    Does anyone know what skills lab section is for 2XBX? Its not on the list I think there was a typo on the registration

    There is a "skills lab?" I have my work schedule allready planned out around the current scheduleing. No one ever said anything about a lab! Also, they sent out an updated book list? I called Becks yesterday and it was still on hold.

    I called the office yesterday to ask them what this "skills lab" was for and that I never received such email about it, nor about the updated booklist. Apparently I wasn't on their email listing. The lady told me that she added me on to their email listing and that I should be getting emails from them now. I have yet to see anything in my inbox...

    Si I spoke with and anyone else who is assigned there was a typo the skills lab for anyone assigned to 2XBX is actually instead 2YBX, FYI for anyone else in the same section.

    Did anyone get the new email sent today at 2:30 saying we have to call to confirm registration for orientation along with doing that online entry. This is so confusing and I am at the end of my rope with these people and we haven't even started!

    Anyone excited for next week? will be a loooong week
  9. by   maane1005
    Yes! I am greatly looking forward to going to school with no books in hand. (Please note sarcasm)

    Anyways, still waiting for that finalized book list. I guess we'll be stuck with having to spend over a thousand dollars if we are left with no other choice but to purchase our books at the book store...

    That's what I'm worried about! I always get my books from Amazon or similar. If we're only given a week to get them, we'll have to pay up!

    I called the Continuing Education department on Friday but of course they were gone for the day. When they called back today, they said that I was officially signed up for the Daytime orientation! Great! Except I'm in the Evening Cohort! Ugh. So I had to call back and leave a message and who knows if they'll get it before Monday's orientation and if it will mess everything up!

    I'm dreading telling my boss about the Skills Lab! I cannot believe they sprung this on us 2 weeks before classes start and AFTER we registered and finagled our schedules to work.

    I'm beyond frustrated and I feel like I've been saying that for months now!!

    From what I have been told, this is just the beginning of everything. As disorganized as everything is right now, I am just so glad and thankful I am in this position to start the nursing program. However, it would definitely have been nice if everything was set and finalized prior or a few days after we registered for classes and clinicals. That way, everyone's needs and schedule could be accommodated.

    I tried emailing them to see if I can switch my lab skills hours, but no reply back yet. It appears that I will have to switch my AP2 to a night course though; otherwise, it would conflict with my lab schedule. Sigh...

    Despite not getting all information sooner I am very excited to begin!!!
