    Hi Opalm,

    Thank you for your response. I plan on applying for next fall's nursing class, but after spending two +years on this degree, I'll have my AA in accounting, mainly just to have that piece of paper in my hand. As the only class I have to take for this degree is a humanities class, I can take the nursing prereqs as well.

    I just wonder what kind of response I'm going to get when I apply to the nursing program, I'm worried that I might be shut out because of it, despite the fact that I will have the prereqs by the time the next class starts, I have a good GPA and I plan to get my application in during the priority period at my school.

    Hey Johnny 80339,
    Thank you for your words of encouragement! I do enjoy learning, it's just that some classes seem overwhelming at times. Finals are coming up fast and with Gods' help I'll survive them and keep my 3.5 GPA intact.

    Again thank you for your time and concern.

I am currently an EMT and hoping to start my ADN pre req this fall I am very excited about becoming a nurse just a little scared with all the comments about how hard it is since I won't be able to dedicate all my time to school and studying since I have a family but a lot of you have more kids than I do so I know it can be done..

    I'm Anna, last semester of ADN. Supposed to graduate Dec 14th but we have a silly requirement at our school. You fail if you have a 82% exam average and none of your other work (all 94% or more)counts towards that average, nor the passing of clinicals. So I may not be graduating. I have 2 exams left (one is a cumulative final exam) that i have to acquire 97% at least. Next exam is monday and they're 60 questions, this means I'm allowed only 1-2 incorrect. Another not so nice thing: All our exams are written in "NCLEX-RN format" by our instructors. Please say a prayer for good luck to a nursing student who desparately needs one. Thanks!

    Hello to all.......
    My name is Arthur, I am a 38 years old student, preparing to retire from active military service (21 years) with the USAF. I am a Computer Science BS degree holder married to a BSN RN TNS CCM, who has shown me that nursing has always been in my blood. We have three children (21 - Son, 20 - Daughter, and 16- Daughter). I am currently taking my prerequisites for an Accelerated BSN program at St Louis University. Nursing is the only other profession besides law enforcement, and firemen who earn the same respect as members of the armed forces. I served my country for decades, and by becoming a nurse, I will be able to continue to protect and assist the citizens of the greatest Nation in the world.
