half of the semester and the other the 2nd half. We did the same in the Fall semester and the classes flew by. I think because we had so many assignments on top of studying for quizzes/tests as well as clinical paperwork etc that time just seemed to fly.
