    Hey all...i went down to the registration office today and they said it wasnt on their end so i had to go over to the nursing dept and after proving that it wasnt allowing me to register they did something that fixed the problem

    Wonder how much a titer would be...I am in my forties and had chicken pox as a kid but we didn't go to doctors!!! LOL....I have the big round scar from the small pox vaccine! I called the health department and they said the hep b was 70.00 a shot. I wonder what happened with that. I asked when I picked up my packet and the lady said to wait until orientation to do immunizations. I wonder if they will offer them at the school. I do have insurance but I need to check and see if it even covers immunizations.
    I am facing the same issue about having the chicken pox...because i was the first out of the three children to get the chickenpox my mother thinks she MAY have taken me to the doctor but she knows for a fact that she didnt take my brothers when they came down with it after me...so i have been on the phone with Kaiser and have been faxing them everything to get my records released to me and hopefully there will be an official diagnosis
    I hope the school offers the immunizations way cheaper...i knew the program was going to be costly to start but now adding everything up that i will need to pay for before my pell grant is made available to me is making my head spin

    Hello i wonder if this includes admin fee they charge every visit. And did they tell you about the hep a shots?
    It doesnt include the admin fee which is $16 for one shot or $25 for two or more shots...I didnt ask about hep a because i dont think the nursing students need hep a but i could be wrong about that

    Just an FYI about the immunizations for those of you in the same boat as me with no insurance...i called the clark county health department and the pricing for each is as follows Hep B $45 per shot 3 needed, MMR $75 per shot 2 needed, Chickenpox $105 per shot 2 needed, TDAP $60...so if you are in need of all the shots through the health district it will be $555...I am trying to get the records from my childhood doctors because the MMR I got will still be good and if you have official documentation stating you had the chicken pox you do not need the chickenpox vaccine...TDAP I had as a child but it is only good for 10 years so if you have your records showing you've had that in the past ten years you will be ok on that one as well...If anyone knows of a cheaper alternative please let me know

    On another note, how many of you are looking to purchase insurance? Anyone have any insight on which one to purchase? Thanks in advance! And I'll see all of you on the 9th!
    The school gives out the information for a company that charges about $150 per semester (at least that is what is was 2 semesters ago when I needed it for my CNA courses.) It is enough to count for the program but it really is horrible insurance that will only kick in if you are in some sort of accident with extremely high medical bills.

    The nursing program is considered FT. What do you need it for? You can get a letter from registration, I believe, that states it is considered FT. the class load is so intense that I wouldn't suggest other classes.

    And the toolbox class teaches you the math we use and how to write care plans. very helpful, IMO!
    I am using the pell grant and a loan to pay for my tuition and i know you have to be considered full time for the loan but if the school considers the program full time i shouldnt have any issues...i hope

    Is anyone planning in being at school right at 12:30 on Wednesday to pick up the packet? I have to go to first thing because I work right after. I wouldn't mind meeting some of you there!
    I have to volunteer at the elementary school for their Halloween party...i already had obligated myself before i found out about needing to get my packet...so i am going to have to wait til after i have been an appropriate chaperon for a bunch of hyped up 5th graders to head over to the campus to get my packet

    So a friend of mine who is applying next semester sent me a simple text asking if i had heard anything and i went into full panic mode texting back saying no and why did anyone else she knows get the call...instant panic mode from an innocent text...so of course i had to log back in here to see if maybe calls did go out after i started watching the world series(which my team totally won wooo hooo)...i REALLY hope the madness ends with a phone call tomorrow

    I am giving up for the day in order to #1 not continue to drive myself crazy worrying about a call that will probably not come until tomorrow and #2 Watch the San Francisco Giants play in the first game of the world series...Thank you all for being on here posting...it is nice to know i am not the only one in the anxiety boat waiting to hear if i got into the program...a lot of people just dont "get it" and tell me not to stress so it is nice to talk with people who understand what it has already taken just to be able to apply to get into the program and who understand how much getting that phone call will mean

    SERIOUSLY ARGHHHHHHHHH i cant wait til tomorrow...which seems silly since i have already waited almost two months since i turned my packet in but i cant take it anymore...i was calm about it until the 19th since then i have been twisted up every day waiting to hear something...and last night as i went to sleep i was calm because i figured today would be the day for sure

    No guarantee it will be today but it seems like there is a good chance it will be today
