Name: Maria

Years at NVCC: 1

Joined the FBook Group: Yes

Track: Traditional, but still waiting for the results of Momentum application.

Career Goal: BSRN

Planning to Transfer: Yes, Mason or VCU.

Classes Completed: all the pre-reqs, plus some.

About me:

I am currently a stay at home mom to an adorable 3 year old. I wanted to be in the medical field when I was younger but "life" got in the way, hopefully this is my 2nd chance to go for it. Getting into this program was tough and I still think my getting in is pure luck! :D Congratulations to everyone and I hope we'll all have a wonderful year ahead of us.

Questions:

- has anyone asked if we can buy the package of textbooks and HESI bundle before the orientation? I don't want to be pressured into buying an expensive set, especially when a cheaper source might be available, just because we have barely a week to look for them elsewhere...

Years at NVCC: 2

Joined the FBook Group: not yet

Track: Traditional

Career Goal: RN for now

Planning to Transfer: Yes. where? Mason

Classes Completed: all the pre-req plus some transfer courses from my previous university

About me: I'm 23 y/o (but trust me I look very young. It's just very funny sometimes that people think that I'm 12;) )I'm a wife, but not planning to have kids any time soon.

I love gardening,cooking,baking. I'm very quiet, but if you know me,you'll be surprised.

I went to a university in DC before I transfered to NOVA, but the university closed down before I get my degree.

Questions:

- I tried to join the NVCC Nursing class 2013, but I couldn't find it.

can somebody give me a link to the page?

-Is there any one here signing up for the CPR class at the MEC on July 19th?

-the NUR 111 book is it really around $500?

Can we buy the book online?

I look forward to see you all at the orientation;)

:thankya: I've looked into the INOVA classes after reading through the FB pages. But despite being a bit more expensive, the MEC set-up is best for me. BTW, thank you for putting up the FB page ... very helpful indeed!

That's fine;)

Btw, have you guys ordered the stethoscope yet?

Is there any store that carry the model that they recommended?

I went to Amazon.com they do have the same model,but it doesn't include the pocket organizer and all the stuff that you will get if you order online through the website provided.

Any idea?

nat2 : amazon doesn't have it as a bundle but they have the organizer on the site too. I am debating on the stethoscope because the one i previously had ( my house was robbed and they stole my stethoscope too, odd thing to steal) was good but now i can't decide if i should get the same one. But if you price it out its about the same the only difference is that if you're a prime member for amazon there's no shipping fee so that's the only thing you're saving on.

Hi Nat,

If you have access to Blackboard, there is a link in the Orientation module under 'Uniforms/Supplies' regarding a Nurse Kit that they recommend the students to order. The kit includes a stethoscope, scissors, chart pen, and disposable pen light, all for $56.50 (it's nurse kit #370).

Hope this helps. :)
