    I have been accepted into the LPN program at CFCC for Jan 2010. I'll see you there I am wondering what books I will need, the list can not be provided to me at this time by the bookstore. I am on a very tight budget so would like to pick up a book or two at a time. Does anyone have info available?

    Yes, I am at CFCC. We had a few each semester but not what I would say is alot and its always in a group setting.

    Mudslyder,
    The list of books are usually not given until the day of orientation along with cost of tuition for 1st semester.

    FYI for orientation.........Bring some cash or a check book. The ADN students will be coming in to sell the patches for uniforms. I recommend 4 sets. 3 for uniforms and one for your lab jacket. They will also be selling bandage scissors, pen lights (I don't recommend, the broke frequently this year), t-shirts, clipboards and all kinds of other stuff. You do NOT have to buy it, you can buy it somewhere else on your own....its a fundraiser though and its nice to support our fellow nursing students.

    I should see everyone at orientation, I am the V.P. of the PN student nursing association for this year.

    Oh BTW....did you know your first semester schedule is available! http://www.cf.edu/departments/instru.../calendars.htm

    Scroll down to Practical Nursing and click 1st semester! If you wanna see what our summer/fall was like you can look at those too as they are still for this year.
    The schedule is not written in stone and they may make some changes to it, but the hours will remain basically the same.

    Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Hey Holli

    Nice to meet you & thank you for the prompt response here. I will just plan on tightly budgeting between now & then. Hey thanks for the heads up on the class schedule I'm looking forward to starting class. Do LPN's have difficulty finding a job in Ocala? It's my understanding that ORMC does not hire LPNs. (I was there last week & chatting with an RN.)

    I'm not sure about ORMC, but MRMC does hire LPN's. The majority of jobs are in a nursing home setting, either long term care or sub-acute. Home Health is another option. But like I side I know that MRMC hires them. A few in our class are CNA's there and will be staying there and not just because they are "grandfathered" in.

    Its an exciting time, Congrats on the start of your journey!

    The presentations are pretty laid back and can be done in a power point format.
    No stress really.
