I am here, there might not be any snow, but I am FREEZING! :roll

I am gearing up for semester 1 of clinicals, starts Jan 9th..just blows my mind that it is finally here!!!!! I have the nervous/excited jitters and I imagine they will only get worse. I bought a bunch of school supplies tonight, paper, pens, etc. Still have a few more things to get and need to set my study area up this weekend.

What's going on in your corner of Indiana?

I'm a Hoosier and I'm here!

Hey LoriRN2B and Whispera - nice to have some fellow Hoosiers on the board!

Lori - I'm going to Ivy Tech Bloomington and just finished my pre-reqs this last semester. This spring I will be taking a 'break' with abnormal psych, sociology (online) and Spanish III. I say a break because they are all classes I want to take not have to. The deadline to apply for Fall '06 is March 9 and all I have left to do is take the TEAS. I am currently studying for that. I plan to take it around the 3rd week of January. What school do you attend where you are starting in January? Good Luck! Isn't buying school supplies so exciting???

Whispera - nice to meet you. Are you currently a nurse or a student? What part of IN are you from? North/South/East/West?

Both of you have a great day and don't be strangers! I will be checking in around here more often now that I found this board. Forever I only spent time on the pre-nursing board...didn't venture out too much. Then look - I found INDIANA :)

Hi again. I'm a nursing clinical instructor for Indiana University South Bend. You'll all do great, just go with the flow, study hard, and try not to get TOO stressed out! (Easy for me to say,right?)

Yes - but you were there at one time and at least have an understanding of what we are going through. Sometimes (at least for me) my family doesn't understand ;)

I think lots of people don't understand how difficult nursing school is, or what nurses do. My family didn't and still doesn't. They don't see how intense the work (learning it and doing it too) is. Sometimes I think all they see are nurses as they're portrayed on tv and in the movies (the inaccurate portrayals). We have to educate them!

I'm here! Just a little achy. I'm going to Ivy Tech Columbus and next semester I'm taking micro, intermediate algebra and lifespan dev. I plan on applying in the spring but also applying to do surg tech as a back up.

Hello. I'm a Hoosier too! An RN in northwest Indiana. Have worked in LTC nearly 20 years. Glad to meet you all.

I'm down in Bloomington. I moved here almost 1 year ago and am loving it.

I've been an RN for about 15 years, and a LPN for about 14 years before that.

Thinking about going back to get my Masters. I haven't really looked at anything yet programwise.

Beth - good luck with Micro and the rest. I just took that & lifespan & adv. physiology last semester...whew! Am I glad that's over!! Is columbus still on the NET exam or have the converted to the TEAS? I think I am going to take the test on the 6th for the first time - and I'm a little nervous. I took a practice one last night on ATI's site, and it wasn't bad at all. However, I don't want to go in over confident....

Anyway - nice to 'meet' you and good luck next semester!

I'm at Ivy Tech Lafayette. Taking my last 2 pre-reqs this semester. Dev Psych and Interpersonnal Com online.

Nice to meet everyone. Happy New Year!!

Glad to find you ladies and gentlemen. I live in Fort Wayne.

We have no snow either but lots of rain and cold enough to be absolutely miserable.

Only 78 days till spring!!!!

Beth,

Just wondering if you have heard anything from Columbus yet....Nicu got her acceptance letter at Ivy Tech Lafayette (2 weeks early) and I am waiting to hear from Columbus and Bloomington, though Bloomington's deadline isn't for another 2 weeks :(

Just curious to see if you have heard anything - keep me posted - maybe we will be classmates this fall!!
