    All of my friends that are starting Sentara Nursing in January have purchased the Littman Classic II SE scope. By the way Barnes and Noble updated the online book list for 108 but I ordered everything on Amazon for a LOT less.

    SipesMD did we get any info on what we need other than our books and uniforms? I know we need stethoscope, but are there any restrictions, such as color, and do you know of anything else we need? I know we also need an analog watch with a second hand.

    I'm not sure exactly what else we need but I signed up for Camp Nightingale on January 11th and I think that will be very informative!!

    It is not impossible to get in. I had all of my pre reqs except A&P 2 completed when I applied, with a pre req gpa 4.0, my cumulative gpa was a 3.8 I'm not sure which gpa they went by.

    The HESI wasn't too bad. But my overall score dropped a lot because there is chemistry on it and I never took chemistry in my life so I pretty much bombed that section. I got a hesi review book and it helped with all other areas to brush up on. My overall score was a 79.71

    I had 4.0 on all of the prerequisites and a 92.86 on the HESI but I have heard that people also got in with B's in Anatomy and HESI scores in the 70's. The school is very tight lipped about the selection process. Good luck to you!!

    Frankie911 I sooooo know how you feel. I too was in your shoes last year. I applied for a cohort to start back in august last year and I was an alternate. Everyone tried to tell me how great that was since the program is so competitive however I felt horrible. Put it this way, they didn't say no and you didn't get that letter saying unfortunately you didn't get in so don't be discouraged. I wasn't called in as an alternate but a few people were ( one person was called the day before so be prepared). I went through the whole process of getting insurance and physical , went to orientation provided all paper work to get let down again. so what did I do, I applied again and I GOT IN !! That was the best feeling. To make it after all my hard work was wonderful. I am in the last week of clinical for 130 and will be starting med/surge after spring break ( Nur170) Gave my first injection which was awesome. DONT give up ! You can do it. I am a single mother of two and I work and go to school full time. Nothing is impossible. Best of luck and blessings to you . Please keep me posted. Feel free to inbox me if you have any personal questions

    Hi Nurseinthemaking. Thank you for responding and for the wonderful words of encouragement. I find myself sitting here, yet again, waiting for "that call" to come to pull me off the alternate list for the March 2014 Cohort. Beazley email says the "next big update for alternates" will be between March 7-12, 2014 - so while I am not holding my breath (need a break from the let downs) - I do hope the call comes. I have reapplied for the fall 2014 cohorts of August and October. I am in no way giving up - it has been a long hard journey thus far, but I know it will be well worth it in the end. I was hoping to not have to wait so long (august,october) to get in, but it is looking like that is where I am heading. It was difficult to attend the mandatory orientation, order uniforms and skills kit "just in case" you got the call - then to not get the call...aghh. I hope you are doing well with your classes and I wish you the best of luck through the course of the program. You sound as though you will make a fantastic nurse. Best of Luck
