I got my acceptance back in the beginning of November for this fall (2011) . I just gave them my deposit today to hold my place in the program! I am SO excited!! I can't wait to get the necessary paperwork and find out what I need to do (background check, immunization proof, etc.). But it feels like FOREVER before I'm actually going to start there! I feel like I'm inbetween, like I'm not pre-nursing anymore but I'm not in the actual nursing classes yet, lol...(btw,when do/did you change that status on here?).
I have stalked the schools website, reading/re-reading the program/course descriptions, tried looking up the books I'll be needing...you name it I've searched for it, haha. Not to mention the many hours I've spent an allnurses reading through threads about preparing for ns and what the must haves are, which then lead me to compile a list of these necessities, lol. I even went as far as to go to websites and pick out exactly what watch, stethoscope, backpack, planner, etc. that I want! (I know, I'm a little obsessive )
So who else is with me?! Has anyone else already gotten acceptance for the fall and now has the looong wait to actually start? What are you gonna do in the mean time?
I am a mother of two little girls (3 and 1.5) so they will surely keep me busy! I am also going to continue to take classes at the CC in hopes of starting as a sophomore (BSN program).
