    Yes, there's a skills lab. However, in your first semester, there isn't much to do. The first few weeks of skills lab you'll be watching videos and using your med-surg bag (has syringes, foley caths, medication vials. etc) so you can get familiar with it. They also have 4 beds with patient mannequins so you can learn how to make a bed properly and do a head-to-toe assessment. Remember, it's your first semester of fundamentals so it's very basic. Don't expect to learn how to start IV's.

    Perfect, thank you for the info!

    I didn't get my books yet either only because it said in the letter to wait until orientation.

    Hi...ipads/tablets are not really needed, but they don't mind you using one. All the lectures are powerpoints. I took my iPad just to follow along her (407/408) lecture and made notes...
