    Yes, def grateful. &lt;br&gt;<br>
    &lt;br&gt;<br>
    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. &lt;br&gt;<br>
    &lt;br&gt;<br>
    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". &lt;br&gt;<br>
    Would anyone like to meet for coffee or something to talk?

    What classes are you taking now?

    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.

    I am still trying to learn how to navigate around this sight, so if anyone private messages me it might take a bit to reply

    And Zamrn, that is fine. We can meet up after registration with you as well.
    Good luck with your paperwork...

    I can't wait to go get more information schedules and all. I already made a Dr appointment for my physical and I'm nervous to start but can't wait.

    Welcome to Nursing!

    *GASP*!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I imagined myself in a big group of girls screaming and jumping up and down in unison when I got the Phone call this morning!!

    On October 10th, I posted this update " Hoping to get an "Acceptance" email within the next 2 weeks, preferably (sp) next week.. Only positive thoughts on this subject.. I am WILLING my acceptance in this program by imagining I am definitely getting accepted lol.. seriously... I Am! "

    Could it be.. even through all the turmoil, distress, depression.. that one Belief in myself, that one Positive thought sent out into the world.. worked its magic.. and came back to me??

    Hello everyone, I'm currently a 3rd semester evening student at JJC and would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have. Congratulations to all that made it! Just keep your eyes on the prize, remember how much you want to be a nurse and how hard you worked to get here and in 4 semesters, you will be there! I think that JJC prepares you, yes there are things about the program that frustrate a lot of people, me included, but that's life! Work hard, READ (for pete's sake, READ) and just worry about how you are doing, not everyone else. There will always be people that do better on everything, but passing, is passing, you all end up at the same finish line. It's the same prize for first as it is for last and no one knows who gets what place anyway! Feel free to ask any questions and enjoy the few months before school starts!

    Thank you for your advice! How many hours of studying besides school is required to do well in the program? I believe classes run approximately for 20 hours a week, right?
