    plzz plzz plzz DO TELL.. how was the process was it long & tough?? did you study for the entrace exam?? Did your classes start yet?? Thats where I want to go
  3. Okay so yesterday I took the skills portion of my midterm.. its 3 skills they give you and I haven't gotten my grade back but I'm sure I failed 1...One of the skills was to do nail care to right hand and I did the LEFT!!! I haven't failed anything yet and of all things I mess up on my midterm..it makes me wonder if I will be a good nurse since I can't even make it in cna class..Has this happen to any of you?? Today is the written part which I'm not too worried about but I couldn't sleep just thinkin about the skill I may have failed.

    LPN to RN Classes: My Experience

    Okay soo 2 years for pre reqs and then try to get into rn school?? Is that how it goes because I figured if I take classes during the summer it would be a little shorter. When you finish with school you will have an adn rigght? And then your going back for bsn or is that what your working towards now?? Just a tad confused not much lol Thanks for answering all my questions not many people do that. You would be a good teacher and wow what a change in career!!! CONGRATS TO YOU Its been a tough road but your family must be so proud of you. PS: I'm shy also and become anxious at times

    LPN to RN Classes: My Experience

    Wow that gives me hope she was a c student and now is such a good nurse!!!You seem like a great person most people strive for perfection but who ever gets there??:) And I agree with you on wanting to know the real answer to somthing instead of just the definition that way you really understand it. I too would also like a bsn and then msn just because it opens soo many doors that having an adn may not.. What was stressful for you though that made you seek therapy?? Was it way hard? How are your teachers?

    LPN to RN Classes: My Experience

    I personally already love this thread!!! Being from long island and reading from your point of views is great.. If you both could do it over again would you go straight for your adn or would you still get your lpn license first? Thats pretty much the point I'm stuck at:bluecry1: In total how long will it take you to become an rn?? I'm 23 and pretty much have my mind set on being an rn by 29 lol:chuckle soo what I do day by day is read post so that I can get an idea.. ANY ADVICE YOU GUYS??

    Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center

    WOW.. my mom has worked there since before i was born i think shes at 40 years lol .. She loves it and now that I'm 23 I've realized nursing is what I want to do and when I'm done with school Memorial Sloan Kettering is my first choice. Do you think in about 5 years I will able to work there since she maybe retired by then?? And will it help that shes been there for so long? I might be able sooner if they accept adns
