    I'm also taking Microbio this semester, but at Truman. How was your Microbio at Wright? I took one semester at Wright College, but I have to say, I like the Truman Science dept more due to greater selection and real nice science faculties. I'm nervous about starting the nursing program this fall. I'm going for evening orientation in May. How about your guys?

    I love Prof. Herzog at Wright! He really is a great teacher. My orientation is in the day. Will you be attending Truman's day nursing program? Since you're at Truman now, do you happen to know what the options are for teachers for Nursing 101?

    Wright has an amazing science department. My Micro teacher is one of the heads of the department. I never toook a class at Truman yet so I cant compare though. I definetly think Wright is the nicest CCC overall though. I am super excited about the nursing program and already bought a stethascope and a bunch of "preparing for nursing school" books! I have morning orientation in May.

    Wow, that is so cool that you bought a stethascope! I'm going to go buy one too now!!! I hadn't thought about any preparation books on nursing school, glad you wrote that cause I'm shopping for that this weekend too! Good luck to you in the program and with Prof. Herzog's class.

    Did you bring a computer to class everyday??? Or were you sitting in the second row with glasses and dark brown hair always talking to the blonde girl in polish..lol. I know one of those people had to be you....I am sooooo glad that class is over, I thought his tests were so hard it was rediculous!!!! I agree though, I think he is a great teacher, he just demands alot, which I appreciate.

    Hi gonnabeanurse11,

    No, I sat in the 2nd row (2nd to the right) on the opposite side of where the lab assistant worked (in the back room). Anyway....I need your advise....I've been accepted into both Truman's & Wright's (LPN) program and (pls don't say i'm nuts to not know what to do) I don't know which one to go to. With Wright's, I can work in 1 yr (provided I pass) and since Truman doesn't offer the LPN (which I think is nuts!) I can't work for 2 years. The economy's so bad, I'm not sure I can last for 2 yrs. The problem is, Since Wright just started their bridging of LPN students into their RN program, I'm afraid since the program is so new, it may not be the greatest to get one prepared to take the NCLEX. I certainly don't want to throw away the opportunity to Truman because I have read so many awesome things about their program. What do you think? Hope to hear from you soon!

    Oh, I know who you are, you asked the teacher about aquiring allergies later in life on the second to last day..lol. I sat right behind you at #8 with Erin!! I think that if I were you, I would take the opportunity to go to Truman as opposed to going to Wright because I would be worried that I wouldnt be guaranteed entrance into an RN program when I finished. And you can work! You can get a job as a student nurse(intern) at any of the resurrection facilities in the city after you complete one semester of the program. Once you complete one semester, you can be hired as a CNA without actually being one or as a student nurse. If you are a student, you get paid more the a CNA, I think they start at about $15 an hour. I also dont know if Wright is to be trusted for the NCLEX either, and Im sure they are not accredited yet. Truman has an amazing pass rate and I feel completely confident that I will be prepared to pass if I go there. Just my opinion....

    Yes, that was me
    You are so awesome! Thanks for the reassurance! I had no idea that one can work in a hospital while in a nursing program (even if you're not a cna). Thank you for the advise. I am definitely going with Truman. I guess I'll see you on the 27th! Thank you again.

    Your welcome! Oh and I mean I sat at #12, 8 was my lab number in anatomy...lol. Look at the website for resurrection and you will see posts for CNA's and under requirements it says "CNA licensure or completion of one semester of an RN program will be accepted in place of licensure" something along those lines...in addition to those there are posts for the student nurse positions, which I hear are the same accept the nurses try to call you when they are about to perform procedures so that you can watch! Thats the first thing Im going to do once the first semester is over even though I already have a full time job, I think the experience will be priceless. I CAN NOT WAIT till the 27th!!!!

    Thanks again! I found student nursing positions for Rush & Children's Memorial. I am so thankful you mentioned this. This is the first time I've been at peace with knowing that Truman is the way to go. Take care & have a good summer! I've enrolled in an online medical terminology class through Truman this summer, other than that, I'll be hanging out with my kiddies before our 1st big day!
