    Parents will kick me out if I don't drop my nursing dreams...

    First off, shame on your parents for not being supportive! As a mom what I want most in life to to see my kids happy, I would hope all parents want the same, but I guess not! Sorry, but I'm angry for you! Anyway, tell them you are joining the military, maybe that will be enough to snap them out of their ********? Also, I'm assuming you are female (sorry if I'm wrong) but I know some that work as live in nannies for families and they go to school and on their time off they babysit and live in the house with the family. It provides a place to live plus a job and time to go to school. My friend has a girl living with her so she can go off to work as a midwife at any hour of the night, then the nanny's job is to get the kids off to school and then she goes off to school herself. Anyway, it's an idea. I do think the military is a GREAT option for you, I think I might have done this had I not got married and had kids at 20. Also, if you went away to school where you lived in a dorm, using loans and paying what you can plus scholarships, would they allow you home on weekends/breaks/summers? Maybe just going away to college and living in a dorm is an option? Anyway, good luck hun, I'm sorry your parents are making your life so difficult. Though being a doctor isn't a bad option, maybe consider it?

    When do nursing programs do drug tests?

    First week, most clinical placements require it. I would just be ready to be drug tested any time.

    Chamberlain bought out by Adtalem

    Interesting, I just started and my on-line classes are through DeVry, so I wonder if next session will be different.

    Charlotte Campus?

    Hello! I've been considering Chamberlain College but avoiding it because of the price. However I have all my pre-reqs done since I was in a program a few years ago, this should cut down on the cost. I was wondering if anyone attends this campus and can tell me the good bad and ugly about it? Where do yall get placed for clinical? Thanks for any advice I can get!

    Queens University Summer 2017 Start

    It sounds like maybe nursing wasn't for you, but I know people who GO to Queens and they love it...so I'm not sure how bad it can be if many students I've talked with love it.

    Anyone use ECPI to get there LPN? I'm looking into the Charlotte campus to get my LPN. Then I plan to work part time or whatever and do an on-line LPN to RN program. Having kids I feel like this is my best option. ECPI has a schedule I can work with my family, unlike the other programs in my area. Anyone ever take this route? Any ECPI students here? Thanks!

    Keiser Melbourne

    Can anyone tell me when they schedule your clinical times for at Keiser in Melbourne, FL? The lady on the phone from admissions told me afternoons, and I need afternoon or evening, not early mornings because of kids and hubby's schedule. Anyone know? Anyone go to this school? Thanks!
