    Brookhaven has the Accelerated ADN, but I guess they have corrected the mistakes from ECC. It seems to be a good program.

    I still wouldn't like the interview part. I don't have a problem with talking to patients, but intervies make me nervous.

    I wouldn't want an interview either Funnie,

    I've met a couple of the profs in the nursing program at El Centro on my many trips to the top floor of that building. They scare me silly. I'd make a complete doofus of myself in any interview!

    The books are changing for 1st semester students. Well, at least some books are. The NLC orientation for Fall' 06 starters is June 20th, and we won't find out about books until then.

    Brianna, do you always have clinicals at the hospital where you work?

    Don't stress too much about the checkoffs -- those aren't that bad. I was nervous going in, but the lady watching me was really nice about it. (I was considering something other than nursing and started taking that class this past Spring -- now I wish I hadn't dropped it when I decided to become a nurse).

    It's hard to think it could be even faster than it is. Wow! I don't think I could do that much in one year.

    Jaxia what else where you taking? Are you saying you wished you ahd finished those classes this past semester along with your nursing classes?

    I know folks say to be happy for the breaks, but I kind of wish it did go straight through. Revving up to "full-on study state" is easy for me, but revving down is HARD. Once I get going I like to keep going unil I'm done so I can take advantage of the momentum. It helps me avoid procrastination. That is why summers off bother me. I would have to stay at least partially busy in the summer with a class or two or an internship to keep my mind in gear.

    I was taking the first couple of HPRS courses (I don't remember the numbers) and pharm. In one, I had to learn med term and do vital skills, cath and wound dressings; the other covered medical ethics and stuff.

    Sorry for the confusion -- I am not in the program yet. I am applying for Spring 07. They are looking at adding that HPRS class as a pre-req for nurses and running a pilot program for Fall 06 by having students take the class. It sounds like the one with skills checkoffs and med term could have potentially helped me if I had finished it.
