    Hi Evalynn,
    I am going into my 3rd semester at UTH SON and I can tell you that we have many MAC users and I haven't heard anyone complain about compatability issues. As a matter of fact, they brag about not catching viruses
    I can also tell you that we RARELY bring the big books to class so dragging them around campus really doesn't apply. Wait before you purchase a PDA with Pharm software, you may find that you don't really need it and you will have plenty of time to consider it before clinicals start for the semester.

    The writing sample is based on a medical situation to see how you are with your critical thinking. My situation was a 17 year old boy who is brain dead and his mom and stepdad want to donate his organs. How do you handle this? The interviewer asked me the following questions: Please tell me about you and your background. Why do you want to be a nurse? What is your definition of compassion? Give an example of how you showed compassion to a patient. How many times did you take A & P II? (Also some others but I'm drawing a blank right now). I would recommend that your dress code be business (when you mean business you dress for business!).

    I want to encourage everyone reading this who doesn't have a 4.0 gpa to apply to UTHSC SON. My science/nurs prereq's gpa is a 3.3 but I scored an 85 on the reading section of the NET and nailed the interview to be admitted to the Fall program. They look at all 3 of these things when making their decision.
