    Erikah,
    I will for sure let you know and please let me know about you as well : )

    That's good to know about the scrubs! Do you know if you we can purchase them ahead of time or is it something we have to buy from the school?

    Hello!
    I just graduated again from Baptist in December (I did LPN, then went back for the LPN to RN) and the dress code is solid navy scrubs for class and solid white for clinicals with a solid navy lab jacket. 95% White leather shoes, no open back (clogs). Thats it! LPN is very strict on attire, RN was not (for class) . I wish you both good luck and know that the best opportunities are the ones you make for yourself!! You will learn a LOT if you allow yourself to!

    Oh yeah, you can purchase them anywhere you want. There will be someone there selling them on Welcome day but it's easier to buy them before!

    Erikah,

    I got my acceptance letter in a few weeks ago. Just mailed my $100 deposit off. I am so excited. But if you have not got yours yet dont worry because I was originally accepted into the January class and for financial reasons i had to wait till July.

    Thanks for the heads up on the uniforms I am going to see where I can get them, I know of Griffey's but they are expensive. Is there anywhere cheaper?

    Hey Drake's mom! Idk why I'm just now seeing your post, but CONGRATS! Yes, I'm still waiting & starting to get nervous! haha! So, did you hafta retake the ACT or anything? I had to retake it, so that's what my hold up is....Hopefully I get in, everyone is telling me not to worry because they pretty much accept everybody, but I'll be nervous until the day I get that letter in the mail! CONGRATS again girl! I'm happy for ya!

    I'm starting at Baptist in july as well doing the RN express track!! So excited!! I'm ready to wear those navy scrubs! lol

    Congradulations! You'll be wearing white ones too for clinicals. Be prepared to give your whole life over to it. My husband had to take over most of the housework and taking care of the 3 kids. It's not a good bargain for them. Hang on!

    When I went as an LPN it was a year and then a separate program could follow called "fast track". You had to have all or most of your prerequesites though. Has it changed? The RN by itself was 28 months.

    Hey girl! Just curious to see if you ever started the LPN program at Baptist? If so, how did you like it? Do you still plan on fast tracking in January 2012?
