Good News!

  1. :hatparty: I'm so proud I'm about to explode! I just finished my very first semester of college....and I got straight As!!!! 4.0! I know it's only a small step towards becoming a nurse, but it's the first one! I graduated high school over 10 years ago, so starting college was a scary thought. I'm so proud I did it! And my children and husband make a wonderful cheerleading section!

    From what I've read on this site, I need to keep that 4.0 to better my chances of getting into a good nursing school! I'll try my hardest!

    Just had to share my joy!

    Congrats, Miranda!!

    It is an awesome feeling!! I just finished my second semester with a 4.0 I also graduated high school 12 years ago and was unsure if I could do it.
    I could not have done it without an understanding husband and supportive family and friends. Plus one Awesome babysitter!! Make sure to thank all your supporters. I'm baking everyone cookies now that the semester is over.

    Cheers to you and keep up the great work!

    I just finished this semester with a 4.0 as well. I took Nutrition, Microbiology and Anatomy & Physiology I Lab. I work full time during the day so I am extra proud. Last semester I only took the Anatomy & Physiology I lecture to see how it was going to go with with working full time and I got an A. So two semesters in a row! Hopefully I can keep it up as this summer I am taking Anatomy & Physiology II lab & lecture!

    Congrats to everyone who did so well!

    Congrats...it's a great feeling to know you can do so well, isn't it!?!?!??!?!?

    I took A&P I by itself at first, and with setting the curves with all A's test grades I decided to add a Dev. Psych telecourse with it. I really only planned on making a B in the Psych class because I knew I had to maintain my A in A&P.

    I actually managed to make an A in both classes! It really is a great feeling! (I graduated high school in 1991....14 years ago. I have been in and out off college, but didn't do so well my first semester right out of high school. ... A - B - B - D -D) Determination, and maturity goes a long way!!!!! (although some may beg to differ about the maturity part! )
