    i will pay on Wednesday, we need a system on how to locate each other on that day!. I'm excited but when I read all of the comments I am a little worried. It seems that almost 1 out of 2 don't make it through the program. That's pretty scary. My issue is that I have a full time job but during down times I will study like I did for the prerequisite courses which I did well in. For those of you who are LPN's you definitely have an advantage and I'm curious if the LPN's are the ones who are doing well in the nursing program.

    Just study when you get the chance. You should do okay. Just try to start out strong and save any notes/highlighting you take for the mid terms and final.

    Being an LPN helped somewhat. I believe there were 3 LPNs (including myself) who started the program back in the fall, but I THINK I'm the only one left but I'm not 100% sure.

    Quick question, on the acceptance letter it says that they offer Nurs 111 and Math 085 NM in the summer, is Math 085 NM a nursing math class? I can't find the class.

    Another question, are we suppose to go to the counseling office first? to register, then go to orientation on wed to see who gets a chance to actually take the summer class-then finalize the registration for the class?

    Anyone know of any nursing store to buy nursing supplies from?

    Not sure about the math 085. I never had to take any math classes.

    You'll register and pick your classes at orientation. It's based on a lottery system (you'll pick key chains with numbers on them). So you might not get to take Nurs 111 in the summer. It depends on the number you pick which will determine the order you're allowed to register. If your number is too high the section/class you want might not be available. There will be A LOT of people at the orientation.

    I got my uniforms and some supplies from Work Wear Uniforms in country club hills. It's off kedzie and 167th. Same area as that Walmart just a bit to the west of it.
