    Thank you for all of the information guys!
    Carlygh: My sisters husband has a pair of those shoes and he loves them. He said they are really lightweight and comfortable!
    Now that we got accepted, it seems like everything is happening so fast!
    Jenndavis: are you going to be living on/near base? My husband is in the military, so I will be living in Lawton and commuting to Duncan!

    Ok great! A lot of my nursing friends wear them and love them!

    I've heard the Nike Free Run shoes are really good too! Do you guys know if we do our clinicals and normal classes in Duncan or do we do the classes at Cameron in Lawton?

    Carlygh, I live in Lawton so if you guys are interested in carpooling I'm in!

    BoomerSooner31, carpooling would be great! Maybe we can set that up later! All I have seen about where we will be doing classes and clinicals is from an allnurses forum with a guy who had been in the program. He says that we can choose in the Fall whether to be in Duncan or Lawton when we are integrated with the other traditional nursing students. So Im guessing before that time, we will be in Duncan.

    Hey! I live on the north side of Apache Gate, towards medicine park, but yes carpooling sounds like a great idea. My husband will actually be PCSing in March. We were only here for 6 months for a school. My family is here though, so that helps. Do any of you know if the book list is current on the website. I checked and it is listed for 2012-2013. I would like to start ordering them but not the wrong ones. I emailed the Duncan adviser but haven't heard back yet.

    You can find the textbook list here. You have to kind of search through to find all the classes for this semester though.

    I looked on amazon and priced the books and it looks like for all of the books we need for the whole program it's about 1300(that's all new books) just FYI

    Just signed up to renew my CPR license. It stinks we have to renew every year. The one I have now is still current. If any of you need to get one I just called the education department at CCMH and they have a class on 17 Dec at 1pm. Cost is $34 and the lady I spoke with was very nice. Just gotta give 'em a call. Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

    I got some New Balance shoes at DSW in Edmond. They are all white and leather but they have a light silver "N" outlined on them. I hope that is okay!!

    That's how my asics are too! They are all white with silver accents I emailed the Duncan coordinator just to be sure and she said they were fine!

    Do your shoes have a mesh "tongue" or is it all leather?
