    I tried to order my books online today, but the 150 modules are not available. Do you know when they will have more? I like to order my books all at once & have them delivered. Thanks in advance!

    When I tried to order my books online Tue., the 150 module wasn't listed. But I bought my books @ the bookstore yesterday and there was 2 big stacks of them there. Call the bookstore cuz they should have them in stock. The bookstore was dead with business.

    Hello there,

    I am currently on the wait list and don't expect to be called until Winter 09. Do they ever call people early that you know of? I was also just a little curious if you could explain to me exactly how clinicals work? How many hrs/days a week, that kind of stuff. I work full time days right now and just need to get together a game plan for when the actual program starts. I'm very excited but nervous all at the same time!

    It really all depends on when other people get called up. Some may have moved on, some may not be done with pre-reqs, or they might all accept. They told me 18 months & I waited 7. It's really luck of the draw, I think.
    Clinicals are usually 2 days a week. If you get the AM slot, it can be anywhere from 6:30Am to 2; 7 to 3, etc... PMS are 3:30-9:30, or 4-10:30. Then of course, your classes are the other two days a week. You typically have one week day off, plus the weekend. Although, I am sure many others like myself, used that one day to go in & practice the skill that was learned that week.
    It's alot. I honestly don't know how people that work full time do it. I know they do, and I admire them for it, because I know I couldn't. I think if you are organized and have a job that will work with you, you can do it. Good luck!
