Hoping to start nursing school Summer 2010!

  1. I think that would be in approx 2-3 years from now MissIt, LOL. I have to finish my ASN, then transfer to the uni for the BSN, then it's like the 3rd or 4th semester I think. I don't know if I can hold out that long. Thanks for your replies, I appreciate it.
  2. Just wanted to add, my grades are good, so that's not a problem. I read things about immunization clinics, breastfeeding support, WIC, education, disease prevention, and those things appeal to me. Can I work in those areas without a nursing degree? One of the universities near me offers a BS in community health with a minor in health education. Would that be helpful in a field like public health? That BS in comm health leads into a MPH.
  3. Gosh I hope so, because right now I'm strongly considering quitting and just pursuing public health (non-nursing) or OT or anything else. I hate the paperwork, but I guess any job will have that. I hate the incredible amount of anxiety I have every single day. I hate feeling like I'm going to kill someone by making a mistake, or they will code and I won't know what to do. I hate care plans (who doesn't?) I like being able to help people. I like making a positive difference, and when my patients thank me and compliment me, it makes me feel good. I like having a medical knowledge base that could help my family in an emergency-type of situation. I like having contact with people of diverse backgrounds. I guess I'm wondering will I like public health nursing any better, or do I need to try something else? Because even the thought of working bedside to get a few years of experience makes me sick. This is only my first semester and I feel like I'm going to have a nervous breakdown. Any feedback is appreciated, because I need to make a decision really soon.

    The HESI we just took today - what did we need to make on it?

    FSCJ/FCCJ point system/withdrawing

    Pick up the application packet from the school, and it will explain everything. Basically you figure points for your grades for your pre-req classes - # of credit hours x grade (A=4, B=3, etc.). Then you take the NAT and your points are multiplied by a percent. Add the NAT with your grades and those are your application points. Withdrawing doesn't matter when applying to this program, they only look at the pre-req classes you have passed.

    melt, congrats on doing well on the NAT! FSCJ doesn't recognize + or - on the grades. A B+ counts as a B. 202 is definitely good. :)

    It's just 90 days. If anyone would like to buy the prep book for the NAT, please PM me. I didn't use it, but maybe you will find it helpful.

    I seem to remember them saying do NOT contact any of the hospitals, that they will find out.

    Anyone know if we can use a digital watch, or does it have to be the regular kind?

    I really like the idea that we'll be the same group (24 of us) throughout the entire program.
