    Im goin to UT-H but I applied to Wharton ADN program and got in but I had to resign my seat (it was my back up plan if UT-H didnt work out). My mom went to the LVN program about 15 years ago and did great. She's still a nurse and loved every minute of school. I was young but I remember how tough it was for her. The teaching staff hasnt changed much at all....Its a good place.

    Do they have an orientaion for you to attend?

    I was accepted into San Jac, we start on the 28th also, but we just spent two days of 8 hour long orientations. We got all the info in those 16 hours. They had students that had just graduated and students that are still in the program talk to us along with the head person there at the program.

    We have a three hour orientation on the 17th, but I only just received my schedule and fee statement yesterday! Up until then I didn't even know what days/hours I would be there, or how much I was going to have to come up with to pay my tuition, I still don't know how much books are going to be, if I need to buy uniforms...etc. I just like to have more of a plan in place than this is allowing me. I know...all will be revieled in time...I am just not that patient.

    On another note, I saw your name on a post yesterday, my maiden name is Bridges, and my middle initial M. Just a little HMMMM moment!

    I did not have any of that info until yesterday either - they gave it all to me at the orientation. With the exception of the uniforms - the letter telling us that we got accepted told us that we would have orientation and that we would have to buy uniforms and lab packs there. I spent a total of 370 dollars at orientation - that is not tuition or books or vaccine or anything except for uniforms, lab pack, and drug screenings!

    My middle intial is M, but Bridges is my married name not my maiden. My husbands family is all from Louisiana... Any of yours? Possible a (not so) distant relative.

    My dads family was from California by way of Iowa. Probably no connection.

    Good luck with nursing school. Maybe we can keep in contact through this process!

    I am also in the WCJC adn program and went to orientation yesterday. I am a little nervous about starting but I think it is like this for everyone. Anything started new is an exciting but scary process. I may have already talked to you face-to-face yesterday. If not I will soon.
