    Hi everyone, I just found out yesterday I got in to the program!!! I don't know what section I'm in just yet but was advised to check the orientation site daily until I see my name listed. I'm so excited!!! I was wondering if any of you have ordered your uniforms yet and if you had tried on a sample uniform at the school beforehand? I want to order mine but noticed the sizes might not be what we think so I don't want to order the wrong size. I'm 5'1" about 145 lbs....anyone here about the same size? Thank you and I look forward to seeing you at orientation!

    doctormomof3, how far in advance would you say you received the acceptance email before the csus website updated their number? I'm so so close. Because I wonder if she sends out acceptance emails as people drop/decline or if she waits for a few before sending out emails at once. If anyone has any input...I remember her saying at the info session that she can even be adding students up until the first week of class?? Of course knowing sooner would be better but waiting to find out my fate is so hard.

    student4568, the website alt list was updated about 2 or 3 days after they phoned me to let me know they had an open seat for me. I was alt #41. From what I understand, there were 5 seats that opened up, although I have no idea how closely they opened up before calls were made to alternates. I know they keep the list open until the end of the first week because they can still get openings at that stage of the game. To make life a little easier on yourself in case you get the call close to the start of the semester, do the following:

    1. Get your CPR certification completed. Make sure it is the CPR/AED for PROFESSIONAL RESPONDERS. I made the mistake of getting certified for lay responders so now I'm having to take the right class in order to meet the requirement. Oh well, more practice!

    2. Make sure you have your vaccinations in completed...if you can't find your vaccination card, have your doctor order titers for the vaccinations that need to be met. Don't put it off!

    3. Get your 2-Step TB test done. Make sure its the 2-step test....this is required for health professionals/nursing schools.

    4. Get your car insurance, health insurance info together.

    All this paperwork will need to be uploaded to a website that manages the background checks, immunization info, and other requirements. I hope this helps! Best wishes to you on getting the call even if it comes in the 11th hour! Hang in there!!!
