I'm so glad this thread was created, and I hope lots of people will participate in it. :) I'm excited to meet everyone and to finalllyyyy begin classes.

My suggestion to people is to buy textbooks online, even if you've got financial aid (they'll send you a check with the money you didn't use on books.) It's MUCH cheaper online, especially if you can manage to find an international version. Also, some sites let you rent textbooks for the semester.

thanks for creating this thread. i've been checking this website for months now, but never had the interest to register until now. i'll be glad sharing with everyone this new step in life. congratulations to every one who was accepted.

Anyone know anything about shoes? I want to start looking to find a good deal. I heard they will tell us at orientation but that's the first day of class and will give us no time. Also since orientation is the first day of class do we need to be in uniform? :)

Good questions above!! ^^ I'd love to know the answers to those, too.

Also, and I posted this sort of on the general Jan Nursing forum- what goes on in a physical? Do you have to get undressed to a gown? Do they make you undress to a gown before they weigh you? I'm very skinny, I'm around 5'4 or 5'5 and weigh around 90 lbs-but no, I don't have any eating disorder. I've been very thin my whole life, and recently was prescribed a medication called Topamax for my migraines that has made me lose some weight, so I look even more thin. I'm worried about them weighing me, because of my BMI. Will I ''fail'' my physical- will the dr say I'm not healthy because he thinks I'm too thin? Will Broward see this and revoke my acceptance? I'm thinking the worst here. I've worked so hard to get into the program. Sigh. It just seems discriminatory that something like weight and BMI could even be reported to the college. But I read online that it's included in a physical, and well, it makes sense.

Anyone's ideas? Anyone that's been through the program and knows if weight/BMI could cause one to fail their physical/show up on the results to Broward?

Don't worry about your physical exam. I did mine last week. They weight u with ur clothes on. They only take ur measurements, ur vital signs, and some blood, so they can do the titers. That is all. Depending on your results, you either need or not the immunizations.

I just had my physical and they didn't even weigh me, they just took my word for it ;). Honestly though, they can't revoke your admission because of your weight. You can't fail this physical unless you cant lift anything. If you are naturally thin, the doctor will be able to tell that. Eating disorders are pretty easy for a doctor to diagnose and if you are healthy, that's all that matters. They won't even revoke your admission if you have TB! They just put you on meds. Please don't worry yourself too much over this.

Where did you go for your physical???

Thanks for the input:) So where did you end up going for your physical? (And which location if it's a chain?)

I went to a solantic urgent care clinic. You can fund one close to you on their website.

Hi!

Shoes have to be all white. At the beginning of the program they don't even like it if you have a Nike check with color. They need to have backs to them and need to be nice and clean. It really depends on your instructor. Some care whether they are all white or not.

I was told by someone in the program currently, who has the same teacher for Proc 1 and 2 lecture that we will have, that we need to have all white, leather shoes with no colored markings at all. And, if they have laces, they must be washed and kept immaculately clean, just like the shoes. I was also told that we need to wear our uniforms the first day of class. I bought mine already. The cashier at the bookstore said they sell out VERY QUICKLY. This is just stuff that I've heard. We will also need badge holders for our IDs and CPR cards. Got my textbooks on Amazon for pretty reasonable prices.

On our Broward schedules, it says clinicals are Tuesdays and Wednesdays 6:30-6:30. Are they 2 days a week? Why did I think they were only one day a week?

I've heard around that we're allowed to wear a different brand of pants other than those from Broward, as long as they are in the same color, but I want to confirm this from someone who officially knows- who has done it themselves, or heard officially, or knows someone who currently is doing it.

If anyone is able to answer this question for me, where did you find your scrub pants, and what color turned out to be the matching color in that brand?

Also- I want to make 100% SURE this is a policy accepted in Central campus, obviously; it may be okay at South but not Central, or vice versa, I don't know. :)

Who else is taking prof K. For nursing process 1?
