- was this all your books for the program of just the first semester???Last edit by Db11186 on Aug 2, '12
- Quote from Jag10000Thank you for the Good Luck wishes!
I went over to get books today and I can tell you this...the books and other things we needed were a lot of money up front. Almost $1,500 for all the books (some used), the stethoscope, lab pack, 2 sets scrubs, patches, and lab coat. Also, the drug test, titers, vaccinations, and physical was about $350 total at Crittenton. I did need to start the Hep B series, had a TDap, had to get another MMR vaccination after titers, physical, and TB test. I still need to get and pay for 2 more Hep B shots. Also, the Ace Passport was $50 and my classes were almost $1600 (not a resident of Macomb). So, start up costs were roughly $3,500 for the first semester.... Yikes!! But, it will be well worth it in the end!! I'll let you all know how it goes.
Also, the Bookmark is a great place to get the books cheaper!!! And, it's right down the street from Center Campus at 19 mile and Garfield.
those were just your books for the first semester??
- has anyone used digital textbooks or know if there is any available for the nursing classes?
- Aug 3, '12 by ramonlI'm a Jan Start! Seems so far away!!
- Aug 3, '12 by ramonlI contacted MSU and you can apply as early to MSU as early as your first semester in the Macomb program, however, in order to apply you must have the additional prerequisites completed at Macomb before you can apply to MSU! Hence, I am a January MCC start so I am cramming all additional prerequisites for the MSU program into the fall semester, a whopping 19 credits, so I can apply in Januray. This is too good an opportunity not to at least try!! You can check what the additional prerequisites are on the school home page and search RN to BSN program and it will show you the necessary courses. Only 60 credits will transfer so this will ensure all of your credits transfer to MSU. Also, they take 40 students at a time, with 4 different start times, like MCC. Good Luck everyone!!
- Aug 3, '12 by Jag10000The books were for the first 16 weeks. I am thinking we will use some of them later (like Clinical Calculations, Review for the NCLEX, and of course the Medical Dictionary-encylopedia set). Also, the Passport was online test....3 of them, pretty easy. It's like a learning module...so, no studying ahead necessary. The lab pack ... I peeked in really quick, it had syringes, IV bag, I think Catheter stuff, IV tubing and more. My kids were around, so I really didn't have a chance to take it all out yet. I am getting excited though!
- Aug 7, '12 by jeberger2007Hi everyone,
August Start date is growing too close. I hope everyone knows that there is reading that has to be done prior to classes. I think its for NURS 1165. Anyway I'm curious if anyone has picked up the
Macomb CC Clinton TWP Pkg. I'm curious as to what it includes. I went through all my lists and books trying to figure out which books I still need. If someone could send the message that would be great!
- Aug 12, '12 by Db11186two questions... has anyone with an october start received a "checklist" of things thats need to be completed before the start of nursing? i need to find somewhere that i can take my ACLS really soon, any suggestions? Also are we required to wear our scrubs to all classes or just the clinical classes?
- Aug 13, '12 by wigtonaQuote from Db11186DB11186- I haven't received any kind of checklist yet, I've just been doing stuff that they talked about in the orientation. I don't remember what they said about how to do that passport thing. Anyway, about CPR: this place does the BLS certification BLS Healthcare Provider: Basic Life Support Trainingtwo questions... has anyone with an october start received a "checklist" of things thats need to be completed before the start of nursing? i need to find somewhere that i can take my ACLS really soon, any suggestions? Also are we required to wear our scrubs to all classes or just the clinical classes?
and also there is a place in Richmond, MI that does a class every month, the august one has passed but I'd still call and see when the next one is CPR Training | Richmond Area Chamber of Commerce. I did mine there, only $50 and just a few hours plus a test.
The nursing secretary said we are only required to wear scrubs to the clinicals. I don't know about you, but at least one day I have class then a clinical right after so might as well just wear it all day rather than change in the car!
