Accepted!! What to do this summer in preparation


Even though they are not required, I am taking Pharmacology and Abnormal Psychology this summer to better prepare me for the long journey ahead: (> RN > BSN > Nurse Practitioner). Last semester I took Medical Terminology and Human Disease while I was stuck waiting for the application period to open.

What is everyone else doing? Any tips or advice?

If you got accepted to a program, they will have an orientation day. They will tell you everything you need for and before the program. Good luck.

Congratulations on getting accepted! :up:

I'm still waiting for my letter to arrive. Hopefully, if accepted, I'll take courses towards the BSN this summer. The less I have to take after I finish my RN, the better!

I would say relax. Once the program starts there will be no rest for the weary.

Trust me, enjoy the down time you have now, as you are not going to see much of it for a while. I typically get 5-7 days between modules (including summers) and that's been for the past 2 years, and still 1 more year to go. May not be like that where you are, but I certainly have learned when a break comes TAKE IT.

What to do in preparation? um lets see... sleep A LOT, spend lots of time with family and friends, enjoy the summer!
