    Thanks so much Commuter. I'm anxiously awaiting your news. I will do the same thing you did go back and review my weak subjects (there are many I am finding out by taking these practice tests) I have been to San Antonio and Houston. It's always hard moving to a new place and feeling comfortable. I was an Air Force wife for 17 years so we moved alot. I understand what you're going through. I wish you the best. California is getting way too crowded. I was born in Orange and grew up in Torrance/Redondo Beach area. My daughter who is an RN student wants to get out of here, but she has another year and a half of school. So we're stuck here for now! Take care and hope you are getting settled in. Hope you get your letter soon---------------------

    Hi again Oldernursing student,
    I will finish next Dec. I'm excited to finally be starting classes on what I want to do! There are 30 in these classes, compared to 60 at one on 15th street. Good luck on chemistry! I found it fun! Let me know if you want suggestions for instructors for the sciences, but I guess your 21 yrs old know's just as much. As far as bridging over to the RN prog. I'm still stuck with taking physiology. Many commute so pass it but you know how it is to commute! Plus I'm getting old...47 this year!
    Good luck on your NCLEX! I'm sure you'll do fine!

    Thank you for the tips. I will remember them when I take my NCLEX. I took the practice test in November after our Ist semester of school and did poorly. I am so afraid of the testing process. Thanks for the help.:angel2:

    The first step in doing well on the NCLEX is to get rid of the fear. Once you lose the testing anxiety, you will be able to do more things than you ever knew possible!

    Good luck. I'm sure you'll pass on the first try.

    Hi Baylay, you will do fine and that is a more manageable class. We were lucky and only had 15 students, had alot of extra help from the nursing instructors. I'm right with you (I'm 48) so I know that commuting is really hard at this age. Thanks for the encouragement, you also have mine. If you have any questions while you're in the program, let me know maybe I can help since I just came through it. I finished with an A (4.0) but I studied 24/7 and had no life for 13 months. I was also taking a class at AVC. I still need the four core classes to get into the RN program. Just focus on your nursing program (LVN) right now it is enough. Talk to you later. Leaving for Vegas this morning. Happy New Year. Older Nursing Student in Palmdale, CA
