    @fibroblast @Kahalaukane I will always be willing to help, it's just how I am. @Mix1990 that's not a bad idea to get someone else to ensure you're not doing it alone. I'm sorry to hear about your back problems.

    @barcode120x , sucks that you tend to get the heavy patients. I'm 5'3, 160....of the muscle that you cut off of the steak in order to remove the fat. Lol. I've got some muscle, but a definite dad-bod. @hypnotizer90, is it ola thing you can tell over experience? If a person is a "two person patient", or is it something a prior nurse should tell you? I'm not trying to hurt my back either.

    So far I haven't heard of anyone getting notifications today at all.....here or on the Facebook page. I wonder what's going on.

    Don't lose hope, there are still three rounds of acceptance to go. Keep your head up.

    Good response! That actually makes me feel a lot better about being me. Sucks about your friend and I hope he recovers quickly. Thanks hard hands! It's what I needed to hear.

    Hey everyone, I'm pretty new to these boards, and I'm hoping to be accepted into nursing school starting this fall...anyway, on to my question(s). I am 37 years old, 12 year veteran of the US Air Force (intelligence), and former BMW technician....and I'm 5'3, 155lbs, so this is my third profession. Do any of you short guys get any grief for being a nurse? Do other nurses assume you can't lift a patient or are less of a man because of your height? I always see the bigger dudes saying they are "the muscle" because they are big and strong and get asked all the time to help with patients. I may be short but I am stronger than I look. I am a kind-hearted person, and it really sucks when someone mistakes my kindness for weakness. Idk, I'm usually very confident in myself, but this has been running through my mind lately. Story time from you experienced shorties please!

    If I'm not mistaken, it should be about 2 and a half more weeks. From what I've seen so far, I'm at a good median score.....I've seen some higher and some lower. I knew there were 100 seats for the program, do you mean 100 MORE seats were added? So far, so good! Passed micro (C) and psych (B).....got my A&P 102 final tomorrow (today) and I have a solid B+. Assuming I don't get a zero on it, all of my prereqs AND co-reqs are done and I can concentrate on only the NRSG classes for the entire program! I haven't bought a stethoscope yet, but I am getting super antsy about selection!
