    I haven't heard anything about that scholarship.

    I called the FA office again yesterday and after I explained that I had like 11 chapters I had to read before Monday, they put it through. 20 minutes before they closed.

    I should be able to pick up everything else today. Unfortunately I get to drag 4 kids under the age of 7 down there to do it. This should be fun. Sorry for whining. I am pretty anxious and this whole FA thing is just making it worse!

    Well, I have pretty much been having a nervous breakdown along with self doubts since I got the syllabi. Can I do this? Have I just wasted $2000? I have been freaking out to say the least. Wishing I was starting in October or January or March. Is this just me? Everytime I start to do the reading I am interrupted or something happens. My brother had a stroke last Saturday is just one of many things.

    Oh, I am sorry Nell. Is he OK??

    YOU CAN DO THIS. You are a smart lady and we will all get through it together. You aren't alone, even if it seems like it right now.

    I had it today. It was really laid back and easy. We just went over the handouts and handwashing/activity and watched some videos. It made me a little less nervous, but I am still pretty scared and overwhelmed about 1510 and 1520. Everyone in my lab was really nice (there's only like 7 people). It will be fine!

    It went good. It was just really basic, but you do need to know your reading. So make sure you go prepared( I only read through everything once.) Also make sure you watch the videos 2 and 9. You'll be doing those skills in class.

    Do we only have to wear our scrubs to Labs and not until week 2?

    I know Baker has to wear theirs to all their classes and I am getting confused.

    TIA!

    gentle tos reminder:

    while it is important to be able to network, everyone should be mindful of the following:

    1. it is a small world - when we narrow it down to a state and throw in some personal info, there is actually a pretty good chance someone may recognize you if you are not careful. your privacy is paramount to us.
    2. while allnurses.com is a wonderful place to vent (without excess personally identifiable details) it is not the place to express why ("x" specific person, place or program) is terrible. gripe away, but since we cannot permit allegations to be made about named entities, your care in not naming them is very much appreciated.
    3. please do not give out personal information about others. do not name names where anyone could identify the person in any facility including your nursing programs.

    Has anyone looked in the schedule of classes and seen that under 1630 there is a note saying "each section includes an additional weely 4 hr lab to held on campus." Does anyone know if that means we will spend half of our clinical day on campus half at the hospital, or does it mean we have a whole day at the hospital and another 4 hr day on campus?

    It means you are at the hospital for one day and at the school for 4 hrs a different day :wink2:.
