Anyone starting Deaconess in January 2005?

  1. Hi after learning about Deaconess on this discussion board, I applied and got in for January 2005. So- I am wondering if anyone out there took the leap as well? Now that I am in the program, I am going to start looking for a clinical site for the second semester. Luckily, it will be summer, and since I am a teacher, I will have the flexibility to complete the hours, as well as travel to Missouri. I am sure the third semester will be challenging since I will be working.


    I would appreciate information from anyone as far as transferring in credits, etc. I am planning to take the general education courses at either CCC online or Rio Salado.

    Anyway, I look forward to hearing from any of my "classmates" out there.

    Well, hello there classmate! I'm Heather, nice to meet you! Pm me anytime, I'm starting with Deaconess this month, too. My situation is a little different, since I am living in Germany. What sections are you in??

    *snoopy dance* I am so excited to know a classmate on the boards! :hatparty:

    Here's to a great year!!

    Hi gonnanurse and welcome! Not a new DCN student but willing to help along the way if I can.

    If there is one suggestion I would offer, get a carton of printer paper and an ink cartridge too if you plan to print the course contents. I know, DCN says that's not necessary but I can't always have my computer in front of me when I have a few minutes to read so I print the course contents to tote along. Dang, for the $$ of the program I have suggested they print them for us but that suggestion was not well received!

    Good luck and pm me if I can help.

    Welcome aboard gonnanurse! Get ready for a wild ride. LOL
    I would be happy to answer any questions.

    ps I also suggested that a print copy of the course content be provided. It is way too time consuming trying to print out the course content.

    To both Gonnanurse & Dharma:

    Welcome to DCN! Hope you are both ready for a great learning experience!

    I will be starting my second semester this January and I am so excited!

    Hi gonnanurse

    Welcome! I will graduate from Deaconess in July. It has been an awesome experience. Whether or not the course content was printed out had no bearing on the great education I got. I worked with it. I'm happy to have been able to become an RN, doing it online. There are trade-offs.

    If you have any questions, please PM me.
