    Hi, I'm on my way to clinical now, but I'll be happy to answer when I get home later. I remember the anxiety of knowing nothing when first starting this journey all too well!

    breakups & nursing school

    I'm sorry about your breakup. It will be hard at times, and the anxiety is not fun to deal with, but yes, I think you can definitely do it, and you will. Have faith. A 4.5 year relationship breakup isn't something to scoff at, and leaving your dog (dog lover, have 3:) has to be heartbreak on top of heartbreak. As the ex-wife of an airborne infantry soldier that deployed once to Iraq for a year, and once to Afghanistan for another year, I will say that our breakup and divorce was harder than the deployments. Both are frightening & painful, both hurt, both test your strength and resolve, but in two very different ways. I kept going during the deployments...I fell apart and dealt with a lot of anxiety and depression during my seperation and subsequent divorce. You're entitled to feel your feelings and worry about how it may impact your education. Breakups are tough. I know. Hang in there. Hopefully, by the time classes start, you'll be a little more grounded and your heart will be on the mend. It takes time. It comes in waves. You will get through it and you will be stronger for it. School will help keep your mind focused on a different direction. Best of luck to you. Chin up!

    They have a new point system; the advisor you spoke with may not have know that as this was the first year it was implemented. I was told at the drop-in that with the new system, 12-14 points should be competitive, but I'd try for the higher end of that to be on the safe side. I had 16 pts. and a 3.75 gpa. I'd say with 15-17 points, you're definitely looking good!

    Male Student in OB Rotation

    Don't give up hope. I had nursing students in the room for 2 out of 3 of my deliveries, and while there were no male students, I would have been perfectly fine with them if there were. By the time I was ready to deliver, I wouldn't have cared if a news team was in there with me, I just wanted it over! Hopefully you'll get a been-there-done-that mom before your rotation is over. The nursing students I had in the room with me (I think there were 5 each time) were fantastic and I had a great time with them. Hang in there and good luck in your OB rotation.

    I'm not sure if we received the same packet since you're doing accelerated and I'm traditional, however, incase they are different, here is the info from my packet: It must be either of these 2 courses: CPR for Health Care Providers or CPR for Professional Rescuers. Check the American Heart Association website and the American Red Cross websites. They'll list dates/times/places of these specific courses and hopefully you can find something closer. If you have trouble accessing the info, let me know and I'll look it up and try to post it here for you.

    HCC offers healthcare provider CPR as a continuing education class. It's usually on a weekend and runs approximately 8 hours.

    I received mine today. We have until April 14th to respond. I was told that after that date, when all of the responses are in, they'll start going down the list calling others for open seats.

    Mine says fall - don't panic mzo, people often apply to more than one school and not everyone takes a spot, so something may open up for you in the accelerated program. Is everyone as nervous and excited as I am?!

    Harford CC Fall 2017

    Just checked mine and it changed to Nursing (RN), too!!!! Praying we get confirmation letters this weekend or early next week to be sure, but I'd say if your status has changed, you're in! �� And I thought I was nervous before! Now the real panic starts! Hoping everyone gets good news!
