Hello everyone, I'm new to the site and I was wondering if there are any fellow CSN RN Spring '13 hopefuls out there. I just turned in my application today and I would love to get to know some of my potential classmates... Read More

    Does anyone know if the nursing students are required to get a flu vaccination? It is not on the requirments list, but you never know how up to date that may be. They offer it for free at work and I would rather get it now than have to pay for it later.

    Flu vaccine is not required, but it's a good idea to get it, especially if you can get it for free.

    I just had a bout of colds, got it from my lab partner, good thing it did not worsen and I was able to attend my clinical day last week.

    Hi again...I have gone a whole week with out obsessing over not getting the call yet...I feel like I should get a chip like they do in AA...j/k...So i have another question regarding the immunizations...I have received all of the shots including the Hep series but I have no documentation to prove it...does anyone know about how much it costs to get the titer lab run? Also where I would be able to do that?

    Good job with not obsessing! I can't say the same for myself. I still freak out every time I hear my phone ring, even though there is little chance that we will hear this week!

    I had my titers done and I went to a regular lab (Labcorp) because I needed my other labs done as well. I'm waiting for a hefty bill because my insurance does not cover it. I have heard that The Vaccine Center (the only one I know of is on Windmill & Bermuda) is cheaper. I would inquire with them! I wasn't thinking about a bill when I asked my doctor to order the titers. I was only thinking about only getting one blood draw :P and now I'm dreading the bill!

    Hello just reading through all this info. Thanks everyone for sharing! I also wanted to let everyone know that you can have your doctor order your titers at CPL lab. They have very low cash prices! It was only $35 for the varicella versus $200+ for the vaccines. Hope we all get good news soon!

    I am trying to think now in terms of days until we hear... We now have only have days to wait not weeks or months anymore, but I do agree this is not a lot of fun! I have class again on Tuesday so I am going to stop by the health advisors office again that night for any new news.

    Good luck to everyone. I am waiting also and the waiting is painful!!! Then I see so much negativity about dosages and calculations so I pulled out my book and started doing them just in case. I took dosages and calculations last year and did pretty well and I have never taken college level algebra as of yet. I don't remember any really hard algebra on the dosages and calculations. Unless it's called Algebra and I didn't know it! I have 30 points and hope it's enough to squeak by. I applied back in August. I love reading everyone's posts and I know it will be fine!!! Good luck and happy thoughts.

    I have 30 points as well and the nice lady at the limited entry office said 30 points should be competitive enough this term.
