    hi guys,
    well the two uniforms were enough for me and most of my classmates. most girls got the unisex scrubs and the zip up scrubs. I will warn you about the scrubs that have the buttons on the back... they look cute at first but most of the girls hated them because they are hard to button up. You do have to wear white shoes so invest in a pair that you can wear for 12 hours. Also veryvery important... buy a stethescope ... please. the ones provided by the school is crap.. and you will need it in the hospital. When you have to listen to breath sounds, you need a stethescope.

    as always, your advice is much appreciated! Do you recommend one of those Littmann Classic scopes? Do they make you wear a nametag on the uniform? Does National give you the name tags?

    thanks again honeybee! i started a CNA certification class back in january that ends March 13th and we had to buy a stethescope. mine is pink... do they have to be a specific color like black or white??? (or is pink ok?)

    Hey Ashely,
    which scope do you have? And how much was it, if you don't mind?

    My steth is called a "Sprague Stethescope" made by Prestige Medical (model no. 122). I got it at one stop uniform shop. i hope i'll be able to use it even though it's pink! lol:uhoh21:

    Hahaha!!! LOL! danni314, you are too funny! I actually do have a big white purse, like Ashley, so what do you say if you go and buy one too, so we can all match, huh? Hahaha! just kidding No, but if you email me, I can give you my cell number and we can get a hold of each other once we're there. Here's my email: How does that sound?

    Hahaha..well now I feel left out, I am bringing my big white purse too possibly, with a ribbon or flower pinned too it! Haha, personally I liked the holding a sign idea! Sorry I haven't been writing, I thought no one was posting b/c my email was sending new posts to the junk for some reason? Anywhoo, I am relieved to read that you girls seema as nervous and overwhelmed as I am, means I am normal...those scrub tops are stupid expensive! Hey any idea what food will be provided, in the email it said "meal will be provided"? Just curious, hope you guys get this in time! TOMORROW!!!! Ahhhh!
    Bye...Samantha (

    Hi Samantha,
    good to have you back...I just emailed you with my info. Hey, it says the orientation will include "preliminary testing". What is that? Does anyone know?

    No idea, maybe it is info about the teas test? Many programs are requiring that, I took it for the SWC program. Speaking of which, I just got my acceptance letter in the mail from much for that. First I couldn't get into any schools and now i have a choice!?

    hey girls! It's funny cause I e-mailed them about a month ago asking what the preliminary testing is and this is what she said:

    "As far as the testing that occurs, it is nothing you can study for and nothing to stress about. It is only to see your learning ability and styles going in to the program, and then you take a similar exam when you graduate to show progression."

    ps - we are gonna look awesome with all the big white purses, HAHA!!!

    Wow... I have a feeling that I will fail this test miserably tomorrow...
