    Hi everyone! Congrats to everyone who has been accepted recently! Woohoo!

    I just looked up some CPR classes and found this more reasonably priced one:

    CPR Classes - Fire | City of Evanston $30

    I registered for the class at the end of May since I want to see the email first to ascertain the specific requirements before paying for the wrong one! I assumed we need to take the one geared for Professionals rather than the Layperson class. At other places, the professional class is $15 more but here it seems to be the same price!

    Can't wait for that email!

    Is it true Chicago hospitals will hire only nurses with a BSN? I heard they will start in 2014...

    I have not.

    Hello everyone! I know I am late, but I just found this forum. I was accepted a while back and I will be looking forward to joining you guys at Truman for the fall. As far as CPR, I just registered at MXC for May 19th, 9:30a-2:30p. It was $45.00.

    And Bethany1975, I received an updated email saying what people mentioned above that more info will be emailed on May 14. I guess that is our confirmation? Did you receive that email?

    No, Endless_STi, I did not receive that email. That is what I'm a little worried about. I definately will give a call today.

    I'm looking forward to meeting everyone in the fall also.

    I got accepted a few weeks back to Truman's nursing program. Happy belated congrats to all that have made it, I'm sure it will be a fun program. I think we are all very fortunate to be part of such great program that produces a high percentage of students that pass the NCLEX. You will also run into people who look down on the program because it is not a BSN curriculum. However, I would like to remind everyone that the people who look down on this degree are usually the one's who end up or already have $30,000+ student loans. Ironically enough they where not smart enough to invest in economically viable degree. There are not many two year programs that provide so many career opportunities especially at this tuition rate. I hope that we focus on upholding high standards and work together to bring a positive atmosphere for this upcoming semester.

    Very well put Rick!

    Does anyone know the total cost of the program by the way?
