    @ KY girl~I am hoping you can give me some information. What iphone app is required and when will we find out what scrubs are needed? I would like to try and get some of these things purchased before August!
    Thanks!
    I'm not sure what the app is called but it is by skyskape. I think KCTCS and skyskape made a custom package. The cost is $180 for the app from the bookstore. They just give you a paper with a website and an access code. What I wrote earlier is what is on it.

    For the uniform, it is from Meridy's. The site is http://www.meridys.com/ and enter the code BCTC53 . Please know they changed the uniform colors from the class before me to my class so they may change them again. I would ask an instructor before buying anything. The sizing runs big so I would order a size smaller than you normally wear. What you'll need for clinicals is a scrub top and bottom, the lab jacket, name badge, pen light (buy several- they die), stethescope, watch, and white socks/shoes. A pair of bandage scissors and some tape is a good idea too. Don't buy the cheap sprague type of stethescope. Several people in my class had theirs fall apart and generally suck. You can get a cheap Littmann for $50 or so. Auscultating (hearing) quality is so-so on the cheap one but they are much better built.

    @NursingStudent 34. I went to advising and was NOT told of a entrance Math test So I hope we can find out some information soon about that!! I was told to wait and order the scrubs once we were given the information (color may change). Do you live in L-burg or will you be communting? Have you signed up for classes yet? I am on M 4-9 W 5-9 and Sat clinical!

    I am registered for 115 with the Saturday clinical (Moody). I had to have student records enroll me in the class because it wouldn't let me enroll on Peoplesoft. Also, I am registered for an OST 105 class...anyone else registered for this class? What is it?

    Hi everyone,

    Congrats on your acceptance. I also was accepted and I am excited and very anxious. Does anyone know what books we will use for NR115? The online bookstore doesn't list any books. Are there any 40 somethings that want to hook up for study group and support?

    I am the mother of 3 special needs children and I have worked so hard to get accepted. I am going to show my girls that hard work, perseverance and faith make all things possible.

    This is a "fixing to be a 2nd year" BCTC (Cooper) student... GET YOUR PHARMACOLOGY DONE OVER THE SUMMER!!! Tests are all online (aka OPEN BOOK!).
    Ditto to this, I did do summer pharmacology and it is was a lifesaver. BCTC has been a better experience then I expected and I love my classmates.
