    For those who were wondering, we called the doctor that "Y" recommended, and getting the health certificate there costs $30.

    $30...not bad at all. Im still wondering if Hep B and MMR are the only vacc we need to have?
    Also, does anyone know where we purchase books?

    Amazon.com is what I've been using for years, can save so much

    Can someone clue me into where we can find out what books we need for classes? I don't really want to have to buy them from their bookstore since half.com is usually so much cheaper.

    Also I heard a nasty rumor at the place where we're to buy our "pretty" green uniforms near the UPR campus. She said that we are going to be wearing them to class as well. "B" My roomie called the offices at the nursing school and he said that they told him it was true. I was at orientation and I know that "Y" said we could wear street clothes to classes. I don't know who "B" spoke to, but they said that "Y" was misinformed. ...isn't she the dean though??? So if anyone else has heard anything on this please chime in. Oh, and I looked it up and it does say somewhere in the packets that we can wear street clothes to classes. I'm so confused. I REALLY hope that the policy has not changed.

    Nursing students:

    "The school of nursing is having an orientation for new admissions to your program on Thursday, July 29th, 2010 at 10:00am . Your attendance is required."

    SoOo, I'm wondering what is this meeting going to be about 1 week before class start's ...
  11. by   Cahoon BSN RN
    Yeah, I love how well this school communicates with it's new students. At least it's right before school so we don't have to go out early, (those of us who are still on the mainland). I bet it's just a last orientation type thing...I hope. I got into San Diego State Univ. also but decided to go to IUPR instead and last week I got a letter from SDSU saying that they had to cancel their program for next year. I didn't read the whole thing, but i'm glad I didn't go there. So....hopefully it's nothing like that.

    Cahoon, SDSU was my original plan. I'm so glad I decided to go to PR instead... That email made me realized that PR is the correct decision...

    Mike: I had the same response. No more second thoughts about IUPR. Island life here I come!
