    The CPR/firstaid thing is easy to get done. You got the checklist of certified cpr teachers? Call Ken Bambico or something. He comes to your house and does 1:1 training, it's pretty quick too. The physical is up to you.

    Yes, I was an alternate. I got a call a week before the December meeting. It all varies, really. I know one of my classmates who got into the program as an alternate got called a couple weeks before the semester started. If you really think you did that good, chances are you will most likely get in so I wouldn't worry too much.

    If you don't mind what was your GPA/NLN?

    Dayam you all you people getting into the program now got it hard. When I got accepted way back in fall of '03 my gpa was only 3.4 (cumalative for prereqs and co reqs). and i had a NLN of 134. Also i had classmates who only had a gpa of 2.8 or so. Good luck to you all, and be ready for the long road of studying and BS! careplans (something that you will never ever use when you become a rn.

    Haha, you were smart. You got in before the huge influx of new nursing students. Did you ever go back and get your BSN? I'm contemplating on doing it, but I figure the more time I wait, the harder it'll be to find a job. So I'm thinking just concentrating on getting a job first and going to school part time.

    Actually i did go back for my bsn, however, like an idiot i never finished it, i am like 2 classes and 1 clinical shy. To be honest i really do not see the incentive of having a bsn in hawaii, unless you want to be a manager or a supervisor (both position you willn ot be eligible for until many years of working) there are also adn to msn programs online only, which one can pursue after some hospital experience is gained. The UH route is guaranteed exceptance however another 11/2 - two more years of school, depending if you test out of there ethics and pathophysiology. good luck with KCC, i thought that the second semester was the toughest, after that everything goes smoothly. Finding a job migght be a hard thing, unless your up for ltc or home care.

    They have some online thing at UH Hilo I was looking into, only takes about a year. And yeah, the Medsurg2 classes were by far the hardest. Donna is a hard lecturer, but her clinicals are awesome. Just finished my first OB/Peds rotation and going into psych next semester, so that should be interesting.

    Honestly, at this point I'll take whatever I can get to work as an RN and get experience. Although I'd like to work at one of the main hospitals I'm perfectly fine gutting it out for a couple years in a LTC, I mean, that is where we started off.
