    haha I'd rather get them out of the way in the summer so I can just focus primarily on the nursing ya know! haha trust me when I realized I had to take them again I did want to cry! and plus the way I look at it, it's cheaper to take it at CCAC instead of with Carlow! at least that way I have more money to put towards tuition!

    I am starting in the Fall also! My fiance said the envelope of papers came today and I cant wait to go through everything tomorrow! I also transferred classes in and need to schedule a cpr class. So happy I found this thread. I look forward to keeping in touch!

    haha congratulations to you too! so glad someone else has joined us! at least we can get to know each other before classes start!
    wait till you go through your papers! its so exciting! as soon as I got mine I ripped open the envelope to read all the information!

    Haha, I will be ripping through stuff too! I made my fiance read some of the forms over the phone! I have been wondering how the tuition forgiveness program works.The form says it covers the second year for qualified students? I have my bachelors degree and know I wont get a lot of aid, so it would be helpful.

    yeah I know whatcha mean. I think it's only for the people who want it? idk though I'm sure we'll find out more about it at orientation. I know having help paying for school would be a wonderful thing! I'm hoping they'll give us some information on scholarships too from different places. any little bit of money would help!

    Hello and welcome to our newest friend! Hope you have fun with your packet of information! It makes it so official!

    It does make it very official! I am so excited to start. I made a to-do list with deadlines on it to stay super organized! I have all of my clearances through work, so I just need to find out if I can use those (they are from the last month, so I dont see why not). I also scheduled my CPR course today, just checking things off! haha.

    Just stopping over for a quick hello.... everyone must be busy! And~ There is nothing new to report! I got my FBI clearnace back, and in 2 weeks I will do the cpr class... so plugging away. It almost can not get here quick enough. I wondered if any of you have been to the school and knows their way around really good? I was just wondering for orientation, do we have to go through the maze of hallways like we did to take the PSB? Is there a short cut? Is there an official seperate entrance? a map? hahah. I am not so sure I remember how to navigate my way back through there!

    Hope everyone is doing well!

    haha I was wondering the same thing!! I have no idea how I'm going to find it again! I take my CPR class at mercy on the 20th so I might be taking a walk around to see what I can find! I gotta figure out were we have to get our physicals done (is it in the hospital or a separate building?! haha they didn't give us very detailed information in our packets!)

    Ohhhh yeah... the place for physicals, too! Glad I won't be the only lost one! Atleast we have sometime to figure it out and call. My physical day is the 18th I think. If I go first, I will be sure to leave directions! Have a great weekend!
  11. by   SCB2011
    I will have no idea where I am going either!! Haha. I go for my physical on the 16th so I will try to remember directions! I was only at Mercy for the PSB also and it is hard to remember the maze around the work going on!
    I could not find information about the CPR class at Mercy so I signed up else where, but just curious where you found out about the one at the school?

    I have mine on the 9th so I'll let you guys know what I find!! I found the CPR class on mercy somewhere online it's through some association! haha is it august yet!
  13. by   SCB2011
    Haha. I know, I cant wait till august! I am ready to get started! I am excited for orientation too. It will be fun ordering the supplies and uniforms and hopefully getting a schedule!
