I'm going to Middle Georgia Technical College this summer for their 1.5 year LPN Program. I am very excited, yet very nervous at the same time! My school has been on quarters for a very long time, and they are now transitioning to semesters for the fall. I am attending my last quarter this summer. It will also be my FIRST LPN-related coursework as well. I was previously going for teaching, but only did two quarters of that, before I decided Nursing was truly where I needed to be.
With all of that being said, our last quarter coming up is just going to be 5 weeks. We're going to be learning in 5 weeks, what we would in 10 weeks. I'm going to be taking Fundamentals of English I and General Mathematics for those weeks. I'm not TOO worried about those, as much as what's coming up after.
August 23rd will be my first semester! I'm going to be taking Psychology and Anatomy and Physiology, which is where my nervousness sorta comes in! I did really good in my Anatomy class in High School, I just hope my mind hasn't become too mushy. I've got to get my GPA up. I currently have a 2.83, but my advisor advised me to maintain all A's to stand out for the program after my PSB Exam, which I also have to take this coming semester!
After that, once I get into the official part of the LPN Program, I'm going to be going full-time 7-3 on Mon-Fri - I'm currently working 32hr/weekly, but feel I'm going to be putting quite a bit on myself with 40 hours of school and 32 of work. I'm definitely wanting to focus on my schooling. I'm just hoping my workplace can cut me down to maybe 4-hour days or only 3 days a week.
Mainly, I'm just looking for words of wisdom from those who have passed this part of the program. Any words of advisement? Anything would be helpful at this point. I'm very anxious and excited to start my semester! :redpinkhe
My first step...I have a little tiny problem with needles, but I just gave my grandma her insulin shot, it was my very first time! I guess it's a little silly to be smiley over being successful with something so small! LMAO
