I'm 36. My birthdate is 8/3/74. How about you? Yes, I felt pretty ancient in my pre-req classes, but I don't think about it much these days. I'm focused on getting into the program, becoming an RN, then going onto get my BSN, then ultimately becoming a Nurse Anesthetist. So, I have a few years of studying ahead of me, but I'm looking forward to it.
CSM stands for College of Southern Maryland. One of their campuses is located in LaPlata, MD, where I grew up. The Foundations of Nursing course takes the place of NU 105: Nursing in Healthcare at MC. It's just a 1 cr class, so it wasn't a big deal, but it was nice to get it out of the way. One less thing to think about.
I'm lucky to have already received my bachelor's degree in psychology, so I already had most of the pre-requisites completed. I just needed A&P 1 & 2 and Microbiology. So, it could've been worse.
I can't tell you how relieved I am to have seen the change in requirements for the TEAS. I'm still stunned that I could have been spending the next two months, plus the two months that I've already been studying, to re-take the exam. What a waste of time and effort that would have been. Someone must've been watching over me yesterday. I feel very fortunate.
