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.
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.
