    Has anyone received their financial aid or any syllabuses for the nursing classes??

    hey, does anybody know if we have the course ID to the evolve course, and if so, how to find it? I've been trying to go into it and look around but it needs a 'key", which I guest is the course ID?

    I got my first choice, which was Section 8. I chose it because the clinical site is closest to my home, and I thought that was the most important thing right now considering how very strict they are about clinicals. in case something happens, it would be easier and faster to get to on time!! I DO, however hate that this section involves Fridays! I really wanted my free Fridays. Glad this is a hybrid. Is it true that we don't meet every week though, because that would rock!!

    I had my intake appt. today and the woman I saw said that it shouldn't take the full two weeks...I guess it depends on who you talk to.
    But I found out that they do not pay for uniforms or equipment anymore!! I was looking forward to that. That's gonna hurt!

    Does anybody know if the school will except copies of the documents we have to turn in, or do they only take the originals?
    I haven't turned mine in yet, but in the packet they tell you to always make copies of everything and never give anyone the only copy of a document. So I assume from that they will want the original.

    Does anyone know if you can get a dr's. note to excuse you from the TDaP for medical reasons? I ask because there is nothing in the packet that addresses that...so is it just get one or go home??

    Been sooo busy trying to get all this straight and my own primary care is giving me the run-around; wasted a LOT of time waiting for them!

    Congratulations, Emmy! And I don't see why they would not let your husband pick up papers for you.

    Yeah there's no way they can wait until August 1st with orientation so close to that. I've given up, they won't talk to me in person, over the phone or through email so there's nothing else I can do.
    Don't give up!! You had over 200 points, so it has to be some sort of mix-up. I believe it will work out for you.

    That's why I went to talk to them today. I was concerned about deadlines and stuff. All she would say was they weren't all sent out. Maybe they do it so all the places you need to go aren't slammed all at once with nursing students. I don't know. I'm still nervous about it. It doesn't seem right.
    You may be right about not wanting a big rush with everybody trying to do things at once. But when I turned in my application they told me 8 wks. also. So I was surprised to get an answer in early July. I could use more time though!

    Does anybody know if you can get your physical from another MD besides your own primary care doctor?? I'm having trouble getting in with her because she is booked up way past the deadline and I can't wait on her!!

    I talked to the lady at the office and she said all the letters haven't been sent out yet and were supposed to wait 8 weeks which is August 1st.
    Hi! That's interesting to know because our packet indicates that we the deadline to get in our physical, shots and background checks, etc. is July 29...so if the packets were not even supposed to be mailed yet, we should get more time to complete these things, too. I wonder what the cut-off date for those who receive their packet after August 1 will be?? By the way, good luck to you!!

    I felt the same way justdoitright about the flu shot. I volunteer at a hospital so I had the choice of getting flu shot or wearing the mask for 5 months. I heard horrible things about the flu shot and didn't really want to do it. However, I felt it is going to be almost a requirement for me as a nurse, so I did it and got the shot. I was fine. I received the flu shot last October. I had no side effects but a red mark on arm for about 3 weeks. I hope this will help you in making your decision. Good luck.
    rjohnson, it does help to hear your story. Thanks so much. makes me feel better about it, but I'm going to try to squeeze in a bit more research about it before I make my decision. Good luck to you also!

    Thanks for the information, Shellye1970. But there is just something about that Flu shot that just doesn't sit right with me. I have heard a lot of things about it that are detrimental, and I don't just go on heresay, I try to do research myself. I'm still on the fence with this one.

    Does anyone know how we find out if we got into days or eve? Are they doing evenings this semester?
    Yes, they are doing both. It should be printed on your envelope which one you were accepted into.
