    I'm curious if anyone has information on Vandy's program. Does Vanderbilt Medical Center have tuition reimbursement for employed nurses getting their MSN at Vanderbilt? If so, how much?

    I'd love to do the CNM/FNP dual focus in the future (I'm currently finishing my BSN), but the cost of attendance is outrageous. Any information would be much appreciated.

    I'll see what I can do..

    What would we be? LSON class of Summer 2016? Or class of Fall 2016?
    It would really depend on who decides to do the last semester during the summer, and who decides to do it in the fall. I imagine there would be people doing both. There are rules about what your grades have to be to take summer nursing courses, too.

    Maybe Fall is best.

    Ms Whitwell will send you an email telling you where to find the CRN numbers (under "registration status" on mymemphis). You copy those numbers and paste them into the CRN boxes on the page to register for classes.
    I got mine today! I think Foundations of Pt-Centered Care, Health Assessment, Patho, and Intro to Professional Nursing are the same for everyone, but I'll post my other classes - do any of you have the same ones?

    Professional Nursing Seminar - T - 8:30
    Health Assessment Lab - T - 11:45
    Foundational Nursing Skills - W- 7:00

    My background check went through last night, so I should be getting my schedule on Monday! So so excited!

    My school just charges for credit hours, however, we also have an extra $60 fee for each NURS class.

    Just emailed all of my health data tonight! Hopefully she'll be sending the classes in the next day or two.

    I went to Landau and tried on scrubs before I ordered from them. They're a lot bigger than I expected, so I'm glad I tried them on first - I'm a size 4/6 and ended up getting the XS scrub pants and top. I may have to have them hemmed too... I'm 5'4" and they seem so long! Maybe with the thick soles on my shoes they'll be okay, but they're really dragging the ground otherwise. Lol

    I had my physical done 2 weeks ago, and I'm still waiting on them to call me to pick up the form I left there - the blood results apparently haven't come back yet. I think I'll call today, because last time it only took a week. I neeeeeeed to know my schedule, and today is the first day of registration! Even though it doesn't matter when we register, I'm STILL getting excited about actually doing it.

    I took a&p online at U of M, so I can't say that it's exactly the same, but if you have the self-discipline to do it, then do it. You have to make sure to schedule absolutely every little assignment and keep up with the discussions and lab work.

    I don't see why your mom thinks she wasted her money... After all, you are IN college, and learning is a great thing, even if your first degree isn't used in quite the same way that a nursing degree would be. You still learn valuable tools and skills in any area of study.
    I'd mention that if you don't do what you genuinely want to do, you may just have trouble finishing it anyway - I've known people to just drop out of a program because it wasn't what they really wanted, and they started all over. Your mom may want you to go to PA school, but in the end, it's your life, your future and your career.

    I did have to reapply. Thankfully it still worked out. it's good to see other mamas going through the program, too!

    I'll bet you could call her and set up a different time - I ended up taking a class that wasn't even on the sheet. She's extremely flexible. but maybe the u of m class is better as far as scheduling goes - and you still have 5 months to get the card, anyway.

    I took CPR/BLS a year ago after I got my first acceptance packet (long story.. I had a baby and put off ns for a year) from a lady in Southaven. CPR 2 Go, I think? The sheet for her was in the packet that semester. It was an awesome class done in her home, and we got our cards the same day instead of having to wait for them like the U of M classes.
    I'm glad you can get shots done at a reasonable price! Yay!

    Did you find out if they do titers? That might be cheaper... Or maybe you could call your previous states' health dept for records?

    The health dept should have your records, even if the doctors that you've seen your whole life are gone. I'm not sure if they do titers, but since they'd have your records, I don't think there'd really be a reason to.
    I just chose to get titers done from my regular doctor about a year ago because I had completely lost everything and couldn't get in touch with any previous doctor... (And with tncare, it was free.
