    I can tell you in all honesty, most quit their jobs, but I, like you, must work. I have 2 classes left and I do believe that I will finally be quitting my job for the last mod.

    There is only one other person in my class that works.

    I don't recommend it if you don't have to do it. But with a lot of discipline, hard work, and support you can make it thru.

    You will end up using your vacation to help you thru. Your house may look a mess more than it looks nice. You may look a mess too. But it can be done.

    Try to work it out with your employer if you can. With no husband or kids....I think it is definitely doable.

    I am not going to lie and say it was a cake walk. But it can be done. It takes a lot of planning and sacrifice. At times you think you might lose your mind but it can be done. I will be back in February. Look me up. I will help you any way I can.

    I believe that depending on where you have come from (background wise) will determine the difficulty or ease of a course. And a large part has to do with the instructor.

    I believe that they are starting clinicals in Nursing Concepts I now.

    A&P and Micro are not so hard as they are labor intensive. Stay focused and you will do well. Dr Nik is a good instructor. As she would say "Put your mind to it".

    Med Surg is a beast....again...not so much as it is hard....just very, very labor intensive. I think you will find it and Acute Care a little mind blowing. Try to stay focused and stay out of the dramas. But when I say stay out of the dramas, I do not mean don't look for friends. You will need each other to make it through.....

    I don't mind if you call me. Let me see if there is a way I can PM you my number. Call me in the morning if that is ok. I will be happy to answer any questions you have.

    Ok...I just want to say "YEAH ME!!"...I got the call this morning that I have been accepted. So Delvenia, I will be in the class with you. I was told during the interview last Thursday that the orientation will be 12/21 in the morning. When I got the call this morning, I was told the orientation will be on 1/2 at 12pm and classes start on 1/3. I left a message with the registar to get a copy of class descriptions for the first 2 classes since I need to use tuition reimbursement. My work's policy is that the application must be turned in prior to class start and with the course descriptions. I really hope I can get this prior to 1/2. So now begins the excitment but still a little scared.

    when i went to the registrar today to pick up a letter stating that i had been accepted (to apply for scholarships), i was told that orientation wasnt scheduled yet and it will likely be on 1/2/07. my admissions officer didnt tell me when orientation was last because he said he didnt know yet. Kiwan, the registrar is very helpful. I asked for my letter today and she had it ready a couple hours later. She will probably call you back by tomorrow. By the way, CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!
