@blk2b1g- I'm not sure of how soon graduates are hired, that may be something you could ask an advisor about. I have clinicals at Hurley this semester, and I have come across a lot of new grads who were hired after graduating from U of M Flint in December. You probably can't be picky, but I'm sure the jobs will be out there, especially by the time we graduate.
@Josette19- the hours for our second semester (this semester) are crazy! We have 3 clinical days, and a full day of lecture, in addition to lots of reading, projects, and care plans. For an example, my schedule is Monday and Tuesday 7-3pm, Wednesday 8:30-3pm, Thursday 1-9:30pm, and I have Fri, Sat, Sun off. Our summer sounds like it will be very busy, but we do not get to sign up for classes until about a week or two before the semesters begin, so planning things such as work or day care can be very difficult to do in advance. I probably am not the best to give advice about kids, because I do not have kids, but I don't think I could do the program with a baby right now. There are lots of students in my program with kids, and I don't know how they do it all, they are awesome. But I know they are all extremely busy, even if their kids are older. Try talking to current nursing students with kids, but personally, I think it would be really hard unless you have a lot of support or dependable child care.
@MelBell2005- For the CHM 252 requirement, I am pretty sure you can use an organic and biochem class. I took mine at Washtenaw Community College, I forget the course number, but it the title was organic biochemistry. For PSY 313, it is developmental psych. Since you have both, they'll look at your developmental psych grade. To double check about any questions, I'd definitely try speaking with an advisor! I took my nutrition at U of M Ann Arbor for my first degree, but that didn't transfer to U of M Flint! I got a phone call last July, telling me my nutrition class didn't transer and luckily was able to sign up for it online before the class filled up. I don't know why it took that long for someone to catch that, but I guess I should have double checked before I took it the first time. The advisors are very helpful though, so I'd check with them just in case.
Hope this all helps!
