    Hi everybody.....I just recently got officially accepted to PBSIN......my acceptance was pending grades for classes I took this summer. They have mailed me the information packet and a request for uniforms. Because of my late acceptance I missed the uniform fittings. Did anyone go to the uniform fittings? I'm currently a medical assistant and I wear the unisex scrubs size small. The order form they sent me is female specific so I don't know if they run the same........Can anyone help??

    Hey thanks for the advice on the books. Here is my next question, certain books are like 100 dollars for the new editon and like so much cheaper for the last edition. Do we need to have the up to date edition? Also in terms of ordering a uniform, I am from out of town so I could not go for a fitting. They send you an order form just use that one.

    I found the uniforms ran a little big, or at least true to size. You should be fine with a small if that is what you normally wear. The tops are shapeless and unflattering on everybody so we're all equal ;-)

    You will be fine with an earlier edition for most of the books, as long as it is only a couple years, not 5. The only thing is teachers may assign tables or charts to know, or pages to read so you just need to check with a friend who has the new book to make sure you are covering the right info.
    Are they assigning the Taylor Fundamentals book with the Skills DVDs as a set this year? The DVDs can be hard to find alone (they were last year) and are useful. (that would be the only reason to get a new addition, if it saved money getting the set)

    They want us to get fundamentals of nursing, and a set of some sort. Do you think you can PM me since I do not know how to use this thread and maybe we can exchange emails there?

    Hi everyone, I have not been on the site for awhile now. I am still excited about starting in Septemnber. I went through some contenplating during the summer because I got accepted to Queensborough CC after I gave in my deposit to BI. But I really analyzed the 2 schools even though QCC is closer to m house and a lot cheaper, I think BI which was always my first choice is the better choice. I did not get to go the fitting either but I am just going to get measured and send in my order form.

    Hi everyone,

    I am starting at PBISN in about a month and I'm doing the 3-year option. Do any of you 2nd year students know if 3-year students have to buy a PDA for the first year? Or is it just for students taking nursing classes and doing clinicals? I'm not really clear on what to get, and I'm hoping that I can postpone it until next year when I have a better idea!

    Thanks so much.

    Nevermind! I got an answer already from Mrs. Gallo—PDA not required until the 2nd year for 3-year students.

    Enjoy the rest of summer!

    I would agree that CUNY sucks. I was trying to get into Bronx Community College (I live right next door) and I needed some remediation in math. Well, I took the necessary steps to do so. I was in the midst of transferring from Fordham Univ just to get into their RN program. Well, they jacked up my GPA from 1985 when I first started there and never cleaned anything up. They require Math 03 as a prereq for A&P.....subjects are not related at all. Then, you have to take PAX-RN. Come on, it's ridiculous. So, I will do two more classes at Fordham and transfer into the College of New Rochelle and get my BSN. CUNY can forget about it. A good two year school for all you Beth Israelers is the Cochran School of Nursing in Yonkers.

    My status still says "Applied" too. But it does look like the Developmental Psych class I registered for changed from Tuesday 1:30-4:20 to Monday 9-11:50!
