    I will not be working. Make sure you check on the school's website for other scholarship options also. Another good source for tuition assistance is the Workforce Investment Act. I think they will help with tuition and books, but I am not sure on the specifics.

    I know we have a few weeks before classes begin. Is everyone ready? Has anyone gotten any helpful tips on how to prepare,study,stay motivated,etc? Of course,Ive heard organization & time management is key. I thought about reading ahead,going over some pharmacology tutorials. But was advised to enjoy this break & relax bc once classes begin, it will be nonstop! So im chillaxin...

    Hey guys...I have asked EVERYONE (literally) that I know that has been through the program, about tips before starting the program.... they ALL say "just enjoy this time with your family "!!!!So I have decided to do just that...lol...I have ordered (and received) all of my books and my stethoscope from Amazon, bought my lab coat,scrubs and shoes from Ebay,and now just nervously waiting...lol!!!

    what kind of stethoscope did you get?

    was wondering what happened to you. My CPR expired a year ago. I was surprised that the CPR class is like 6 hours long on two separate days. The last two times I took a CPR class, it was rushed, overcrowded, and compacted into less than half that amount of time.

    reconnmomm, there is an Omron Sprague Stethoscope on Amazon for $13.05. is that about what you paid for yours?

    Hey guys....I logged in from my computer instead of my phone and obviously it saved my old log in info.....lol.....I purchased this stethoscope...Amazon.com: Lumiscope Purple Blood Pressure and Stethoscope Kit: Health & Personal Care sure that you sign up for the Amazon student prime to get FREE 2 day shipping on all of your orders.

    Also,if there is anyone that doesn't have time to take the CPR through the school,I have contact info for the guy that does it for a lot of the nursing students at school for $25...he is actually gonna do mine and a few others this Thursday at 10:30...will take about an hour!!
