I'm excited to be starting my first pre-reqs: Psychology 110, English Composition and Fundamentals of Math (Have a lot to do to catch up on math unfortunately). I hope to finish my pre-reqs in 5 quarters and plan t/o apply for next falls RN program. If I don't finish in time I'll have to wait till the spring which would stink.
I've been using this great site as a break from study. I lure myself into hours more study by telling myself I can poke around here for 20 minutes if I work hard. Does anyone else feel it's great getting to look INTO the mysterious world of nursing and see that there is an end in sight to this long journey?
Also, like a lot of you, I buy a lot of nursing books and slightly old text books and I read them for "fun" (really!). I'm most interested in Oncology nursing and I found 2 excellent books at Amazon
recommended here on this site..$11.00 with shipping. Can't beat that!
I'd really love to get to know some of you heading toward the class of 2007. (that sounds so far away). I think it would be great to share info and ask for help along the way. I can hardly believe the amazing links available here to help with everything from Nursing math to A&P.

I am right there with you!! I will be starting my pre reqs this june, and hope to be a 07 grad. I too am so excitied. I float around on this wonderful web site to give me encouragement, and study advise. You sound just like me, I too read older nursing books, any I can get my hands on. I would love to keep in contact with you through all that is right around the corner. We can support eachother! I am also having to do alot of catching up on math. I have a 15 yr old son who is a whiz, and laughs at me because I cant do fractions! (He is in geometry already!) Lets go girl....lets go get that degree!
By-the-way, where are you? I am in California, San Luis Obispo~
