    Does any one know where the interviews will be held. I'm assuming windy will but was wondering if anyone knew for sure? 40 people is a lot. I think we all have a good chance.

    i just found this on the highlands nursing website

    announcement: july 1, 2009 - we are increasing the size of the class in marietta and students interested in attending that campus and applying for a wellstar scholarship should contact barbara cozby for the application. we will have 40 in nurs 2204 and 40 in nurs 1101.

    i guess thats what they mean by different sections. when you search for classes for fall it shows 28 spots for the marietta campus taking 2204.

    Hey guys! Could someone tell me exactly where to go to register? I go tomorrow morning. Also, I hand delivered my application today to Carol Westbrooks and she said they are looking to do the interviews the last week of July. The 27th, 28th and 29th.
    That's neat that 3 of you all live in the same vicinity. I'm over near Town Center right by 75 if anyone is interested in carpooling. Boy, I sure hope we all get in. If not, those of us that don't can carpool to Rome!
    Good luck everyone!!!

    FSU...registration is at the Heritage Hall campus in Rome. When you get to the building, you will see where all the cars park. When you walk up the breezeway, go all the way to the end of the breezeway and at the end on the left there is a door. There should be a sign there that says "Nursing Dept". Go through that door and up the little ramp. There will be a set of double doors that you will have to go through. Once you are through the double doors, go left. You will see a little wooden bench outside of one of those doors. That is the door that you will need to go in to register.

    Don't forget about me.....that would be 4 of us I live in Rockmart but if I could I would take turns carpooling. I would just need to park my car at one of your houses on the days I am not driving.
    lol, stardan....Like tns said, the more the merrier. If I happen to get in, I would love to be part of the carpooling crew! The funny thing is that my car is kinda of compact(Jeep Liberty) any more than 4 and ya'll might start fighting in the back seat like my kids.:lol_hitti

    I talked with the recent GHC nursing graduate and she just passed the boards. I am so excited for her!!! I can't wait until it's us!

    I, also, asked her about the stethoscope. She said to just start with the 12 dollar one from HANS. But, to invest in a good stethoscope for 2nd year......you will need a good one for cardio.

    Hey - I just wanted to let you know that I stopped by Savvy Scrubs in Rome after I registered, and Christy Smith (owner) was unbelievably helpful. She gives 20% off uniforms AND shoes for GHC students and does alterations and sews patches for free. She was just so nice and helpful, and I would HIGHLY recommend that you buy your uniforms from her. I got 2 scrub sets, jacket, lab coat, patches, and danskins shoes for $160. : )

    Hi, I have been following your blogs. I am in the middle of my pre-req's at GPC. I read that GHC has a campus in Marietta and that only a certain number are selected. How are they selelcted? What is it based on??? Location, financial need?? Is this the campus that has the Well Star scholarships? How does that work? Can you go to the campus without getting a scholarship? I am making my list of where to apply. I live in East Cobb. That would be a perfect location, but wanted more information about it. I thought maybe you'd be able to help me!! Thanks in advance!!

    If you send me your email address, I'll email you the WellStar info. And yes, you have to have the scholarship to go to Kennestone. Classes are at the WellStar Development Center.

    For those of ya'll trying for the Marietta campus, what are ya'll doing about the books and uniforms you've bought? Are you holding onto the receipts so you can be reimbursed?
