I'm Kimberly. Married and also a first time mom. I am currently unsure of what career path I'd like to choose, so I'm here to get advice from anyone who would like to help me figure out what might be best for me. I always enjoy making new friends (: If you prefer to email me you can at mrskrobbins@yahoo.com

    Advice!

    How high of a math class do you have to take? I'm only going off of what I hear from people, and some people have gotten me discouraged like I couldn't do it because of the math part. I definitely don't want to be held back, I really want to do it!

    Advice!

    Okay, so long story short, I was accepted into college last year, and right before it was time for me to go, I had to withdrawal. Now that I am ready to apply again, I am not sure I still want to do the same thing I was going to go for last year. I'm having a lot of trouble deciding on a career path!! Someone please help with this!? Also, I live in South Carolina, and was wondering if anyone else is here, or from here, and can help me decide on a decent college? And is online or on campus the better option? I'm sorry this is so long and has so many questions, but these are not small decisions. I would really appreciate anyone who can help me come up with a solution to my problems. As for the career advice goes, I was looking into being a registered nurse, but I'm one of the worst people at math and I really don't think I am qualified to do this one just yet. I want something else, with a low math requirement, that I can use to get my foot into the door so to say, but will also be something that is in demand and not a dead end like i have seen with some people. I was thinking medical coding? Or maybe a nursing assistant? Still really unsure. Any and all advice is welcome!! Feel free to email me if you prefer. mrskrobbins@yahoo.com

    Okay, thanks everyone. I can't speak with anyone until orientation, so I'll talk to them about if when I go. If I do have to pay for the vaccines, what is the price range I'm looking at? Maybe I can do something to earn a little extra cash & pay for the vaccines and it not affect me.

    I don't have a dr , or dentist, or anything where I could go to a clinic for screenings or vaccines, and I don't have money to just go because the school requires it, so what do I do?
  6. Wow hun, I'm so sorry that happened. I just made a call about 20 minutes ago to volunteer at the local hospital also, and I really hope my experience is not like yours. Maybe you should try a different hospital, or another low key doctors or patients care? Maybe the people you were volunteering for aren't exactly professional, they sound a bit rude to me! I'm starting Pre Nursing in August, so I know how to feel about being overwhelmed and the need to write things down. Besides when you volunteer you're supposed to be aloud to write things down. Kind of odd how they acted if you ask me. Good luck at the next place you apply to though and let us know how it goes, if you do.

    Presentation Fear

    For those who do not know, I'm about to start pre nursing in August, only taking pre reqs for now. But I am scared to death of public speaking!! Especially with such a big class, I use to skip high school because of this issue. I've never over came it, I've only avoided. I want to know how to stop being scared! How do I stop worrying about people's opinion of my speaking and remembering what I'm even supposed to say. Skipping is definitely no option!

    Pre nursing or cna?

    Alright, that sounds ideal to me, nope I can't take both unfortunately, I definitely would! I'll go through with Pre Nursing and then maybe if the offer is still there later on, I'll take the CNA class

    Pre nursing or cna?

    Thank you all for your input, and to be completely honest I am not sure if my school requires it, I doubt it because I wasn't told it was a requirement before signing up for the class. Here's my issue, and why I was asking I live in South Carolina. I'm in a financial help program that helps make me employable, teaches me skills, and things like that. I've applied to Midlands Tech College for the Pre Nursing class in August which I have orientation for on Monday. && The financial program I'm in is asking me NOT to take Pre Nursing, but they're asking me to take their CNA class instead (which they have offered to pay for at least 1 semester.) My financial aid pays for most of my Pre Nursing class though. So money isn't the problem just because I'm poor enough my financial aid covered me, as sad as that is lol.. but that's why I'm asking.. should I cancel my plans into Pre Nursing and go with the CNA? Or should I tell them no thank you & keep moving?

    Being told to take a cna class before pre nursing? What is your thoughts on this & why or why not?

    I'm definitely going to be spending time with friends and family! School is going to take a lot out of me, I heard you have to be fully dedicated to the courses and can't miss a day, or you'll miss too much to succeed, and I don't want that. And yes I almost forgot the amounts of reading and homework I'll soon have.. lol. Make a little overwhelming to think about, but I'm sure I'll do fine.. Just nerve racking!

    Thank you for the advice! I've definitely been hearing I'll be needing a lot of sleep, and be studying quite a lot. I'm so nervous for college it's crazy lol.. but I want to succeed so I'm sure my motivation will kick in, along with many cappuccinos to come! Lol

    I was actually not aware I had to get vaccinations, but does make sense lol.. and how do I find out where the books are that I will need? I haven't been given much insight on everything as you can see lol.. partly the reason I made this account. For more information. I'd like to get ahead and order books also. Oh and by the way, I had to sign up for my orientation, they didn't inform me, I just had to go on the school site and apply, maybe yours is the same? \

    I just got accepted in school, I am going for orientation Monday morning (June 24 2013) I start August 26th. I wanted to know if anyone could give me some advice before I attend orientation? Also, what is your background story on wanting to become a nurse? I don't have a deep heartthrob story, I just enjoy working with people and helping others, I thought this would be a great job for me.
