    On the bright side, you'll be graduating in a few months or a couple semesters and will be able to sit for the NCLEX.

    I am about to begin the PT evening program. I recently heard some....grumbling, from other students regarding the FT day program, but (until now) nothing negative about the evening program. I'm trying to maintain my excitement, and just remembering that no matter where I go, people will have had mixed feelings about "x" program....
    That's true. I'm still excited. I can understand how clinical rescheduling can frustrate students who have other commitments. The unorganized admin stinks, but not enough to make me decide to wait another year (or more) for another program. The educational aspect of the school seems fine to me.

    Just got my uniform today! Have you bought your stethoscope yet? I ended up getting the Littmann lightweight.

    I agree, so far I've had a great educational experience at QC and I am so excited to begin this new leg that I couldn't imagine waiting for another program! I got my uniform a week or two ago- the pants are huge and reminiscent of my dad's old Navy uniform! I ordered a stethoscope, its a littman, i think the master classic? i read really good things about it online. Did you order a lab coat from McGill's?

    I heard great things about the littmann master classic too. My pants are way too big as well (and too long)...I might have to bring it to a tailor. Yeah I ordered the lab coat from McGill's during the orientation so I received it along with the rest of my uniform.

    Crap! The person I checked out with asked me if I wanted the sweater, but I declined. That was it. No other items were mentioned. Meanwhile, the person next to me wrote a check much larger than mine and I was racking my brain trying to figure out what they bought! Owell, I will have to order one right away. How did the lab coat run? I wonder if I can exchange the pants....

    Do you have any idea when we will hear back about the clinical and lab assignments we requested?

    My lab coat is 1 size smaller (men's size) than my scrubs. My scrubs are actually pretty loose and I could've gone one size down, but I like it a bit loose. I didn't even realize that we need to wear lab coat 'til I got the lab sign-up sheet...I would've ordered an extra one.

    I don't know about the assignments, but should be able to find out more next Tuesday (I'm going to the Quincy campus) I hope.

    I will order a size down from my scrubs! Good luck Tuesday! Did you start the reading yet?

    Hope the size would work for you as well. But you can always ask them when you call...they may know even more.

    Yeah I started reading the fundamentals book. It's quite a bit of stuff. I'm not sure where those videos are though, so I guess I'll find out more when she goes over them. Have you started?

    btw..are you taking any other classes this semester? I'm taking History online...hopefully it's not too much.

    Yes, I've started the reading and I am assuming the videos are on the disc that came with the book- I just haven't played with it yet. I am not signed up for anything else this semester but you have reminded me to make sure all the core coursework I had done in my BA transfered over!

    What history class are you doing? I'm sure if you stay on top of everything you'll be fine- the program technically calls for multiple classes this semester

    I'm taking US history 101 (online). I never took history in college (avoided it with at all cost)..hee

    Ha ha too funny. I couldn't tell you which history class I took, but I distinctly recall suffering through it so hopefully it carries over! It was labor intensive! Did your English comps carry over? My freshman seminars have obscure titles, so I'm sure I will have to dig up an old course catalog (as I've had to in previous transfers). Ugh.

    yeah everything carried over except the computer course because I took it about 15 years ago. I took QC's intro computer course online last semester. QC seems pretty good about accepting transfer credits so you should be fine.
