    Hello, I'm Shelia, I am in first term and drowning.... I hope maybe you could share some insight on the HESI test. I have ordered the Saunders N-Clex review book and it's on its way. None of our teachers have mentioned anything about the Hesi, just that it is scheduled next month. My Fund. of Nursing/concepts reads her powerpoint and does not elaborate, My health assessment teacher just says read the materials, it is very frustrating, I am barely passing those two classes. I needed to know about the kinds of info on hesi. Thanks for your message and congrats on your progress so far I am soo jealous, Sometimes I get so discouraged, and wonder if I can do it, everyone says that if you make it through 1st term you can do it. Anyway, pleasure meeting you and I will see you around in here. Shelia

    Hi All I am Kat I am Starting an ADN program in the fall of 2006 and Can hardly wait! Have my last pre-req final tonight in Chem 105 Excited to get that one done and over. I am Married, 45 ys old with 4 kids (20,14,13,11). Feel like I have been waiting to be a nurse all my life. I am leaving the accounting trade where I have worked for 20+ years. I am a bit apprehensive, but have loved getting back to school part time for the pre-reqs. Hope nursing school goes as well.

    30 y/o with a 10 y/o daughter and one on the way (got my acceptance letter and a positive pregnancey test ON THE SAME DAY) I ain't giving up:angryfire !!! I will have 4 days to rest after delivery and then back to school. Thank GOD for LABOR DAY, literally in my case. Spent lots of time at a 4yr school on the "waiting/let me take more of your money list" and finally decided to switch to an ADN program to get on with it. I start on MONDAY! I wish EVERYONE GOOD LUCK and I can't wait to pick everyone's brain.
