Yay!!! there are others out there.... LOL! Hello Diane!!!
So, how are you getting on with all the paperwork and stuff that we have to hand in? I'm just about done - I'm just waiting for the letter from my doctor that says I'm fit & healthy to do the course (but will I be fit & healthy AFTER I've done the course?!!!). I've got my uniforms already and am in the process of ordering a few used books each payday from Barnes & Noble - the pile on my study floor is building - I have NO idea how we're supposed to carry them to class, I might have to hire a Llama....
The only things left that I still have to do is get the patches from the college bookstore, and the Nursing Packets.
I managed to get 'Can't See Through Me' Pants from AllHeart.com, which are still a bit see-through, but better than most. I don't know how I'm going to keep the darn things clean though - Having a black Great Dane that leans on me all the while is NOT going to help, why they changed the uniform from navy-blue to white is a mystery to me, LOL!
I'm currently finishing my pre-req's by doing the Microbiology this summer, then I'm set to go. I'm still nervous about the course, but getting more excited as the time gets nearer. I wasn't expecting to get on the course until next Fall, as I was way at the bottom of the waiting list - so it came as a bit of a shock. It would have been nice if the kids had been just that 1 year older, but they will manage. I put my eldest through the Red Cross babysitting course last week, so she will be able to help me out with her little sister.
It's going to be a big year for the whole family - Eldest daughter will be starting as a Freshman in High School, and my husband will be starting his Masters degree in Computer Science in July too. Youngest is excited to be going into 3rd grade......at least we can all study together LOL!
What section are you enrolled in for Clinicals & Peds? I chose section 244 - then found out that youngest has a day off school when we are doing the 12-hour clinicals in Peds week
Oh well - hubby will just have to do a bit of child-care for a change
Do you have any kids? pets?
Best wishes Diane, tell everyone you know about this post and we'll try to organise some get-togethers before class starts.
Hope to hear from you soon,
