    Good for you !!!! I imagine during your orientation you will be told what books you will need, what supplies, sometimes they sell a kit, if you need a physical exam before starting, insurance, parking decals, sick policies, just general stuff like that.

    WOOOOO HOOOOOO!! Congrats!!!!

    Now the bad part... our orientation was a waste of time. It was mandatory. We already had to have our physical etc, and they mailed us the book list.

    We watched a movie on standard precautions and another on patient confidentiality. We signed consent forms and forms required by the hospital related to patient confidentiality. We signed a form for required hours in clinical....

    The best part was that after several worthless hours the 3rd semester students had a potluck for us.

    VSummer,

    Not fair! My orientation is in early January, we already have our book list, immunizations, drug screen, etc., but we don't even get a lunch! I wonder what I'll be doing in MY orientation.

    Congrats to you! I started this August. ( I am in Live Oak, Fl.)
    At our orientation, we had 3 different tests to take. We went over our handbook, policies & procedures, sick days, holidays, got measured for our clinical uniforms...the whole 9 yards...
    Best wishes to you holler if I can be of any help.

    LOL!! That is why I said it was a waste. We already had all that too! Maybe they will show you some movies like we got (yawn). Too bad your 3rd semester students don't get together and put up some food too. They also gave us some pointers on class. But, like I said, other than those 3rd semester students... what a waste of a day.

    It is great to be able to share with others the joy of getting in!! I received my official acceptance a couple of weeks ago and even though people were happy for me, they just didn't quite "get it".

    At any rate, I start January 02 and graduate December 04, from Washburn University School of Nursing, RN program! I am still walking on air!

    I am carrying 21 hours this semester, to finish up my pre reqs. I was laid off June 02 and didn't look for a job because I knew I would be too busy this semester (husband & four kids along with school), the good news, I quailfied for some federal money due to my "displaced worker" status (the lay off). It will cover over half my tuition!!!

    At any rate fellow students, CONGRATS, and GOOD LUCK! Just for making it this far we should all be proud!
