    Oh great! That is really good to know! Never give up on your dreams, we want this too bad for something not to pull through! I had to learn the hard way about being more positive... So, I will continue to spread that to anyone who feels defeated!

    So this class we are about to take used to be in the program curriculum? Wow, I had no idea. So we are actually going to learn how to properly feed our patients... I am really excited about this now! Now I see why people are saying can jump up and bite you in the butt. Yay! I need a good challenge to take my mind off the next 2 months waiting for this letter.

    Lisa- you are still planning on continuing if you get the acceptance letter right? Despite the financial issues? I hope so!

    Oh ok, I heard Erica Greene was good, but very easy. I don't want anyone so easy that I don't learn the material because that class is going to hunt us throughout the program. I heard Grecco and Quattlebaum were very good as well. I took College Algebra and General Psychology back in 2004 and they wont take the classes because the said I have to change over to the RN program and take those pre-reqs, they dont mix pre-reqs...that sucks!

    I would get a second opinion on that for sure because my classes were take while in the RN program (psych and algebra) and they took my grades (both As) I don't know if you were informed correctly about that...

    Did you take them at a different school and they credit won't transfer or what is the reasoning behind not allowing you to use those grades?!

    Yes Callie, some schools still have it in the program. My friend goes to Columbus Tech and this is her first semester in the program and she is taking Diet and Nutrition and Pharmacology. And the girl whos book I have went to Chatt Tech and she took this class in the program, so it is exciting to know this is more of a nursing class. We will learn about special diets for infants, women that are pregnant/breast feeding, diabetic patients, patients w/ kidney dieseases, terminally ill patients and so on. How to incorporate their meals in our care plans and how to correctly make a meal plan. We will learn about the type of diets Dieticians and Speech Therapist set for elderly patients like a liquid only diet, mechanical soft diet, pureed diet and so on. We will also learn about when patients are on certain meds, what foods and drinks they cannot have while on this particular medication. It may be interesting after all. I hope Lisa continues with the program as well!

    Yes, I took all my classes at Savannah State and they took English 1101 and my Cpu class. Med Term was the first class I took at Chattahoochee last year and this will be my second. I made a B in College Algebra and a A in Psych. I will get a second opinion because I thought that sounded crazy.

    I really wish you were able to join the program with us, if we get in. You have great passion and knowledge for this profession. Did you learn it all from being a CNA?!

    Mine were transferred in from Baker College in Michigan... and they had no problem transferring them in... maybe the semester switch will help with the transfer! I always have found Marietta campus to be the most helpful, just an FYI.

    Yes, I love everything about nursing. My best friend is a RN and she does all of the care planning at her job, so she was very informative about this course. I work in a Rehab Center and we learn the different types of diets when we are passing out trays and recording the percentage of what the patients eat. We also have to know what supplements certain patients are required to take, so working as a cna will give me a little advantage because a lot of things will be familiar to me. Also, I don't know if you all ever go on youtube and watch the videos from current Nursing Students, but I love to. They give you so much information to help with the things they wished someone had told them! If you get a chance, check out NurseNacole, Nurse Brown Skin, and my favorite: Nurse Stephen, he has a really great story. They will give you motivation and help you through your journey. I may not be able to be with you all through the program, but we can always keep in contact!

    Thanks Callie, I will wait until after the beginning of the semester and check on those classes with someone else. I went to advisement and asked her about the classes, I will contact Admissions this time.
