    So did anybody here receive a letter? I got mine this week and have been running around crazy ever since, trying to meet deadlines.

    I've bought all my supplies and a watch is needed. Also, when I
    went there, I was informed that the school would supply our goggles.

    Sorry everyone, I haven't logged on in so long that I didn't realize people already answered my question. Oh well, congrats and see you all in the fall!

    Classic Image didn't have a hemostat on their list. Do you know how much it is when purchased separately?

    Quote from pbadger
    The scrub shop (Bayou) gave me a copy of the equipment list. This is pretty much exactly what it says:

    EQUIPMENT PACKAGE $49.95 (Sold Separately $64.95)

    -Clinical Lite Stethoscope
    -Bandage Scissors w/ Colored Handle
    -Pen Light - Disposable
    -Hemostat
    -Blood Pressure Unit Economy

    Safety Goggles +$6.95

    The discounted price for the steth was $20, so hopefully you can save that!


    They told me shoes MUST be 1) All White; 2) Leather; 3) Full Front and Back (no slip-ons, etc)

    Bayou does give 10% off "professional priced shoes" for us. But I think I'm going to shop online and try to get a discontinued style at a clearance price.

    Just saw this post today- I will be joining you all in the fall!

    In regards to pre-req's, Psyc 202 needs to be completed before Maternal Child Nursing :
    PSYC 202 is a pre req for Mental Health & maternal child nursing & we take mental health in the Spring (if you follow the curriculum). Yeah u can take Adult 1, because the pre reqs are fundamentals & A&P 2.

    I will call them and make sure, but according to the Nursing Curriculum, the only pre-req's for both of the courses listed under the Third Semester (Mental Health and Adult I) are A&P2 and Fundamentals.

    The only course listed that has Psyc 202 for a pre-req is Maternal Child nursing, which makes sense because Psyc 202 is Developmental. . .

    And Clandry- the hemostats are not required. They just came in the packaged deal that the above poster had purchased. The supply list is:
    Stethoscope
    Bandage Scissors
    Black ink pen
    Penlight
    Portable blood pressure cuff
    Watch with second hand
    Goggles (which is supposedly supplied by BRCC)

    That's the way I remembered it as well. But I checked BRCC's website the other day when someone mentioned it here, and apparently it has changed. Psych 202 is now listed as a pre-req for Mental Health, which is one of the Spring classes. LINK

    So if anyone hasn't taken it yet, I would schedule it on Monday, just to be safe. But it's the easiest class I've ever taken, so I wouldn't stress..

    Yes it is. I've taken it already. I was telling everyone else to take it, because I herd the last nursing class had issues. They didn't realize it was a pre req for the next nursing course & waited too late to take it.

    I stand corrected.

    The curriculum I was given is outdated, evidently. Glad this was brought up, or else I may not have signed up for it on Monday!
