    Congrats FLFish, unfortunately I was put on the alternate list for the ABSN. I don't know when the result for the upper division comes out though 'cos I applied to both. Congrats again.

    That's awesome news!! Congrats! ! There is a lot to do in a short period of time. Schedule your general USF orientation ASAP. It is required before you can register for classes. I attended mine today. I found it very informative about USF procedures and activities that we have access to. Our ABSN match day/orientation is on 7/28 and 7/29. When we will find out what clinical sites we get. The CON will enroll us in our classes afterwards. Also, get your immunizations ASAP. I went to the county health dept. and waited 4 hours. If you have insurance, your own doctor may be able to give them to you. See you on the 28th.

    All white scrubs. Does not matter where you buy it. Don't go crazy with trying to get a $20 shirt and $20 unless its necessary. You will be so eager to take them off at the end of the day.

    Make sure to join Nursing Student Council!

    See you guys on the 28th!

    CNA Sam, Do you have any recommendations for male scrubs or shoes, i.e. brand, style, or place to purchase?

    Thank you CNA Sam. Was just curious. An advisor in another school where I work told me the new entrants into their nursing program are required to bring $700 for 2 pairs each of scrubs, customized school T shirts and pants, shoes, panty hose for ladies and other kits. So you know where i 'm coming from. But I will heed your advise about the $20 scrub though.

    I personally bought my set for $10 before I came to Tampa. But I am female. There are a couple places around campus to buy scrubs. In university mall (two mins from campus) there is uniform store where I also bought my lab coat. Uniform city was a recommendation given to me by a male classmate. You could always buy them online but I personally need to see what I am buying. As far as shoes I would say buy shoes that will prepare you to stand 12 hours and they need to have minimal other colors (only white). Some instructors can be sticklers about that. When its get cold (I know, we are in FL) I would suggest a long sleeve white undershirt, but that isnt needed now. Be prepared for the 450 kaplan program, you can pay up front or spread it out. Dont go crazy on the stethoscope... no 200 dollar ones, I paid 50 and it works just fine!

    I'm not sure what the deadline dates are, but I think your pre-reqs have to be complete when you submit your application. An advisor could tell you for sure though.
