    Carlos, the two people I thought might be able to switch with me, won't work out. One turned out to not have the schedule I was looking for anyway; the other is the lady I previously mentioned that has our same schedule/clinical so obviously I can't switch with her!

    I just went to my neighbor's house who graduated a year ago from Ivy Tech RN program. She gave me the Fundamentals textbook off the list (albeit one edition older), the set of CDs to go with it, and a dosage calc book for free! I offerred to pay her and she refused saying she was so happy to do it and that she is so excited for me to be starting the program. Wasn't that so nice of her? I will have to get her a gift card or something to say thank you. I think I'll try this Fundamentals book and see how it goes before buying the newest edition. It seems that so often people say that newer editions are not that much different than the older one. The dosage calc book is not the same one that is on the list, but dosage calc is dosage calc, it's all just math. . . she said that it's possible though that they will want us to rip out and turn in pages from the one on the list, but to wait and see about that before buying the one from the list.

    Oh and she also had clinicals at Hancock and said she liked it there, since it is a smaller hospital and the nurses all seemed friendly and willing to help students.

    Here are the shoes I ordered. I liked the large number of reviews they had gotten that were very very positive.

    I dont know, but the reviews all talk about how comfortable they are and how well they work for you if you are on your feet all day.

    I had my orientation yesterday. I checked campus connect today and I am already registered for all of my classes. I'm so excited, it almost official now! My major is still undeclared so I'm waiting for them to switch it over. Plus, I'm attending a different campus for the program, so I also have to have my campus changed over. I had no idea that my financial aid would be affected by everything, so now I have to cancel the second half of my loan at my current campus and reapply at my new campus for the spring semester. I really hope it works out and I get it in time. They assured me that I would, so I hope they are right.

    I will be shopping for my supplies soon. I can't wait until January!
