    Mrs Gibson,

    Thanks for your reply. The information does help a lot! I really appreciate it. Congrats on getting hired on so quickly! Aside from the fact that I really do want to be a nurse (something I really should have done years ago) I am thrilled with the job market and the demand. Years ago I was initially turned off to working weekends but now the thought of having some free days during the week to do my errands and attend field trips is great! And with gas prices on the rise, being able to work 12 hour shifts is very appealing. I'm really happy with my decision and can't wait to get started. The replies I have gotten here have really helped to set my mind at ease. Thanks so much!!

    It's so nice to see other students in fayetteville. We just PCS'd here from Fort Lewis, WA as well (April) and I will be beginning my pre-reqs at FTCC this fall...any tips and advice welcomed. I am a 28 year old mother of 3 and a little nervous about going back to school...do any of you military moms participate with NACCRRA military daycare subsidy? I'm in the process, but a little curious as to how much they might pay. Anyone in FTCC have any comments about the school? I just attended new student orientation...

    I didn't know about the daycare subsidy...fill me in please! How old are your kids? Are you going full-time?

    Is the NACCRRA daycare subsidy the one that pays a portion of daycare while your spouse is deployed? If thats the same program, we used them while my husband was deployed. They base the amount paid on rank and income. Even as a captain, they paid $100 a month for daycare which was a wonderful help.

    We just got here from Fort Gordon GA and I already accepted a position at Cape Fear. I just hope I like it there as much as I loved my old hospital. I really miss my old coworker buddies.
