Hey Crickett, what all have you learned about Rio's program? I applied there a few days ago. My transcripts are on their way there. I think I'll wait until next year tho d/t big things happening in my life this year. I'll be ready to start next year, and in the meantime can take the Communications class here locally and get it out of the way.
I just dread taking the NLN Nursing Mobility test to get in next year.
Have you gone to an info meeting at the school? Have you heard anything about the transition courses? I was going to take the required Microbiology and two A&P classes now and then just have the sciences transition course waived. The woman I spoke with at the school told me that I could do that but that the transition course is only five weeks long, as opposed to the length of time to take each class. That worries me, b/c I'm thinking that if they do the equivalent of a micro and two A&P courses in only five weeks that it has to be incredibly intense.
I didn't ask her about testing... didn't think of it at the time. I'm hoping that one can go to, say, a local testing center to take the tests as opposed to driving to the school, which is a three hour drive for me. I was told my clinical locations would be in Chillocothe, which is about an hour and a half for me.
