Oh that's good, I'm glad you were able to get in! Are you in the nursing program at Brookdale?
The Brookdale class is really good. I had a lot of good people in my class and hopefully you will have Toby for your instructor- she is awesome! She is very blunt and has a dry sense of humor, but in a hilarious way! And she is a very good instructor.
As for the uniform, you are going to need actual scrubs
. They do not explain that well at all; the description should say that they mean scrubs. I don't know where in Monmouth County you are, but you can just go to a scrub store and they will have them. I went to Life Uniform by Monmouth Mall. As for a shirt underneath, I don't know. I don't think you would have a problem wearing one. We had some people with tattoos, but they were able to cover them up with tattoo concealer or large bandages. But if you have a lot, that probably won't work for you. I would just wait to get a top for underneath until the class starts so you can ask your instructor. Clinicals don't start for a couple of weeks anyway, so you won't be in a rush. And your shoes just have to be white, leather sneakers.
Overall, the class is pretty easy. A lot of basic patient care type stuff. The biggest thing is learning the skills for the state exam, but you will have lots of time to practice them. You take the skills test the last day of your class, then you wait for the results to come in the mail, and then you can register to take the written test.
Hope this helps, and if you have anymore questions, don't hesitate to ask!
