    Sorry my formatting is weird! My desktop won't let me post, so I copy & pasted with my phone and it won't do paragraph breaks.
    No worries Irish Mama! Thank you for all the words of wisdom. I will ask about the budget increase form when I go to financial aid. Also I did not know there were additional scholarships to apply for after the first term. I thought the only scholarships were the ones I applied for when I applied to BSU. I really appreciate your optimism, it changed the zeitgeist of my evening
    Oh and I plan on living in ID for a long time. I've registered my car here, moved here in March even though I don't start school till August, have had two part time jobs and applied for state daycare assistance so hopefully that counts as being here for more than just school...

    I took patho last summer so I'm not sure what the hold up is with me.
    DarkLotus, it seems like you were stressed so I'm glad IrishMama was able to give you some more info so you don't have to wait on nursing school.
    Irishmama, thanks for the stethoscope advice! I was looking at that same model the other day. Were you able to find better prices than the school book store? I have looked around a little bit but most seem to be close to the same price.

    You took patho last summer, awesome! In the past week I've found the class to be so fast paced and way too much information. Any advice on it is appreciated!
    It seems like there is just enough time to watch the lectures and camtasias, copy the notes, do the sets and study guide then it is time for the test with no spare day to study or review!
    Also I emailed Denise even though she said not to till the 23rd because I'm pushy and annoying like that and she said that they are still processing the applications into broncoweb and to try again tomorrow. Basically they have to approve each of the seventy students for each course into the system, so it might take another day or two. I hope you get the sections you want!

    Yes, summer patho is definitely fast paced. I would usually print out the powerpoint slides/notes and add my own info as I watched the camtasias. We just had to watch camtasias; there weren't lectures to watch as well though. Do you work in groups to complete the study guides? Our instructor broke us into groups of 3-5 to complete them; each member would only have 15-20 questions to complete. It was nice to not have as many questions so I could make the deadlines, but I found myself up late nights completing all of the questions so the info would 'stick' in my mind. It was nice, however, to have a few people to ask for clarification on anything so I would highly recommend seeking out some classmates if you haven't already. I really did not have much review time---maybe a day at most. I feel like I learned a lot but not sure if I will be able to remember everything since I basically had to cram all the info so fast.
    I really want to do clinicals on Mondays, so hopefully I am able to.

    I remember during our first semester our lab instructor told us that if we don't want to use the school supplied stethoscopes we should just get ourselves good ones since this will last for years until we get our first job as an RN. Pick the most comfortable shoes since we'll be on our feet for 12 hrs. I had my Nike shox for 5 yrs. now and i currently work as a CNA (8 hrs on my feet) and i just love my shoes' performance. Eventually i'll have to replace them but i'm still gonna get a nike shox.
