    Hi, I've been reading some of your posts and was wondering if you could tell me-when you say that it gets tough during 'check offs' and some people can't take it, what do you mean by that? Can you give me an example of the check offs? I'm just trying to figure out if I'll be able to hack it or not!! Did you have to give any presentations? Thanks for your help!!
    Check off's are simply skill evaluations. You have to perform a skill exactly as if it were the real thing and also, you have to remember all the steps and information in case your instructor asks questions, and that's why they are so nerve wrecking. You don't get any help or hints... We do have presentations every once in a while. Sometimes we have to work in groups and sometimes independently... I think the projects are nice. They break things up a little bit .

    Hey!

    Things are going well for me... I have like all A's except one B. I still have time to turn that B into an A though lol... School is going great. What's suffering for me are my relationships and my health. I've gained weight, gotten sick a handful of times, and I miss my husband and my girls terribly . I feel like everything revolves around nursing school!!! I am counting down the days until graduation (August 25th, 2011). After I graduate, I'm going on a vacation with my husband somewhere warm and tropical and he's buying me a boob job/tummy tuck lol. That's my graduation present and what's motivation to keep going... Terrible huh?? I'm excited to get back into the work force... It's going to be awesome to have a career and a good income. I can't wait to spoil my family <3.

    So how are things going for you??

    Hi I just started Lincoln Tech program in Hamden, CT (this is my second week). Are you going days or nights? I am in the night program and will say that it is tough! I can't imagine being in the heavier course load of the day program, it's a 12 month as opposed to my program which is 22 months. You have to keep up on the reading and homework or you will fall behind badly. I had to make adjustments to my work schedule so I have fewer hours just to accommodate school, I didn't realize the effect it was going to have on me. Not trying to scare you, just know that you will have to make some sacrifices, but in the end I think it's well worth it. Good Luck in your program
