    We started today (Thursday).. not sure how I feel about it.. lots of reading already. Everyone is in one class despite different instructor names on SIS. Got our clinical assignment which is only 24 hours toward the end of the course.. all of ours are at hospitals. Mine is from 2pm-8pm and others from 6am-12pm. It really is a lot of reading. Im gonna try to spend all day tomorrow tryna catch up. Its 2:15am right now and i'm only up writing this because my teething baby is up grr.

    Sounds overwhelming! Hope next week goes better. I'm jealous, the sooner I start the sooner I can be done! Is the reading from that big kozier and erb book? I tried ead the first chapter but its sooo dry. The clinicals don't sound too bad though.

    Yes it is.. chapter 1 is on the reading list. I'm finally finished with that one. For the first week, you need to have read chapters 1, 4, 5 and pages 27-30 of chapter 2. I will be honest though, I don't know how often I'm going to be on here because I need to utilize all of my time and with an infant at home, I know it will be difficult to have free time. October will be here before you know it. Enjoy your free time.

    I just applied today. I took my HESI yesterday. Now the wait begins...

    I have a question though...does ANYONE know when the January or March start dates are--or what they were in the past?

    What uniform does TCC use? Sentara has pretty nice ones...I see them at Panera all the time for lunch.

    I think even the fall applicants still have to wait til may to hear the results to see if they made it in the program. the cohorts start class the same day as everyone else start. The uniforms are blue polos and khaki pants. Good luck!

    Jan starts the first day of spring semester. March starts the first day after spring break. Uniforms are a blue polo and white pants. There is also an optional vest or lab jacket. They are really nice for the amount of pockets they have.

    Ivikatasha.. I started the program this semester. a lot of my classmates, including myself, can't figure out how to read all the chapters assigned and study for the tests. We have our first test on Monday and a lot of us have neglected some of our readings to try to study. And now our tests are going to be every Monday. Is there a system you use so you don't fall behind on your reading but still have time to study?

    The reading is a part of the studying, at least it is to me. I will tell you what I did but it may not work for everyone. I read the relevant chapters at least once, but I didn't try to learn or understand while I read, so it made for quick reading. For learning and understanding the material I went to the lecture notes, I really focused on those. If there was something in the notes that I needed more info on I went to the book to clarify. I also paid attention to the boxes of info in the book. I also used mynursinglab to see where I may be weak, it will give you certain sections to read in the book after you take the pre-test.

    The other nursing classes do not have a weekly test, just get through this class!
