    I plan to take only my nursing courses

    with the typical dropout/fail rate being appx 50% I refuse to be in that number!

    NURSING over everything whoop!

    But if you have the confidence, will, and discipline.. Go for it! Who can stop you?

    The first semester of nursing is as follows:
    7 Hrs.-class per week (2-days)
    6 hours of lab per week
    6 hours of clinical (4 hours to asses) per week
    at least 15 hours of study time per week
    that is equal to 38 hours per week
    These were from notes that I took and the info session that I attended.

    Oh, and no letter for me. Anyone a member of Phi Thetta Kappa? With the grades we have to get, I expect some are. I hope to get more involved. I have heard it can benefit to have some involvement on your resume.

    I am taking some courses now that are required to get RN to BSN over at WSSU. They were very helpful and advised me which classes to start taking at FTCC. It might end up being cheaper to take some at FTCC than at WSSU.

    I looked at the schedule for the 1st nur class...looks like class 3 mornings a week and 2 afternoons then clinical one day a week if I remember correctly. I am pretty sure that is how it was laid out. So say your lecture days are mon and wed you would have lecture then like a 2 hour break then lab those 2 days...lecture in the am on say Tues and clinicals either thurs or fri. I work weekends only so will probably just stay with no extra classes.

    I didn't get anything in the mail yet? I hope we all get acceptance letters. At least one of us has to. If you get one let us know so the rest of us can have a good cry until next deadline.

    I really believe most of us will get letters...I cannot imagine 160 ^ would not unless something went weird and points did not get applied correctly. I feel like I am stalking my mailbox lolol
