I love being from KY and all but this morning it was four degrees. My anatomy class was frigid, some fool had the air turned on over the weekend and the department chair left a window open back on Friday when it was 70 degrees... Read More

    I have an aunt in Pike Co. She likes it except for my cousin who is a total menace. Kentucky is ok, snow flurries today.
    Pikeville College is a bit costly, I recomend Big Sandy Community and Technical College. In 1996 the state dept. of education consolidated all of the community and technical colleges into the Kentucky Community and Technical College System which makes things far cheaper. I took out some Federal Stafford Loans. Your choices are Big Sandy Community and Technical College has the ADN RN, Pikeville College has the ADN RN as well, the University of Virginia Wise Campus is in the region they offer a BSN program.
    I am satisfied with my college expirience.

    Thanks for replying and for the info. I did bring up the tech college website and was looking at their nursing program. They don't require as many pre reqs as my cc here in Michigan. Where do you plan on working at when your done? I wrote to Pikeville Hospital and they responded and said they start out new grad nurses at 17 something an hour. That is a bit lower than up here in the north country, but the cost of housing and ect. is a bit lower in Pike Co., that is also a reason we want to move out of this place. The cheapest you can rent a house is 800 a month and that is usually a dump. The average cost is 1200 and up a month. Apartments around here are a bit cheaper but the neighbors are not the kind I want to live by. At least in my little neck of the woods. It is mostly subsidized housing around here, with that brings alot of wrif wraf. We are hoping to move down there soon. Good luck with your schooling, how many more semesters do you have to go?

    Today it was 72 degrees--nice but short. It April it will be in the upper 80's. In May it will be in the upper 90's to lower 100's. In the summer months it easily reaches 110 degrees :angryfire with around 80-100% humitiy. It feels like you stepped into a sauna. I absoultely hate, hate, hate it here. I can't wait to leave. Why anyone would choose to stay here is totally beyond my comprehension.

    Well here in Michigan we have long, cold winters. It doesnt really warm here until June or July, then it is short lived. It gets cold again in October. Last summer I don't think we had a single summer night that was warmer than the 50's or 60's. It is absolutely freezing up here right now. A balmy 26 degrees, this morning on my way out to class it was a whole 6 degrees. So I guess we are at opposite sides of the thermometer. I want to move where it is warmer and easier on the bones. This cold weather is getting to me and I have lived here many, many years. I don't think I could hack the heat in Texas either though and you all get those tornados and hurricanes sometimes. Good luck on your search for a better climate.
