    I agree I spent 254 at they fitting, I paid the 70 for back ground (just finished the drug test). Now I have to wait to see what my doctor is going to charge on Friday.

    I figured books for the entire program is about 2170.22 and maybe 1500, for digital plus an iPad 16 GB with retina display ( Ipad mini would be cheaper.)

    that number I figured without the 25% discount on books if bought in a bundle and I used books currently sold for the nursing department for the fall 2012 semester.

    No one can tell me what total book will be.

    I think i might lean towards the digital, even though they expire in 4 years and regular books you can keep forever, I am just not sure yet.

    Murse, you're so lucky to get into your doc so quickly. I have to wait two weeks. I did get the drug testing and CPR paid for today.

    Where are you doing cpr at. I did mine at Edward Hospital, they have several dates and it is only 50 dollars compared to JJC 90 dollars, and it is a 4 hour class verse a 9 hour class at JJC. they are the same classes. It might be worth looking into. save you $40 and 5 hours. Here is a link to the class schedule. hope it helps.

    Do you do the one for health care providers? And is this one acceptable at Jjc.

    Yes, Edward is for health care providers. They actually have both. the website will specify which on is which. I showed my card to the department and they said it is the same one they give. I took the class a month ago. and the book you get is the same one everyone gets regardless of where you take the class, and Edward has a nice cafeteria.

    Thank you I will be saving some money and getting it done quicker because I am going there.

    Most local Fire Stations have the class for a discount to residence too. It generally is 50.00. That's the route I'm going, I don't live near Edwards. I think the information about shoes will prob be in the handbook when it gets loaded into iCampus.

    Where ever you go just make sure it is american heart association. Some fire departments are red cross.

    I just went to a place in Naperville around the fox valley mall to a place called scrubs etc to buy my shoes. They offer 20% for students all times and they have an email sign up when you text them you get an instant 30% off your order. I think their scrubs are better and they have scopes and blood pressure cuffs also. It was much better then life uniforms in Joliet. And did I say 30% off. Yeah me!!!

    Has anyone turned in any paperwork to the nursing department yet?

    The only thing I've turned in is the Pin order form. I'll wait until I have all the other items in order to turn in together, prob not for three more weeks.
