    I was working on Chapter 3 today as well and it makes my head hurt. I don't know about you all but this stuff is something else! Anyway, When I did the practice sheet from Nursing Tutor, most of what is on there is from what she covered in the power point. There is only the 2 questions that I was a little taken-aback with. The teaspoon to mL and the cm to mm. Also, the new e-mail has only the stuff from pp highlighted. What are your thoughts on this? I also wish they were more specific with the parts of the chapters to work on instead of being so vague. What pages in 2 and 3 did you work with?

    I am a pre-nursing student and have been following this thread for sometime now. I am also a Surgical Technologist. I am a minority with very good grades and a very high GPA. I applied for and I was accepted into the Diversity Program. I believe I would have made it one way or another, through my own determination and tenacity even if I wasn't accepted into the program. However, I never turn down a helping hand. And I try never to miss an opportunity to help someone else. This program was funded specifically for the "under-represented" in the medical field Whoever donated the money made the choice and the stipulation in how this money was to be used. The criteria are the same as if this program did not exist. There is actually more work involved in participating in this program. Volunteer work, shadowing at the hospitals, extra classes on top of carrying 12 credits. By no means will this be easy and I am definitely competent enough to be successful. I am so disappointed to see so much bitterness, hatred and anger simply because (state your own reason here). someone decided with their own money that this is how they wanted to spend it. Granted the benefits are beyond great. I for one and greatful to be a part of this program. Your anger, hatred and bitterness will only give you a heart attack. Be happy for someone sometime. It does wonders for the mind, heart and soul.
    Not to start something, but I just thought I would point out that our posts against this program was not out of hatred or bitterness. I have already graduated from the program. The government funded this program, not a private donation. I know in my class, there was a lot of minorities (not saying that there should not be more, just saying that their def. was not a shortage of them) and they were all failed, succeeded, and finished just like the white females did. I felt like it was segregation and reverse racism in a way. I am happy for you that you are accomplishing your dream and that you have extra help in doing it!! =) I was just pointing out how now a white female, who would have gotten in otherwise, now has to wait another semester, or pay to retake the NAT (because the points go up every semester) because someone who had less points was born a certain way and it does not really seem to be too fair. Good luck to you and your classmates, as I am sure you will be wonderful nurses! Nursing does not know sex nor color or background, so I did not understand the need for this program.

    I was wondering, is everyone printing all the stuff on bb, i.e. the chapters and power points. Also, does anyone know if the instructers give us handouts, like the syllabus etc? (I've already printed them out.) Like everyone else I've been printing away but I hate to print if they'll be giving us handouts. Has anyone had a problem with the class schedule? When I download it, it tells me it's corrupt. Just curious. Thanks.

    I've printed all of the syllabus as well and all of the powerpoints given by each instructor. I figured having my binder ready with each chapter will give me an advantage and not let my forgetfull self ever forget to print something. =] But your right, it is a hell of a lot of paper!

    Thanks for the information! I think that everything that was said is right on! I have several family members who have already completed the program and a couple friends who are currently in it and they all said the exact same thing!!!
