    Well, I dropped off my seat deposit today! And my doctor's office fit me in for an appointment this Thursday! Yay! I so can't wait for orientation
    Haha, lucky you!! My doctor has no opening for about 9 months. Thankfully she had a NP who has openings sooner than that, but the first available appointment when I called Monday morning wasn't until June 14th!
    When I spoke with the Nursing Dept. yesterday, they told me that as long as everything is done prior to the start of classes, I will be fine. We do not register for classes until the end of August. Also, for anyone who is concerned about parking (since you have to register for classes before you can buy a parking pass) I was told that there will be special accommodations for Nursing students.

    Lol, I was surprised that it was towards the end of August too. The person I spoke with in the Nursing Dept. said it was partially because the nursing classes are only open to us nursing students, so there is no worry about the classes filling up. They know exactly how many of us there will be. Waiting until the end of August to have us register will allow time for everyone to pay their seat deposits, get their physicals, vaccines, CORI's and CPR classes taken care of. ( Also, it will allow the school some time to send out acceptance letters to any waitlisted students if a spot opens up)
    I think a fb group would be a good idea. It will make it easier for us to communicate once classes start.

    I really hope parking is cheaper because I grabbed a sheet from the Enrollment Office today that said parking was $50 for Mon/Wed!! Same charge for Tues/Thurs students. That would be ridiculous, even Boston is cheaper than that. Guess I *might* have to take public transportation..

    Also I got a sheet with a breakdown of each semester's costs (including the non-nursing reqs) from an advisor. It's just our curriculum again only with exact costs on the right. Thought that was useful, especially since I didn't know tuition/credit would be fixed from the time you get accepted (nice!).

    So excited for orientation. Too many questions. Can't wait to meet you all!

    Does anyone know of any places that we can take the CPR class that QC will approve of?

    I did the BLS for Healthcare Providers back in May through Health Ed of New England. The woman who owns the company was the one who ran the class and she was great. It was $45 and the Certification is good for 2 years. CPR, AED and First Aid Training - Greater Boston, Southeast Massachusetts, Cape Cod - Health Ed of New England is the link to the website. Only downside is that she does not have a class in this area until July, but our letters did not say that we need the certification before Orientation.

    So here it is, 3am and I find myself wide awake and completely wired! I was laying here in bed for about 10 minutes trying to figure out why, and the only answer I can come up with is that I am just way too excited/ anxious/ nervous/ impatient etc. for Orientation.
    I guess I didn't really notice how anxious I was because I have been super busy getting ready. I have been figuring out my financial aid. Moving money around so that I can order my uniforms on Wednesday. Scouring the internet trying to decide what shoes to buy. I scheduled my physical (and checked with the school twice to ensure that I will not lose my spot since the first available time for a physical at my Dr.'s was not until the day after orientation.)
    I already have a stethoscope, bandage scissors, kelly clamp and penlight. I have even bought some school supplies. I took the BLS for Healthcare Providers back in May. I have copied the front and back of both my license and my BLS cards. I have everything ready and waiting on my desk.

    So how is everyone else doing? Am I the only one that is really anxious?!? Lol, am I the only one that has already purchased school supplies?
    See you all on Wednesday!!!

    No you are not! I can barely focus on anything else. No matter what I'm talking/thinking about, I find a way to bring it back to school. I haven't purchased the supplies yet, but I must have been to Work n Gear and Staples 10 times in the last two weeks so I could figure out what I want to buy!! I think my friends and family must be so sick of this already and school hasn't even started yet
