    Thanks! My family is trying to plan a family trip during the 3rd week of school, and I wasn't sure if I would be able to go (granted I get in, of course). I'm still not sure if I will, but it is nice to know I won't miss the start of clinicals if I do go. Thanks again for the info

    Missing a week of school will mean missing about a 5 hour lecture & 3-4 skills labs.

    Week 3 was our Vital Sign check-off. I wouldn't miss that week at all. It seemed like there were check-offs left and right. Oh and also they deduct points if you are absent. I think it was 2 pts. They check roll each day and everything because they want you there.

    I know there's a certain amount of days that you have to be in regular class, I'm sure in nursing school it's even more strict.

    I know that the amount of clinical hours needed is very strict.

    We could only miss 3 days of lecture or 12 hrs of clinical.

    So what is so special about the syllabus that you have to BUY it? Every college class I have ever had they just gave you a syllabus. ???

    Agreed. The syllabus was/is a waste of money. It's not anything special. The binding barely even stays together haha.


    I start at Parkland 0630 tomorrow! AAAAHHHH!!!! I hope I haven't forgotten everything. I am so afraid of that. I will be there for 6 days 0630-1530 M-S. I am very excited but at the same time I am very nervous. I am the only one coming from 1st semester in the group. Everyone else is 3rd or 4th!! AAAAAHHHH!!!! Hopefully they will still be willing to teach me stuff.

    I hope everyone is having a great summer!!! I can't believe it's almost over....
