    Well I am at triangle apartments and its 480 a month for a 1 bedroom 730sq feet, you just have to make less than 38,300 a year, but its a very nice place, a lot of elderly people live here so its a nice quiet community. Its in St. Peters by 364 if that gives you a idea, that is the cheapest/safe/nicest place I could find in the area.

    We are more than half way through the summer! Are we ready fellow St. Charles nursing students? I do my CPR renewal on Tuesday and I think I'm good to go....
    Are any of you taking the Tools for Success class? I'm taking it afternoon times in August, I figured it couldn't hurt anyway...
    Hope you find a place soon ydbush30! Even if you pay a lil more rent than you do now, you will definitely save $ in gas with gas prices the way they are.
    TideBeckons, I did not know that was the grading scale for nursing, but it makes sense. I'm (almost) ready for the challenge ahead....

    for all of you who know me as tidebeckons, you can call me Liz

    paramedical, I know what you mean... August will be just around the corner just like that. Still trying to recover A&P material that I lost somewhere at work, but I've many other materials that I've been looking over here and there. It's not too much of an issue.

    I am taking the Tools class in early August afternoons, too. I'm sure it will be informative and helpful. Going to take a trip with my husband the week before so we can unwind and just take it easy before I return to school. haven't done any such thing since before our daughter was born.

    Hey guys! I'm excited too. I'm taking that Nursing Tools class tomorrow! I can't wait to see what they have to say. I'm also gonna take a little trip before classes start too. I feel like i need to relax and rewind before classes start I can't wait to meet you guys in the fall.

    a trip is a great way to unwind. My husband and I just got back from a little weekend getaway in Nashville (no kids!) and it was wonderful. I hope the nursing tools class is helpful, let me know what you think about it ydbush30. Maybe I will meet you at the Nursing Tools class in August Liz. (Btw, my names Nichole)

    So today was the first day of the Nursing Tools class. I thought it was kind of awesome. It kind of made me think of things i would never have thought of. This program is gonna be NO JOKE! You have to make sure you have all kinds of backups in place so that you don't miss class. We are already talking about critical thinking and everything. I love it. I can't wait to hear what you guys think of it.

    Wow, I'm glad to hear the tools for success class is good! I was afraid I was wasting my money but I'm glad it's worth it. I'm taking my class the beginning of aug in the early mornings..yay! I'm excited that I finally made the program, now i'm afraid I won't be able to make it through the next two years! I think it's definitly important to form study groups during school.. you can really learn a lot that way, plus it's a good way to get support as well. We all know the next two years will be really tough! Good luck to everyone! I'm sure we will all run into each other at one point or another! My name is Sara Has anyone bought their uniforms yet?

    Abounding luck to you, too copegirl. I think it would be a great thing to form study groups, as well. Once semester sets in and we get to know one another, we can start thinking about doign that. this site is very helpful, already have had the pleasure of meeting some of you.

    I have not bought my uniform yet. I am thinking you don't need it until clinicals in September, but will be buying mine in early August more than likely. Will have to see.

    that's funny Liz, it was our first time to Nashville, we loved it and I want to go back although I think it will be at least 2 years now that school starts next month lol. I actually was able to get one uniform at school (used) after the last mandatory meeting but I want to buy another too. Study groups sound great once school starts. Looking forward to meeting you all!
