    Hello all I am rather new to this I got the news yesterday I will start my pre-nursing classes January 3rd although I don't know how all of this fincial aide works exactly. I found out i was approved for the pell grant only for 933 a quarter though and my tuition way exceeds that have applied for a student loan but what else is there it seems to me that there has to be more options than just that. anyone that has been down this road and can give me some tip please feel free to help me thank you all so much

    It seems to me as thought the Aides don't want to be bothered with going in and checking the pt on their 2 hour rotation (at least that is the rotation I have always known) I personally would have to set them straight if they began to get hostile or mouthy simply because you would not get an order for a foley and let them know just who it is that went to school and who knows when a foley cath is appropriate . :-)

    AS far as it being a law I dont think so (but I have been known to be wrong hehe) I fell as though it is only helpful to the nurse because you can better relate to your aides and also know when they are blowing smoke up your behind! some aides can be pretty sneaky to get out of doing things hehe

    Spring sounds good to me! things are so crazy around here (of course the holidays always are!) btw I took a big step and sent in my application to the technical college for the RN program I am so excited and nervous all at the same time! My dream finally I am taking steps to work towards it!

    WOW there are people from this area!! I am so glad iam not the only one hehehe. Well I have been so indecisive about wich route I want to take. At first I thought that I wanted to go to the technical college for the lpn program but I found out that their waiting list for it is 3YEARS! I amost fell out of my chair! Then I comsidered going to a vocational school for the lpn program. and finally I have thought about the technical college for the RN program. Do you thik that it is normal for the waiting lists to be this long???

    Well thank you so much!!! somedays I fell like "just a nurse aide" But as a very wise nurse once told me "you are the foundation of this feild" always said that if it were not for us these people would be in a world of trouble and as far as the people that do the job I used to think that people were just in it for a paycheck but that cant be so as little as the nurse aide end of it pays its sad but true

    Jane I am fairly new to this as I am a pre-nursing student but I can tell you as a male I have never been one to shed many tears. I did quite a bit at the age of 19 when my dad passed and after reading this incredibly touching story it brought several tears to my eyes. I hope you dont mind but I would very much like the permission to print this story off just to show to the others that I work with. you are an amazing woman with a big heart and love for everyone in your life. you have my deepest symathies best of luck to you at putting the peices of your life back together. and for what it is worth and I know it will be tough please try and have a happy holiday season I know it will be hard maybe one of the hardest times of the year but as you know many of the people here are here to listen and talk if you need anything as well as your family. **hats off to you for your courage**

    its seems so many of us have the same answer Cedar point is actually one of my favorite ohio destination! I visited 6 flags while I was in texas over the summer and it is nothing compared to the vast variety that cedar point offers check it out if you have not already wow what a treat!

    the way it seems is a lot of the ltc facilities have stopped doing the classes only because of the astronomical rate of people that take the classes and quit on them threfore really losing out on the money in the end the best advice I can think of is try to contact you local adult education schools and see if they might offer the class I know they do here in mansfield so I am sure they would in a bigger city

    I am a pre-nursing student excited and nervous all at the same time. My passion has always been nursing so if there are people out there that have a problem with males in the nursing field I guess there really isn't much they can do about it. I ask would you rather have a female that hates her choice of being a nurse or a male that has a true passion for the feild (wich goes the same with any field) I would rather have someone with the passion and desire to be there and to help other rather than someone that would rather not be there at all.
