    Ya hooooo All the day students from 3rd term have passed. Some didn't know until the very last day. Good luck to you all who are getting ready. I know they are starting to plan your arrival. This was the hardest thing I have ever done. As far as the fitting for uniforms, they do have a set day- but I ended up going to Heros after the day and still getting mine in time. Hope to see you all when we come in to talk about our year.

    Congrats to the 2 of you!!!! I am getting so scared and nervous but excited at the same time! I just want to get some info already - I wish that we would get some info on books and supplies that we need so I can start buying them - I like to have time to be prepared!!

    So did the majority of people pass - I think that GL has a pretty high percentage of passing. Any word on jobs for the graduates or do you have to wait until you pass the NCLEX? Have fun at graduation and be proud of yourselves - you deserve it!!!!

    Yay! I couldnt wait to get home to check the mail!!! These books are over $800 on amazon!!! I didnt go on the website that we are suppossed to order from so I didnt see any cds. Are you going to order new or used? Are you going to sign up for the CPR course or are you guys already certified. It seems REAL now dont you think!!!! Hope the old posters come back to tell us about graduation!!!

    Hey you guys.....what are you gonna get for shoes - the packet says white professional shoes but I was wondering if sneakers were ok.....I wore asics when I did my clinical for CNA and they are awesome - I really want to get them for Lowell....any thoughts?

    First....have you talked to your friend who graduated - I want the scoop!

    Hey again girls!! I was looking to rent some of my textbooks from or Its way cheaper than buying them used. I dont have any idea what I am going to get for shoes. What do you guys think? I will definitely be taking the prep course but not the CPR class because I am already certified. Oh man it really does feel real now!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHH Screaming from excitement

    Ok ladies! He said the CDs weren't used last year in classwork they're more of a study aid. So my guess is, not required! I'm definitely buying used because 800$ for books is a little too rich for my blood
