    How far is too far for pre-reqs?

    Thx!! I am taking a 1 day class and it happens to meet on Sunday mornings - so here's to hopefully no traffic and a nice quiet ride there and back!

    I'm down by NCC but am registered for pre-reqs at NVCC. Looks like it will take me a good 52 minutes to get to NVCC from where I am, but that's the only place offering chemistry that works with my schedule. Crazy or doable?

    Working while in nursing school?

    Thank you. I"m in retail management right now... so I guess as I get closer and actually attending nursing school becomes a sure thing, I could take my local CNA course? I would not be able to do my current job and go to ns - that's a definite....

    Working while in nursing school?

    I know this is an old thread but thank you for your responses! Those who worked during NS (full time/benefits) what kind of jobs did you do? Nursing assistants, other?

    Working while in nursing school?

    Looking to quell some of my anxiety prior to pursuing nursing whole heartedly. What can i do for money/benefits while in nursing school? I'm married with two kiddos and i carry our health benefits (hubby is self employed). The nursing program I'm looking at is day only, but not all day every day. I would have to bring in some money and preferably also health insurance. I'm in CT and should mention I'lol be 40 next year - so of course age is on my mind as well.... thanks!

    Going Back at 40 years old...

    I'm 38 and after 20 years in retail management I'm returning to cc this fall to work on pre reqs. If all goes well ill start the ADN program when I'm 40. I was pursuing this years ago, but the timing wasn't right. Now my kids will be a little older and hopefully by the time I'm enrolled our finances will be more stable as well since I'll have to stop working (or get a job as a nursing assistant). Yikes! Exciting and scary all at once but trying to not get ahead of myself. Have to pass all those science classes first!

    Hmmm....interesting! I could try that...

    Ok. More advice. If I were to retake Chem now (fall) what do I tell my boss so that I can get out of work early without raising red flags that I'm looking for a career change?

    Opinion please!!

    I passed Chem with flying colors but it was more than 10 years ago so it expired. Hence the need for a retake.

    Opinion please!!

    Hey all. I have to retake Chem before applying to a cc nursing program but here's my conundrum. I was hoping Chem would be offered at one of the two schools near me on Sundays as it has been in the past and it's not. A&P 1 is offered Sunday however. Should I just go ahead with A&P since it works into my schedule and then retake Chem over the summer or would this be a terrible idea? Many thanks. H

    Anyone know how sciences work with the CC in CT?

    Actually - I know Chem expires bc I have to retake it. I took it close to 10 years ago. Biology? I think as long as you've taken it it counts. Biology per se is not an actual requirement for the nursing program - but is a pre-req for the pre-reqs. Call an advisor and check.

    Is it normal to be nervous about becoming a nurse?

    Worrying will get you no where. It's useless! Turn those worry butterflies into excited butterflies! Start thinking of obstacles and scary situations as challenges and opportunities to grow. I've been the queen of worry for the past 20ish years and, hence, still work for the same employer since I was in high school. But I've decided to change my way of thinking and go for it. It's all in your mind set!
  15. I think if you're retaking pre-reqs to improve your GPA...I can't really see how that would affect you negatively. If anything it shows how badly you want this. Think of it this way -- low grades won't help your chances, so why not just go for it? My school literally just plugs everyone's stats into a spreadsheet and the top however many get offered a seat.
