    Thank you so very much, you are a lifesaver!!! Yes I haven't even attempted the math class yet and I start Jan. 21 I would have started the beinging of Jan. but my school gave us a winter break that starts this Sunday:Ball::Santa1::Santa3:!!! So I finally get two full weeks off, no school or HW!!! I am taking all my classes online and the way my schedule is set up I take two classes every 9 weeks so I have been in school non-stop since Feb. 07" and i am so ready for a little break!!! The way this schedule works for is that i get my AA degree in about 22 months instead of taking me probably 3 years. This is why my math class scares me because it's online but my husband says he will help me and my school has a regular campus near my Apartment and they offer tutoring in math so that makes me feel a llittle bit better. But if I need help I will definitley PM you or post it here ok, thank you so very much I really and truly appreciate all of your support and help!!! Sorry about the long post, keep me posted ok!!!
    Hey Missy.. How r u? I am fine. Well, I don't know about being a lifesaver, considering I have not even saved a life yet... heck, I dont even know what color lifesaver I am! hehehehehe! Myabe purple; that's my favorite color. No need to apologize; your post was not that long. I've typed longer. Well, I do wish you good luck in all your classes. So you say that your taking 2 classes per every 9 weeks? That great! What will you get your AA degree in??? Well, I find it very sweet of your husband to support you in your math. That's also nice that you have access to tutoring. Glad to hear that you have winter break next Sunday. I have been off from school since last friday. It's nice just to sit and relax. You may have no HW, but I still do. I have my Nursing HW to do and plus I have to prepare for midterms. Well you take care and sorry for the lloonngg post. keep me posted.

    As an Health Administrator I can work in a Hospital, doctor's office or any other medical facility-admitting in a hospital is what I want until I start nursing school. I am hoping that this will help me get aquainted with the medical field plus I am also hoping I can use my AA degree towards getting ADN degree!!! My AA degree is not what I really want to do, I was in such a rush to start school that I started a school and degree I really do not want like my husband said I should have researched better and He said that he would have help to pay for a private vocational nursing school:smackingf!!! but now I am stuck so I figured I would finish this and he said he would still help pay for nursing but through a community college instead because we want to buy a house. I am still going to be an LVN then an RN I will start the LVN program as soon as I am accepted and once I finish the LVN program and pass the NCLEX-PN-I hope then I will go back to my CC and take their RN program. Sorry about the long post!!! I know I am doing backwards but there is nothing I can do to change it now it will just take me a little longer to start the LVN program. I wish you a very Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year:Santa1::Reindeer::Ball:!!! And yes I was very fortunate to be able to get my kids everything they wanted this year for Christmas!!!:Present1::Present1::Present1:I know I cannot believe it's Christmas Eve and there is only a few hours till Christmas, my kids cannot wait!!!:Reindeer::Ball::Snowman1:

    Hello, Missy. Well, I do hope you get a job working as a health administrator. This will indeed give you a chance to experience the "nursing" life in a way. I'm sorry to hear the getting your AA degree was not thae plan; but now that you found your calling, I say go for it! I'm glad to hear that your husband is supporting you through all this. And, I'm pretty sure it's gong to get tougher when you start your nursing because you have a study, study, study all day long. I wish you the best of luck with that. Remember that I'm in an LPN progarm and if you need any help once you get accepted into the LVN program, I'll be glad to help you. Hopefully, we'll pass the NCLEX-PN together! The idea of attending a community college for your nursing is not a bad idea. It's cheaper on the wallet. I really hope you get in the LVN program. Well you enjoy your Christmas and have a Happy New Year. keep me posted!

    You're welcome Missy. and it's no problem helping u. Isn't that what nurses are 4, they help educate people? Well, yes, once you get into the progarm which will be in the fall of 2008, right, then we could study together. My school hasn't given me an exact date of when we'll be taking the NCLEX-PN, but I think it'll be in December of next year. I'm soo happy for you that you finally found your passion, Nursing! It's a very great and rewarding career. Also, if I need any hep with anything I'll be sure to post it or PM you. Well, take care ad keep me posted.
