    Possibly moving to Charlotte, NC

    Thanks for the feedback I will definitely look at Novant Health and Rowan. Thank you for giving me a heads up for areas to avoid while looking for where I want to live. I have been looking at the new grads positions it still says spring graduates, and I don't graduate until September. I assuming they will be posting a fall graduates soon so I will keep on the look out for it. I been looking at what the city has to offer, I plan to make a trip down to Charlotte this summer to look around. Thanks again!
  2. Hello, I am graduating my ADN program soon, and I just want a fresh start in a new city. Can anyone suggest hospitals that hire ADN new grads? Any reasonable and safe areas you can suggest would be great too. I plan on making a trip to Charlotte to look around and get a feel for the area but I am pretty sure this is where I want to be. Any advice you can give to point me in the right direction would be so much appreciated! Nursn4me
  3. I know trying to determine what is needed to different nursing programs vs courses you have already taken can be a headache. I would suggest first deciding which school you would like to attend for nursing. Then choose a second and third choice for good measure. If you need chemistry take a chemistry class at a local community college and keep focused to ace that class. It may mean you wouldn't start at the college of your choice for a semester but it would put you on the right path to fulfilling your plans to be a nurse. I am assuming you are in a dual enrollment program where some of the classes you are taking now does apply to your college major? good luck!

    best sleep aid before I resort to a hammer?

    I haven't gotten to the point you are but I see this in the very near future. I currently work part time 6-230pm. I start nursing school on the 24th and seriously considering night shift so I can study during downtimes but I don't see how my body will be able to handle going straight to school after work, then sleep in the middle of the day. i already have a sleeping problem, I tried the super melatonin too but it didn't do anything I was exhausted. I have a prescription for ambien really doesn't give me a full nite sleep. Maybe you can inquire with your doctor about restoril? I think that's the name advertised as helping falling asleep and staying asleep for a good night rest. good luck!

    Ok Class of 2017, Where are you??

    How are you studying? With so much material that are covered per exam/quiz that's what scares me the most.

    Hello All, Late to this thread but nevertheless, glad I found it! I start nursing school on the 28th, but orientation is on the 24th. I am a ball of hot mess. I quit my job to pursue what i had started years ago. I am so nervous questioning if I can do this, am I smart enough to get thru the rigors of the program. I am in it to win it, and I hoping to graduate Oct 2017!!!! I love reading how the first few weeks are progressing for some of you keep the updates coming :)
  9. Yeah but I believe for those who would need the prereqs of chem, math or computer class would need to register for the next class which is in January because they have already start the chem prerequisites for the Oct 08 class. They are currently taking applications for the January 09 class with prereqs scheduled to begin Sept 15. Thanks for letting everybody know who maybe interested I didn't think to do that:)

    MCI Virginia Beach!!!!

    Thanks for the heads up! I know the program will be very intense being that it is only 15 months but so worth it. I actually can't wait. I just want the chemistry class to hurry up and be done with it. I ordered a book Chemistry homework helper book it is supposed to be very good for people with no or very little chemistry background. Hopefully that will help me in addition to the chemistry notes that another MCI student provided me with. Are you in the Virginia Beach area? I am in Richmond

    Wow thanks for the heads up. I was supposed to have an interview this past friday after financial aid was done, but my admission rep told me the director stated he no longer needs to interview with me because everything is good and financial aid is on track so he didn't need to see me. I was very surprised that everything worked out with financial aid I only have to pay that $100 a month. Everything else was covered with financial aid. So now I am waiting for my first prerequisites to start. I wonder if I will have to interview after my prerequisites. So did you have two interviews? One after financial aid was done and then one after your prereqs were completed? I am trying to determine if I will still be required to interview for the program since he cancelled mine and said I was set.

    Okay so they will allow a coworker to write a reference for you? I didn't think they would. I can get a coworker to write a letter of reference for me no problem. My ex Supervisor is going to write a letter of reference too. I am thinking about calling the office manager at my old job to see if she would write a letter of reference. How soon after you turned in all that was requested did you know if you were accepted for the program?

    Thank you!!!!! I will make sure to read all my chapters. I am glad to hear there were alot of students who were accepted who did not have the medical background like my admission rep stated was a stickler. Who knows maybe she was just trying to shake me up a little. It definitely eases my mind that I should have a good chance of getting accepted provided that I do well in my prereqs. Since you have no medical background may I ask where did you get your letter of references? My previous employer will provide me a reference but my current employer I have only been on the job 2 months so I am little skeptical of asking. I am concerned about the references. Thanks again!!!!

    Maybe some of the others who are further along in the program or have graduated the program will come to chime in to this thread. I have not started yet, my chemistry class doesn't start until 9/15, but I have no prior medical experience either. I am a CNA though other than that I don't have any experience. I think if your financial aid is worked out and you do well on the prerequisites it would be hard for you NOT to get in. Just my two cents although the admission rep did tell me that the program has mostly LPNs returning for their RN in the program so if they had to pick between a person with no experience and a person who already is an LPN they would probably choose the LPN. Try not to focus on any of that, but keep focused on blowing chemistry,math, and that computer class out the water!

    Lil Bit, I have applied for the January class too. I have the chem notes I will forward them to you. I think you are in a very good position because you don't have children and you can afford to quit your job while in the program. I heard the program is tough, intense, and fast paced so I will not be working either. I do have children so it will be a challenge at times to stay focused and find quiet time for me to concentrate on my studies but I will get it done. Okay I will send the notes your way good luck!
