    Thanks All,
    I have been in contact with the college and they are going to have a meeting with all of the people who couldn't be there last night. I did manage to register from home, but I didn't know if there was a certain section I had to pick. I just picked one and I hope I got the right one.

    We did blood testing and had a packet that we have to fill out. We also got Financial aid forms and information.
    eeek! Blood testing? I hate getting my blood taken, but I guess I'll need to get over that sometime!

    I guess for drug test, right?

    Trying to find Megan, she was at orientation about to move to uptown!
    Didn't get her info, but she has mine. Drop me an email if you get this.
    I got turned around and then couldn't find you.
    Hope to hear from you.

    Hi Saralou,
    I met with Dr. Sherif and she explained the program to me. I missed the orientation as well. We need to be CPR certified as a healthcare provider. The student nursing association is having a training the week before class. It is $40 and covers everything we need.

    I'm pretty sure the weekend program is the same as ours,the regular program,but your going to need CPR that's by a healthcare provider and is American Heart Association approved.

    Yes. I will post books later. Stethescope is the best you can afford. You should spend about $100. The uniforms are the white top and burgandy/maroon pants. No lab coat. We can wear a long sleeve white shirt under the scrub top. All white shoes, white socks. We can wear street clothes the first day of class (Jan 23rd). She will email us what time our class is. She said it will be 8-noon or 1-5 on saturdays only. The pharm and patho classes are online-but we can attend the one with Dr. macarthy (the class from the bio dept) if we want to, anytime. It is the one that is Monday mornings. I sat through the traditional orientation and Dr. Macarthy spoke. She mentioned that being late is unacceptable. So, if you decide to sit in on her lecture, be on time.
