    I bought the book "calculate with confidence" on old copy and just started it. I also bought The series Nursing Made Incredibly Easy in "intro to Pharmacology" and "Health Assessment". I have started working the math book and am picking through the other. I AM IN FOR THE CPR IN HOOVER IF YOU GET A CLASS TOGETHER.....PLS let me know PM me! Would it be a health care workers certified course? You can also do then with the Red Cross. I have the Person who coordinates the classes card in my car...I will post later. She was at my gym a few weeks ago doiing a community class. I think she has a Health Care worker class in July and I think I remember her saying it was around $75

    I have applied for 1st choice night program because I could really use to keep working, but my company is about to go through a territory re-allignment and my job may be on the, my days may just be free again....

    If you pay $75 for healthcare CPR, you're being cheated. Mine was free because my dad is a cop in the same town, but he was charging everyone else in the class $5.

    I still need to get all my vaccines. Not looking forward to that.

    I know there are some cheaper ways to do it...I think it is a convenience factor to go to the Red Cross and take there class that is pre-arranged and scheduled months in advance on a certain day. PLUS some of us have to do it on a Saturday.

    The Hoover Fire Station located in Inverness offers CPR for Healthcare, the first Saturday of every month. It's free for Hoover residents, and the cost for non-residents is $25.00 I think. You can access the information from the city of Hoover's web site. I hope this helps.

    I put the part time program as my only choice and if I don't get in this time then I will just have to figure out a way to apply for the full time that starts in January. I would really love to just get in the part time progam because I could keep my job. I think that we will need the CPR certification before we start classes so whenever we can get it would be great. A lot of people have told me about the Hoover Fire Dept. so let me know if you think you can get us a time to do it. Is it an all day class? I have looked at all of the "Nursing Made Incredibly Easy" books and they seem like they would be helpful. I am thinking about ordering some of those online. It will give me something to do while I patiently wait to hear something.

    Ya'll I'm so confused. So I emailed ******* like a week or so ago and she said letters would not be coming out until middle or end of July. Then I thought I'd email the other pre-nursing advisor to see what she said and she emailed me this past Tuesday and said that letters would be coming out the end of June. So, is everyone pretty certain it's going to be next week?? I'm so nervous and I'm tired of waiting =) Also, I've registered for the CPR class for July I'm just hoping it isn't the 4th. Do we have to be CPR certified before classes start?

    Which advisor told you that it would be the end of June??? B/C ******* also told me that it would be July and she made it sound like it would be middle July......I would really like to know when to start looking for the letter. I think that we have to be CPR certified before the first day of class. Where are you getting your certification?

    It was the lady at the Jefferson campus, ******** *******. I feel like maybe ******* is saying mid-end of July so that if they take longer they won't be harassed by phone calls and emails wondering why they are late. Haha. I'm just hoping and praying it is next week.

    I know that last year the letters were sent the last week of June. So, if that is the way that it will be this year then we should receive our letters some time next week.

    I talked with the nursing dept. last Teusday, (6/23) and she said it would probably be beginning of this coming week. So I'm hoping that the letters are here by the end of the week at the latest. She specifically said "any day now." Is anyone else eating, breathing, sleeping, nursing school right now, or is it just me?

    I'm so anxious to know, hopefully it'll be this week. Are any of you studying yet and if so what books are you using?? I'm doing nothing all summer so I feel like I should study or do something to get ahead.
