    Congrads! Do you know what section for NR 115 you signed up for? I have met a couple of students of "our" class on campus but no one in my section yet. I have a bio professor who is a pre-nursing advisor who has given me the inside track about what to expect. I hope this is accurate so don't hunt me down if it turns out to be wrong! Seems like all the 100 nursing students meet together on Tuesday/Thursday for lecture. So whoever is listed for lecture is not the person teaching it, they all teach it one time or another. Clinical is on Wed. or Fri. so whatever day is listed as your 7-5 day is your clinical even though the clinical is listed as TBD. Congrads again and I hope to see you in the fall!

    I am still waitlisted, but I am alternate number 8, so I am pretty hopeful about it all. I annoyed at having to wait until the last minute to register now though. I work full time, so it would have been nice to have a broad choice of class times and will now just have to settle for whatever is open still in the fall.

    I hope that it works out for you to be in the program. That would be stressful to not know until last minute what to register for. Are you going to register for other gen. ed. classes and drop them if you get a spot in the program? What are you going to go into if the nursing program spot doesn't open up?

    If a spot doesn't open up, I'll probably just take the GED and go to grad school for now. I have classmates who are in the nursing program now though that said it is 98% likely I will be in since they took over 20 alternates last year.

    So I was talking to some students tonight who are currently in the ADN program at Cooper and they said the program is having alot of problem, The NCLEX pass rates are dropping. I went to the Kentucky BON website and sure enough, the NCLEX pass rate for Cooper was 88% and a dismal 67% for Lawrenceburg. This scares me a little, I hope I can survive the program and pass the NCLEX. I keep hearing that some of the instructors are really incompetent and there is very poor communication in the department.

    Woah, 67% for Lawrenceburg?? I mean, it is a new program so I understand that the kinks must be worked out so maybe that is why. I really pray this program won't kill me before I graduate!
