    I think it said $34 when I looked it up online on the website. I haven't done it yet (grocery shopping & all lol) It came with our acceptance letter (I'm pretty sure it was the last page stapled in the back, conveniently lol.) Oh, btw (I had to read it twice, because I was so excited) for it to actually click in that "duh" I'm supposed to send in that little slip attached to our acceptance letter saying that I accept my acceptance into the program. I'll be sending it out this week along with my (gulp) verification form for financial aid. Yeah, unfortunately I have the distinct pleasure of getting chosen to be verified for fafsa/financial aid(hopefully, won't be too bad considering I haven't had a job in the last year (I attended & graduated school for medical assisting which ended up being a joke) but on the plus side, no job = no taxes had to be filed lol Hopefully, everything ends up working out for the best. Fingers, toes, arms, and eyes crossed.

    Ugh, with all the stress in that just came in a form of a tidal wave I don't even wanna know what my blood pressure must be. I might break the freakin sphygmomanometer!! lol

    You also have to purchase the ati package, which is an online membership $300 (you have the summer to get that done) then the books, which is pretty expensive. They will give you a folder full of paperwork including the booklist and the website to buy them from. Try and get used, unless they change the edition again like they did for me. You will find all of this out at orientation. Your lucky you only had a $200 deposit, it was $600 last year. As far as what to wear, something neat and clean as they will be going over the dress code for non-uniform wearing days. No bra straps to be seen! And as they like to phrase "no whale tales". No nail polish or fake nails and any visible tattoos have to be approved. You have all summer to get the uniform which comes out to almost $50 (one set, try and get two) not including shoes. It's a lot to get started but then once you in the groove of it all, it's not so bad. Good luck!!

    Ugh, I'm gonna cry. What exactly is an ati package? I was going to find a way to either rent books or buy them from someone who previously went there. Hmm, I have one little visible tattoo on my wrist (the Buddhist/Chinese symbol for Karma/Fate) I hope that ends up being ok. I already know I have to take out my tongue ring (I'm getting a little too old to still have it anyway, I honestly just keep forgetting about it lol) and well on the plus side at least I'll save money on not doing my nails.

    Haha, and I guess I won't bother to wear my engagement ring lol (I'll be slightly embarrassed if someone asks to see it and my nails look like a short stubby mess, I'm a notorious nail biter hence why I usually have fake nails lmao.)


    Thank you for letting me know about the ati package and the cost of it (I fear If I heard it for the first time at orientation I would have had a heart attack right then and there lol) So you most likely saved my life haha! Thank you for pretty much breaking down everything for me (and everyone else) you really have no idea how much of a help you have been, I really can't thank you enough.

    You will definitely stop biting your nails when you see the things you have to touch lol! The ati package is another way they teach. It is mandatory. Definitely wait to hear about books though, they could change it from this past year. The edition changes aren't too drastic, but if you have an earlier edition you cannot use the excuse of "well it wasn't in my book". It's up to you to make sure you have the current information. They throw a lot at you during orientation, bring a pen a small pad, but don't get nervous. And definitely do the summer assignment they give you at orientation, and don't forget to bring it with you the first day of class, they take that seriously. I dont know where your orientation will be I'm sure they told you that but they are changjng campus' starting in september. Again, good luck to you!

    Lol, I wish you could just stay another year and be in my nursing class. I asked the person who's selling her books if she would hold off until a day or two until after orientation so I could see what books I'll for sure need (that was def good advice) Yea, I heard that they were changing campus's (somewhere in Brentwood or something I think) Hopefully it will be easy to find and a pretty straight drive there. Oh and by the way since I know you will be finishing pretty soon, besides wanting to thank you seriously for everything I wanted to wish you Congrats on finishing and graduating =)

    Thank you so much, I will be there next year for level II. I have 3 kids and work full time, so even though I was offered the full time program I had no choice but to take the part time. It was so tempting when they asked me to do the full time, but I knew I needed to work. So I am finished with level I next week and will be back in sept for level II. I graduate at the end of march. But we won't be in the same classes unfortunately, since I'll be starting with med-surg and you start A&P, vocation and fundamentals. I still need my books otherwise i'd sell them to you. My biggest advice to you is once school starts, pick up the Barron's "A&P the easy way" book, even if you don't read the whole thing, study the questions at the end of each chp. Just sayin, those questions are extremely helpful and may be seen again. Yes the campus will be in Brentwood maybe like 2 miles from the existing campus. Good luck at your orientation, it doesn't take as long as they say it does and it's pretty straightforward.

    Thank you! Good luck tomorrow!! It's easy, you'll walk out of there saying "that was it?" Lol. Get started on your summer assignment early, it'll be worth it. My summer assignment for level II is huge but I'm getting a good start on it. You'll see, once you get your books your going to want to rip into them ASAP! Well at least that's the nerd in me! Again, good luck tomorrow!!

    OMG...I about died when I read your question and seen the examples. I just received my guide today and I'm starting to look it over. I am so scared because I only have one time to not only pass but score high. My advisor never told me that this testing needed to be done prior to start of program. So here I am scrambling to get the guide and study till I drop. I am so scared due to math and me not being the best of friends But I have faith that I can do it...all I need now is some confidence. I live in GA and I'm sch for 08/14/13.

    Lol, so I have yet another random question (this time it's about the summer assignment lol) Do you think it's better that I type and print the outlines (on computer) or hand write them (which I personally prefer actually, and have already started doing.)

    I was originally thinking about doing both (so I'm extra prepared) but my fiance told me I would be absolutely insane to do that, seeing as I already have written (hand written) two full pages of my outline, which is only covering about 3 paragraphs in the book lol. I'm probably the only person in the world asking about hand-written verse computer written text in this day in age, but I've been so used to (and automatically prefer) hand writing everything out, because I find it helps me study so much better.

    Other then that, how's your summer going?? I hope good =) Also,How's your assignment for level 2? They still haven't fully set up at Brentwood office yet (I had to go to the Bellport office last week to sign more financial aid paperwork.) but they should be all done soon.
