I'm a married 33 y/o mother of two. I'm changing my career while I'm still young and raring to go. :)

    As far as I know, they don't tell us our score. You can try to calculate it yourself using the info in the welcome packet, but I know in the past, people who ask get a raised eyebrow and are told, "You got in. It doesn't matter what your score was now." :) And your nights and weekends classes will stay nights and weekends all 4 semesters unless there's a major problem. They just don't take any first semester students nights and weekends on that rotating schedule.

    If the lab isn't showing up on your transcript, that might be a problem in the long run. They told us at orientation that if you didn't have 4 credits worth of BSC2085 or whatever that you'd have to take another class to make up the difference before you could graduate or take the NCLEX. I'd talk to the records office or an advisor to see about fixing that.

    At our orientation, they did mention something about the way they calculated classes taken at other schools, but I don't know how it would apply to your situation. I'd call the nursing office or send an email - the email is on the program website. :)

    Oh, gosh, its great that you got tapped. I hope you can find someone to switch with you.

    I was hoping to get both the hard copies and the ebooks to help with writing papers, but if its that crappy, I'll stick with the old fashioned books. I have a hard time learning from ebooks anyway. I'm going to get the rest of the books - except for rn notes - on Amazon. They're a lot cheaper, even for new.

    I was super frustrated with the people who obviously hadn't done any research about the nursing program. It seemed like some people hadn't even read the application packet! It tells you right there how much to expect to pay for your books. And honestly, expecting a business to be so kind as to print up all the information so you can take your money elsewhere, interrupting the speakers with questions, and interrupting other people... that was just rude. Still, the FNSA presentation was really good and informative. I hope Worksource has some good news for us tomorrow. And I hope to get a low number in the lottery. :)

    I'm done with everything except getting my lab results and turning everything in - I'll probably be doing that Friday. Stat-Line was out of badge holders, so I'll buy one at orientation. My shoulders are pretty sore from the flu shot and the TDAP vaccination. I really hope I don't need any more shots.

    waiting lists in Florida

    The community college I got in to doesn't have a waiting list, instead we have points values assigned to grades in your prerequisites and to the entrance exam. The 168, 144, or 96 (depending on the semester) students with the highest points get in. The only caveat to that is the residency requirement - students in that specific county get in first. If there are leftover spots, out of county students get them.

    I stopped in the worksource office yesterday and was told that if we're already receiving financial aid, they don't have any money for us at this time. She said that this may change at anytime and they'll be at orientation next week if people want to check and ask questions. If you aren't getting any financial aid, they probably have money. I didn't think to ask.

    I took the class on the North campus. It wasn't the cheapest of the choices, but it was the most convenient for me.

    The code is what you write in or print out after you buy it online. :)

    We're not supposed to post names of faculty or staff. You might want to edit her name out because we've already had a "friendly reminder" today.
