  1. UMSON Spring 2013
    Congrats to everyone who got in for Spring 2013! I'm in the Spring 2012 cohort. I'll start off first by telling everyone to remain calm. It's not as bad as everyone says nursing school is. I've...

    That is beyond unsafe for patients. And I'm not saying that you're not good at your job, but there is NO WAY any person can give proper care to that many patients. Doesn't matter how amazing you...

    You have no one to talk to because you're on the computer instead of doing work. I'm part of the Flex Unit at my hospital and I feel out of place every day because I'm on a different unit every day....

  4. Baths!
    First off, I'm wondering how you can give proper care to 9-12 patients. That's a heavy patient load, and it's also a patient safety issue. What happens if you have a few fall risk patients who need...

  5. UMSON, Fall 2012...is NO ONE applying?!  :) :)
    Scrub tops range from $20-$35ish. Bottoms can be as cheap as $15 but up to $35 (that's how much my comfy ones were). I paid $35 for a lab coat, but they have cheaper options. I have 2 scrub tops...

    I got scrubs and lab coat at Scrubs & Beyond in Arundel Mills mall. Take your student ID and get 10% off. I suggest trying on a few different kinds (and don't wait until the week before school...

    Don't feel overwhelmed! It's just a different system. It took me a bit of getting used to, also. When I was at U of Delaware and at AACC, I felt like the advisors held my hand and always pointed...

    Orientation for Spring 2012 was 2 days. The dates/times weren't posted until like a month before, though. As for a previous question about scrubs- just a white top and khaki bottoms,...

    You'll get a letter with a form that you fill out if you're accepting, declining, or requesting deferment. When you send that back, send in your deposit (or you can pay the deposit online). Apple-...

    I got in my first try... but I'll tell you that it's probably easier to get in for the spring semester than it is for the fall. I'm not guaranteeing that this is true, but here's my logic: Fall...

    Congrats to all that got in! And for those that didn't get in this time, just tweak a few things & try again! Just a few months ago, I was in your shoes. I'm just finishing out my first semester...

    Grey Lady- Can you shed any light on the financial aid topic? I need to purchase books. In the past, I've always used my financial aid to do so- does the school offer book store advances? I'll...

  15. AACC Spring 2012 hopefuls?
    I noticed that today, too. And I got a bill in the mail. Interesting, considering I didn't submit the health form yet (I plan on attending UMSON) and they were very adamant that if you didn't have...

    I got the Fundamentals of Nursing text about a month ago when I was convinced I wasn't getting in to UMSON and would end up at AACC. Haven't had a chance to get past the second page.

    Amazon is awesome when it comes to text books. Do you have an amazon student account? You can sign up for it as long as you have a .edu email address. You get a free trial of Amazon Prime (which...

    I just called the office and apparently the form I sent was blank (it wasn't compatible with my Mac), so I had to scan in the document I printed and send it to them that way. …now, to wait 48 more...

    Nevermind, I just went back through the thread and saw that you're an MSN student. If I were you, I'd call the admissions office and ask about your acceptance letter. It's been 6 days, you should...
