    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

    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.
