    Hey @ivikatasha what are the clinical schedules like? Are they always on tues and thurs? And do you have a say on it? I'm trying to give my boss a hheads up on when ill need off

    Yes, but it is possible to have saturday clinical but it seems to be super rare. Just keep your tues & thurs free. Most of the time they are 12 hours, so you would just go either tues or thurs. Some are 6 hours though, tues and thurs. The instructors will let you switch clinical groups between classmates if a certain day or time doesn't work out for you.

    Thank you! Cohort 2.
    Completed the BLS for healthcare workers last night. If any of you are taking the class on Diamond Springs Road, the instructor Chris is awesome. The 3 1/2 hour class went by fast. I paid for the book but we didn't use it once.

    I wonder if anyone will be in the first cohort with me.. guess my cohort doesn't use allnurses lol. But the place on diamond springs is the only cpr class I could findwhich sucks because I live in Yorktown. I didn't see any 3 and a half hour classes though. I need to go look again. I thought it said every Saturday.

    Hey guys. I am currently in the nursing program, in nursing 170, so I can answer the question about the pants and stuff. You should really buy the school's pants from the bookstore. If you try to by them elsewhere and they look different, they may not let you into clinical, and you cannot miss any clinical.

    If you have any other questions I will try to answer them.

    Congrats on getting in! Enjoy your free time while you can
    Hey mama, you think nursing fundamentals edition 8, instead of edition 9, will work for first class?

    Has anyone found the same uniforms and shoes anywhere else cheaper??

    A few things, haha:


    1. You can get your CPR training through TCC, the class is HLT 105. They normally meet twice and then you get certified for 2 years. It is the BLS for the healthcare provider. They seem to have a few classes each month. It is a 1 credit course.

    2. The titers are to check your blood for immunity for whatever they are testing for. Even if you have had your shots you need to get the titer because you may not be immune. I was up to date on my MMR shots, yet it said I was not immune, so I had to go get that shot again.

    3. I have been to multiple stores in the area trying to find the uniform for cheaper, no one seems to sell it. Maybe you guys will be more lucky.

    4. What I did for the fundamentals book was buy the ninth edition online from amazon, and buy the mynursinglab access code from amazon too. They were significantly cheaper. I can't really answer if the 8th edition would work. Normally there has to be a lot updated to go to a new edition, so you risk missing things.

    Definitely don't want to get poked too many times aha. Oh well. It's gotta be done. I'm not sure where exactly the CPR place is on diamond springs, i was just going to mapquest the address. I think it still comes out cheaper taking the class at the place. One credit at TCC is over $100 I believe.
