    Quote, not mine, hope it helps:

    "Hi I'm a nursing student at North Campus. I know its stressful and nerve racking to see if you've been accepted. A word of advice if admissions say you'll know by the 15th you will know on the 15th and not a day before. Also if your not accepted don't. Worry they always do a second round of letters are sent out two weeks after the 15th. Many students either defer or decline their seats.
    When you do get accepted my best advice is buy the Perry and Potter fundamentals of Nursing book. Out of pocket don't wait for financial aid. Its a lot of reading in the program and if you can get a headstart then ready set go! It will be worth every dollar once you start! Exam 1 covers vital signs,health assessment,saftey,hygiene,documentation and nursing process! Told you its a lot! Get the book start reading you'll be glad you did!!!!! Another nugget of advice testing is not anything you've done before its all critical thinking! Do the review questions at the end of the chapters! good luck!!

    "Clinical Nursing Skills & Techniques, 7th edition, perry and potter " is another book that i would assume we need before class??? what do you guys think?

    if they are all leather then yes...I will begin my shoe hunt soon

    Do you know what the uniforms are like (ex. maker and color)? I want to buy them on amazon, bc it will be cheaper.Previous classes on here suggested amazon for getting everything to save a lot of money.
