I started back in December. My first semester is almost over (another month or so). TIME MANAGEMENT which you will hear a hundred times. If you get behind it's like a rolling snowball out of control! Other than that - I enjoy it so far. Not crazy about the long term care rotation, but I am trying to look at it like I can learn from any situation even though it might not be my favorite. :)

Well were do I start...nervous & excited at the same. This is a HUGE transition. I left my job of over 6 years to go back to school full-time. This is only 1 of 2 LPN progams in the area and they only accept 20 students at a time! I feel so blessed to have been chosen. No stop'n me now!

Good luck everyone!
