    I just started my LPN course here in Portland, OR - on March 19th.

    I am entering week 5 and am going through my first round of Midterms..

    I work M-F 30 hours a week & my program is Mon-Thurs, about 4-6 hours each day.

    It is a lot of studying, but I feel that this program is setting us up to succeed - So far, I am not overwhelmed,
    as I have read many posts about people working and going through their programs / feeling pressured.

    My first term classes are:

    Pharmacology
    Medical Terminology
    A&P
    Nursing Fundamentals
    Nursing Lab

    I just finished my first week of classes and my back is a little sore from the 50 lb. of books, I've been hauling around, everywhere. My classmates are nice, and we have had a lot of fun together already. Everyone I've met from previous terms say the same thing to me, that the first few weeks are the hardest and then you find your groove, and everything falls into place. I have a calendar with the 50 weeks of the classes on it and I'm going to mark them off as I complete each week. My little countdown to finishing the program.

    Hi denii23! Congratulations on being accepted into the program! Take it easy for the next few days, once you start classes you'll be very busy, but that helps the time pass quickly. Keep us informed on how everything's going!

    I failed my teas by a few more points but that did not stop me. I recently took my c-pnet at Boces in Westchester and I am feeling positive but the math threw me in a loop.


    I hope I pass but the wait is killing me.

    Congrats on getting into ICTC! I was super excited before I started too. But I agree with MrsFutureNurse1, chill out and enjoy your summer. You probably won't have much time to enjoy the awesome weather after you start school. Take care and Good Luck!

    I've been accepted into a nursing program here in Mississippi I'm excited I've been waiting since March to hear back, because we have the longest waiting lists here. Orientation is July 9. I currently work as a CNA, so I'm trying to see if I am able to keep my job

    Hello all future nurses!!! I am scheduled to begin the LVN program July 3rd, I passed my entrance exams in the 90%'s on the first try. I am nervous and excited. I work full time but my work allows employees take off 4 hours early per week if we need to for school (paid time away by the way) so I will be working 36hrs/week and school part time. I also have 3 kids and a husband =S I'm nervous but I have put off my education long enough and right now is the perfect time to pick up where I left off. Good luck to everyone who just began and to those of us who are soon starting! BTW I am currently working as a Certified Medical Assistant and have been in the field since 2006.. hopefully all of my hands-on and exposure to the field help me get through school !!!
