    Hi Bucky,

    I finished Intensive Care in about 2.5 days. I loved it. I could not put it down at all and even hid it in my desk at work and would read when no one was looking.

    Let me know how Condition Critical is. Yeah, I agree, she did go a little whacko a few times.

    I also picked up that Test Taking Guide for Student Nurses that you recommended. I am about half way through it. I thought a few of the chapters were a little tough to get through but I am really enjoying going through the practice tests.

    Maybe it's just me but I am having diffculty thinking/rationalizing for why I pick certain answers based on if they contain the same "stem" or the answers are "negative" where the question is looking for a positive answer but I think just doing the samples is helping me get into the "multiple choice" frame of mind.

    I start the program in August too.

    I get 10 days off, so I think me and my man are going to take off to Las Vegas for a couple of days to celebrate my birthday!

    I'm really excited, yet nervous about starting the program. I hope I'll have what it takes to be a nurse!

    If I'm accepted ( I should know around Jne 15th)...I plan on doing lots of things with my children. They are going to take swimming lessons, my dh and I have to teach them how to ride bikes. I'm in the process of teaching my 2 yr. old to use the potty...I don't know how long that's going to We're planning a weekend at Sesame Place and at Busch Gardens. Lots of cooking out, kite flying, reading and crafts....I know there is so much more to do...
