    Great that this thread is picking up!!

    Good luck to all future nurses...!!!
    I was also at orientation. The second person, last row by the windows. Im trying to get my Cores out of the way before Aug 22, because I have my cpr already and really would like to reduce my balance since im not eligible for financial aid and I work :-( . So, if you future nurses have any idea where I can get cores done w/o paying an arm and a leg plse help!! Thnx in advance.

    Hi HMMC4,
    Hope all is well! Well orientation really was not what I expected, idk maybe I'm just so nervous but excited at the same time. I felt that they really didn't say much. Little emphasis on books, supplies, etc. The one thing was uniform. The uniforms are different, looks more like a basic scrub attire and its purple!! I kinda like it because it has no collar and looks more like a nursing scrub none of that bell-bottom look I've seen the students wear; lol if that makes sense. And we have to wear all white shoes that are "leather" or "like-leather". I would have appreciated if they gave us like a list of supplies/books to have and/or where we can purchase shoes/supplies. Do we need our own stethoscope...idk felt like we were left in the dark. lol but whatever I will just have to asked questions and read other posts on this website.
    They also spoke abt the usual like policies and procedure, attendance, affiliated clinical sites etc etc..lol

    I will posts more updates as the program begins :-)

    Hi Praying 01,
    Thanks for keeping me updated. I am excited about the new scrubs. I just found out about it this week but wasnt sure when they were switching. Also, purple is my favorite color! LOL. That kinda stinks not knowing what type of supplies, esp with all the good deals right now.
    Well, atleast you are closer to starting school. The 22nd will be here real soon. Did they mention doing CPR before class starts? I am sure you will get loads of info once you start. Sending you prayers as you start the program!
    Keep me posted! I would love to know how your doing!

    I have to admit that while I was so excited for the purple scrubs, I felt bad for the guys who would be in the program. Most guys dont want to wear purple. Atleast the teal was ok for both. It was the dreadful white pants I was worried about. Wonder why they switched? Oh well, guess will be left in the dark on that one too! Hehehe.

    @Hmmc4 - For the cpr she mentioned that, soon, it will be required before you are admitted into the program. But for now it is still apart of the first 3wks of class. I'm trying to avoid the first 3wks and, instead, start around Sept. 15

    @Chris954 - I'm EXTREMELY nervous as well. But I'd rather try and fail than not try at all! And I REALLY need this and move on to a RN/BSN so that I can shut some peoples mouth!!

    I have faith that I will pass to move on...

    Hi Praying01,
    Thank you so much for all the info you are giving me. I really appreciate it. I was all excited thinking about orientation and finding out all the info we would need, but now I know not to expect too much I can see how you felt "left in the dark". I wonder if they give the students the supply list, book list, etc when you register? I hope you can get your core done before class starts so you can start later. I have to try and get CPR done now.... ugh.... mine expired in '06

    @chris954.... I agree with praying01. It can be very scary to enter into the unknown, but you have made it this far already, dont give up now. I think they emphasis how tough it is so the students are aware and cant say they werent told it would be extremely hard???

    Best of Luck on starting the program to all of you!!

    to you too!

    Yes, I will be at orientation on the 21st too! I was shocked letters came so soon. Do you need to do the BLS? I need to also get financial aid done. I filled my app online in early Feb so the school can not pull my info up. They have to request it & will call me back so that I can get everything going. Glad to see you will be there too!

    My BLS expires this december, I spoke to Diana and she said it's up to me. I'm probably going to do it before the program. Im more worried about the financial aid, no one has called me back and Mrs. Williams said that financial aid needs high school transcripts ?! I already have an AA so I was a bit put off. I'm making a trip to the school on Tuesday to see about books and financial aid. I can't believe time is passing so fast! November is around the corner!

    I was planning on doing the BLS too, DeAnna says it is not really required but would gives us more time on other training?? I wish I only had to do the renewal like you, prob cheaper
    When I spoke w/fin aid they told me things changed this year. She told me we need:
    HS Diploma
    Transcripts (didnt say what transcripts)
    Taxes for this year
    1040 tax return & your pin
    I am worried about fin aid too, I do not have the money to put out for all the fee's & such. Hopefully fin aid goes smoothly for us. I would much rather get everything and be prepared then to only get a little at a time. If/when I get a call back from fin aid, I will let you know. I havent gotten far w/it being that they cant even pull up my FASA info, but hopefully they get that info soon!! I may end up making a trip over to the school too I want to find out what books we're gonna need. I think they will give a book list??? Maybe they have the new scrubs out & we can see what they look like?
    Yes, NOV is right around the corner.... kinda nervous....
