Hi, Are there any nursing students from Truman on here? Past or present. I have some questions that I can't seem to find the answer to on their website. 1. Is the admission still "lottery... Read More

    I will be starting nursing at Truman this coming fall and have a few questions... I work, so I don't really have much of a choice as to which class I pick (will make sure to get there early so I can get it!) and Prof. Harmon teaches it. Anything you can tell me about this professor? Also, I read that you have to pay the same day? I always put it on a payment plan for my other classes (down payment right away then monthly payments)... do they allow you to do this for the nursing program too, or do you have to pay it all right away? Thanks!

    I'm a first year student. I really like the Truman Nursing Program! It has its ups and downs, but I would definitely recommend it. The cost for 1st and 2nd semester is about $3,000 total plus $1,000 for books.
    do we need to buy Health insurance from school? if so how much is it? thanks

    Chucha1981... I tried rate my professor and was unable to find Prof. Harmon. Am I doing something wrong? I typed "harmon," in and there was none listed for Truman College.

    Truman has a prof. HUDA, I dont think it has a "Harmon"

    Relax Everyone! I do not think you all need to get a CBC, why in the world woud you need that? Why would they need to know how many Bands you have and your RBC count? I did not need one of those when i started last year. I needed to get a titer done which I had done at a clinic on Fullerton and Californiaish, I just called around random clinics until I found one that would do it. The cheapest place to get the drug screen is this place downtown on Michigan Ave that Truman gave me the info about, it was on $35. The problem is you need a 10 panel drug screen, most places like clinics only do a 7. When I went to the clinic I told them I needed a 10 panel and they did a 7 anyway, when I took my results to Truman they told me it was no good and that I needed to take another drug test and gave me the info for the one downtown so I went straight there and they gave me the results immediately. You will also need the background check which was like 30 bucks and you do it online. CPR can be taken at the city colleges you just sign up like you would a summer class, I took it at Truman and it was about 6 hours long I think. I also needed to get a Tetanus shot as well as the Hep B series, they only want to know that you have started the series when you start school(it takes 5 months to complete). You dont need insurance. Relax about the books, you need all the books, yes you do, you will use them all but do not panic. The most important ones for 101 are the Fundamentals boook and the Hesi book as well as the Reviews and rationals Fundamentals book. Those were the main books we used all semester, oh and the Lilley pharm text.
    In regards to the person that had the question about working, I work full time at a very stressful job as a manager of a huge store in the city full time, I got an A in 101 and 102. You can work and succeed. Let me know if you all have any questions I can answer for you!
    Handwinting, on this thread there is a lot of good information from "gonnabenurse11" a Truman student that was very helpful to all of us last year, you can find more information starting with post #93, but this one in particular tell you about your question on insurance.

    Professor Huda is teaching the one that starts at 5. L. Harmon is teaching the one starting at 6. The professor was mentioned as one of the night instructors in an earlier post, but no one went into detail.

    Will be starting program in the fall. I will be attending during the evening. There appears to be (3) three classes to pick from. 5:00 - 6: 50 pm S. Huda / 6:00 - 7:45 pm L. Harmon and 4:00 - 5:50 pm (staff) Does anyone have advice, opinion(s), comment(s), or just general information on these instructors? pros /cons? Any information will be helpful. Thanks.
