    Go ahead and get your assessment book and workbook - these shouldn't change. This is also probably the only book you will NEED to read (and read again), the others make good references. The other...

    I wouldn't say they are all "required", they can do a bit overboard with the books. If you are good with reading texts, or like to have them for reference - here is are the ones I would (personally)...

    August orientation dates are the 21st and 22nd. For sure the 21st will be all day, the 22nd is usually 1/2 day. All your ordered supplies will be distributed at the end of the second day.

    There are CPR classes offered on campus through TNSA (a student org, not the school). Classes are being offered the Monday/Tuesday before classes start.

    I can't say for sure they do or don't... What I do know is that TWU looks at GPA (which Ws don't count toward) and they will look at some classes to see if you made a grade the first time you took...

    Bicycle or motorcycle? There are bike racks by the garage exit, and I have even seen occasional motorcycles parked there as well.

    The different sections is just a thing for the university. Like you Lindsey was told, it doesn't matter. For the entire program, you don't get choices in the professors or times - everyone...

    You should be fine. The biggest concern is you need to have everything done before you go to the hospital (~6 weeks after classes start). If you don't have everything by Friday, you can still fax...

    Don't worry about the flu shot for this term. The flu shot for 2014-15 won't be available until around October, you will need it at that time. Also I found out that they are wanting titers (not...

    There is only one building for TWU Houston. When you walk in, there will be people to direct you where to go. There is an attached parking garage which I think is 9$ for all day (no in/out). If...

    If I remember correctly - you only need your shot records, but things may have changed. I wouldn't worry about getting titers done right now if you have your records. As far as money for...

    Welcome to some of the mixed messaging of TWU... They want you to have all of your shots/titers done by orientation (with records). However this isn't realistic, so they will have someone on campus...

    I am pretty sure there were Fall start students that did. I was a spring start, so it wasn't an option for me. The class is technically a BIOL course, so you may be able to look at the...

    The drug screen is done on campus one of the orientation days. I think it is the first day (May), but I am not 100% sure.

    Yes, you have the summers off. Which is good and bad. You can try to get externships (think paid internship) over the summer, work elsewhere or volunteer. You can also knock out electives (1 is...

    This place may not be too close to where you are, but they should be able to take care of all your lab work for cheap. Central Care Community Health Center I used them in December for my TB. ...

    Here is the brief version: Books - depends on what you buy and where from. Your required list of books is HUGE, most of which you won't need or use. However, they do make great door stops and...

    A high GPA? I would say so. It isn't easy, but I have never posted a "C" on my transcript (personal goal). There are people that make deans list (3.5+) each semester, and occasional 4.0s. There...

    Honestly - I don't see a preference anywhere. I have worked with nurses from TWU, UT, Lamar, out of state and out of country. Some hospitals and floors seem to have more nurses from a particular...

    Every admitted class is about 100 people, usually a few don't show up so I would guess the starting class is around 95 or so. All of your lectures will be as a single group (~100 students) then your...

    There is some disagreement on the lab book for assessment. A student on FB said she emailed the professor and they told her they were using a different lab book. The textbook seems to be correct,...

    I believe you should be ok, as long as you can show you are on track. Fax whatever you have as soon as you can and re-fax your new records when you have updates (2nd booster, positive titer,...
