Hey NY! First I want to give you a shout out!!!(I'm from Brooklyn)
Next, I am kinda new here too and it IS ADDICTIVE!!!!But I love it!
Great support system here and they are so good and calming your fears and answering questions, from what I have seen.
I graduated last May from an ADN program in Alaska and just got my license 3 weeks ago-took boards in Feb. (all delayed due to a car wreck)
No matter how funky school gets it's worth it. Good luck and have fun around here-these folks are hilareous!
