    If anyone would like a "mentor" feel free to friend me and PM me. I'd love to help all of you in any way I can. Not even 6 months ago, I was in your shoes. NP1 is challenging, but it's also fun!!
    Some tips to get prepared:
    -Do all your readings that they tell you to.
    -Practice Dosage calculation. You don't need the stress of failing it the first time and it's really not that difficult if you practice.
    -Get organized now
    -If you have kids, love on them as much as possible now.. go to the zoo, take em to the movies etc. You might find that doing the fun stuff once you get started will be a little more difficult.

    Good Luck!!

    Congrats to everyone that got in!! I am really good friends with OKNurse2be and I am also going into NPII in Jan. If I can offer any word of advice to you it would be to get organized and dont fall behind. You have a great team of professors in NPI that are there to guide you. It seems like just yesterday we were sitting in orientation but time really does fly by. Use as many resources as you can, I really liked Fundamental Success book. I wish you all the best of luck and if you have any questions or need any advice feel free to friend me and PM me as well

    I have this one Amazon.com: 3M Littmann Lightweight 11 SE Stethoscope, 28", Black, #L2450: Health & Personal Care in lilac. Works really well.
    If you go to a uniform store (Uniform Shoppe on N. May gives 15% off to Students) you can try different ones out to get a feel.

    Shopping for school stuff can be fun...

    Hi, I am going to go for a nursing in OCCC. Can you give me info about the Accuplacer test?
    Is the Accuplacer Writing test a mutiple choice test? Or a test that requires students to write a long essay?
