    More dangerous: Navy or Army

    I know everyone does, but do not forget about the Coast Guard as a great option. Semper Paratus

    Current Nursing student looking for a mentor

    Yes Maine sure is a big place!! Sorry to clarify I go to school in Lewiston and also live in the area. I do travel quite a bit to the Portland area as well. I appreciate the reply! I honestly was not expecting to get a resonce as the "Maine" section is not to active!
  4. Hello everyone, I'm currently nursing student in my first year. I was wondering if there was anyone local that wouldn't mind being a mentor. I'm just looking for guidance from someone who has "been there and seen that". I'm not overly needy just looking for someone to check in with every once in a while. I hope to hear from you soon!!

    First Semester down!!

    Hello, Some of you may have read my other posts from when I was applying / taking the Hesi exam. I finished the first semester of my 2+1 year program. Things went great. My grades were better than I thought they would of been (only because I did poorly back in 2002). Who would of thought if you actually show up and do the work you can get good grades. As a single father with 50/50 custody I'm doing this for my children, to better their lives and our total financial picture/ total life quality. That being said I have an ex-wife who does not support me going back to school (and I don't mean $$ wise). I wanted to go back to school for nursing for about 10 years and she didn't support "my stupid dream" when we were married either so this is not new news to me. The point of my post is...... there is a way....and if you are doubting it.... or others are doubting you....just keep your head up and let them think whatever they want to think or say. I'm told at least 2 times a week....how terrible a person I'am and a bad father and I should stay in my dead end....paycheck to paycheck job (by ex wife). However I know in my own head.... I'm making this happen.... I'm continuing to provide for my children and still create amazing memories with them along the way. I know I'm only one semester down but I figured if I'm in this situation I can't be alone. The future is there and its coming with or without growth.... I plan on the latter!!

    Maine College of Health Professions Nursing Fall 2017

    Well I heard from my school today. I feel very happy and kinda bummed at the same time. They did not reject me but did not accept me either. The offered a spot in the Pre Health (general ed classes) and if I can meet the required grades and a min. of 12 credits I will be guaranteed a spot in the nursing program the following year. I'm bummed because I would prefer just going to school and gaining my RN in 2 years.....This will make it 3 years.(just like everyone I have life to pay for and my 3 children to provide for) I'm excited because they saw the drive and the potential I have to be successful even with a long gap since being in school and not doing well when I was so young and dumb. :) I know this is similar to going through the CC and doing the general ed classes first. Has anyone done anything like this? What was your experience like? Any feed back you could give I would appreciate.

    Maine College of Health Professions Nursing Fall 2017

    This next month or so is going to be a month of torture. It has only been six day since taking my HESI and submitting my completed application for early acceptance. I'm already driving my self nuts with checking on the Sonis web portal to see if there is any changes (says- Level :Pre-Entry) . I need something to keep my mind off it for the next few weeks hahaha. I hope to hear either way sooner than later. They told me I would know before the end of Feb. Que the Jeopardy theme song

    Well my HESI A2 exam is tomorrow

    WOW Great Scores! Congrats! Also great input on the different sections. That is what I was aiming for as far as scores but oh well! At my testing facility there was no timer or clock anywhere on the screen or even the wall. I'm lucky that I still wear a watch. It is interesting to see the difference between different tests.

    Well my HESI A2 exam is tomorrow

    Most of the type of questions asked I outlined above. I would really recommend that you read each question more than once because they do try and trip you up on the wording. They offer plenty of time to complete the whole test. Especially if they do not require the sciences. The sciences were the hardest sections for me. Everything else came down to knowing the basics.

    I have taken my HESI A2 entrance, and submitted my application for early acceptance. Now it is just a waiting game. Admissions office told me I would hear by the end of Feb. I can not wait to hear either way. I will be checking everyday online to see if there is a change in my status. I will give an update!
