    LPN clinical schedule.....this seems like alot!

    the 11 month program i'm in presently, started clinical the 8th week. since then clinical days are 3 days a week (wed-fri) at one facility, for 6weeks. then go to new facility 3 days a week for another 6 weeks then change again.

    Friends and nursing school

    I tend to agree with SandyCadet, I thought I had found one or two close friends, but I was wrong. I too found out just before Christmas break. Ironically enough, my situation was also confirmed as we are on break. It's sad to say, but I too have decided to go 'solo' through the next half of school. My priority is to get the education I'm paying for. Period! I'm not paying to make friends.

    So just how intense is it?

    Anjieleelee, Just wanted to let you know that 'The Commuter' & 'pagandeva' know whereof they speak!!! I have just completed my 5th week of LPN school. There has not been a day since I started that I studied less than 2 hours. That includes weekends! Average study time for me is 2-3 hours. More if needed. As far as the house work--let it go!! I usually don't even do dishes all week. I get caught up with laundry & dishes, etc. on the weekend. No, you do not have to be extremely 'smart' to get through the program. However, determination is a priority. As well as time management/organization. Is the program intense? YES! Can you do it? YES! It's all up to you.

    Seeking a buddy..( LPN student)

    hello, just now reading this post for the first time. i too, could be your buddy. i'm 49 and started my lpn program 3 1/2 weeks ago. i'm not married presently but do have a daughter. i hadn't been in a classroom in 30 years. i had test anxiety just taking the net!!!! i'm not usually on allnurses during the week. simply because i need to stay on track with my reading assignments, etc. i usually check in on this site on fri, sat & sun. occasionally if workload is light i will jump on here & check things out. i'm in an 11 month program. i'm more than willing to encourage & give support. well....and maybe even get some in return. best of luck as you begin your journey.

  15. godsgift2, it's funny you should mention having a test the first day. because actually we were suppose to. guess we got lucky!?! :wink2: best of luck to you. it sounds like you are off to a good start.
  16. dconnors, i just started my program wed. of this week. the last three days have been a whirlwind to say the least!!! all i can say is get ready for the ride of your life. i'm normally on allnurses a few times a day. this is the first i could even think about it since tues night. i'm serious. i've been in school now for 3 days & have had a quiz on day 2 & day 3. lots of reading homework that started on day one. also have participated in 3 'group' projects' per day that are also graded. oh yeah, lectures!!!please, please, please, do not let this frighten you in any way. because, so far it has been exciting, rewarding, scary, fun & interesting all at the same time. i have another quiz on mon. & an exam on tues.!!!! my advice: buckle your seat belt for the ride!!! sorry this is so long. best of luck to you! let us know how it goes:)
