    January 7th is a day we shall all remember in years to come!!! Good Luck everyone, and be sure to post your progress once in a while during the next year. We probably won't have much time to chat, but it will be interesting to hear how you're all doing. We are all like a long-distnace classroom here on allnurses!

    We have 4-5 weeks off during the summer... that will be a welcome break for sure!! Then we start back in August, just like the school year for the kids. Classes end in Dec. Seems like a looooooooooooooooooong way away today, but it is going to fly by I am told.

    Congrats! I have been a LVN since 1988... Back in school for RN because absolutely no one hires LVNs anymore!!!!! It would be worth it to just do your RN! I sure do wish I had!!

    Hi! Yes I was sitting in front . its not allowing me to message you back cause i havent posted 15 topics. lol im still new to this whole allnurses website. I live on Travis AFB. Yes I have been an MA for 7 years. I'm hoping some things come easy as well. My commute takes about 10-15 minutes from base so I'm pretty close too. I would love to meet for coffee. When is a good time for you?

    Oh wow you're really close! I don't work so anytime is good for me too. Are you going to work while going to school? Which day did you choose for your long day? I chose Thursday. I'm excited and nervous. Ready to get going but hoping I can get thru it all lol. Did you get your white shoes and everything?

    Hi guys. I am in LVN school, only 2 months left! Wooooo hoooooo. I was an MA 1st. It will DEFINITELY help! Mostly because of all of the medical terminology and root words that you have learned. Also, the A&P you learned will be kind of like an overview. Good luck to u guys! Enjoy the process. And when it gets tough, remember WHY you want to become a nurse.
