    You are at the right place, you are going behind the nursing annex, I go there and can't remember the name of the building(pretty sad). No you won't have to pick your schedule on Friday. You will get an opporunity to pick your clinicial day after Orientation in August. So my advice is look at the class schedules(like you are registering for class) and keep in mind that you want that clinical day. I know that the Daytime program has clinical days on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. It is a first come first serve type of thing but you will have to wait until they give everyone directions on what to do once Orientation is over but I was able to get exactly what I wanted with no trouble when I started.

    When I went to sign paperwork, I had to pick a clinical right then. We picked our class time and clinical day. Then received an email later with a permit for that specific class to register.

    The nursing annex is on walnut street south of the main campus. It is not the allied health building, so dont get confused. It hides behind another building.

    I think you may have started in the Spring semester? The Fall semester is done differently, we could not do anything until after Orientation in August. After orientation we had to email the dean our permits and she would reply back saying it was ok to register for the class. Also, in the Fall one of the clinicals are different, they have a Friday/Saturday split clinical, so the first 6 weeks you have clinical on Friday at the campus then when we went the hospital your clinical day changed to Saturday. And we also had the option to have a clinical on a Sunday. Preparing for the Spring semester doesn't give much time compared to the fall because Foundations would start at 12:30p or 2:45p but once you move on to the other semesters your classes start at 9:10a. They just had us sign our paperwork and told us don't do anything until after Orientation. And plus the dean is out attending meetings so she doesn't have access to issue permits right now. The spring semester might be a little more organized. The fall was extremely disorganized.

    I don't know if I'm excited to get things underway, but I guess you could say it is a challenge I'm ready for. Anyways, I'm going up there around lunch time and I'm wondering if all the staff takes the same time off for lunch. That would stink if I take my lunch break to go sign a paper and it turns into a 2 hour affair. But hey, something tells me I should get ready to jump through a lot of hoops from now until the start of classes.

    Is any one going to be working while taking classes? I will be going there later in the day too, I called and the Lady said as long as i was there before 3 pm it was fine.
    Where exactly is the nursing building, do u walk behind the allied building? I hope I won't waste precious time looking for it!

    Just got back. You will be picking your class schedules today with the exception of clinical, which you will get to pick later. So if you have a particular schedule you want, try to get there as soon as you can.

    I'm only taking nursing classes, the class sequence is structured so I am taking what is allowed Foundations, Dos & Sol, & Found Clinical.
