    Hey guys, I know I'm a little late to this forum. I'm in for Spring 2014 and hoping to get to know everyone. I went to the Tuesday session. I meet with my advisor yesterday who gave me the low down and took me and another student on a tour. I'm definitely drinking the nursing school kool-aid already, everything is so exciting. I live on the east bank, not sure where I want to do my clinicals yet any suggestions?

    lol @ nursing school kool-aid! haha, I think we all are on it at this point. Hopefully our enthusiasm will last once we start! Everyone is warning us about not having a life, etc. I think we can all handle it. I went to the open house on Saturday and they said if we can make it through all it takes to actually get to nursing school then there's no reason we can't be successful IN nursing school. Sounds like legit advice to me! I can't wait to get going. I bought my uniform this week and already ordered one of my textbooks (Nursing ethics). I think I found it on Amazon for the cheapest. January will be here before we now it!

    Did they not tell you the Ebooks were mandatory? My Advisor and past students told me even if we buy hard copies we need the ebooks, which is cool because it's only $450.00 for the entire two years. That sounds like a very logical outlook, thanks for sharing. If you don't mind me asking how much was the uniform with the patches etc?

    Yes I know ebooks are manditory but one our required texts is not an ebook. Nursing Ethics is not an ebook. (and only about $20 online) I'm so glad we only have to buy our textbooks at the beginning and we're good for the two years.

    The uniform tops are about $25 a piece and the pant cost will vary because you can pick your own style. Also lab coat cost will vary because you can pick your own style. I think mine was about $25 or so. I didn't see any that were more expensive than $30. I only bought one pair of pants at Bayou because I figured I could just order another online.

    That's good too know thanks!! That's not as bad as I thought. Good idea with ordering online for the second pair. Thank you for sharing, I'll see you at orientation! =)

    So have you guys gotten everything done besides the CPR and TB?
  12. by   budderflize
    I just had my second TB done yesterday, going to have it read tomorrow... CPR done, all other Health complete... just waiting on the LSBN letter for clinical. I do realize that I did my TB early... I didn't want to cut it down to the wire... too much stress flying around lol
    Next year does not require a 2 step test, but I will have to have it done before the end of Fall semester.
    The Spring 2014 sections with times and instructors are up on LoLA if anyone was not aware. Just throwing that out there. I have 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th choices ready for Reg. day... I just want to start!!!!!!!!!
