Any recommendations? Also any supplies we should stock up on? Sorry for all the questions but I’m trying to get everything I need w/out spending more than I should. Any clinical supplies other than the stethoscope?

I believe the kit from school should come with a pen light but I'd also recommend medical scissors, a dry erasable marker (when you meet your patient & update the white board in the room), a recorder (for lectures - many student do this), and this foldable clip board

@CONAH-sn

I think I ordered most of what I needed, but I have a lasting question...

So the students and/or staff nurses being in a nursing bag carrying all their work stuff?  Are there lockers?  Room for a work bag, lunch bag and a spare pair of clothes?  Have you seen staff/students shower after shifts?  Do they wear shower shoes?  

I got a pocket organizer and stethoscope clip, etc etc because I’m uncertain as what to expect. 

I also ordered a clipboard with a calculator, etc.  

feedback?  

Thank you VERY much!

Students bring either small bags or regular size back packs to the hospital. No lockers allocated for students specifically. Not much space for personal items and you don't need to bring much to the hospital. Have not seen staff or students shower after shifts.

Did the school or hospital check your “slip-resistant” shoes?  The only shoes I found that fit are extremely noisy and I’d rather wear regular quiet shoes if possible.

I’m applying for LVN to RN bridge summer of 2021. I know that’s far out but I have a question for the current LVN to RN students. Did you do your pre reqs and your college required classes before you applied? (Obviously you did the required pre reqs) Also are you working during the program?

@Jennys Journey Yes, you must have all required prerequisites be completed prior to application. 

from the school website...

Can I apply to the program if some of the pre-requisites are in progress?

Beginning January 2019,  you may apply to the program only once all prerequisite courses are completed, posted on the transcript and received by the deadline.

I will be working per diem on Fridays and weekends during the program. I must mention that I am not currently in the program but that is my plan once I start nursing school. I figured that classes and clinical's are held Monday through Thursday, I can work at minimum two 12hr shifts at my facility. 

Good luck with all your prerequisite! Get the best possible grades, it will be worth it when you apply.

Did anyone get drug tested?  My health screen didn’t include a drug screen and I’ve been waiting to try CBD oil for some pain I’ve been having.  I know sometimes it can leave traces of THC in which leaves behind the chemical that is tested for.

thanks.

I didn’t. If I’m not mistaken, no one did.

They don’t drug test. They may if there’s suspicion of being impaired in class or clinicals, but as far as I know, since marijuana is legal for adults in California they can’t penalize you for testing positive.

I know you got your answer about the science pre-reqs but as far as the one listed that may be taken concurrent with the program each semester (I think it’s, speech, poli sci, and PE) I took them all before I started and do not recommend taking them while in the program. I’m in the LVN-RN program right now (just finishing up Summer ‘19)  and I couldn’t see being in another class in addition to these. As far as working while in the program, I won’t be but some of my cohort are working part time and managing.

Thank you so much again for your feedback. 

Do we get time to eat during clinicals and/or lecture days?  I was just planning on bringing a lunch/snacks.

Thanks.

What kind of thermometers are used in school vs the hospital?  Are non-contact thermometers used?  I got one and it seems off; supposedly measuring the temperature of the outside, not the inside?

Feedback?
