I know admission results aren't out yet but....

Does anyone have insight as to what we are expected to wear?

Do we wear scrubs even to class? Or professional to class and scrubs only to clinicals. Or is business casual okay for class?

I currently have a second job at a retail store. I'm putting in my two weeks this week. Regardless of whether or not I get in to the program. However, if I need a lot of professional clothes, I would like to buy them while my discount is still active.

I don’t know about clothes- I imagine it’s just casual for class and scrubs for clinicals.  I have gotten into contact with someone in the program right now and I’ll ask her.  

I just got a jury summons so I emailed and asked about when Orientation might be and was told May 15.  She also said she expects decisions to be put by the end of the week (knock on wood).  

The person I’ve chatted with that’s in the program also mentioned the things on the college of nursing’s orientation page- info about CPR classes, vaccinations, computer requirements- things to think about if you’re trying to start to get things together.  I went ahead and registered for a CPR class on friday.  I figure if I don’t get in-it doesn’t hurt to have.  

Trying to be patient!!!

I heard back from my contact that i have in the program, she said that there is an emphasis on dressing for first impressions but that a lot of people just wear jeans or leggings to class.  There are days when they’re instructed to wear scrubs or an OU polo that you can purchase, and always scrubs to clinicals.  And she said there are some occasions where they’re asked to dress in business attire.  Hope that helps!

I sorta like the idea of dressing up to class...realistically we will all be exhausted and want to roll in with yoga pants and hoodies, but having to dress well definitely gives off a more professional vibe. I think it would encourage me to take things more seriously...think “career mode” vs “student mode”.

I definitely agree! That’s why there’s coffee and concealer. I think it’s especially true if any employers ever come to visit. I know in my boyfriend’s nursing program, employers came in to recruit and catered lunch frequently throughout the semesters. Dress to impress!

Can we take an online CPR course?

You probably could if it’s a renewal.  It’s supposed to be a American Heart Association BLS class.

Check your junk box if you haven’t gotten anything...

I saw your posts and my empty inbox and freaked out.  But I did get an acceptance in my junk mail box.  

 

I’m in at OKC!  Where are others going?
