    Applying to RN Programs this year...I feel lost.

    I don't know what your financial situation is, but I was able to have my application fees waved when I applied to Fresno and Stanislaus. Have you looked into that?

    Fundamentals Success 2nd edition vs 3rd edition

    My school library offers the PDF version for free. Maybe yours does, too?

    Pharmacology - best way to learn

    Some people have said this has been helpful. Also, you could probably try the made incredibly easy series... http://www.amazon.com/Mosbys-Pharmacology-Memory-NoteCards-Mnemonic/dp/0323078001/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1377725523&sr=8-1&keywords=mosbys+pharmacology+memory+notecards

    BSN Programs in CA? HELPP

    There is an ELM program currently in progress. But, according to Fresno's website, they're no longer accepting applications right now due to a shortage of nursing faculty.

    First year student in the wheelchair

    Maybe you should think about waiting a semester. That way you can focus on the healing part first.
  6. I don't have private loans, but I do get federal loans. In addition to grants and scholarships, I receive about $9000/year in subsidized/unsubsidized loans. They get paid out once a semester. I'm in a BSN program, btw. When I did my prereqs at the local community college, loans weren't offered.
  7. I didn't have any trouble getting into my BSN program. I finished my prereqs at a community college Spring 2012, and then started my program at a CSU the following semester. So I think it just depends on the university.
  8. I don't know about the schools around you, but the schools here don't allow retakes for grades higher than a C.
  9. I did my prereqs and general ed at a CC, then transferred to Fresno State, where I got in to their BSN program right away. There was no waiting around for me.

    What is your program's late-work policy?

    I'm in a BSN program (about to start 3rd semester), and so far, late work has not been accepted. Neither is the option to just 'not' turn something in.

    Labtop or ipad for nursing school?????

    Get a laptop. You can't write care plans on an ipad. At least, I haven't been able to.

    I took physiology and microbiology at the same time, along with nutrition, and I aced all 3 classes. It can be done if you're determined enough.

    School supplies?!

    Definitely Get a dry erase board! It makes practicing med math a lot funner!

    Selling books on Amazon...

    Instead of selling it back to Amazon, sell it on Amazon Marketplace. That's what I did with some of my textbooks after this last semester.

    Will First Offender keep me out of nursing?

    Have you looked into getting it expunged? You will still have to disclose it to the BON but it may help you.
