Roane State Nursing Students?

  1. 1 I just joined this site in May, after I got my letter for NS. I was just wondering how many people out there are attending Roane State's Nursing Program?

    Hey,I will be there Friday too! I was beginning to think no one was going to answer this thread! My name is Beth. We will probably see each other but won't know it! How old are you ,are you married, any kids? I have three kids and I've been married 19 years. I am 40 yrs old. If you want to exchange names and such pm me, I am going out of town today and won't be back until Thurs night, but I will check in when I get back!

    Hey Sabrina welcome to allnurses at RSCC! LOL! The test for NS entrance is over basic concepts, reading comprehension and algebra, spelling, some basic math some English, also some Biology and Chemistry. I took the TEAS test in January and it wasn't hard, in fact my test didn't even have any hard Chemistry on it! I have a Kaplan book to prep for the test I will gladly sell to you for 15.00. I bought it for 19.00 plus tax. It really helped. PM me if you are interested.

    I'm taking my prerequisites this year at the loundon county campus except for my a&p lab that I'm taking in Harriman on Tuesdays. But i think that if i'm admitted in to the program for next year that i want to take my classes in one of the knoxville campuses.

    I go to the Oak ridge Campus, I like it very much so far. The Knoxville Campus is very small and there is no library, or cafeteria, or bookstore, like there is at Oak Ridge. If you get in the program next year, you will take a CPR class at Knoxville before school starts, so you can look at that campus then. I may take one class there in the Spring because they do clinicals at Parkwest where I used to work, and we have OB clinicals in the Spring. The Oak Ridge campus does most or all of their clinicals at Methodist, which is nice too, I just don't know anybody there. Maybe we will be seeing each other!

    I might go to the Oak Ridge Campus. I guess it just depends cause I live in Maryville so its a long drive. Anyways, we has this orientation yesterday and we met with the nursing advisors. They said it would very difficult to work and go to nursing school. Does anyone know anything as to how hard it is? Also, she said the first year you have to wear white scrubs? Do you have to buy directly from them, or can you buy your own white scrubs from somewhere else?

    I found it hard to work when I was finishing my prereqs, but I have 3 kids and a hubby, and I was taking math which is hard for me anyway. Lots of people have said on here it can be done.We wear white scrubs to clinicals for both years except our OB rotation we wear burgundy. You get them on your own, just don't have any color on the scrubs and all white shoes, no clogs and no cuffs on the bottom of the pantlegs, (you know the knit ones that make the legs look like jacket sleeves). You will buy patches at the bookstore to put on your left sleeve. You can buy a lab coat if you want, not required, and it must be white and 3/4 length.

    You have to get your own. If your hearing is good you can buy a cheaper one. I bought a Sprague double tube for 14.99 at Lamberts and it works fine for me. If you think you might go into cardiac nursing of any kind, you might want a nicer one from the Littman series. You will also need to buy bandage scissors, Hemostats, and a penlight. Also, I just found out that you do need a labcoat, we don't have to wear it on the floor, but we have to wear it into and out of the hospital. You also have to wear it with nice clothes, no shorts or denim, to get patient assignments the night before clinicals at the hospital. You won't do that until the 4th or 5th clinical day, and 1st semester is only one clinical a week. Hope this helps!
