    For Medical Campus, your sealed drug test envelope and medical checkup/titer/hep B option goes to the nursing office window on the third floor. I think it's actually in building 2000, but it's on the border of building 1000.

    I was accepted into the accelerated option, but I chickened out. Because of a foul-up mostly on their part, I lost a semester — I could have applied for the spring class — though I was able to finish just about everything I need (except sociology) for the BSN bridge program. Now I'm not going to be done until December 2013 if all goes well, and NCLEX in 2014. It seems like forever, but it's all good.

    Good luck!

    No I haven't purchased anything yet and I doubt they'll change the edition.

    I think they set the July 6th deadline so people don't procrastinate, but I heard weeks ago from someone in advisement that it would be OK to bring everything to orientation.

    I have an AED/CPR/lifesaving card for first responders (good for another 20 months) from the Red Cross, and the person at the third floor window looked at the photocopy of it as if I brought it from another planet. According to what the school wants, it has to be AHA-approved. Since when does ARC need the AHA's approval? As far as I know, everyone considers them to be completely equivalent.

    Just a heads up for those who still have to take CPR -- take an American Heart Association course for minimal hassle. Their Miami office is not far from downtown.

    Yeah its has to be AHA.

    I'm re-taking CPR at MDC next weekend. Their course is AHA-approved. The Red Cross CPR for First Responders class I recently took, which cost a lot more than MDC's, is apparently worthless, as far as MDC and the hospitals they deal with are concerned.

    I do have everything else squared away, though.
