    Brie, do you have to work for them in order to apply?

    Are they still accepting applications? If not, when is the next deadline? How many people do they accept each semester?

    What is the criteria? (I have completed all of my pre-reqs (3.77) and support classes (4.0) required by El Centro.)

    Thanks.
    Fun2Care,I do know that they take THR employees first, but so far I am told they only have 10 out of 40 qualified applicants for Spring 06. Keep in mind that the deadline for employees isn't until Dec 20th though. I am going to the info session on Monday, and I will let you know approx how many people are there b/c they told us that if you were going to apply by the Dec 20th deadline you should attend the Dec 5th info session. I asked how many people they thought were going to apply, and they have no idea. They told me that last semester they had 60 applicants, and of course they only took 40. Good Luck to you... Brianna

    Hey you guys, I called about our scrubs and they said they should be here within 10-15 days. I saw that they charged my bank acct. so I called them to get a ETA. I just wanted to let y'all know in case you didn't already

    I am excited to see them! I hope they spell everything correctly :uhoh21:

    Thanks, Brianna & Heath.


    I'm registered to take my Algebra over again during winter-mester. So, hopefully, I'll apply for Fall '06 with a 4.0/4.0. (I accept all prayers!)

    faceinbooks82, I'm excited for you! I know what you mean about spelling names right.

    Thanks funnie! I am excited too!

    I just got back from the school and they wouldn't take payments for the spring semester yet on that $86 charge thing we need to pay for. They let me pay for classes but not for that $86 insurance thing. They said to come back about a week before school starts to pay for that....WEIRD...oh well.

    I bought my "textbook pack" also and the total was $551.80. They didn't actually have them in stock but I paid for them and they'll call me when they're ready. Yes, I got my loan check in the mail so I was able to finally take care of this stuff.

    How is everyone?

    Good luck to everyone on their finals! :roll

    Oh that is weird that they won't take payments for that insurance thing. I was going to go up this week and pay for it. My name badges are still not in. Hopefully it will come in soon.

    NLC bookstore doesn't have the book pac, either. The only book that I have is the drug dosage calculation, because that is not in the package.

    Have you noticed that we have to buy a "skills pac" from the bookstore, too? It is mentioned on my registration paper under the skills lab course.

    Katie,

    I didn't look to see if they had the Skills Packs in stock. I know they are the things with all of our supplies we will be using but I don't know exactly what's in them. Someone told me they cost about $100. I also don't know if they knew what I was asking about

    I am getting excited for school and work closings right now I am hoping they will let us go home from work soon! Some people have already left this morning!!!!

    I hope everyone stays SAFE AND WARM

    The lab supply pack was $49.80. It has a urethral catheter, gauze sponges, surgical gloves, abdominal pads, alcohol prep pads, cotton tipped applications, foley catheter supplies, and various other things. I got so excited when I got it.

    I realize I am not at El Centro but keep up with the thread. I too payed for my books and not in stock. The best part is that I have finals, plus an assignment (research paper) due the first week of clinicals. Weird

    Have a good day and stay warm.

    I think all nursing students are all for one and one for all. I'm glad you post here! Just observing your post count alone, I can tell you are a friendly person

    Have you been in nursing school for a while or are you starting like we are?

    I've just realized that this time next week I will be eating my Mom's cookies and meals and I will start gaining weight, too. What if I won't fit into my uniform? Can you loose weight during the holidays?

    By the way, I haven't received my uniform, yet.

    Hi guys,

    Wow, I go away for awhile and this thread just blows up!!!

    How is everyone? Funnie, Faceinbooks, LKG, LalaJenn? Have you all gotten your books and uniforms? They haven't released the lsit of books for me in my rpogram up here. I still haven't worked out all my funding, but I am hopeful. God will open a door or a window somewhere!

    Keep me up to date
