Questions about JJC nursing program

  1. Anyone know what color scrubs the JJC nursing students wear? Also, when in the program were you allowed to use a ipod touch or tablet in classroom or at clinical? Are there any real differences between the day program and evening program (besides the schedule)?

    Enquiring minds want to know! hehe

    The students wear wine (maroon) colored scrubs. You also have the option to wear white.

    Many students use their phone to record lectures. Some people use laptops during theory to type notes. I haven't really seen much of that at clinical though. You can have a clipboard, but often times you don't have a place to leave your belongings. And if you have a patient on isolation, I wouldn't bring anything like that into the patient's room.

    I think the content is slightly different for nights as far as what is covered in each lecture. But overall, I believe the day and evening programs take the same final.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks so much Megc629, that helps a bunch. I think I will get an ipod touch then as I would definitely like to record the lectures. I heard that the day class has 60+ people in it. How do they fit all those people in one class? Is everyone in a big lecture room/hall or do they spit those people up into smaller classes?

    Thanks for the info

    For 1st semester students, they separate you into 3 lecture groups. The lecture times are 8-10, 10-12 and 1-3. You have lecture twice per week (Mon and Fri) and clinical topics with just your clinical group (approx 8 people) once per week.
