    congrats on getting in !!! i remember when i got in i couldnt breath hardly because it was my second time around trying.

    i am a 2nd semester student now. and boy...the only thing i can advice you is to hold on for the ride.its very challanging and very time demanding.especially with care plans(which u will found out later ).you will learn how to manage your time really quick, believe me. #1 advice ...get adaquate sleep and if your not working thats even better.the tests you will have on top of clinical and care plans will take up most of your time.say bye bye to your social life as well, if your really social like myself.and starbucks will be your best friend.

    i dont mean to scare you these are some survival tips i learned on my own when i started 1st semester. good luck and you will have so much fun and learn so much.

    Hey Congrats,
    I just started the LPN Progam May 31, so far it is awesome. This program is 12 months long and I think will be a great start in the nursing field. Lots of reading and studying, but when the info is interesting its not that hard to do. Would be glad to answer in specific questions you have.

    helping each other out sounds great to me. i bet we will be learning the same things at the same time.

    Hi! I will be starting a lvn program too in August. I have to admit, I too, am a little nervous. It will probably involve some new changes and adjustments but hopefully everything will work out for all the newbies. Congrats to all! Have a great day! ~829~
