    Thanks for the info!!! So, do we have a standard schedule for nursing? We can pick and choose what classes we want?

    FYI....I just found out that a new graduate from GHC nursing is now working on the acute floor. I went up there to see if I could find out who she was and possibly get some advice from her. I will try again tomorrow.

    Dallas....I thought about you yesterday.

    You posted something earlier in this thread about gaining 6 pounds. So, yesterday when I went to purchase the uniforms, I tried to bottoms on. I looked in the mirror and thought, "Self!!!!! You have got to do something about that butt!"

    Trying on those uniform bottoms is a great motivation for losing weight ya'll. :chuckle
    Toooooooooo funny. I go back to the dr tomm(a specialist, not primary care) and I'm hoping I lost a few lbs. We have an electronic scale at home that is apparently broke. It's eight pounds off.... I knew my clothes were getting tighter. I've been cutting back here lately so we will see if its working. Did you buy your uniform yet? Do we just need one scrub top, pants, and lab coat or two sets?

    I bought two tops, two bottoms, the lab coat, and three patches. I decided that I would wait until we start clinicals to see if I needed another top and bottom.


    Let's exchange ideas....what are you guys going to do for organization in the program? There are some other threads on this website that talk about different ideas to keep organized. I like to hear about the way other people keep organized.

    I haven't really done anything so far except buy a spiral notebook type calendar/planner. I have written down a bunch in it already. (appointments, orientation, registration, etc)

    Hopeformelissa, I am like you always looking for tips about studying and organizing. That being said, you don't need tips, you make all A's anyways! J.k. I bought an agenda for dates and deadlines and I always have spiral binders for each class. Other than that, I'm giving consideration to upgrading to a better phone. I am thinking a blackberry so that I can still stay somewhat connected even though I be in class all the time.

    Do any of you guys know any other threads where we can get insight into the program from present students? I am sure there is some good information out there as to what we should or shouldn't do, or what to look for, or which clinical sites/instructors are the best, etc. We just need to find those students with time on their hands to advise us

    That would be priceless.

    Dr Slaven has still not opened my email. Has anyone called or anything? I am wondering if I should call too.

    hey guys,
    Book info: if you have money to spare BUY THEM FROM AMAZON....if you have financial aid i totally get it.
    Uniforms: if you have money now, then buy them, if not you dont need them until clinicals start.
    If you are buying a spiral notebook(lol) good luck, your going to have ten.
    Materials: buy a HUGE 3 ring heavy duty binder. separate your notebook into test tabs(like test one material, and etc)
    The course packet you have to print off is about 200 pages and has what outlines youll be using for each test/lecture, your skills check-off sheet, your notecard examples for clinicals and a bunch of forms you will sign the first class. PUT ALL OF THIS into your notebook.
    my advice is ALWAYS print off the outlines/powerpoints for each class and take notes off those, do NOT handwrite in class...easiest way to fail. thats how my first test grade was 58 and second 84

    Ashley, thanks for the info. Every bit helps...especially the part about taking notes on an extra copy of the powerpoint!! Can we get the course packet at the bookstore ahead of time? Or is it given to us by the instructors?

    Had a voicemail on my phone from earlier, the scholarship apps will be emailed out on Monday.
