    Ah, I see. The waiting is the hardest. Yes, I'll be taking my prerequisites starting in August at a local community college. I hope to then transfer to a university to get my BSN at a later time.

    I wish you luck as well. If you ever need anyone to talk to or have any questions, feel free to e-mail me or msg me here. I think you are going to do great here in the US. Hang in there!:hngon:
    Best wishes,
    Tish~

    If your orientation is anything like mines, mainly what you do for the first couple of days is just fill out paperwork, watch videos & read through packets regarding procedures of the facility, company policies & etc.. After that we had to follow one of the other aides & learn about each resident's needs, care plan etc..
