    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.

    Hi got my letter, my schedule is TBA! for one of my classes I was told will pick my clincal date during Orientation, used this this weekend to put together the cost for doing the background checks, cpr, etc. I was told we would be given the list of books etc also on the orientation. Has anyone done their cpr certification yet?

    I havent done my CPR but I did register for it. I went to American Red Cross online and you can register for it there. Make sure before you select it that it says CPR/AED. There are only 2 open that are what we need. One for the 26th and one in May. It was 70$! 5 hour class. You can also get your shots cheaper at the health department or the shot nurse. I was quoted just 30$ for my shots and TB test at the health department.

    Is there anyone already in the program that knows what books we need so we can look for used ones ahead of time. Orientation isn't until August which seems a long time to wait.
    Kimberlynn thanks for the info on the shots and CPR/AED class.

    If you search the Spring 2011 hopefuls thread, there are several textbook suggestions in there.

    You are welcome Butterfly. I bought some cheap used books just to try to study Foundations and Adult health since I heard those were the classes that make alot of students fail. I called the bookstore though and they said that the books they have for the nursing department could change by August to newer versions so I wouldnt buy brand new books just yet. I wish we knew too, cause I would go ahead and buy them all now!

    I would wait until Orientation to purchase books because I heard they are changing books. Once school starts you don't a bunch of nursing books you don't need or can't resale. But if your are very anxious go to Southwest online bookstore to see if they have Foundations books available.
