    Neat! Have you already been there?
    I've been there for orientation, but not to the simulation lab. The ride there wasn't too awful, but I didnt take 75.

    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?
    I am also trying for the Marietta campus, fsu93. I already went to Lynn's scrub shop in Rome the day I registered. I tried them on and ordered 2 tops, 2 bottoms, and one lab jacket. All under a $100 and they have to sew the GHC patches on the jacket and top. I will pay when I go to pick them up. Since I don't need them, I'm in no hurry. She said said to give her a couple of weeks......I don't think our uniforms will change depending on our campus b/c we are still GHC students. We are just receiving a scholarship opportunity and committing to work for Wellstar after graduation. Our books will be the same too. The three differences will be 1. location of classes taught, Marietta opposed to heritage hall in Rome 2. An employment contract w/ Wellstar after graduation, if broken you are liable for repayment of funds. 3. You receive money each quarter from them for education to spend as you choose.

    That is funny that you asked that. I had a Clinical Calculations assignment due to Dr. Rees today, so I stopped by the nursing dept to give it to her. Dr. Rees wasn't in, but the secretary was.

    I asked her if our schedules were still set to be input today, and she said "Well, actually now they are saying that it COULD be the week of orientation or the week after." I cannot believe that we will not know exactly what our days/hours will be until then!!!! Geez.....

    I also asked her if she knew what we would be doing those two days at orientation. She said the basic things like meeting the teachers and hearing what to expect out of the program, etc. Then she said that we would also be testing one of those days! After I freaked out on her, she told me that it was "more of an assessment test to see where we are" than anything. She said that it would have no impact on us staying in the program.

    Wheeeeeew, I am glad that my assessment will not impact my slot b/c I prob wouldn't do that well considering that I have no way to prepare....I'm still pumped and ready to roll up my sleeves and get started! How about you guys? Are you more excited than anxious or vise versa???

    I'm more anxious for the wellstar interview. I wonder when they will be calling to set up interviews.

    lol hobo, I am w/you on being nervous about the wellstar interview! I don't interview well. My mind starts racing and I have a hard time concentrating on the questions being asked.:msk: Despite my nervousness, I will try to put on a mask and pretend that I'm o.k.
