:balloons: Congratulations! :balloons:
That's GREAT news!
Good Luck! :)
i have a pda, and swear by the thing. honestly, to me now, it's as important as my stethoscope - no joking! and everyone - everyone - in my clinical borrows it, including the instructor. i have taber's and davis drug guide, plus a "generic" nursing dx handbook on it. all 3 are worth their weight in gold.
i got a pricey one, but i know there are a lot cheaper (read: less expensive, not cheap!) ones to be found. i just fell in love with mine (a tungsten t3) since i knew i wanted a palm instead of win, and i liked the slide-to-expand screen. there are some that do everything but your homework (but those would be nice too!).
CONGRATULATIONS! We're all proud of you. We wish you the best of luck too!

Congratulations on your acceptance. It's an exciting day. Be prepared for everything from elation to fear just before that first clinical. It's all normal, and all healthy and good.
Yes on the PDA. While others are thumbing through the drug guide looking for their drug, I key mine in and I'm there instantly. It's a real time saver. I've had mine since first semester. It's catching on. Three out of 10 students in my clinical group have one. I've got my drug guide, lab guide, medical encyclopedia and other utilities all one one handy compact tool. For lecture, I attach a wireless keyboard and quietly type my notes in Word to interface with my desktop computer.
I started in Spring 2004 and will graduate December 2005. Still seems like a long way off but it goes fast. You sure about your graduation date?
Thanks for all the well wishes. I was accepted into an ADN, however I have an AA from a 4 year university but could not get accepted there. They take 48 out of 600. I am pretty sure of the date of graduation. I know it is a 16 month program and we do not get off for summer. So if I start in Jan and go nonstop thru May then thats 16 months. But everyone has me worried...is this too short? I have done all my pre-reqs so all the classes are nursing classes. Let me know if you all still think this is fast.
If you don't take time out for the summers and go straight through, it makes sense. At our school, summer off is not an option. They close up shop.
