    I just had orientation last week. It really made everything seem REAL instead of just a dream, does that make sense? It was also great to see people who have been in my pre-req classes who made it in to the program. We have a lot of paperwork to complete between now and July 7th. Background check, fingerprinting, vaccination records, etc.

    I ordered my scrubs for nursing school on Friday and they said it would take 3 weeks to arrive because they have to get custom-embroidered with our school's logo. Picked up my stethoschope (Littman Classic SE II), medimeter, penlight & scissors. Just trying on the scrubs in the uniform shop made me feel like "I'm really on my way to being a nurse!" All that hard work of pre-reqs is behind us now Now, nursing school is looming ahead. I'm excited and nervous at the same time.

    You are correct, it definitely felt like being a kid on Christmas Eve! We're having Orientation Part #2 about 2 weeks before school starts. Can't wait for August to get here

    Enjoy your orientation tomorrow. Can't wait to hear all about it!

    Had mine a couple of weeks ago. It did make it seem real! There are some strict rules about dress code, I will say that. Not that I won't/can't follow the rules, but I think it is interesting how strict they are on ear piercings and hair color/accessories. Anyway, good thing I'm not planning a funky new hair color. I already completed most of my paperwork like fingerprinting and vaccinations. I start in August! This is probably the one time in my life when I am glad I have a couple of months to chill before I hit the books again. This past year of school was exhausting!

    I have to wait until August. At least the info package gave me some things to work on until then.
