    I am going to bust my butt working full-time, studying some RN dosage calculations and reviewing A&P. Then at the end of the summer I am going to take a Carribbean cruise right before the start of Nursing school this fall. :hatparty:

    I owe it to myself.

    Glad to see lots of others will be sitting in a classroom with me, this summer. I don't usually mind taking summer classes because normally I schedule them in the evenings, and usually do classess that are not very demanding. Due to scheduling problems this spring, however, I am stuck taking A&P II over the summer.

    M-F, for 5 weeks, in the mornings....ICK. Now I have to make arrangements for my daughter during that time, which I do not like to have to do in the summer. Oh well, not much I can do about it, huh? At least summer classes are fast. I do like tht aspect! And at least after the class in the morning I can prop up by the lake, catch some sun, and study all afternoon!

    IF I get into the nursing program this fall - beginning in June I'll quit my FT job and take my last two pre-reqs, two P.E. type classes. Then nursing courses begin full-time in July.

    Probably I'll take the whole summer off from school and work a couple days a week at the hospital as a tech. I'll take a trip to PA to visit my grown kids and bring my 3 year old granddaughter back to spend a couple weeks down here with me and her other grands. We'll make sandcastles at the beach and talk to the pelicans. I think I'm going to have to serve jury duty that was deferred twice already b/c of school. Tossing around the idea of taking an express summer course toward my BSN but horror stories about second semester might keep that idea in check. It might be better if I just rest up.

    Mostly I intend to be very lazy, watch videos, soak up the salt air and read a good book at a snail's pace.

    I am supposed to be taking a couple of classes, probably Nursing Research, and Nursing Management... two that I dread b/c they sound so boring...required for our program but not clinical classes. I would like to just take a break this summer but I probably won't since it'll just mean more work later. At least they should be online so no 110mile commute.
