    They gave out like 6 packets. They are Scientific foundations, Fundamentals of Nursing, Human Development, Communication & Safety information. I guess you are supposed to buy the books to do the work in the packets. Personally I didn't have $600 to get my books yesterday so I'm going to have to figure it out before Sept 2nd LOL

    The Uniforms are awful white. Thank goodness we only have to wear them in clinicals. Our non clinical weeks we can wear whatever.

    Well I don't want to bust anyone's bubble but as far as earrings go we can only wear post/stud earrings. No dangling earrings allowed in clinicals. No strong perfume/cologne. No excessive make-up. No fake nails. No long nails and long hair has to to pinned up and off of your shoulders.

    Thanks for the heads up Trini, and you are right we need to support and encourage each other when things get tough. We need to stay focused no matter what happens at the home front. Life can sometimes derail people from their goals.

    I am alittle worried about the books. I didnt buy them that day. They really tried to scare you into buying them, (lol) they kept saying over and over again YOU WILL NEED THE BOOKS, ALL THE BOOKS ARE NEW, YOU CANNOT PURCHASE USED BOOKS, etc...

    Now, I am planning to shop around on Amazon.com and other websites. Anyone else planning to do the same?

    There is a bookstore in wantagh I think the school is affiliated with, you can go there or just order from the online bookstore they order from if you can't afford all at once. If you have buy the book "journey" it is written by two of the teachers and the edition doesn't change much so use the old edition if you have to. Trust me we all of the infomation in journey is in your main nursing fundamentals book.

    I don't remember them saying we couldn't get used books in my group but... I'll be shopping around. $600 just isn't sitting right with me

    Like I said Trini if you cant afford it right now shop around or order what you can now. Books like maternity isn't even cracked open till third semester. Your Nursing book and anatomy book is used earlier.
