i'm so glad you got into the lpn program, gatlinburg! :) that's so exciting!

well, i had my orientation on monday... it took about two hours. we got all the information about books and uniforms, and we have to get our drug screen and background test done by august 6th. i believe all the other stuff (except books, of course) can wait until we actually start clinicals. i hope i don't have any problems with my financial aid this fall because i saw our book list and it looks expensive. plus i'll have to pay for the uniforms, drug test, physical, etc... all in all i'm still excited but honestly a little stressed out! :uhoh3:

getting my schedule was the coolest part of orientation. the program chair said that pharm is usually the hardest for new rn students, but i'm excited about it. i'm usually pretty good at science classes and i love them - even though chem is kinda kicking my butt this summer. luckily the rest of my classes haven't been too bad.

also, the program chair said that starting this fall, ivy tech's nursing program will no longer be through the itcc school of health sciences - it now has its own school of nursing. i thought that was pretty cool! i'm up way too late and putting off studying for my public speaking midterm tomorrow - so i guess i'd better get back to

that!

thanks erin. orientation was full of information and i've made a check list and will cross off things as i get them completed. i would find out about the uniform and things that go with it because you will probably learn how to use the stethoscope and b/p cuff prior to clinical's.

anyone still waiting to hear from south bend for lpn program? have they mailed out letters yet? last i heard they were mailing them out last week but no one i know has received them. hmmmmmmmmmmm.....

At the ASN information session, it sounded like letters were out and their orientation was next week. I believe the cutoff was 188.

Hmmm... I had 189 and did not get a letter. Well, I guess it is time to make another call to the friendly ladies there. Thank you for the information!

i was really surprised to see that the anderson orientation is going to last from 9am-2pm when the lafayette one was just 2 hours...maybe they'll be serving us a super nice lunch...lol...but i'm not holding my breath.

DLC2008 specializes in ER.

Does anyone know when the orientation for Columbus is??

hey i have a couple of questions for Lafayette ppl...

are the lab fees ($75-115) out of pocket or do they come from financial aid?

we are required to get the varicella titer correct? has anybody found a cheap place to get this?...(i don't have insurance)

and does anyone know if they sell good stethoscopes (like littmann) at the bookstore? I really don't want a cheap one and it would be great if i could use financial aid money for that! (if we can even use it on that)

thanks

Congrats to everyone who made it in. I haven't been on here much. This summer session is kicking my butt! I've also been getting all my nursing paperwork and I have an appointment with my advisor to set up my schedule and stuff. That's on Wednesday and I'm soooo excited!!!!!

How's everyone else doing?

For the titers and any immunizations you might need, check with your local health dept. You can generally get some of that cheaper there than anywhere else. Some stuff you may just have to pay out of pocket for at a regular doctor's office though. :(

I got into the LPN program at Logansport=o) wohoo! :nurse:

aww congrats! I knew you would :)
