    hey everyone!

    i don't mean to be annoying but i wanted to let everyone know that ordering your name tags would be wise to do right now. i just ordered mine and they said it would take 3-4 weeks to get here and then sometimes they come back misspelled and then you have to re-order them. i know it says in the packet to do it early but i just wanted to reiterate that. they are $11 a piece and they recommend to order 2 (one for your scrubs and one for your lab coat) and that's what i did.

    if you already ordered it or think i am completely annoying, please feel free to ignore this post :crash_com

    I ordered my name badges today. I can pick them up in a week.

    I asked my psychology and A&P2 classmates about the nursing program. Nobody got accepted! I talked to a guy who had 4.0 and only one support class and a girl who also had 4.0 GPA, but no support classes. They were so close to get in.

    That is so sad! I wondered how many 4.0's didn't get accepted because of the amount of support courses completed. I know I would be more disappointed having a 4.0 and not get in than I am with my 3.77. OUCH! (Thank goodness I have all of mine complete...now just to work on that 3.77....)

    Did you order your badge at El Centro? That girl told me it would take 3-4 weeks. You'll have to let me know when you get yours so I can see if mine are ready!!!! Crazy misinformed bookstore people! hahaha

    That really sucks about those people I was in their shoes last year with only one B on my whole transcript and it was what held me back for a year. It really stinks when you're that close but no cigar.

    funny t-shirts http://www.cafepress.com/studybreak/235474

    I saw a girl the other day walking into El Centro with a t-shirt that said "RN 2B" on a license plate on the back of the shirt. It was really cute and I was wondering where she got it. She was walking really fast so I couldn't stop her :roll

    I saw those t-shirts, too. I think you can make those at home.

    I ordered my name badges at North Lake. I hope I get them next week.

    I ordered my name tag this morning and inquired about how long it would take. The lady flipped through the book and said, "She hasn't ordered any of these yet. It looks like she's waiting until she has a bunch". According to the lady I spoke with, once our name tags are ordered it should take 3 or 4 weeks. Hopefully she's confused, but I'd be prepared to wait.

    I thought ya'll might like to know. I hate waiting for anything!
