    Nice to meet you, det01!
    I live in Cabot, attending at ASU-Beebe.

    I received the Associate of Science in Health Sciences this spring,
    and I am going to go to Harding, majoring in nursing.

    Harding is so expensive as you know.

    I cannot apply to any scholarship with GPA 3.83 because I am an
    international student.

    I received a letter about the ASU Systems Transfer Scholarship
    from ASU-Jonesboro. However, I cannot apply.

    I once visited the Baptist Health Schools of Nursing and Allied
    Health Campus for Career Nights 2002.
    However, I cannot apply to the RN program because I am an
    international student.(I have a student visa, so I have to attend
    a school.)

    Anyway, I will do my best to be a nurse as a christian servant.

    I am looking for people in Arkansas, too.
    Keep in touch.

    Hi~nurs2b! I read your writing now.

    Thread written by nurs2b

    I am nurvous about starting the nursing school.
    I want to survive there!!!:zzzzz
    Your writing makes me comfort.

    Would you give me some advice about what to do this summer?
    I plan to take a CNA class at Conway.
    Is it good for me?

    I'm glad to meet you!

    I think being a CNA will be useful to you... You will definately be comfortable doing Vital Signs and taking care of patients....

    I work as a PCA and I have learned so much over just watching the nurses work and what they do... Most of them are great at explaining things...

    You live in Conway??

    Nice to meet you!
    I have a question to you.
    What program are you in?

    I live in Cabot, Arkansas.
    I'm from South Korea.

    I've been here for 2 years.

    My plan was to finish the Associate of Science in Health Sciences degree at ASU-Beebe and to transfer to BSN program.

    I finished about 55 hours.

    I tried to go to Harding University at Searcy, but it is expensive and requires too much bible classes.

    I need nursing school information.
    I may need to wait one year more.

    Can you introduce your program?
    And other information about nursing program in Arkansas?

    The list:

    Thanks a lot!!!

    I am going to Baptist. My DH is military and we will not be here long enough for me to do a BSN. I already have one Bach degree though, so I will try to go directly from RN - MSN at our next station. Going to Baptist enables me to have my RN by Dec 2004

    Conway (UCA) has a nursing program as does University Medical School. UCA has an application deadline of Jan. I am not sure about the deadline at Uni Med - however, they do require you have 3 semesters of chemistry I think.

    There is an ADN program at UALR.

    Those are the only other programs that I know about.
