    Do you think it would be okay to bring a family member to you nursing schools orientation?(it doesn't say on my letter if it was okay or not)

    I do not. Besides the presentations not being anyone else's concern, it looks juvenile. You will be distracted too, as the family member will get bored, there will be sidebar discussions, etc

    School orientation is a time for STUDENTS to learn and ask questions. Neither the time nor place for parents.

    Never thought to bring a family member to nursing school orientation.

    Absolutely not. That is completely unprofessional. Would you bring them to work? Same concept.

    Or a job interview???

    I've actually read where this is really occurring in some interviews. And it was the parents who were commandeering the interview. (The applicants were NOT getting the jobs.)

    Sorry to be blunt but the reason it doesn't say on your letter if it's ok or not is because they assume that you know that nursing school orientation is precisely that- orientation for accepted nursing students, not a family event.

    Congratulations on being accepted! Your family can always throw you a party after the fact

    Gotta agree with the previous responders.

    Good luck!
