    Any Spring 2011 IUPUI Accelerated Applicants??

    Yep! You can go to the VA! Our program has been known for switching things up last minute, but it's all good. You will see me at the orientation, I do all of them for ABSN! Hope to see you! And please ask more questions, I will answer what I can.

    Oh and one last piece of advice....DON'T plan anything the first six weeks of summer! Med/surg in the summer is a feeling I can't explain and you will possibly want to quit nursing school all together, but don't! lol! It was pure hell and my classmates and I studied everyday, all day!

    I will tell you that I went to VA for fundamentals and we were turning circles around our classmates. So your location does have something to do with it. I originally choose Wishard and it changed to the VA last minute. Honestly, I did more at the VA than I did at Methodist for my med/surg I clinicals. Good Luck!

    IUPUI vs. Oklahoma City

    IUPUI will give you loans and you can also sign up for $15,000 scholarship to work 2 years at IU Health or $10,000 for Community Health and commit 2 or 3 years. You just have to fill out that paper I told you about that we all completed.

    Study hard and remember don't plan anything the first six weeks of summer! It will be the hardest time of your life! Also use time mgmt and just do what you have to.

    IUPUI vs. Oklahoma City

    We all got hit with that this past summer. You are okay, just fill out a form and take it to the advising office (nursing) and in two weeks, you are approved. Your loan limits are based on how much you borrowed from your prev degree. You will be fine if you have money left, I don't so I've been working hard to pay it off. They have the IU health scholarship, student nursing jobs and IUSON scholarships you can apply for. Hope this helps! The program is pretty cool and it goes by fast! I started Jan 2011 and will be done in the summer.

    I attend the accelerated program at IUPUI and I would say weigh out the pros and cons for each school. Take EVERYTHING into account and you'll be fine!

    Incredibly Easy Books

    Love these books! I just put down ECG Made Incredibly Easy, as I have my cardiac test on Tues. I also use the RN NCLEX Made Incredibly Easy for every test. They are good books to use instead of the "official" book. I always use my outside books to study for my NS tests and I am on a ROLL! :)

    We use HA as headache....
  13. I would have used my RN NCLEX book earlier in med/surg and received my A, like I deserve!

    You know you are a Nursing student when...

    Your boyfriend breaks up with you! *starts singing, "so what, I'm still a rock star and got my rock moves and I don't need you!" (Pink)* Your kid only says to you, "Mom are you about to study? Mom are you studying? Mom why aren't you studying?" You pots and pans gather rust on them No one even expects to see you during holidays Eating out is a luxury When you have notecards ready at any given moment to begin a session (store, bball game, date, etc.)
