    No, I work with performance improvement and quality. I investigate all of the medication errors and adverse drug events that occur within Wellstar. After I get my associates degree, I plan on getting my masters. I have to work full time right now and GA highlands has a flexible schedule.

    Starrdan....just wondering.....

    Have you called the nursing department at Georgia Highlands to see what the hold up on the letters is? I think we all have....and I was just wondering what they told you, if you had called.

    Maybe if we all show up and sit in their office and refuse to leave until they mail the letters, they will mail them. hehehehehe

    I have not called. I don't know why but I am so nervous to call them. I will call if you would like for me to try. Has anyone called lately?

    I just called and they stated the letters will be sent at the end of the month.

    What is the hold up on the letters? Maybe background checks on the selected hopefuls? Or, is Wellstar having a look at the students interested in the Marietta program? What could it be? Something must have changed from how they did things last year b/c the letters were mailed at the end of May last year.:smackingf

    I work at Kennestone hospital and couldn't get any information from them or from Georgia Highlands about the Marietta program. I have been so irritable waiting the past few weeks, my poor husband can't take much more.

    Ok's the deal.

    After my final exam today, I put on my brave girl panties, and I called the nursing department. I had to ask them a question about financial aid, but I was on the phone with the administrative secretary for a while talking. After you talk for a while, they kind of start to warm up to you. I couldn't resist! I had to ask. So, I did.

    This is what she told me. "I am working on the applications as we speak." So, I asked her if the letters might possibly be mailed out next week. She said, "Well, it probably will be the week after next, because they haven't even met yet to decide who to admit. They meet next week."

    So, according to my phone conversation with her today, she is still pulling up everybody's grades so that when the nursing admittance board meets next week, they can decide on who is admitted and who is not.

    So, I am still banging my head against the wall because we still don't have the letters....but at least I know that they aren't just holding the letters and laughing at our nervous breakdowns. I don't know why they waited so late this year, or what procedure they changed from last year.

    I know that I will still probably check the mail everyday anyway, like it is going to be there. I know that it won't be there, but it helps to keep me sane and it makes me feel like I'm doing SOMETHING!

    But hey, let's look on the bright side... Since they have waited this long to send out letters, we shouldn't be up against those people who were accepted to other nursing schools for the fall already.

    And by all means Dallas....if you figure out the secret to getting initiated into this little secret society, you let us know! :bowingpur I don't know how much more my poor husband can take of me being a grump.

    Starrdan...I don't think there is anything on the GHC website regarding the Wellstar scholarship program.

    Thank you so much for getting something out of them. Now, we just need to pray this week and pray REALLY HARD next week!!!
