    They say ur supposed to be able to register online but when i tried last semester it wouldnt let me. But its really easy to just do it at flo. You do it in the continuing education office. which is upstairs, directly diagonal from the finanacial aid office. its like a piece of paper u fill out with ur name, A number, and the title of the class (BLS for the healthcare provider) and ur in! but u do have to go over to the cashier's office and pay for it when u register so be sure to bring the funds! Maybe we can enjoy an overpriced lunch in the student center next semester!

    For the CPR, the American Heart Association, www.americanheart.org, has a locator feature for classes. I am taking mine Thursday night at the Mills, $60, no shared manequins.

    Also, your Hep B, if you need it, is free, at least for now through the county health department. I live in St Charles County, and when I called to see if they were cheaper than insurance, they told me there is a state initiative to get health care providers vaccinated, so as long as the state funds the program, if you tell them you are a nursing student, it's Free! I like that. I took my acceptance letter along, just in case, but they never asked.

    If you have not started your Hep B series, get started. The second shot is 30 days after the first, then the third is 6 months after that. I have to figure out what that means for me since I will finish the series after we start classes....

    Actually I an enrolled to take the CPR course at Flo Valley, where I am finishing u my prereqs. Thanks for the info about Hep B, I live in Saint Louis County and contacted one of their health centers, and was told it cost $5 if if funds are still available and I have to provide proof that I am in nursing school.


    To Libra_8, thanks for the info I went to continuing education office and registered for the course, it cost $60! Yeah, I would love to meet up for lunch, if I have time, lol.

    Hi all!

    I was hoping someone could shed a little light on what someone coming into the accelerated BSN program can expect. What does a typical week look like during our first summer there?

    How much class?

    How much clinicals?

    How much studying/study grouping?

    Is this a forty hour a week, a 50 hour a week, a 60 hour a week committment?

    Thanks!

    Thanks Greg! Thats a great question! R U starting this May?
  13. by   davisg01
    Yes, I have been accepted in the May class. I just really haven't seen anything about what kind of workload we are facing. It would be nice to have some idea of what we are facing.
