    School Advice

    ]Hi Everyone.. I need some advice. What works for you when you study for Pharm and Fundamentals? I'm currently learning Cardiovascular Agents for drugs in pharm and there's a lot to cover. How about Fundamentals? What works for you? Please please give me what works for you. I'd love to hear your ideas so I can change up my studies a little so I can improve.. I need it! Thanks if you reply.

    Rolling luggage as 'back pack' Haha

    Hi Everyone, So I just want to get your opinion. I think it's so crazy that everyone in my class uses a rolling luggage as a backpack. I've never in my mind thought it'd be me, but apparently my books are heavy so I ended up searching for one and found a 21" rolling upright luggage for my new backpack to lug my back breaking books in!! Anyone else think this 21" luggage is too big?! I can't find anything smaller at the stores!

    MATC petition process for Jan 09 students

    Hi MooMollly88, Your grades and NLN score is good. I think that's the first thing you need to get done before petitioning. Just so you know, Milwaukee Area Tech doesn't waitlist anymore. They have a petition process, so this means if you want to get into 'clinical' or take the core classes, then you will have to petition. You fill out the application and finish all the health requirements. Then submit it. MATC will notify you by mail if you've been selected for the upcoming semester core classes. I'm not sure what you mean by getting 'pulled off' the second shot of petitioning? But if you don't get in after the 1st time of petitioning, then you will just have to reapply to get into the next semester of the core classes. MATC has specific petitioning window dates too. Hope this helps! :)

    LPN Program at MATC

    Hi nursemabelle, I have too! Just found out not to long ago as an alternate! I'm very excited, but very disappointed as well because MATC won't let us register until Jan 18th. I believe this is the actual day before classes begin! I'm so anxious to find out more! Congrats to you!

    MATC petition process for Jan 09 students

    Hi ktreiter, You said you got accepted to Milwaukee Area Tech LPN Clinicals for Spring 2011? I was actually denied acceptance, but just got called in for a spot as it became available.. I haven't been given any information at all. I was wondering if you already registered for classes and clinicals? What are the majority of the class/clinical times? And are you also attending the orientation on January 18th?

    New LPN students, roll call, Jan 2011, 12 month program!

    Hi Christine2009, Thank you so much for your advice. I was going to ask the same question as wanttobnurse also. I'm also a mom of 1, married and pursuing a nursing degree but starting out with LPN clinicals. I start this month! I currently work 40 hours and will be lowering the number of hours so I can focus on my studies. I guess the scary part is not knowing what its like, what to expect. Believe me, I'm only expecting the worst. But I am eagar and excited as well. To wanttobnurse, I'd say find a balance. I have bills to pay, a family to take care of as well, but Christine2009 is right. If you want it bad enough, it can work. I'm sure you will find a way to make it work. Good luck to you both! :)

    Hi Everyone! I'm so excited to say I am starting this Spring 2011 January too! I lost all hopes! I applied and received a letter of rejection.. but was told I'd be placed on a list in case a spot comes open. Happy to say, they called me yesterday at work and was offered if I wanted to accept, I did! I'm excited, nervous and scared. I'm going to lower my work hours to focus on my studies. I can't believe this is really happening! Good luck to everyone in their studies! Any advice for me?????
