    I took two short term courses (5 Weeks each) this summer. The first on started in late may and ended in early July (AP 2). I got an A. The second started July 8th and will end August 9th (Micro). I currently have an A in it too. I hope I can keep it. My orientation to nursing school is all day on August 15th and my classes start August 17th. That does not leave me much time off. That is oka though, it will keep my study habits sharp

    It's about 3 1/2 weeks before my first class starts! I'm reviewing Anatomy since I have to take it in the fall(took it too long ago to get credit for it : (. ) Also spending time with my dad who has terminal lung cancer. I love him so much and it doesn't look like he has much longer. His illness helped to inspire me to go back and finish the nursing career that I had started in my 20s. I'm also reading Chicken Soup for the Nurse's Soul to keep my spirits up.

    I just finished up A & P 1 with an "A" on Thursday. I don't go back until 3 Sept, when I have College Algebra on Monday evenings and Gen'l Psychology on Saturdays 9 am to 2 pm (only for 8 wks); then on to A & P 11 the 2nd 8 wks on Tues/Thurs evenings 5:30 pm to 10:20 pm (ugh! that will be a long 8 wks!). But once I've got these prereqs done, I can apply for the nursing program as soon as my grades are posted in December!

    I'm still working full time, and plan to until I get into the nursing program, so the evening/weekend route is the only one I can take. While I'm out of classes for August, I plan on spending time with the family, going to the movies, playing with our new puppy , and just generally relaxing until the fun begins again in September.

    Hope the rest of you get a little bit of a "summer vacation" before your fall classes start!

    Well, I just got the results of my summer semester courses:

    Hist 160= A
    Nursing 206=A
    Computer 202=A

    * I am shocked and amazed because I had to turn in every paper in the APA format and I hated trying to fix the settings. It was murder. I never thought I would make a C let alone A's!!!!!! Hope everyone else was successful too!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I feel so guilty....I have been off since May 1st and return to classes August 27th. This is my first summer off. I usually take a class or 2 during the summer to take some of the pressure off during the regular semester.
    Best wishes to all, enjoy what is left, and good luck with classes!!
