2. CPR certification before school starts and immunizations started (but doesn't have to be complete) before school starts. I thought they had to be complete by the time January rolled around but others were still working on theirs so as long as you start your series of shots that take 6 months to complete you'll be fine.
3. We started with 54 and was down to 39 at the summer session. Now going into the fall we lost 5 more. Some people actually gave up in the first semester so not all of those numbers are failures. I think a few people actually dropped out before the end of the semester (like before the drop date and get a W on your transcript). So yes the program is hard but stay focused and study. But don't just study, understand it!! Try to get things to make sense in your mind and not just memorize. That's the best thing for you.
4. I still have time for friends/social life because I make myself have time for it! I am married with two kids so my social life revolves around them, but honestly sometimes it feels like I don't have a life anymore, but it's ok b/c you're gonna have such good friends in the program that it's not that bad! Right now we are on a two week break and 3 of my days have been spent with nursing school
friends because we have gotten that close. I've definitely made lifelong friends so even when stuck in a 5 hour class it's not that bad because I have my girls with me! Hope that makes sense!!
