Hi all! My name is Lauren Cedor and I'm the Traditional Class Rep for the semester that just started this fall. Just under 6 months ago, I was in the same spot as all of you who were just accepted, so I understand both the excitement and the feeling of being overwhelmed that you are having right now.
To those who weren't accepted this time - don't get discouraged - get involved and apply again. Come to the general membership meetings for the Student Nurses Association and/or events. You'll get a chance to meet people who are already in the program and ask questions. Also, even as a pre-nursing student, you can run for positions on the KSU SNA board and even the GANS board. Having a position on either board really couldn't hurt your chances of getting in next time!
To those who were accepted - Congrats! Get excited, get involved, and don't stress about what has to be done before you start. Once everyone has accepted their position in the program, you'll receive an email packed full of instructions on when your orientation is and what you need to get done. You'll have plenty of time for that stuff - so take this time to get to know the people you'll be in classes with (through here and then on facebook once we set up your page).
If you want to start meeting people in the program now - the KSU SNA has created a team for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5k Walk/Run. This would be a great chance to get your first KSU SNA shirt and join the team. I'm sure everyone will be happy to talk while we walk
