    I'm assuming they still have to do background checks and everything, so if they do still let more prople in, the newer people would need to get back ground checked last minute. Any idea when they do background checks?

    From the paperwork session our background insurance and physical is due by nov 16th. I think itll probably be by then through the orientation which is in mid December. Good luck!!(:

    I did my background and got the results in 3-4 days (:

    dazzle chunk don't worry they accept people up to the first week of school because some people get scared and figure out too late that they do not want to be a nurse.

    Oo yes I was given a littmann se ii by my cousin. I think they're a very good brand of stethoscopes. No engraving on mine ): have you purchased the uniforms yet? Those are the only ones I haven't purchased. I want to see them in person at orientation (:

    hi cathering,
    same here! i need to purchase the uniforms still and im not looking forward to their price of almost 200 for only 2 pairs. I want to see the sizes because theres a statistic that you gain like 20 lbs while in nursing school which i hope is wrong because i honestly could lose like 30 now! i am excited about the orientation day because by then pharm will be over, which i can't wait for!!!

    Thank you ctgangel.
    I called the nursing dept a few weeks ago and they said they had let in 8/10 of the alternates. But that was before the background checks were due so maybe they let some more in by now. When they are done going through the alternates, they will start calling the 1st pool. Yeay.

    Sigh...., I just called today and they said they are still on the alternates and have s few more left before they will start on 1st pool. There are normally 10 in the 1st pool, and they do not know where I stand in that pool yet. Well, I prayed about it so whatever is meant to be will happen and I will try not to be so anxious. I finish Pharm in a few weeks so I will have 72 pts after this class. It will be enough for the Fall. I am just so anxious to get in as soon as possible.

    Dazzlechunk i forgot which pharm class you are in? the night one or do you have venable? i am in venables class now. in due time you will be in like i said theres a lot of people that don't show up even on orientation day. if you are 30 minutes late they will drop someone out and get the next one in. keep praying.
    otherwise you apply in feb and for sure you will get in! do you have gerontology and the other life cycles class done?
