Had nursing school orientation part 1 today...excited :)

  1. Today was part 1 of our nursing school orientation. They had all accepted students come to a mandatory orientation today, whether we were placed in Fall or Spring cohorts. Instead of just reading on a piece of paper that I was accepted, it finally felt REAL today! We met 2 of the faculty and the program director. It was great seeing so many people I knew from other courses had made it in as well. None of us seem to be in the same cohort together.

    Lots of info on equipment we'll need to buy (stethoscope, penlight, uniforms, etc.) I'm so excited to go try on our scrub uniforms and place my order my uniforms

    Part 2 of orientation will be 1 week before nursing school starts in the fall. Until then, I have to get all my vaccination records in order, get a background check completed and submitted to the school. Can't wait to jump in to nursing school in August!!!!!

    Remember - no matter how rough it gets or how crazy it feels you EARNED your spot

    Don't be like the people on here who complain about every detail of their program.
    It's not your program, it's theres. and that program is going to make our dreams happen.
    Do what you need to do to get that RN license!!

    Im almost done with my 1st semester and you guys will be great!

    Good luck, MommaTy!

    Thank you, Jessatkinson86 I like to focus on the positive and I'm eager to get started and LEARN! I certainly don't want to be a complainer. Anything worth doing is going to be a challenge. I'm up for the challenge!!! Can't wait to get started.

    Just ordered my nursing school uniforms today. Also bought my stethoscope (Littman Classic SE II), medimeter, penlight & scissors. Already have the appropriate shoes from my phlebotomy externship, so saved on that. Now I just have to get my vaccination records in order and submit my background check with the State.
