I start an ADN program Sep. 2 and I have a 2 day orientation in the 3rd week of August. The second day of orientation there is a pizza party thing that we can bring our families to.
I called to get a little more info and found out that the syllabus pack costs $300
!!! I really hope there's more than just paper in there.
I heard from another student that part of the orientation is a sort of job fair were hospitals come and try to get you to work for them after you graduate by showing off their sign-on bonuses etc.
I am so excited about starting school I can hardly stand it!!!
(I'm sure this will wear off after I see the syllabus at orientation
Good luck to everyone and let me know how your orientation goes.
