    I have always been the kind of person who doesnt really study and when I do it is always in an oversized chair or on the couch in my living room. I got accepted into a nursing program that starts next month and I need a dedicated study space. When i was doing pre-reqs i spent hours hunched over my books on the couch and it didnt work well for me. I work at an office supply store so with my discount and a gift card I should be able to get a very nice small student desk for about $50 dollars. Will having a dedicated study desk help me in school?

    I got accepted into a 9 month LPN program that starts early next month and I am EXTREMELY nervous. I have made lists of all the basic school supplies that I'll need (I happen to work part time in an office supply store lol) and all books are included in the tuition so I guess we will get them on the first day.

    I am really anxious to get started so I was wondering if anybody has any suggestions of some books that I could read or of any supplies I should buy ahead of time. Or should i wait until after the first day of class and see what they supply for us?

    I went for a CPR course yesterday because I am starting a nine month full time LPN program next month. When I went to talk to financial aid and see how much my financial aid was going to cover she asked me if I had worked in a hospital setting before and when I said no she looked horrified and told me that "this is going to be a very hard year for you" and then asked me if "I realized how much studying is involved."

    This is a very competitive school that only takes 20 students and the people that interviewed me knew ahead of time that I have no medical background. I realize that nursing school is hard and I feel like I am prepared for it. Why would somebody try to discourage a student from attending their school?

    It really shook my confidence and I have been doubting myself every since. I graduated high school in 2011 and have been doing pre-requisites every since so I have a pretty good grasp on the human body and pharmacology skills. I am not denying that the next year will probably be the hardest of my life but this is what I want to do with my life.

    One of the instructors came into the room while I was there and she was very friendly and said how excited she was to be my instructor and asked if I was ready for class to start. Why was the financial aid lady so rude? Shouldnt you encourage students to be excited to attend your school?
