I'm a Nurse Tech in Springfield, IL. Took the class 1 1/2 years ago. I was so nervous for clinicals but that was because I had a horrible teacher. I did dread them though. Now that I work at the hospital, I love it. I would not want to do it my entire life but it is really great experience. I feel I will be prepared when I go to nursing school in Fall '06. My job can be pretty demanding but I still love it. Feel free to ask me about anything.

The school I will be attending is somewhat competitive because they only have 50 spots or so. I am fine though because I have early admission. The school I was originally planning on going to didn't seem that competitive either. This is all in central IL, so I dont know how it is up there in Chicago...

I am attending Shawnee Community College in Southern Illinois and will be staring the LPN program in 3 weeks. It was competitive to get in, only 45 spots, and over 200 applicants. Good Luck to you!:)

Hello. I've just made the decision to go into nursing (career change at the age of 43). I will be attending a summer course to become a CNA. Have you worked as a CNA yet? I live in Chicago and I'd appreciate any pointers. Thanks!
