Orientation today!

  1. Hi, I'm so excited as we just completed our orientation day for the Freshman nursing class.

    I'm Sonya and I'm starting my first year in the nursing program this Fall at Eastern Oklahoma State College in Wilburton, Oklahoma. It's an ADN program for RN and I'm officially in the Class of 2008!

    I'm 36 years old and the mother to 3 daughters and step mom to 4 step sons. My girls are 8 year old twins and one about to turn 7 in a couple of weeks. They start school tomorrow, so we'll have one busy household for the next two years.

    I'm looking forward to the challenges ahead as this is the fulfillment of a life long dream. I had begun an LPN program 2 years ago, but had to withdraw after the first trimester due to family circumstances....but I'm psyched to begin this program and see it to it's completion.

    Any other class of 2008 members....and any other Oklahoma Student Nurses??

    Yeah, good luck, Nursing school is not like any other school in that college. But you probably are already prepared

    Congratulations on your First day! -I am also attending Northern Oklahoma College in Tonkawa, Oklahoma! -My orientation is not until August 19th, and I am both very scared, yet excited! I wish you the best of luck, and I'm sure that your enthusiasm will carry you far! :spin:

    I think I'm going to drive everyone crazy around here with my excitement over school starting...

    Our classes start on Tuesday, August 15th, so I don't have long to wait, thankfully.

    Good luck to you RN2Bee....How far north is Tonkawa....we're down near McAlester in southeast OK.

    I'm in Oklahoma City.

    I'm starting the University of Central Oklahoma (in Edmond) BSN program. I'm more excited now than anything and just want to get it started. We start on the 21st so I have one more week off to relax with my kids.

    I'm 32 years old and have a husband (who works for OUHSC and is also a ft student) and we have 2 girls, ages 4 and 8.
