    Thank you to all the people trying to gather schedule info. I'm going to just wait until registration before I worry about childcare. I'm sure things will fall into place. Being a nurse is always going to be a crazy schedule anyway. We'll work weird hours, holidays, be called in, etc........may as well start getting used to it now, right? LOL! Gstar, we'll be okay. We'll figure it out. The unknown is anxiety inducing. Especially if you don't have spousal or family support. *hugs* Please PM me if you want to talk or vent.

    Hopefull2011 ~ I hope you'll keep posting tips. They are helpful. I think our group coming in has been hit with so much negativity we are just drained. I even had a teacher tell me not to even bother with an associates as I won't be employable anywhere but a doctor's office. And she works for JJC. I was all WTFudge?? I think we're all drained and Gstar misunderstood your intention. And I agree, the secretaries really don't know and are most likely exhausted from all the calls. Whenever I really want to know something I email Luna. And only if it's an extremely important issue.

    We all have to remember a lot gets lost in translation with the type written word. You both seem like super awesome ladies and I'm very confident if this conversation were in person it would have happened so differently.

    Okay, so hopefully you ladies won't be upset with me for being so presumptuous in my assessment. *hides behind couch*
    You really hit this spot on. Ever since I have attended JJC, all I have ever heard is NEGATIVE NEGATIVE NEGATIVE. If I listened to a quarter of it, I would have never even pursued this goal. This is part of the reason why I even started this thread to begin with, because I'm sick of hearing it and came on here to vent and to see if anyone else was in the same boat as me.

    It's obvious that nursing will not be all fairytales and roses - I'm just anxious to know what to expect as I'm sure we all are. Having to wait until Mid-November is a killer on my nerves and then getting told wrong information over and over again by E-V-E-R-Y-O-N-E is just ridiculous. I don't believe anyone anymore, I've lost faith in people being able to either tell the truth or at least give valid information.

    Thank you PurplePRN for coming on and well, kind of being mediator. You are able to see this from both sides which well, I'm just not capable of doing at the moment because I AM drained and exhausted from all this worrying and stressing the hell out.

    Hi ALL

    I posted a few times earlier....I'm in the day program as well...

    And I hear and feel your frustrations. I am very nervous as well & need to schedule daycare

    Sorry I didn't look back. Congratulations! Scheduling daycare certainly will be a biggie for all of us. Let's all be positive and be thankful for our blessings and family and for a new beginning.

    Yes, def grateful.

    On the other hand, in general there has been a lot of "hazy" direction since the start of my journey getting in. So I hear the frustration indeed.

    I thought it would be such a relief getting in. Boy, was I wrong. I was happy for a minute and remembered so much warnings that I started getting nervous. Esp with the "new 80% rule".
    Would anyone like to meet for coffee or something to talk?

    Strongfaith.......I think that's a great idea! Maybe after registration? So we can compare schedules and such?

    I know for myself, I have two exams and a paper to write over the next few weeks. Meeting for coffee prob wouldn't be possible for me. I'm already feeling a bit overwhelmed. If you guys meet up sooner I'll probably have to catch you next time.
