  6. Is getting into a nursing school easy in other countries?
    And actually I am hearing now there are wait times for the RPN program as well. I did one in Ontario (ptbo) with no wait time, just a lot of pre-req's from HS, but that was 6 or so years ago.

  13. Looking for Health Insurance in Louisville
    Well nevermind. Apparently being pregnant means you aren't eligible for new coverage, because of the "unidentifiable entity" you are carrying. Sheesh!

  19. Any Excelsior Grads From Kentucky
    The money for the EC practice exams are worth every penny! Many of the questions are very similar... :) Good luck! NC 1 is pretty straight forward, common sense sort of stuff. Cheers, Vida
