1. Yipee!!!!!! I just wanted to let everyone know that I got my acceptance letter for my ADN program and have registered for classes! I'm so excited!!!! I can finally say that "I'm a nursing student"!!! Orientation is August 13th and we get fitted for our uniforms sometime in September. They'll let us know more at our orientation. I can't wait! My first semester schedule is as follows:

    Monday: 9-11:50 Health Assessment
    1-3:50 Foundations of Nursing Practice
    6-9:20 A&P II

    Tuesday: 1-2:50 Foundations of Nursing Practice

    Wednesday: 9-10:50 Professional Development (1st 8 weeks)
    6-7:15 A&P II

    Thursday: Foundations of Nursing Practice (2nd 8-weeks)

    So what do your schedules look like? Mondays are going to really suck for me...but it was the only way my schedule would work out. I'm going to start looking for a job soon (I'm quitting my first career August 1st) but I don't know what I want to do yet...maybe a pharmacy tech...I think I'll try to work Thursday & Friday nights and maybe an occasional Saturday. Anyway, I just wanted to check in and let you all know that I got in!!

    I don't have my schedule yet, but orientation is two days, Aug 7 - 8. I am resigning on August 5th. I can barely stand it.
    I think we go Tues - Fri, all day long for the first 6 weeks. They told us to keep our schedules open.
    I plan on working as a CNA on weekends after the first 6 weeks.

    Congrats, bean!

    What a great idea to take a look at one another's schedules; it's interesting how programs structure things differently.

    We have a new student picnic in late July, one-day orientation in late August, and classes start Sept 2. Most of my pre/co-reqs are done (only micro and human development are left), so my schedule's not too bad. Here's what I have for the Fall:

    Mondays: Nursing I (9 cr) theory lecture 8:55-11:35; Nursing I lab lecture 1:30-2:20.

    Tuesdays: Nursing I lab 10:45-12:30; also have to stop at clinical site to review our patient's chart for the next day.

    Wednesdays: Clinical 7-3:30

    Thursdays: Nursing I theory lecture 9:50-12:30.

    I also have an entirely online 3-cr Human Development course.

    The only real change in subsequent semesters is two clincial days instead of one.

    Best fo luck to all!

    Wonderful news!!

    I absolutely LUV my schedule!

    Mon: Nursing I lecture 1-4
    Tue: Clinical 8-2
    Thurs: Lab 9-12
    Nursing I lecture 1-3

    I'm starting an ADN program, but working on transfer courses for a BSN program as well--so I'm also taking Spanish III online and an accelerated computer class in the evening 2 nights/week for the first term and a literature course for the second term.

    Total I have 17 semester hours, but I'm hoping that it will seem more like 14 due to the way that I have it broken down into terms.

    Best wishes to everyone!!
