    Last year they blocked both days because of the drug test. You are either scheduled for Thur or Fri. So just in case you have to go get your test on Friday, I'd keep the 4th open. We were basically told day/time/location when we went to orientation that Thursday. Some people didn't realize because it wasn't really clear in the letter and had other commitments and only had Thurs blocked but had drug test on Fri.

    thanks for clarifying that cmac...they should let people know that instead of giving it the generic title "other nursing requirements", that makes it sound like its a whole other day of important things.

    It does sound strange, I think they don't want people to know it's for a drug screen lol

    I should probably be at the orientation on the 3rd. Last year they had the student officers (in the begining you will elect approx 6 students, one will be the president, another vice president, and a few other positions) from a year above us talk at orientation. I would love to stay after to meet some of you and answer any questions

    Are you guys feeling feeling excited, nervous, both? It really is such an amazing program, you guys are going to love it!

    That's a good point Redpanda about the drug screen!

    I'm feeling both excited and nervous! Nervous because I hear such horror stories about how difficult it is! Excited because I also hear from a lot of my friends that are already Nurses that the places they work will always hire a BCC grad over any other school because of its reputation.

    I've heard the same thing about being a BCC grad and people wanting to hire them. That's a good thing!

    that's great! i started looking at a kindle and getting my books through that. has anyone else done that before?
  11. by   redpanda
    As of right now BCC has a policy that says students can not bring electronics while they are on clinical time. I would not buy the drug guide or the nursing diagnosis handbook for the kindle because you typically bring these books with you. I am not sure if they allow electronics in the lab, but if they don't, I probably wouldn't buy the main textbooks for Kindle either. I'll find out about the lab for you.
