    I called my state board of nursing, who checked the computer and "something just got lost somewhere". She marked me eligible in the comptuer and in 30 minutes I had my ATT. Good Luck!

    I would take care of any and all of your co-reqs before the program. You can't take any in the last semester, and the first is just freaking crash course disaster-ish, so just get them out of the way. Having said that, the application may be due by September 1st, but they don't actually finish choosing the applicants at the end of the semester so you would be just fine.

    You need APHY 101 to get the points to get in, and you can take 102 while in the program. I'm 2nd semester and currently taking advanced physio while also doing nursing classes. I will tell you that if you can AT ALL take your co reqs first do them then! Our cohort is the last 4 semester cohort and we are FLYING, I don't have any clue how you guys are supposed to do coreqs AND nursing classes at the same time. I firmly believe it would make me cry several days a week, lol. APHY isn't easy, but you will go over it again, and again, and again.... Good luck!

    I'm an IVT nursing student and we use all of our books, some people use them more than others. I would buy what they tell you and then use them to understand the concepts. You will pass tests just following the powerpoints and such, but having a firm grasp on it is made easier by reading. The smaller books, liek the drug guide, and NANDA book, will go with you EVERYWHERE. Class, clinicals.. they will form an integral part of your education.

    If you take one hour out of one day to go to the gym you will be better for it. I used to go 4 or 5 times a week for 2 or 3 hours a day but I just can't, mostly because classes take up time. But I DO have Monday and Tuesday off, so I go those days and Saturday. I have kids too but I find even if I have go for a walk (BY MYSELF!), it clears the fuzzy stuff out of my head.

    Tip for IVT.. if the deadline for letters is May 31.. plan on getting your letter June 1st. My letter wasn't sent out till the DEAD LAST DAY. The wait was awful. I start on the 27th though, I made it!! Good luck

    When I first started this journey, I jumped in with both feet and wasn't completely prepared. Long story short, my kid got sick and I had to withdraw. Well I didn't but I thought I had to because my type A personality said that If I have perfect attendance and straight A's, the world would end. One year later, with a withdrawl (essentially a fail since I left so late in the semester) and a C in psych I retook the classes. They are all still there but I was admitted into the program because I went back and got an A in all of my classes. Talk to your advisor. I'm willing to bet that after all these years later, you can retake the class and start over

    I have the Littman Classic II SE in black with smoke finish. The bell is engraved. I justified the purchase because I use it at home as well as for school. It will get plenty of love. I may upgrade for a graduation present.

    I have a laptop for class and almost never use it during class. I like that it's portable so that you can work on papers next to everywhere, but when it came to notes and stuff hand wrote stuff down. Having to think to write the words sealed stuff better in my brain cells

    I have a Jansport and I love it It holds a TON of stuff, BUT if you need laptop space and it's bigger than 15 inches.. it's a feat to get it in there. I am looking at the UA backpacks, but people tend to love them or hate them.. so for right now I'll stick to my black label JanSport

    Normal to be nervous. One day at a time. Fortunately the first days of class are all about sylabusses (lol) an rules. It helps to break down barriers. I really enjoyed the science classes. It was the gen ed stuff that I hated! By the way, 27 isn't too old! I'm 36 with two kids both under 6 (one special needs) and I was accepted to the ASN program for fall. If you want it, you can do it

    Schedule for who? Ivy Tech or Med Tech?
    Ivy Tech is in the process of streamlining their program. But you still need to take pre-req classes and for those you choose your schedule. Im not sure about Medtech.

    Tell me about it!!! Ours is July 10th, when is yours? I promised myself that I would take it easy this summer. Hahahahaha...I can't stop thinking about deadlines, financial aid, and what-ifs. I don't even have any deadlines as of yet and I am already stressing about it. Our campus doesn't give us any information until orientation. We will still have about 6 weeks to complete everything, but its just sooo close to the start of school.
    Our orientation is July 14. Lickity Split, soon as I got that letter I had my background and drug screening done, I've taken my BLS class and I just received word that my titres are good so I don't need anymore shots, so my physical is complete. Nothing left to do now but shop and wait!

    Thats a course load. Some of those "busy" classes can be done over the summer. A&P has a lot of information you need to remember as it follows you forever and ever. If you are single and have a lot of study time go for it. If not.. I'd cut back a class.
