  • Specializes in I'd like to go into oncology....

Good morning everyone,

I just wanted to start our own thread so we can discuss any of our own issues here. I don't know about the rest of you guys but I'm super excited about this. I can't wait to get started! I wish everyone luck...I'm sure we're going to become a very close group considering we'll be spending everyday of each other's lives for the next 27 months! I think we came in a good time because I was told by one of our nurses who does the preceptorships (she teaches the new grad nurses) here at Doctors Hospital (part of Baptist) that this is probably going to be the last group for a little while. I couldn't imagine going to Nova without this scholarship. Alright, that's all for now hehe...feel free to make your own questions or comments.

Well, from what I understand, 40 is the maximum per group. Or maybe it was 60? Who knows...I'm totally excited also. I'm just getting all my things ready for the 31st. I think I might head out to buy my uniforms this week at this uniform store that there is on US1 and 62nd Avenue. I already ordered my lab coat since the bookstore said it takes up to 5 weeks to be processed. I just found out classes end on December 11th for anyone who was interested in knowing when the break would be (since I can't seem to find an academic calendar anywhere on the website). Well, let me know if anyone hears about anything we should know about...

Did you get fitted for your coat at the bookstore in Davie? I need to order my coat and purchase my uniforms. I believe we need to get teal right? Does it need any patches or emblems? BTW take your Baptist Badge that you should have gotten (I am an employee already so I already had one, but I believe everyone in the scholars program should have gotten one) to the UA uniform stores in front of South Miami and they will give you like 10% off on your purchase.

I forgot about that...I work for Doctors so I already have a badge too. Where do you work? I tried sending you a PM but I guess you haven't put enough post up. Email me at [email protected]...

I emailed you back!

I can't wait to start! I'm hoping this month goes by fast!

I wonder if we wear scrubs on the first day of class...

I think since most of us won't have the lab coat yet, we're supposed to go in business casual attire. I'm almost positive that they won't expect for us to come in scrubs on the 31st.

Has anyone seen BHSF on their financial award packet? Does anyone know when Baptist will let Nova know??

Hi there. The information for the Baptist Scholars is supposed to be included with the acceptance packet from Nova. Maybe you should give Baptist a call to see about the application. The GPA requirement is 3.0 and you'll have to go through another interview.
