Hi all! I love it here, just to let you know :redpinkhe. I am (hopefully) going to be starting LVN program in January (6 months YIPPEE!!) After a year of really hard work on prereqs and everything that goes along with applying! I have two school choices: Tyler County Hospital, Woodville Texas and Angelina College, Lufkin Texas. I would love to meet new friends that will be attending the same timeframe and program as me! I am sure most of us are nearing the "waiting" period for finding out if we made it in or not! Lets go through this stress together! My name is Beth by the way, four children, two boys, two girls, and one husband:yeah:all of which are happy that I am going to school. My husband just started his prereqs this summer to start LVN in January 2011! He wants to go for surgical nursing, I want to be right up in L&D since I kinda know a little about birthing babies:uhoh3:! Hope to meet some new friends!

I'm starting January of 2010 for the RN program at my school. I've been completing my pre-reqs for years now, taking time off here and there for work reasons and having babies. I have 2 kids ages 4 and 1. I'm so excited to have a start date for the actual nursing program finally! I can't wait! I know it will be very tough but I'm hoping I will be able to make it through. I'm still wondering how we will be able to make if financiallly with me having to quit my job. My job is mon-fri 9-5 so there is no way I will be able to continue working there. I'm hoping to find a job as a server part time to make up for a little of the loss and hoping my husband will also be able to find a second job. He's a firefighter, so his schedule allows a second job very easily. He's hoping to get a job in the hospital as a tech or as an EMT. I'm scared that working will be too tough while in the program because I've had so many people tell me that it's too hard to work and find time to study, especially if you have kids. I hope God gets me through this!

Well, here's to us for finally making it to this point!

I have had a lot of people tell me the same thing, thankfully I already work at the hospital in PBX and I have been working 20 hours a week for a while now so that I could concentrate on school. Maybe you could try something parttime at the hospital for just a few hours a week? another good option is to true the student work study at your college if you qualify for it as they work around your schooling. Its not many hours, usually only 15 max, but something is better than nothing! its nice to meet you!

I hope so, because the waiting game is terrible! Have you guys already took your entrance tests? I have one in August and one in September, TWO different tests, one is the TEAS and the other is Hesi

Yes, I have taken the only pre-enterance required. It's the NET (Nurse Enterance Test).

After I passed it, I was sent an application packet. I then went through the process of

titers, physical, references, releases, ect.. Turned the packet back in approximately a

month ago. Was told at that time that I am in the January 2010 class.:typing

I did a lot of studying on my own and with the study guide for the NET.

Basic math, fractions, ratios, percentages, minor algebra.

I did'nt score real high but enough to get in and that is what matters.

I am fine with the math part, I think that will be my strong point, but how hard in the english or the thinking part?

Congratulations Nina on the great news! I'm hoping to start my RN program by fall of 2010 as well(wait lists suck!). All these nursing entrance tests can be intimidating for the first time takers but there should be no reason to be as long as you come prepared and stay focused! It's just another test.

I've got 2 more weeks to wait to see if I got in to the Jan. 2010 RN program! The waiting is absolutley killing me. I've been doing pre-reqs for a year, while working as a CNA. I have 2 kids (3 and 1). Wish me luck, and good luck to all of you!

major good luck to you! I SO have my fingers crossed, did you have to take an entrance test, and if so, how well did you do?
