    I like to make calendars in Microsoft Word and schedule my to do list throughout the time allowed. I used this for all the orientation nonsense and for each course. I scheduled everything (reading with page numbers and time allowed, care plans, journals, group work time, and relaxation)

    Consider using the calendar. It works well for me and it keeps me from becoming anxious b/c i know when I'm on schedule for finishing tasks. Also, I don't feel guilty when I'm not studying b/c it's all scheduled.

    Just a heads up, when you reach Ortho, you have to do everything you're doing for orientation over again. They usually don't tell students that. Some of my classmates had a hard time finding the money to pay for everything a second time (finger prints $60; online background check $29 min., but it goes up if you have changed your name, lived outside the state, etc; drug screen $30, plus the physical and and CEU courses needed) So, if you're on a budget, put a little aside for this b/c if you don't update it all, you can't attend clinicals.

    Talking about expenses, I don't have insurance and at my doctor's office all the immunizations would total just over 400. Does anybody know of a clinic or something where I could get the shots cheaper? Also, I remember reading about books for the first semester but couldn't find it again, can you guys tell me which should we buy or not? And somebody told me not to get an used perry potter because you want to do your own highlighting? Thanks for the help...

    Wow so orientation was soooo long yesterday and with all the questions that were asked I am still wondering...do we need to have our uniform, stethoscope, books etc on the first day of class?? Nothing was mentioned and now I dont know if we find out on the first day or what...can someone help?

    Also I keep hearing the bundle is not worth it...could someone please list the books that are critical for the first semester...im going to south but I think all campuses use the same books right?

    Anyone needing immnizations and titers on the cheap should look in to Broward County Health Department Attached is a link with there hours locations. I got my shots there and cost me no more than $80. Here is the link. Only downside is that wait times are long as it caters to mostly lower income uninsured but if $$ is tight, this is definitely way to go. Here is the link

    you can always use a different color highlighter or a colored pen to underline. my process book was new when i bought it, but since then 3 others have used it. i shared the books for the specialties with 2 other students. so, we each only bought one book. we each used a different color pen and it worked out great.

    i also debined my med-surg book and 3 students were able to use the same book at one time.

    For shots, also.....FAU has a medical clinic that offers shots and titers. However, there are only certain ones you can get if you are NOT an FAU student. I was going to get my varicella titer there because I think it was like $30 something, which is REALLY cheap (like almost $100 cheaper than other places) and they said for that I had to be a student. I think Hep B was one you get if you weren't a student yet.

    They changed their website, so I'm not sure what the correct number is, but you can try:

    Student Health Services: 561-297-0049
    Immunization Office: 561-297-0048

    How do we know what shots to get??? Also, do we have to do exactly all ceu certifications ???? Because we only require a certain amount of hours.
