I'm in team 4 and the course is up on blackboard!!!
School is closed through Wednesday, more days to study!
I just received an email from my instructor and it says that Tuesday we meet at 8:00 for class at a specific room # and that we're covering professional behavior, infection and immunity. I'm not sure if it's the same for everybody. Has anybody receive an email from the instructor? Oh and also on BB now under class tab there is outlines of what we're covering and when.
I logged in the bb site with regular ID and password (ID is everything before "@my.dcc email and password is 4 last digits of ss#) I didn't have to register for a course, it was already there on my bb page. I already printed out the calendar - looks like we're gonna be very busy!!!! I'm so excited now and NERVOUS!
How did you know you had a book voucher? I don't know if I have one. What is the value of the book voucher?
Mamisu so you also accepted awards, but it is not reflecting your account? I was starting to wonder if I was the only one. Strange, I have financial aid showing up in LOLA, but my account has a positive balance. Have you found out anything as to when it will start reflecting our accounts? I'm gonna go tomorrow and pay out of pocket for my ebooks. I just can't wait any longer on financial aid.
I am getting sooo frustrated about everything. First, even though I've already accepted my award, financial aid hasn't reflected in my acct yet and I'm so scared that they might drop my classes. I called the lady at that dept and she told me that the classes won't be dropped but you never know! I don't know how the book vouchers work also, I haven't bought the books we need yet. Second, because I haven't bought the books, I haven't done my assignments and school starts next week! Does anyone here live in the kenner/Metairie area that has books? Maybe we can plan like a get together to work on the assignments. Third, I'm so confused with the Blackboard registering for courses! There's nothing on there were we can register and give the password they gave us. I thought that by today we would be able to do this. I hope I'm not the only one with these frustrations :/
I thought that the lady who is the coordinator said that we are going to be able to use electronics in the clinical site but ONLY for educational purposes. The students that told us to not even bring it in to not have temptations probably said that because their curriculum was different than ours and since ebooks are required for us they have to let us bring in our tablet or what not. I was sitting in one of the front tables so, the course coordinator said that in front of our table that day (I'm pretty sure). It also says it in the syllabus they gave us. I'm sure that when courses are up on blackboard it will have more info on that.
Oh wow! That explains why since yesterday I've been trying to get in touch with someone in financial aid. I'm so thankful though that today as I was hanging up my last call to that dept. I saw an email telling me that my award was now ready to b accepted, so I logged in and accepted my awards! Yaaaayy!!! Now I have to wait until the 8th when they're releasing it to pay tuition and stuff. So check your emails guys!!!
About the navy blue uniforms, I don't which shoes u need to wear with that but I would think that it any tennis shoes would be fine since it is optional to get those uniforms and they didn't even mentioned those at orientation at all.
So, they said that everybody has clinicals the first day of school at CSN at 8:00am, but they didn't say how are we supposed to go dressed like since we're not having clinicals that day at hospital site. Does anybody know anything about that?
Thanx! @kubana87 also do u remember what did the nurse Pak come with? Thnx for all the info u give, it has helped me!
They told us that the eBooks were required for us to buy and the "bundle" is almost $500. So, if they r required for us (new in school) I wouldn't want to spend more money on buying hard copies if it's the same as eBooks. I would rather definitely have hard books but I refuse to spend more money on something that I already have but in different format, we already have to spend a lot of money for everything else . The only ppl the instructors were giving another option than the eBooks is for students who are repeating because they already have some of the books in hard copies from last semester.
For those of you that are already in the school, what shoes do u recommend us buying? Nurse shoes are like $120 and up :/ it says in the packet that we can use tennis shoes too but I would like to know from other's experience which shoes are better.
Has anybody gotten their financial aid cleared & processed? I applied for FAFSA like at the beginning of the year and it's not cleared yet and school is about to start. I'm freaking out because idk what's going on .
From what I understood, you can use the ID you already have if you went to Delgado because in October they're going to change the IDs and everybody will have to take a new one. He said you can get a new ID I think the media office is in the 3rd floor. The ID is $10 but we are already paying for one with our tuition.
Hello everyone! I enjoyed orientation too. I think I am also going to try to get the parking for $100 a semester at LSU lot. A instructor told us in the mini sessions we had at the end that since this semester starts with a new curriculum, we're going to start with clinicals waaaay sooner than past semesters and we're going to have it 2xs a week every week, I'm excited about that! I can't wait for tomorrow!
If they do orientation like they did last Fall (when I started), everyone sits with their clinical group.
How do we calculate our profile score exactly?
