I posted this on the Pre-nursing forum but no responses to date. First of all, congratulations to all who have been accepted in to the nursing program of choice and to any new grads out there! I was finally accepted into the nursing program of my choice (YEY!!
I'm finishing the last few things before orientation and already selected my Fall schedule. As I wait patiently for classes to start, I was wondering if there are any current Durham Tech students or recent graduates who could share something about your experiences with the program.
Do any of you have any advice? Anything I should keep in mind over the next two years? Anything I should get started on? Can you tell me more of what I should expect? Anything would help, such as technical requirements or tools that helped you - did you have a PDA? did you use a laptop in class? I'm waiting until August to pick a new phone/PDA and laptop. Are iPhones allowed?
How hard or easy was it to get a job upon graduation? I'm assuming most of you are local to the Raleigh/Durham area. Did you go with the hospital where you were doing your clinicals?
Thanks in advance for all responses!
