    Hey! I just sent in my deposit and will be attending in the fall! It's going to be a 1.5 hour commute- I own a house so moving temporarily wouldn't work.

    Has as anyone gotten information on orientation or class registration?

    (Stats: overall gpa 3.4, science 3.1, four years as CNA and 2 years experience in MH/SA) but I applied once and was denied, I retook A&P I, orgo, Chem I and then took developmental, got more experience and was admitted this time!

    No class registration as it's the same for everyone in the program :-) for lab sections they split it up based on the alphabet!

    I think we had our orientation at the end of August or so! They will start sending info on things like scrub ordering/fittings etc.

    For N1 though, basically just plan to be on campus 8-5 Mon-Fri! Might have a half-day or two (while the other sections have lab... I used to have half-days Wednesdays and Fridays), but that time is great for assignments/studying.

    Hey CiaMia! When did you complete the program? And do you recommend to buy the books they tell us to buy?

    Hi CiaMia, I was wondering how much time typically would you spend after the 9-5 classes studying. Also are there breaks between semesters?

    Thanks

    December 2015 -- and yes, for the core/required texts, definitely! Or rent them from amazon at the very least.

    At least a few hours week, I think -- maybe ~8-10?
    There are breaks, yes! The most significant being in the winter.
