Hello everyone! I got accepted first round to the Fort Wayne campus, and I finally got the email about orientation. I do have a big question about the TB test. Where do I get that done? The orientation packet demands a 2 part test where you get tested twice, or a blood test, but I don't know where to get that done at. CVS offers TB testing, but it's only a 1 step process. Is that something my doctor can order to be done? I'm trying to not go broke getting all this done haha

 

At our orientation that said that you can typically go to CVS, Walgreens, Kroger pharmacy and have them done there.

Also if you do get stuff done at CVS, like I got my flu shot there, you have to take the paperwork with you to your doctors office so THEY can sign off on it, apparently the paperwork from the pharmacy isnt enough 🙄

Hey!!  I am super excited!  Soooo ready to just get going already!  The last 3-4 weeks have been going by soooo slow!  lol.  This is my last day at my current job.  I do have to say that I can tell there are definitely people that are jealous!
Anybody else have that experience?  The good people I work with are super excited for me, but ya know.

The books that we got are huge too!  They wont all fit in my backpack, so still trying to figure out how to transport all of that.

Hope everybody is doing good!  Good luck to everybody!  And just like you said, if anybody has questions or needs help please feel free to ask!

Im hoping this next year will fly by!

Oh my gosh!! Yes, usually people are in disbelief, although I have had a few people who are already nurses say to reach out of I need anything so that has been SUPER sweet. But sadly it seems like MOST of the time people dont want to see others move on and advance and succeed. 

The books are HUGE. I also had to buy a new seperate duffel bag to carry all the lab equipment 🙃 then I got another smaller bag for clinicals. It seems like there was just like SOOOO much stuff to move around and organize. 

I'm also just ready to get moving. My clinical day has already changed once too haha but I am DEFINITELY not complaining about that, it went from a friday to a Thursday and Thursdays are days my husband is usually off anyway so I wont have to panic as often about finding childcare at 6am 😬 but that's another big reason I am ready to get going, just for all of us to get used to the new schedule!! 

What classes do you have on Monday? I have Fundamentals and Lab! I am POSITIVE this year will be done in the blink of an eye!! (Although it probably wont feel like that some days)

I am super excited and nervous to start!! I already got an email from my Fundamentals instructor about “what to expect” for the week and what chapters we’ll be covering! I’ve also already heard from others in the program who started last semester to expect a “pop” quiz on the first day of the chapters that my professor sent in the email. So I’ll be reading this weekend just in case! 😊
