Students General Students


This is what our instructor kept telling up sporadically during our orientation today!!!!. There was so much information to take in, absorb, write down....I feel a little overwhelmed, but nontheless I am very excited and ready to take on the challenge. My CC accepted 95 people for Fall 2004 out of 400+ applicants....according to my instructor we are among the elite...we are the best that our CC has to offer. I have to admit it felt good to hear... :). One of the highlights of our day was we changed our curriculum codes together. She passed out the curriculum code sheets and we officially went from pre-nursing to nursing felt so good.... We have a 300 page syllabus that we have to purchase for $15, inside the syllabus is our book list. I was happy to hear that most of the books that we purchase will be utilized through most of our 2 yr. program....which is absolutely great!!!! I met a lot of people, there were almost as much of men as there were women...which I was glad to see. I was able to get a great schedule...I'm taking my first nursing course, Micro, Medical Calculations and aerobics....I hope I don't pass had to take it to meet my 12 credit requirement to recieve my entire Pell Grant. I also ordered 2 sets of uniforms, they weren't as bad as I thought that they would look. We have to wear white jacket w/school emblem (it's hunter green and white) and hunter green shirt...the fabric is very scratchy feeling though, I'm going to have to find something to soften the fabric a bit. All in all it was a trying day.....the lines, etc. But I'm really looking forward to nursing school. I have to get really, really, really organized. With a dh and 4 children, it's going to be really trying, I can do it.... I'm graduating May 16, 2006!!!!

on your transition from pre-nursing to nursing. You seem extremely organized. That is a good Nursing Quality. See, you've got what it takes to be an R.N. Things are going to get a bit wacky, especially during your first semester until you accustom yourself to nursing lectures and clinicals.

It's great that you said: "Graduating May 16, 2006". That shows great CONFIDENCE. Another quality of an R.N. {LOL} Make sure you never lose your Will to continue your nursing education.

I wish you the very best on these 2 challenging years.

I am also a graduate from a CC. I made it, you can too!
