    What you have heard is correct, it is tough right now for new grads. There are not a lot of spots open. I am hoping that they would take a BSN grad over an associates, which will help us, but you never know! Sharp will be opening their new grad program for January in September, and they will be hiring 100 new grads. Hope I'm one of them!!

    Congrats to those that just graduated and thank you all for your responses to my questions about the program. I have just a couple more....

    I have been reading that it is hard for new grads to find jobs....has anyone had good or bad experience with this?

    Also, I am curious to know what happened with all the alternates...were you invited to the program or are you reapplying?

    Thanks again!

    Wannabe07,

    Good luck with the program at Sharp....I will keep my fingers crossed for you..it sounds promising.

    Out of curiosity, how many of those that started the program with you graduated?

    Thank you very much!

    I am not sure how many we lost. I think we started with 70? And we gained 16 from the cohort ahead of us. Which means we lost 10? We had 76 grads last night. Not sure. But we were the largest cohort so far, the cohort in front of us had only 40 graduate.

    For those who ordered the ebook pkg...any word yet about the vouchers we received for a couple of our books? Can we send these back to Radcliffe's Book Store in the future to get these books?

    I was told these books come out 2x a year but the person I talked to also said she wanted to confirm this info with someone else. However, she never called me back

    A few have some but all of those are outside of SD. I haven't heard of any here unless they were already employed somewhere and will be rehired as a nurse. I think we are all focused on the NCLEX right now.

    Are there any Glendale alternates who have been invited/received a call to the Orientation?

    During the Open House, we were told that there were already a few students who declined and alternates who get invited to the Orientation are pretty much accepted.

    My grade to my last prerequisite just got posted and faxed in today - I hope they take me!

    Just business casual. Maybe jeans and a polo with closed toe shoes as requested. U R right....how do we tour labs when we aren't on our campus? Hmmm interesting

    so I went to ACE to change my scrub pants to another kind that is for women...sooo much better. However, when I was ready to pay Iwas told OU does not allow us to buy any other kind even if the color is the same...they want us all to look the same.
    I wonder if the students who are already attending the program were told the same but were able to wear other ones ...anyway I did not change them

    I thought I remember seeing a post on this thread not too long ago about someone getting cargo pant type scrubs instead...I sure hope so because I'm not a big fan of the "unisex" scrub pants. I haven't gotten mine yet.
