    I didn't have time to visit NLC library last semester. Today I went there before my first class. Have you seen the magazine selection? WOW! They have magazines like Nursing2005, RN, Pediatric Nursing and other nursing related.
    I guess I will spend my free time at the library on school days.

    That's cool! The only time I've been in the new one was for about 3 days during my wintermester English class.

    Does it still look empty? I know when the Irving Library and the NLC library parted ways, they Irving Library took a bunch of the books. So, it looked empty. :imbar

    I thought about ordering some of the nursing magazines. I love looking at things like that.

    Well I took the NET today. I posted my score over in the "I Hate Math" thread. I really am disappointed that I didn't ace the math portion of the test.

    You'll note that my little sister/mentor Gauge14IV has joined us. She's an RN (ADN, BSN) and currently a F-NP student. She's a big reason why I'm here with you guys and heading where we're all heading.

    Yes the NLC library is nice. I hope they get it filled up again since IRving Public pulled out. The Children's Library was so nice.

    The shelves seemed to be full when I was there. There were also plenty of chairs available. I was surprised how nice everything is there.

    Congrats! Good luck to you!


    BTW, my situation is similar. It really feels good to think about what all you have overcome to get to this point doesn't it? Those with an easy 4.0 doesn't know the feeling of fighting for entry.

    I'm sure it will make us appreciate it more.
    Really? I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one in this situation. I agree, it will make us appreciate getting in even more.


    Hope everyone's classes is going well so far!! I've decided to take the semester off.

    I was going to take the semester off, but something possessed me to take general chemistry (1411) & music appreication (1306).

    At least the chem is over Oct 21st & the music doesn't start until Oct 21st. So, the latter half of the semester won't be as demanding.

    Hey , I just wanted to let you guys know that Linda from El Centro says that you can fulfill your humanities requirement with Span 1311. So for any of you prenursing students wanting to go to either El Centro (humanites) or Brookhaven (Span 1311) you can satisfy both with one class.

    That doesn't help me either. I made a B in all three of my spanish classes, just as I did in my American Literature.

    Now, if they will use History 1301, then I'd have all A's on my support classes! lol
