Hi all! I've started this thread for those of us who have gotten the good news and have been accepted to start the nursing program at Truman College in Fall 2012! If you are still waiting to hear,... Read More

    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...

    You need to email the lab skills teacher in order to change the class schedule. I did that and I got an email back stating that they will try to accomodate my schedule...I was told that I will get a confirmation next week...

    Thank you Lungu2007. I have emailed one of the instructors last Friday, but I will email both instructors this time to be sure.

    Do you think our professor would know what books we are using? At least to cover us for the first few weeks. I can't believe they don't have it finalized yet!
