The Nerd In Me

The word from up north is we should be getting our registration information sometime next week. Hooray! This will soon be followed by our financial aid packages, which I am not so excited about considering that FAFSA believes I have $11,000 just sitting around to contribute to my education. Whoever came up with the “Estimated Family Contribution” formula needs a serious reality check.

But I digress… In lieu of any more details from my program, I decided to do a little investigative work of my own. So I went online to the Registrar’s page and checked out the nursing class schedule for Fall 2008. I’ve been warned by the program coordinator that our actual timeline will not exactly match what is posted, but I was desperate for SOME semblance of a schedule. Since I like to plan months ahead of time and all. 🙂

So if the website gods be true, it looks like most of my lectures will be Mondays and Wednesdays all day, and Tuesday mornings. Clinicals/labs will fill in the rest of my “spare time”. The great news is, it doesn’t appear that any of my lectures start before 9 a.m. so I won’t have to wake up quite as early as I feared.

Here is my course load – it’s a doozy for the first semester:

  • Physiological Nursing – basically Adult Health Nursing
  • Mental Health Nursing – talk about trial by fire!
  • Pharmacotherapeutics
  • Professional Role Development
  • Clinical Skills (4-week summer course we tackle before the semester officially begins)

Note to self: Brush up on Anatomy, Physiology and Pathophysiology this summer. I’m about to get my ass handed to me.

I’ll post more when I actually get my registration information. Next week Mommy and I travel to my new city to check out the campus and do a little apartment-hunting. I can’t wait!!!!
