    3.9 GPA, cant pass Nursing school tests!???

    Do you have test anxiety by chance?? I know I do and that got me into trouble my first term until I got it under control. I would over analzye EVERYTHING or I would be so nervous that I would literally ignore a very important word in the question that would just through me completely off. I know it's hard, I've struggled myself. Does your program have one person that can spend time with you and help you with test taking ideas? For me I need to read each question at least twice, circle the important points and prioritize. I now wear earplugs and sit in the back for each exam. I'm almost the last one finished each exam but it's helped A LOT. Hang in there, you'll get through it. It's a totally different world I know.

    Need experience

    I have a break over the summer and am looking to apply to ANY job our local hospital has open! I just worry with my workload if I'll be able to do it with clinicals and everything. Will they typically work around a school schedule??

    Oh my gosh Nora I'm so sorry about your husband!!! That must have so hard to deal with!!! That's great to hear though that Linfield's faculty was so understanding. I'm not sure how they couldn't be though with that situation, although I'm sure some aren't nearly as nice. Everyone there has been wonderful since my first visit to inquire about the program. I think I'll feel much better after the first day of orientation, it's just the apprehension I think that's the worst, lol!!! I look forward to meet you at Starbucks!!!!

    taz5869 - Yes I'll drive up early Monday morning. For the first term since we'll only have class M/W/F I'll probably drive home Wednesday night and just haul up and back on Friday. It'll be rough but don't really have a choice ya know!? Luckily I really like the apartment I got, it's just a small studio but it's really cute and in a great area. Plus I'll bring my cat(s) up with me for some comfort. I figure I can do anything for 18months! My mentor actually is doing the same thing so it helped to talk to her. SD22 - I've heard St John's is a great area!!! Will you be living with anyone or know anyone in the area?

    SD22 - Where are moving to? I currently live in Eugene with my husband but during the week I'll be living in the Nob Hill Apartments about 3 blocks from campus.

    I'd love to meet you all that morning!!! That'll definitely make us feel better....we can also do lunch the second day as it says lunch is on our own If anyone wants to get together that week before we start I'd be happy to as well. I live in Eugene but am more than happy to come up to Portland for the day! jess76 - when I got the large amount of paperwork there was a form to submit to get a mentor. Mine actually lives here in Eugene and is commuting like I am (come up on Monday and go home on Friday) so I was able to meet her in person and she helped a lot! Can't wait to meet you all! Terri

    caireid - I'm finishing my prereqs now too so I feel your pain! I'm not sure when we can expect the questions, I just know that the professor is supposed to e-mail us before school starts. I checked Linfield's website and unfortunately there's no syllabus up yet either for Nursing 103. We'll have to have an "allnurses.com" meet-up

    Just got it for $3.23!! Thanks. I heard from my mentor that the professor will send us some focus questions and it helps to wait until we have those questions to read. Apparently we'll have to write a couple of short papers on them. The book sounds interesting! Anyone else getting really nervous since it's so close?

    Also, I'm trying to find the Life Support book by Susan Gordan online. Is the full title "Life Support Three Nurses on the Frontlines"? Thanks!

    Hi everyone! I'm so glad that I found this link as I'm starting in the summer cohort too and am soooo nervous:eek: I'm glad to hear though that we don't need scrubs on the first day, for some reason I really thought we did. I'd like to know what books we need so I can order the Life Support one now. Has anyone done that yet? I will be living about 4 minutes from campus (I got an apartment right off NW 23rd) so I'll always invite people over for study groups and stress relieving pow-wows I can't wait to meet you all!!!!
  13. The cost is about $50K give or take some depending upon where you want to live (on or off campus). The ABSN program at Linfield is 18mths. The only accelerated programs I personally know of in Oregon are Linfield and OHSU. OHSU's program is about the same cost and is a few months shorter but much more intense.

    Definitely apply to both to increase your chance of acceptance! I'm actually starting next month for the accelerated and am a nervous wreck...but sooo happy to have gotten in. I would call them if you have any questions, they were extremely helpful whenever I called!
  15. Thank you barleynhops!! That helps ease me just a bit, lol. Did you have any trouble getting the private loan? I'm worried about having to get a cosigner as I know my parents would not cosign for me. So are you currently in the program? If so, how do you like it so far? ....and do you live alone or with roomates. Just wondering as I currently live in Eugene and will be moving. Thanks in advance!
