    Congrats to all of you! I do plan to attend the reviews. Every little bit counts. I hope to attend Jeffs bridge program after RMH but at this point I just hope I make it through this I am so nervous. I hear so many stories of people who don't make it and it scares me. Yikes!

    Okay, enough of me being a Debbie downer. Did you guys get any further correspondance? When should we purchase the uniform? Some of the stuff they have on the web is from this current year.

    Not sure of any specific places but Roxborough, Manyunk, Plymouth Meeting, Andorra are all close by,very nice neighborhoods and full of apartments. Good luck. Where are you relocating from?
    Hey, Jayden!!...I remember you from a previous post....I too am going to Jeff to complete my BSN....kinda makes sense because I already have all the necessary prereqs done, but will be doing it while working 'cause I NEED TO MAKE WORK!!!....lol...

    Hi everybody! I was also accepted for the Fall 2011 class!!! I'm so excited
    I'm not from Philadelphia, so I'm in the process of looking for an apartment/roomates close to the hospital.
    Do any of you have any leads on that???

    Hey Nurse Betty, I do remember you from another post. Don't remember which one. Did you apply to AMH or Aria too? Just wondering if I saw you on one of those posts. Yea I pretty much wanted to start with a BSN program but hey baby steps. I am so ready to start. I have already started looking at stethoscopes! lol They have the new rainbow by Littman it's all the rage I am so excited. I don't think I have ever wanted the summer to end this quickly in my entire life :heartbeat. On the other hand, it will be here before we know it then we will be begging for some time to smell the roses Here's to us RMH SON class of 2013!

    I mailed my application on 4/21. Patty called me that Monday (4/25) to set up an interview, and I interviewed that Thursday (4/28). It was a really quick turnaround, probably because I waited so long to turn in my application. Good luck!

    Yes stethoscopes! I just google the word and many come up. They also have on the website their uniform store which is downtown. Thats where we have to purchase the uniform but they have other things, stethoscopes, shoes and things. Here's the website for new students http://www.roxboroughmemorial.com/In...dents_Home.php and here's the website for uniforms store which MUST be purchased by July 1st. http://www.centraluniforms.com/servl...ool/Categories . I think a facebook page would be good

    Hey JPK7908! Welcome! it was a fairly quick process. Once i interviewed Patti told me to give her about 1 week - 2 weeks and she called me somewhere in the middle and then i received my letter. She is a sweet lady very understanding she is a real person and understands us I think. She is an RN herself and she knows how tough this road can be. Let her know you are up for the challenge but understand that this will be a rough road but you are ready to take it on!

    You will be fine! Good Luck!
