    Thank you for all of the information! I was wondering if anyone has had to work while in the nursing program? It sounds soo hectic with just school alone, much less working. I am not eligible for grants due to a previous degree, but I am hoping to get enough in loans to cover tuition and some of my living expenses. My current position allows me to work overnight and I have enough downtime to study or do homework for about half of my shift. I am really nervous about trying to continue this schedule plus school though. Any thoughts or advice?

    I am currently working full time at the hospital, but am planning on moving to part time once nursing starts. I'm really nervous about trying to manage a full time nursing program with part time work and a two year old. So, we'll see how long the work lasts. I also am not eligible for any grants because of a previous degree. I am not taking out any more loans, I hope, as I still owe almost all of my ones from my previous degree (I graduated a year ago). My parents will be covering my tuition for the first semester, but after reading some other posts in this thread, there are a lot of other out of pocket expenses. Sigh..

    I received my Bloomington PN acceptance letter about 2 1/2 weeks ago!! I am very excited and also nervous about starting the program! I plan on transitioning to RN immediately after completing the PN. I currently work full time at the hospital but plan on switching to part time (although I'm not sure how long I will last with tons of studying + trying to work + taking care of a toddler).

    My letter did not say a single thing about taking a CPR class, getting up to date on immunizations, etc. My job at the hospital already has me certified in CPR through Red Cross, thankfully. Our meeting for the program is not until JULY 15!! Soo long to wait it feels like for any more information!

    Any other Bloomington students here?!

    WOW! You already received your PN acceptance that long ago? I am STILL waiting on mine for East Central region AND Richmond. I amgoing crazy wondering when my orientation will be and what requirements I need to get done etc...I don't even know which one to pick because ECR includes Anderson, Muncie and New Castle. UGH
    Has ANYONE received their letter from either of these regions???

    Yes, I received my letter from Bloomington on May 24th. I couldn't believe how fast they were. It really took some weight off my shoulders. I also applied to Terre Haute, but haven't received a letter. It's not a big deal though as Bloomington was where I wanted, since I live there. Good luck!

    Someone commented that their letter didn't say anything about the extra expenses such as CPR, ATI, immunizations, etc. You should be getting all that info during the orientation for your specific campus.

    As for working while attending school, would think that would be difficult. It's not impossible though. I feel fortunate that I did not have to be a mom, work, and go to school all at the same time (lots of awesome family help with this) but there were others in my class that had different situations. Several people would head to work after classes, others only worked on the weekend. I think in the end it comes down to doing what you know you have to do and that may mean working while going to school. You just sort of learn how to do it and stick to it until you finish. At least that's what the guys and gals that I am in class with are doing.

    I was accepted to Indy and Lafayette ASN programs! I will be going to Lafayette as my husband was just accepted to Purdue! Yay! I can't wait to meet everyone on the 23rd. I am so excited and scared about the next two years. I have 5 children and will work part time on the weekends, so I must be crazy to think I can do this, but I CAN do this and so can everyone else. LOL. Hopefully, we can get a good study group together and help each other out. See you soon!

    Hey everyone! I was also accepted at Lafayette, and I CANNOT WAIT TO START!!!! I was wondering, do you guys think it would be ok if my husband comes along with me on the 23rd for the orientation? I just want him to get a feel for what's in store for the next ~2 years LOL!

    Yay! orientation tommorow! I can't wait. I know it won't be anything spectacular, but atleast I will hopefully have my class schedule and all of the information I need for school. The fact that I will be going to nursing school will finally seem real!

    @ szewc2nurse - congrats on getting in to lafayette! i completely understand wanting to bring your husband along. the next few years will effect both of you. but, i don't know what the rules are as far as that goes. i would call your campus and see if it's even allowed. deb dye over in lafayette is pretty understanding and she tries to make things as easy as possible for students, so she may be ok with him coming. good luck!

    I bet the room where orientation will be, will only be big enough for those expected to be there. Even if your husband could squeeze in, having him come to orientation with you might seem inappropriate to some, almost as if you brought your mom. See what I mean?

    I am looking forward to meeting all of you at orientation on Tuesday (well the Indy class anyway) At first I was not accepted into the program. Based on the lowest score I had seen on the threads, I was off by about a point and a half. I got a call yesterday that a few spots opened up and I got one of them! I am shocked and thrilled as you can imagine. I freaked out lol...can't wait to start this journey with you all..looking forward to making some great, lifelong friendships and becoming Casey, RN!!!!!!
