  1. Should I stay or should I go?
    I like the idea of keeping some variety there, as well as a potential option for the future. Besides - it gives you joy, yes? What a nice respite and change of perspective to have after those...

  3. Anyone seen any all-white shoes?
    Also, if you find some that are close - like New Balance, but they have grey stitching around the logo, for instance - use white shoe polish to rectify that problem. This expands your options quite a...

  4. Anyone seen any all-white shoes?
    Have you looked at Zappos? I've been able to find 4e shoes for my husband there. They have several pairs available that should work for you, and return shipping is free if they don't work out. I'm...

    You should be working on getting your prerequisites out of the way. What classes have to be done before applying to the program? If you haven't picked a program yet, start scouting them: it's the...

  6. Starting Lorain County Community College RN - Fall 2012
    I already have a stethoscope, so that's not an issue for me. As a respiratory therapist, I love my Littman Cardiology III. A Littman Select is good, though, and will not run more than ~40 bucks.

    Ordered my required texts for 114 on Amazon. Would have been around $225 at the bookstore for new books; I spent $135 not including the syllabus for new or like new. 115 looks rough; around 450.

    Seeing everyone's costs, I'm suddenly less unhappy about having to do the program part-time: I get to space that out a bit! Since I'm not doing clinicals this semester, I'll hold off on...

    Book lists are up. Has anyone priced things out? For 114 (my only class) it looks like about $200.

    If anything, I am *under*whelmed. I will have to pursue the part-time option and was really hoping I could manage it full time. The students at the end did a great job of scaring the crap out of...

  15. how do you feel about group projects?
    As observed by so many others, group projects kinda suck. Not just for the inevitable person who doesn't want to do anything - we should anticipate that and just pick up their slack. Also, a...

  16. Tri-C pre-nursing student
    What other classes would you be taking? Do you work? I thought Micro was pretty breezy; nothing compared to A&P or BioChem.

  17. C=degree
    Exactly, snickers! I'm not competitive with other students, per se, but I'm not happy unless I get an A - because I know that I'm capable of it. Type A, though? Hardly. Just a geek. ;)

    In most program you can request certain clinical sites, but there are no guarantees that you will get a spot at that site. It's also not possible - or desirable, really - to do all clinicals at a...

    Tri-C's nursing program is also well-respected. I chose LCCC for a number of reasons - I'm a west-sider, and their clinical sites are more convenient for me. They were also much nicer to me about...
