    Yeah I thought the LSBN application and the background check was something different. But the way she worded it confused me and made it sound like the LSBN application was the background check,lol. But yeah I'm gonna do my background check soon through the certifiedbackground.com website LSU recommends. And I'll probably go ahead and do the fingerprints and drug tests soon too to get it out the way.

    Wait...so if the LSBN application costs $62...then we need to bring the money for that to orientation? They haven't mentioned that to us...

    See I thought we were supposed to get certified during orientation when I got the email about BLS but obviously not. I am easily stressed out with dates and having no control over any of this, but I will say that I can't imagine any of this needs to be done before orientation and if we need any amount of money $50+ during orientation, I imagine you also have the option to attach it to your fee bill. And as other Katie said, many certifications and such expire so doing it early probably won't help. Most of this stuff we have to do is in prep for clinicals as I'm realizing so none of this is necessary until second semester and we have the whole winter break to stress about it. And I would be more than willing to carpool with people or group to get some of it done (I have a car and live in new orleans already, so out of towners and people that live on campus could ride with me or something). Doing it together may relieve stress on some of us too since we're all trying to figure this out. And if we're confused and all talking to each other, everyone else probably is too so we've got to all be in the clear.

    Yeah I called and asked about the CPR email because I was confused too! But no, we can't do that then. It's all very confusing But yeah I'm waiting till winter break for the CPR training. The background check and drug test and fingerprinting I'll probably do in August cause I think fingerprinting is needed with our LSBN application. I spoke to someone a week ago maybe saying we will get orientation emails. So they should be coming soon!

    The background check that you will be paying for is separate from the lsbn application. But the state board of nursing does their own background check on you. You don't need any money right away. They will tell you when your deadline is to turn in the application, money, and fingerprints. On the topic of scrubs, I was and still am clueless as to which ones are best! But I had black scrubs (don't recommend) but definitely recommend dark ones bc of spillage

    All the clinical requirements aren't "due" until the semester you start clinicals. The lsbn stuff is all done this semester to clear you to enter clinicals. Does that help?

    This has been a huge help, thanks so much! Also, besides what's listed on the nursing homepage, any recommendations on what to bring to orientation? Or what to wear? Can't wait y'all!

    I got a letter in the mail. It basically just had all the information for the intro to nursing class and what to bring to orientation. Has anybody else gotten it yet? What should we wear to orientation, does anyone know?

    I hope orientation has been helpful for everyone. I know it tends to get boring sitting in a classroom listening to speaker after speaker give their speech. Hopefully tomorrow's scavenger hunt will make things a little more bearable and fun. Congratulations everyone for getting into nursing school. Your journey to become a nurse starts on August 14th, but at least there is a back to school party to make the transition a little easier. See everyone tomorrow.

    Yep! I am! Scared me to get the letter. I wasn't home and had my mom open it for me while I listened on the phone for what seemed like FOREVER!

    It was my first attempt at the application process for thee program and man was I biting my nails waiting for a response.

    So far it's great. Need to study harder though and different from how I have studied in the past.
