I got my letter today

  1. Just to refresh you all I was given a second chance to take the NET this past July 15th....mainly because I came very close to passing the first one I took. Well....I passed!!!! :roll . I am sooo happy....I thought I was going to start pulling my hair out....lol. There is a hook to this though...I have to decide which program I want to enter...the evening/weekend program in Jan. 2004 or the full-time day program in Sept. 2004...... . The thing is honestly don't know what to do. I'm going to e-mail one of the counselors to find out just exactly what kind of hrs. the evening entails....also if I do start in the evening for the first semester can I switch to day in the second semester. There is a lot that I have to consider, I am married with 4 children (2 of them are school aged). And then on the one hand...I don't want to have to wait another whole year....but if I want to attend school in the day time..maybe I should. I was planning on taking phlebotomy and getting certified in that. I don't know...it's so much to decide. Anyway thanks to everyone for all the supportive advice and cyber hugs while I was going through all the drama with my CC.

    Fatima, that is so wonderful. I've been waiting to hear about your letter also. I am so excited for you. I guess now you just have to decide what you want to do. I'm sure you will decide what is best for you.

    Congrats on passing, and thanks for keeping us posted.

    YAAAA!!!! HOOOO!!!!!

    I'm an evening person...but only for pre-req classes. I'm taking A & P 2 this semester along with Psychology 102 ( I absolutely love psychology).....and possibly photography (my new hobby). But taking nursing courses...that's another story....I really want to be fullly awake and not half awake...lol.....you know what I mean. But I just don't want to wait a whole year.... If you didn't know I was accepted into the program last September 2002...but I forfeited my spot due to complications in my pregnancy. And I had a very high score on that test. I really don't know why they didn't put me on a list of consideration for the Fall 2003 class... . I don't know....who knows what makes the minds of these programs tick....lol.

    Oh you're in North Jersey. I'm in South. My CC has a night nursing program starting in January and a day program in September too. I'm going through the same thought process as you but there is a waiting list for January so I may have no choice. I have to take a CLEP test for Biology Monday to even get on the list. If I pass it great. If not, I'll be there next Fall after I take the class I'm trying to get out of. Good luck to you!
