    my class only does clinicals once a week, either tuesday or wednesday. our first day of class fell on a tuesday, and only about 5 people came in uniform. our professor was very annoyed by this. she said that we were expected to be in uniform on every clinical day, and we should have "known better". we didn't get in trouble, but we were supposed to wear them.
    just curious to know, was this your first class? at north, you get a week to get your uniforms. on the second tuesday, you're expected to be in uniform. then, it is understood that if you are on campus for class on tues, wed, thurs, you need to be in uniform. the exception is during cardio and trends. you don't wear uniforms during campus labs b/c you are a senior.

    what does north do on the first day?

    the first few days are orientation. you will read every darn bc policy and nursing department policy word for word. you will sign all the policies. you'll get lectures about how hard the program is and about 20 lectures about cheating, integrity, and dishonesty.

    if is so boring that you'll actually look forward to starting lecture on friday. the good thing is, it gives you a few more days to catch up on your reading before lecture starts.

    most students bring their books and study materials on mondays b/c there is a 4 hour gap between process and pharm. if you can, stay on campus. don't go home b/c this is a good time to study, read, review lecture notes, etc.

    i started the lpn to rn transition in may. i’m about to start my second semester. and yes, our very first day of the program fell on a tuesday (a scheduled clinical day for half the class). and our professor said we should have come in uniform that day, even though we were sitting in a briefing room. the second day of class, we met in modules near the lab, as well as the actual lab later in the day. we were all in uniform.

    so according to that professor, on south campus, who also teaches the generic class, she said we were expected to be in uniform both days, the first week of class, because they were clinical days. (we didn’t go to the hospital until the second week.)

    the new class starting at south, might very well not need their uniforms until week two either. i’m just telling my experience, in case monday happens to be a clinical day for them. and if it is and they show up in uniform, it won't be held against them. we were told to wear uniforms for all hospital and lab time, and regular clothes for lecture classes. and of course many people often wore uniforms to lecture, because they would go practice in the lab afterward.

    For North campus??

    I think that is the wrong book title on the professor's site. It has the correct author. On the bookstore's booklist it says it the ISBN # is 9780323044899, and its called Study Guide for Pharmacology and the Nursing Process.

    I found a book with that title, but the authors are Reiss, Evans and Broyles, not Lilley and the Lilley book is what they are selling in the bookstore (I saw it on the shelf).

    The book they told me to get in the bookstore was Pharmacology and the Nursing Process 5th edition by Lilley, Harrington, and Snyder. The guy who helped me in the bookstore said that was what they were using. It came with the book and study guide.

    you only need the study guide for pharm on north and central campus. no one who has dr. k opens the textbook. what a waste of money!
