    For the background check did you guys just print out the receipt?

    Slynwilli, I think the receipt is all we need to show, but I'm going to call or go in to see my advisor a little before the August orientation just to make sure I have everything right. I'll post what I find out. I got the workbook for the toolbox course yesterday and started looking through the material we'll be covering. I am SO glad I signed up for it! There is a lot I am rusty on with the math and I will definitely need some help learning how to do the care plans.

    What is everyone purchasing supply-wise? I thought everything on that little red sheet that came in our packet was REQUIRED, but when I checked again, all but the uniforms/apparel items were only RECOMMENDED. I asked my mom who is an RN and she said I should really need nothing more than my stethoscope, pen lights, and a good clipboard. She said everything else is available in the hospital/clinical setting, but she also graduated a looong time ago...things may have changed. I have the items she told me get, as well as a pair of bandage scissors, but I don't want to be missing something that I might really need. Maybe some current students can offer some insight on what you actually did and did not need from the list, please???

    Where did you get the workbook at? how much was it? Also, with supplies, I haven't bought anything yet..

    apn11, I got the workbook at the West Charleston campus bookstore. It was cheap...5 dollars and some change, definitely the cheapest purchase I've ever been able to make in a college bookstore! Even if you're not taking the toolbox course, it may be worth it to spend the 5 bucks just so you have something to practice with on your own over the summer. About half of the problems in the book(they are marked as take home problems), have the answers provided so you'll be able to check yourself and see if you're doing them correctly. It also covers how to write careplans and has a section covering medical terminology.

    CSN SNA, are the 4 extra credit points for 101 definite then for joining the SNA? I remember hearing at orientation that it was still up in the air as to whether or not the extra credit would be offered. Will the facebook page give the exact dates of meetings or is there somewhere else that we should be getting that info?

    I got almost all of the things that were recommended, I read the supply lists that are on here and got the items that I saw the most. I'm so excited for toolbox!

    Has anybody gotten their equipment they ordered from SNA (stethoscope ect.) I haven't heard anything, just wondering if it's taking this long for everybody.

    The supplies are in, they all got sent to the office and I believe you get them at the next orientation. As far as SNA points, if you are active in the SNA and get the points offered, you will get extra credit points for any class with a lab and clinicl (101, 115, 243, 247, 248, 211). it's really easy and super fun! And yes, we will update the FB page with times for meeting and events as well as the angel page. We will be explaining how the point system works as well because everyone gets confused!

  11. by   SunshineDaisy
    No, we sent everything back. If you want an organizer you can get them for cheap at Scrubtastic!

    Does anyone know if you have to do clinicals on holidays? Such as my clinicals are on Monday's fall semester (this is my first semester) and Labor day is also a monday. Am I going to have to go to my clinicals on Labor day?

    Thanks for any info you have!!!

    As far as I know, there are never any classes on holidays (clinicals included). In the CNA class, All clinicals were off for the week of the holiday. Maybe a current student could confirm this?
