I've been lurking around the site and have learned alot about what to expect the first week of school. We have orientation this next week and will start our first day on Sept. 3. I'm so excited. Do you all have any advice for new students? I already purchased my books and have started some of the modules to get ahead. we have a 8 week course before they let us free to work on patients. I have worked as a CNA for about 6 years in SNF and Acute Care settings so I feel prepared. We shall see. I would appreciate any advice that you guys have. Wish me luck.
