    I have four courses left NC3-6. I will be testing on NC7 at the end of January. I completed all of my prereq's at my local CC where I continue to take courses every semester that will apply to a bachelor's degree later. I will be starting spring semester on Monday and am enrolled in American history from 1877-present and Greek and Roman humanities. I have maintained a 4.0 in the 36+ general courses taken traditionally--I can verify that EC tests are challanging--It certainly takes devotion and plenty of self motivation. I chose EC for a number of reasons--none of which include not being accepted to my local CC ( my GPA speaks for itself) but primarily not wanting to put my 2 year old in childcare all day. I also have 8 years of LPN experience in a variety of settings--a necessity I think is needed to do the EC program. Congrats to you, as you are close to completions Good luck as continue on!!!!

    Congrats to you, too Kim! It sounds like you have a plan!

    Let me know if you need any study aids- I have Lisa's Notes, SETH tests, plus a whole bunch of practice quizzes and other stuff for every exam except NC7 at the moment- I'm putting it together as we speak...lol.

    (((Sending passing vibes your way)))

    Good luck on your exam!

    Well said, Kim!

    Remember the phrase "nurses eat their young"? I think that the negativity is just one more example of that! What cannibals we can be. It seems some of us have difficulties accepting changes in tradition and have big appetites for new nurses! How wonderful it would be if we could all support each other with our endeavors.
