    @Knh: Have you recently been on the bookstores website? Also make sure your looking at the right section numbers because I don't think the clinical one has any books. Clinical & lecture have two separate numbers.I'm assuming your in the RN program too but when you find them just get the isbn number & shop around. Be sure to verify authors, editions, etc to be safe.

    Hey guys (and ladies)

    Don't forget if you're part of the evening and weekend program that orientation is tomorrow at 8:00AM - 4:30PM in room 101 of the Health Science institute. The lady on the phone said to bring some money as we'll be ordering/buying scrubs at that time. I would not rush to buy books yet until we have class - I've spoken to folks that have taken the program before and they said to wait as each teacher is different and some of the books on the list may not absolutely be needed or can be substituted for general information found on the internet, apps, etc.

    It is a pain to get ahold of folks at the nursing department - my best luck has been calling between 3:30-4:30 (right before they close.) I'm not sure about the day classes whether your orientation is tomorrow as well or not.

    I look forward to meeting all of you! See ya tomorrow!

    Hey we day people just had our orientation today. So, if any of you evening / weeking RN people see this before class starts, expect it to probably last at least until 4 PM, because ours did today & a critical care test at the end of the session. It's not worth a grade, it's like taking the TEAS over agian but it's all basically critical reading & knowing where you stand thinking critically. Expect to get a lot of information thrown at you & a lot of paperwork too, it all seems like it's going to be quite overwhelming. They'll tell you everything you need to know tomorrow, & by the way they will give you an assignment, & they & I recommend you start on it this weekend because it's going to be A LOT of work. If I recall, it needs to be done before we start virtual hospital or clinicals but just so you know it's about 40 drugs in which you need to write out on flash cards & their uses, dosages, contraindications, etc.

    Hello,

    I just graduated from the night/weekend program in December and wanted to tell you all GOOD LUCK! I'm so glad they are continuing this program. If you have any questions for me, feel free to ask.
