    Wow, first let me say congrats to everyone who will be starting the nursing program in the summer. I am a current nursing student @ USA and I will say it is going to be hard and stressful, but also fun and entertaining.

    Hmm, of the things I have heard on here
    1. Yes, we will be in the new building! I am kind of excited, but will miss being at SHAC.

    2. Don't know your incoming schedule, but if you guys are taking Health Assessment, Pharm and Patho it will be a pretty good first semester. Dr. Vanderwaa teaches Pharm and Patho. She is awesome and you will really enjoy her classes. I will say that buying the books for those two classes are not necessary. Print her notes, go to class and you have all the information you need. Health Assessment is taught by different instructors. Lots of information will be covered and I am sure since it is summer it will be fast paced. Remember to review the book and your notes. Keep up on all the material!! Don't put off studying til last minute or it will not be pretty!


    Once again, congrats to all of you and welcome to the USA Nursing Family!

    thanks scrubfan! i always like to hear from students that are actually in the program!! what semester are you in?

    i am not sure if you know, but are we going to have all new equipment (like baldwin) in the new bldg???

    i also heard that dr. vanderwaa is a great teacher! this makes me feel alot better. i know that this program is intense, but it can be done if you are determined.

    please keep us posted and anything that you think would be helpful would be gladly taken :spin:
