    I would rather stay quiet LOL! I can take it. I will answer my own questions. My Professors teach very well...most of is just that well....most of them HATE questions. They expect a lot from you. Sometimes it gets hard.

    Hey FSUMIAMIBOY....I had to quit my job. I am glad I did. I might be broke badly, but at least I have some more time to study Nursing school is HARDDDDDDDDDD, and it takes a lot of dedication. I want time for myself, and I want time to relax. After being in the hospital from 7 to 8, believe me I do not want to do anything except get home, and at least take a nap before I continue to study. You need A LOT of time to assess ALL the information that is being thrown at you. Believe me it is a lot, a lot of new stuff too. Wait to you get to the care plans. Prefer to be overwhelmed. Sometimes I feel like I am drowning and no one can save me, but with every test you have a victory. Even when you have a C on a test, you are just soooo happy. Not too much room for mistakes, but I think you will be fine.

    Smab I have my health assesment performance test next week! Along with my final for pharm, and my fudamentals on Tues, and plus I am taking microbio and I have a test on Friday. I am so happy I took microbio now and not with med-surg. I just can not wait for this horrible semester to be over. Plus I do NOT like my clinical too much. Being in a nursing home is so depressing for me. I am glad tomorrow I will be doing wound care.

    I just see these people who can not talk, have contractures and food drops, and some that do not seem to be given the best care.....I just can not stand it. I would rather deal with people who might be sick, but have their life ahead of them and will get better. What I really want to do is OB/GYN and I just can not wait to get to my third semester. Very excited. This sure is NOT NOT NOT what I like.

    I find it hard to be stuck in a place that I hate, a place I do not want to be in, and for such long hours. I get out of their emotionally drained, and to be honest I just hate Wednesdays because it means Thursdays (my clinical day) is about to come.

    YAY!!! Just about one more month there, and I am DONE!!!! Believe I am ready to take my critical thinking care plan test, and get OUT OF THEIR.

    Sometimes I think nursing school is so scary, because it is so different. I am relieved that I am not worried about my GPA anymore. I am so happy that I can now just relax, sit down and take a B maybe a C. I am so happy because I am not killing myself anymore.

    Either way I wish ALL the incoming students a lot of luck. Nursing school, is a different world, and I think you really have a love hate relationship. After the first three months, you might be drained, but don't worry you all will have enough energy to move on if this is what you really want.

    Hey Guys -

    I just got accepted to the accelerated program, I understand what you mean about the rudeness. I'm currently out of the country and will be missing orientation, what day is orientation for the generic? Mine's November 6th and I won't be there, the administration is giving me grief and telling me I'll have to take the "left over" classes. Personally I feel that they should be working with me...

    Anyway, I could really use some people to talk with about the program, also someone from the accelerated program to help me figure out what classes I need to register for and how to do it. If you guys think you could be of any help to me, I'd greatly appreciate just being able to make some contacts as I won't know anyone in Florida. PM me if you like, I'd really appreciate some assistance.

    Vondutchess...i tried to Pm you when i got your message the other day, but for some reason, i can't seem to do it. I am trying to figure it out still, but maybe i am just dense with it. Do you have an email adress i can email you at? I will send you some info there...whatever you need including my phone number. PM when u have a chance. Orientation for the generic program is Nov. 10th. So i don't know i can help you with the classes, i see there are some people on here that are going to be starting with you into the accelerated program. Maybe they can help you out. Let's see what we can do...

    Sorry FSUMB.....i meant the20th. Lol! i bet i got you all freaked out! I don't know why i said the 10th. Probably bc my head is all over the place. I am already losing my mind and i havent even started. LOL. I am in the middle of looking at places to move to down in Broward county, so i was probably thinking of something else....sorry!
