Constructors in VB classes

I'm writing a VB class wrapping an XML document.  I would like to be able to create the class from a node in the constructor as follows:

    Dim node As IXMLDomNode
    Set node = GetNodeFromSomeWhere

    Dim myClass As New clsFoo(node)

Is this valid vb syntax, or do I have to do 2 phase construction as follows:

    Dim node As IXMLDomNode
    Set node = GetNodeFromSomeWhere

    Dim myClass As New clsFoo
    myClass.SetNode node

>>Dim myClass As New clsFoo(node)

This syntax is available in VB.Net (and C#).
For VB6, you have to do in 2 phases...
