    Have you tried any of the RN residency programs? These are geared toward new grad nurses.

    I completed my readiness assessment last week, and my enrollment counselor did not mention that I was not required to take it since I was a licensed RN......

    Travelingnurse Really!!??!! I didn't ask anyone about the forum but I wanted to so bad. I signed up for Saturday clinicals. What day did you sign up for? I didn't sign up for the boot camp though:-(
    Just FYI if you can remember I'm the one that had gold framed channel glasses on and long hair (extensions) I think it was in a braid. I was the one who ask about a list of student names and numbers! I sat by the entrance door:-)
    I can't wait to meet you!!
    Don't you have a Caleb too?

    Hi keepmovinglpn - I signed up for Saturday clinicals too! I was thinking that maybe the we could form a study group with the students on this site. Let me know what you think. I too thought that exchanging numbers/emails was a good idea. Maybe we can do it on our own. I did not sign up for any of the boot camp sessions either, but would love to hear from anyone that plans to attend. Not much longer now......

    Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but during orientation I thought we were told that class would be on Tuesdays from 9-4 and clinicals would be either Wednesday or Saturday from 7a-7p. We even noted our preference on the sign in sheet. Has this changed?

    We did receive Ipod touches if you wanted one. It has been great so far and I know my clinical instructor does not mind us using them on the floor. Also, someone mention something about the Davis drug book, DO NOT I repeat DO NOT buy the book if you plan on having the ipod or if you have any smart phone because you will have an app call nursing central that you download from one of the schools computers and in that app you will get that book for free. Do not try to download at home because it will cost you $150.00. HTH

    Thanks for the heads up!! Hope things are going well for you!

    Hey what books are you guys getting off of the suggested list? I dont think I need to get all of them. What is you guys oppinion??

    Thanks!!

    I think I'm going to order the "highly recommended" Test Success- Test-taking Techniques for Beginning Nursing Students. I'm still debating on the other suggested books. I have an older edition of Tabers Medical Dictionary, so I probably won't order that one. I wanted to download the Davis' Drug Guide for Nurses to my phone, but the iphone app is $49.99 and I can get the book on Amazon for $29. Still debating on the others; I wonder if previous editions would suffice? What do you think? Has anyone purchased any books yet?

    I know! It's alot! I lucky have got my immunization records in bits and pieces just bc of work. I did have to go and get the 2nd MMR done last month. The ppd I get done yearly bc it's required for my job. The hep b series I've had from a while back (lpn school) but I might need a buster, not sure yet.
    Now the flu shot are we required to get that or is it optional??
    I'm not sure if the Flu shot is optional or not - it is a requirement at my job, so I will have to get it; I would think that it might be at the clinical sites, but you never know.

    Has anyone ordered their uniforms yet?

    I haven't heard anything yet either! I was hoping that they would make a decision before Sept 30th. My interview was about the same as everyone else's. Keepmovinlpn, my TEAS score was proficient also, but hopefully that won't be the deciding factor for the selection. Good luck to all!!!

    I noticed that too. I counted all the slots and there were 39, and they are accepted 25 students. I so nervous to Do you know anything about the program or anyone thats in it now (2012 class will be the second year for the bridge) ?
    I do not know a lot about the program other than what is listed on the GPC website. I actually heard about the bridge program from one of my patients. I originally applied for the regular nursing program and was accepted, but asked for consideration for another term because I would not have completed all of the pre-reqs before the start of the semester. I wish I did know someone currently in the program - would love to hear some feedback on how it is going.
