Ok, I am getting so excited for orientation!

I was wondering if any past students had any suggestions about what to bring to orientation? Also, does anyone know which hospitals are on the list of clinical sites? Thanks:)

How are we supposed to dress for orientation. Business casual? Casual?

You can wear whatever. I know people in the past have worn the same color so that they know they are from allnurses.com. Target has name tags for a $1 if you guys wanna do that lol.

I know I brought a pen and a bag/purse because they gave out info at orientation. Bring money for your polos and food. There is a burger king, starbucks, publix, hardees, mcdonalds, taco bell, krystal's, and a few other restaurants off of Dunn Ave. not to mention the cafeteria.

Hospitals I know you can go to are:

Baptist DT, Orange Park, Baptist South, Baptist Beaches, St. Vincent's, Memorial, Shands, and Mayo. Pretty much any hospital in Jacksonville besides Kindrid and Specialty.

Hello ladies I was just checking to see if anyone has spoken to the nurse to find out if it is going to be a problem if you do not have your titers results back by monday. I have left a message and e-mailed. Mine will not be in until Wednesday.

Also, do you all plan on meeting at orientation.

Can I remind members not to post contact names from school, institution etc as per terms of service

No potentially libelous information about specific schools, instructors, or health care facilities/entities should be posted in these forums. While it is important to be able to network, everyone should be mindful of the following:

1. It is a small world - when we narrow it down to a state and throw in some personal info, there is actually a pretty good chance someone may recognize you if you are not careful. Your privacy is paramount to us.

2. While allnurses.com is a wonderful place to vent (without excess personally identifiable details) it is not the place to express why ("x" specific person, place or program) is terrible. Gripe away, but since we cannot permit allegations to be made about named entities, your care in not naming them is very much appreciated.

3. Please do not give out personal information about others. Do not name names where anyone could identify the person in any facility including your nursing programs.

We will register for classes and get our schedules at orientation. I went ahead and bought my books through the north campus bookstore. They sell the entire set of first term books packaged together in a box brand new and there are a lot of them (plus some interactive DVDs). Once I bought them I priced them new on amazon.com and there was no major difference in price. You could probably buy them all used off the internet there are just so many books and I'm the kind of person who would rather buy them from the school being safe in knowing that I have the right editions of everything we need. FYI, the box is very heavy so park as close to the building as possible if you do decide to buy them from the bookstore.

Do you mind me asking how much the set of books are? I am just trying to prepare accordingly. I thought each term was different with books and that we don't know which term or classes we have until orientation.

The packaged box of brand new books for first term cost $700 at the bookstore. It includes a lot of books such as pharmacology, medical terminology, nursing diagnosis handbook, fundamentals of nursing, nursing intervention & clinical skills, physical examination & health assesment plus some interactive DVDs and an NCLEX examination review book. The lady at the bookstore said that they were all the books we needed for first term and they make it easier by selling them together.
