I start class next Monday at American College of Nursing in Concord. Had orientation today and received all 5 HUGE books today. It's an accelerated program so they expect you to read in advance. Average reading is 100 pages a day. Whoa! :-/ Anxious to get it started and get to clinicals. Looks like I'm off to hit the books. Good luck to everyone else starting out as well and I will definitely be posting about my experiences.
