    What address do we mail the 10 panel drug screen to?
    I called the nursing dept yesterday and the lady said I don't need to mail my drug results, and that I can just bring the form with me on orientation.

    Thanks ShanayJ! Hopefully I can save enough money to work only a few hours for those 7 1/2 weeks.


    I feel the same as you ARock&AHardplace about the financial aid and unemployment but you have to do what you have to do! I might end up having to quit my current job and become a CNA when the time comes.

    Have you all thought about trying work at home transcription jobs? you type up documents and get paid for it. the hours are flexible and its nice pocket change. some make $200 every two weeks doing it. not a whole lot but its better than nothing

    Hi Kadambari, I would be interested in doing that but I'm not sure how to get started. Any tips would be appreciated

    Scribie, TranscribeMe, Quicktate, and Tigerfish are a few transcribe work at home companies.

    I do CNA work now, I love it. I work in home care so I get to study most of the day because I'm with 1 client. Plus, it looks really good when you have 2 years of experience on your resume when applying for RN jobs...it doesn't pay a lot but it pays the bills and gets me through this program :-)

    When I get back (hopefully in about a month) I want to go do CNA work, How did you get your foot in the door? did you pay for CNA training or did your company train you? I really dont care if I work in a Hospital, LTC, or at home I just wanna start my career and like you said having the experience is really good.

    Any advice on where to go to train? or what companies i should look at that pay for the training?

    I appreciate it

    I paid for my training out of pocket. I don't know what part of Michigan your coming to but I did my training in Oak Park but just look it up on the internet, they're everywhere. When I was finished I was on craigslist 24/7 until I found a job.

    Registration is this Wednesday! I am very excited If anyone wants to say hello, I am Italian (dark brown hair, brown eyes, tan skin), female, I'll probably be wearing workout clothes cause I'm hitting the gym before the day starts.

    I just also need to vent a little. I absolutley LOATHE when people assume "this is the hardest thing we will ever do." Don't get me wrong I am sure this will be very difficult but there are cancer survivors out there people and people that have faced VERY troubling times. If the nursing program is "the hardest thing you ever have done" I seriously envy you. Just sayin.....

    Which reminds me, I need to stay on top of my workout regimen despite the crazy schedule we'll have when nursing school starts.
