    OMG no way!!!! That is the floor i got the job in!! 7W: Oncology. What postion did you interview for?!! and when was this?! how awesome would that be!? if we worked together. I am not 100% about the program just know if you work at lahey you can get into the program faster at MCC because lahey has a certain amount of seats in the clinicals reserved for their employees. I will let you know when I find out more. I will be very upset if I dont get in for fall2010.. ill prob call again soon ha. I need that letter now.....

    He is one of the teachers, yes. How is he? I am not afraid of hard work or studying.

    I think he is a really good prof. His tests of mult choice but dont let that fool you they are hard. If you study though you will be good. I liked his labs. I would def. recommand him.

    Also- Erindel .. I Have already recieved two letters from MCC saying that I have been accepted and put on the waitlist!! this next on needs to say I have a start day or ill cry.

That would of been awesome if we did work together tho... what shift are u working? I need days. Did u say u got the letter already??! U were accepted? That's great!!! U don't know if its for 2010 tho? Did u get it today? Oh man maybe mine is coming soon then. Fingers crossed. When do u start working at lahey? Are u a cna ? Yea I would like to know more about that program b/t lahey and mcc. Hey if I get that job, maybe we could bump into eachother at lahey.....

    No, I ment I have received two letters on two different occasions saying I have been accepted and put on the wait list for the next semester! So I'm really hoping this next leter gives me my start date and comes ASAP!! I got a job as a unit coordinator. They mentioned training me over the summer for a cna postion also so well see! I'm pumped to get into a hospital!! Did you interview at the lahey in burlington? Have you been on there website , I feel like I have seen a lot of cna job postings on there!

    Ohhh I thought u got the offical letter with a start date!! Well maybe its on its way.. the nurse admissions person called me yesterday to say I'm all set and on the wait list. Don't know what the context of that was, but I won't relax until that silly letter arrives. I do look at laheys website a lot. They do have a lot of nursing assistants and clinic assistants, which is what I appied for. I also applied for the er tech position at lahey peabody since that is closer to where I live. The unit tech position sounds good. They can cross train u on the floor which is good. When did u get those other letters? Oh man I can't wait!

    Thats awesome you are applying to Lahey, let me know how that goes. I dont even remeber when I got them.. the first was prob. around March.. when my app. was comp. and then the other was in the summer saying Jan. is full and I am on the waitlist for Fall2010..... So hopefully this one will have some better news, well seeeee. Have you have any interviews for CNA jobs? goodluck w. that also.

    I apply for medical assistant positions cuz I am registered as one. I worked on a medsurg floor as a patient care tech which is similiar to a cna but they can do a little more than a cna. I don't actually have my cna license tho. I love working on the hospital units better than a clinic or office setting. I bet since u got that letter saying this jan class was full then u will get into next fall class. No doubt! I will let u know if and when I hear from lahey again. Let me know bout that program b/t lahey and mcc when u find out. Thanks!

I am so excited for u.... congrats and finally u can call yourself a student nurse to-be!! Let me know any info u find out. When can u get ur books? Sorry I'm asking so many ?s. I'm pysched for u. How is ur new job going at lahey? Well congrats again and I will talk to u soon

    Thank you so much! I am so happy & excited, I can't even describe. Orientation is in May! It doesn't say anything about uniforms & such.. I am sure we will find things like that out at the orinetation. I am also not sure about when we can get our books, im assuming after we regisered for our classes. I will let you know when I find out more info about the ACTUALLY PROGRAM. The letter came in a big envelope and you have to return a form accepting your spot within 2 weeks, send in a copy of HS dipolma, get CPR cert. by March 12th, complete student health form by Jun & attend an the "registration meeting" in May. yaayah. Can't wait to find out everything & enroll in nur classes finallly.
    Do you know of any good financial aid resources? I am looking to apply to some/any!.. Thanks ... Today was my last day of orientation at the hospital. It was a longg week, filled with a lot of info. I am excited to start training! (: Any luck with the job search for you? I know its tough right now.

    Subsidized loans are good to use. I used loans from sallie mae which is a good student loan lender. Also mcc has scholarships for nursing students as well so check that out. You may be able to get ur cpr cert through lahey since u are an employee there now. It has to be bls healthcare provider level. I'm glad u are doing well with ur job. I'm sure there was a lot of info to learn. That would be great to become a tech on your floor as well. That will come in handy for nursing school. Will you be working full time when you start school? I have not heard back from lahey or any other hospital I have applied to. It is definitely rough trying to find a healthcare job now. I will keep the search up tho... u must be wishing it was may already so u can have ur orientation. How exciting! What classes are you taking this spring semester? Medical terminology is always a good class to take. I took that at mcc a few years ago. It was helpful and real easy.

    Thank You, I will have to look into those loans.. Right , I am going to try to do CRP through Lahey. I know they offer it once a month or something. I will be working 32 hours now but once school starts in fall ill prob do 20 or something. Hopefully I will be able too w.out going crazy ha.. I am not taking any classes spring semester, I just finished Microbio today..which was my last non nur class. So im just going to work until FALLL. Are you taking Micro anytime soon? Goodluck w the job search hope it comes through for ya!
