    I will be taking Basic Nursing Concepts and Health Assessment (10 credits combined) plus American National Government (if I decide to keep this one). Still assessing as to whether I should take anything other than nursing.

    Good Luck everyone!

    I just learned the nursing program I'm starting in the fall isn't 9 hrs but 16hrs! . I'll be taking Foundations of Nursing, Clinical Inquiry, Pathophys., Health Assesment, Caring in Literature, Human Technology Interface. It's going to be a busy fall! . Is anyone else planning on working during their program and where will it be(hospital, retail)? I'm hoping to do part time 20hrs./wk administration.
    I'll be taking 18 credits, and no, I'm not planning on working at all. I would like to, but they tell us we really shouldn't. Perhaps after the first semester's over I'll try and get a student nurse job on a very part-time basis.

    As if I weren't already broke enough.....sigh...It'll be Ramen noodles for dinner for me for a while!

    I'm debating whether to work or not because the job I have now isn't really work; it's occupying a desk. I can have study time or stress free time but I'm still not sure if it's such a good idea. Now if I could get sleep time that would be another consideration

    I start ADN program Sept 17, I will be taking Intro to Nursing and Basic Principles of Nutrition. I'm finishing up my pre-reqs this summer with organic chem, micro, and english comp II. I also just quit my job effective June 20th so I am a little freaked out right now about my finances. I only did because I would get more financial aid if I was unemployed but now I am starting to wonder as the bills are rolling in....

    I will be starting my ADN program this fall (Aug 23?) and I'll be taking the following classes:

    Intro to Nursing (NUR 111) 8 cr
    Pharamacology I (NUR 136) 1 cr

    I also to need to make myself full-time for fin-aid reasons so I'm going to work on my gen. ed. requirements for my BSN. I may as well while I do have the time!

    I plan on working part-time, about 10-15 hrs a week. I'm lucky in that my current place of employment is willing to let me cut-down to part-time hours and I'm pretty sure they will not cut my pay either, which really helps. Beats having to find a retail job starting $.50 above min. wage!

    Does anyone else have to attend an "interview" in July? My program has a mandatory 4 hour interview session in which we are required to be dressed in "business attire". From what I understand this has no reflection on whether we get into the program (as we are all "tentatively admitted" as long as we turn in CPR cards, physicals, etc by the listed due dates), it seems it may be more of an orientation, get to know the professors kind of day. Anyone have anything similar in your program? Please let me know. I really plan on taking that day very seriously, thinking about renting a car for that hot, sticky July morning since my AC is gone in my car; I really don't feel like showing up after a 40 min. drive w/crazy, wind-blown hair! Eek!

    I will !! ( Thanks to God) I will be starting the ADN program. My nursing courses are Intro to Nursing, and Adult Nursing I. I need to complete A&PII and Chem. I am contemplating taking one online and one during the summer so I can just take my nursing classes and a web based course. I am extremely scared and excited at the same time. Tomm. I start my vacinations and we have 3 weeks to orientation.
