I've been reading for a few days and thought I'd introduce myself.
I'm 31, married with one son and am taking some courses at my local cc in preparations of applying to the evening ADN program in July.
Right now I'm taking Computer Lit online (required in the program but not a pre-req), Human Dev. Across The Lifespan online (also required but not a pre-req), Basic Math fast-track 1st 8wks everyday 9:30-11 (needed a refresher) and Beginning Algebra (pre-req) fast-track 2nd 8wks everyday as well. Next semester I'll be taking Chemistry which is a pre-req. I already have my 2 English's, Gen. Psycology, Sociology & Gov't. I took Accounting about 10 years ago (under a different major) and didn't do well, so I plan on retaking that next semester to raise my GPA as well as perhaps Microbiology. Not sure about the 2 sciences together though. Once I get into the program (crossing fingers!) I'll need A&P 1&2, Microbiology if I don't take it next sem., Pharmacology & of course the actual Nursing Interventions.
At my college there is no waiting list. They take 30 applicants and if you don't get chosen you have to retake the test in 6 months. I plan on applying for the LPN courses at the technical college if I don't get in next fall.
We also run a business out of our home. We have a state licensed daycare. Dh is here with me fulltime and takes over when I'm at school and studying. DS goes to preschool everyday 1-4, which coincides with the daycare kids nap
Whew, I think that's about it! I'm looking forward to getting to know you guys and I'll probably be full of questions the further into this I get.
