    I've had a CPR cert for about 6 years now and have taken classes at various places. Every state/area is different but some places offer free CPR classes. They are not very often (like once a month) at places that have them but it's definitely worth liking into. Try to look at hospitals on your area and community centers and community colleges. The price can vary dramatically in my experience (free or $20 compared to $100) depending on where you go. But again, it also really matters where you live.

    Also, make sure it's an American Heart cert., BLS for health care providers. You don't want Red Cross or some other course. American Heart is the most widely accepted

    You should start a new thread for your question, as this thread is only about Stony Brook's ABSN.

    Hi everyone!

    I was placed on the alternate list for the accelerated program, and was wondering if other alternates have heard anything yet? Congrats to those that got in, and good luck to everyone on the alternate list as well!

    Does anyone know when we will receive information about loans and financial aid? I completed my FAFSA but I doubt I will get enough to cover my out of state tuition. I've never taken out loans so I'm pretty clueless on how everything works. If I need private loans, when should I be applying for them? I called the aid office today and left a message but no response yet.

    @paco-RN: also, how important is it to have a car in terms of getting to clinicals/campus/etc ? i know you can carpool, but i was told that the students are split into groups and those who are in the same group as you may not live near you, so it may be difficult to carpool. i plan to live off-campus (if i end up deciding on stonybrook) with a couple other ABSN students and i know theres a chance that we may not even have the same schedules (they said this yr, they accepted 80 and it may be broken up into 2-3 groups since 80 is too big). i dont think there are any public transportation buses, besides the one that goes from the bus stop outside the lirr station to campus. i dont wanna end up walking to campus when its cold/dark out lol ):

    The group has an OPEN setting right now, meaning that the 600 million members of Facebook can read posts in the group (I can see all the postings, and so can the faculty of the school if they choose to search it out, and there *are* school faculty on Facebook and on here I am sure). I am willing to join the group to help you guys out with advice and info, but I prefer not to have my posts public like this. If the administrator of the group changes the setting to CLOSED, it will privatize the posts to only the members of the group. There are things to be discussed that should not be public information for anyone except the members.

    To be honest, it is EXTREMELY difficult to get around without a car in Stony Brook and in Suffolk County for that matter. Without a car you will have to depend on carpooling if you are assigned a clinical anywhere besides SBUH. The faculty makes an effort to match groups with at least one person that is willing to carpool, so there should not be a problem with this. Alternatively, you can petition the faculty (aka the powers that be) earnestly (lol) to have all of your clinicals @ SBUH, this way you have no worries of being assigned anywhere but SBUH (although even in this case, part of your clinical experience for psychiatric nursing entails outpatient clinical in Riverhead for part of the semester). The easiest way to have all your clinicals @ SBUH is by signing up to be part of Stony Brook 24, which requires you to have been a Suffolk County resident for at least a year prior to enrollment, something like that. You sign up for this when the program starts. All of you in the ABSN will have the same class schedules, but your clinicals may vary. They may be able to accommodate your request of staying together in one clinical group if you all plan to travel together. They try to work with you and individual circumstances. Suffolk County does have a public bus system, but it sucks and the schedules suck ... you're NOT in New York City, that's for sure. You can just forget about looking into that.

    There are 80 students now? Wow! The school is growing! Chances are there will be 10 clinical groups (as the max # of students in a clinical group is 8).
