Good luck to us all!

I am taking a dev. math (my worse subject), Psychology, Sociology, and Intro to computers (this one should be pretty easy since I spend so much time on the computer)
I am taking Psychology and Sociology by telecourse and the other 2 in the evenings on campus because I have 2 small children.
I'll prob get into the Nursing program Fall of 2004. I mainly want to get my pre-req's completely out of the way 1st!!

It took me 1 year to get my math pre reqs to get on to the nursing list and 1 1/2 years to actually get into the RN program. So you guys that are still wating, dont feel bad. Youll get in eventually! At this rate Ittl have take n me 6 years to get a freakin BSN. Darn waitlists!!!

I'm finishing all my pre-req's this semester for a BSN. I will be taking Micro, Chem, Medical Ethics and Developmental Psych.
I'll start in the Fall.
I too feel jealous of all that are starting in January but I will patiently await August. Good Luck everyone!

Definitely get your pre-req's & co-req's out of the way. If you know that your school follows the question format on their tests similar to the nclex exam, I strongly suggest getting a book that helps you learn those test taking skills so that you get accustomed to the type of questions you'll be asked. It's a lot different than what you're used to with all of the other classes you've taken.
You'll be starting the nursing program before you know it.
Jan 7, '03Occupation: Complaint resolution supervisor, stupid question department Joined: Nov '02; Posts: 236; Likes: 1I already had a BS so I had no pre-regs. I just don't like waiting. I've been waiting since Nov. when I applied to a nursing program. I won't find out if I've been accepted until March and will start in July.
Jan 7, '03Joined: Nov '02; Posts: 208Hi Everybody!
They go by accumulated points at our college so you pretty much have to have pre reqs done before you can get into "Intro to nursing".
This semester im taking AnP2 and Humanities,
Speech in the summer,
Micro and Algebra 1 and 2 after that.
So in the next year or so Il have some serious decisions to make regarding my present job and my future.
Jan 7, '03Occupation: stressed out student and mom Joined: Dec '02; Posts: 99I will be starting my pre reqs in the summer and take more in fall so I can start my nursing program next january. Feels like forever! I cant wait
Jan 8, '03Occupation: run a private group home Joined: Jul '02; Posts: 144I started my prereqs last summer and hope to finish up this summer with Micro and a PE class, and that's been full-time all the way. I have to have my application in by March for the fall semester. I figure if I don't get in for the fall class, I'll get in for the spring and in the meantime I'll take gen ed classes to use later for my BSN. There isn't a direct BSN course around here to take, just ADN and bridge over....... I'm hoping to find out from others what "extra" books are recommended so I can pick them up here and there with the extra tuition I get right now. Good luck to everyone.
Jan 8, '03Joined: Aug '01; Posts: 311; Likes: 4oh boy the wait, the wait ,the wait. It seems as if I am waiting forever. I hope to get in the program for fall2003. All my prerequisites are done for the BSN program. I am just emotionally stressed from waiting. I will have to wait until mid-march to know if I get in. Sighs..........awwwwwww.
Jan 8, '03Joined: Dec '02; Posts: 12I can't wait to start this spring semester and get it over with. I am taking A&P 1 and 2. And the books for these two class:an anatomy/physiology book, lab book, disk, and two other books cost about $350(talk about squeesing the piggy bank)!! I took nat and phys about seven years ago and squeezed a B out of it, the only difference with that class is that it was a whole semester and we had no lab. Talk about boring, huh? Just a lot of lecture. I took it twice because the first time it really blew my mind. The teacher was great it was just so much info.
Our net test is required before the end of May to be admitted for the Fall 2003 class. I am on pins and needles, because I am not exactly a young pup anymore(almost 30).
GOOD LUCK TO US ALL!!!
Jan 8, '03Occupation: Student Joined: Dec '02; Posts: 1,778; Likes: 20WHOA! A lot more people are WAITING rather than GRADUATING! I guess this is a GREAT thing so there won't such a nursing shorage. (always a good thing) Um, well, to answer this post, I am a senior in High School, and I will start/finish pre-req's this August (03). As Teresa said, I am SO jealous of ya'll already graduating, or even STARTING nursing school! But, as stated previously, my turn in coming and I can't wait! Good luck to all who are awaiting letters. I at least can understand that!
