Hello. Congratulations on be accepted!  I was accepted to the evening/weekend program. You probably already have your answer, but I just received the email that has the CNE Document checklist and "Next Steps" letter.

I haven't looked at the supplies we'll need, but I do have a decent stethoscope already.  I didn't see a list of supplies. Do you know what else we'll need? Hopefully they'll provide more details during the first meeting.  

The CNE checklist has a lot of immunization requirements on it. I'll need to look at my records to see if I have everything. The Hep B immunization is 3 shots. They are given 30 days apart, so getting that one started soon is important. The FCSR letter is also something I'll jump on first thing on Monday. I've got one from 2015, and as I recall, Missouri is notoriously slow to get these sent out. 

I was looking at planners online. There are several threads on this forum with recommendations. I'm leaning towards the Erin Condren planner (https://www.erincondren.com/lifeplanner). Do you have any suggestions?

The last item on the checklist, (KCANE Hospital Competency) 2018-19 Clinical Orientation Manual Exam (score of 90% or greater), doesn't say when the test will be administered. I hate to assume that it will be at the Check-In day, but according to the website, https://kchealthcareers.com/clinical-orientation-manual-exam/, the test is administered at the school. "Take the online CNE/KCANE Orientation Competency Exam through your school’s testing system. Please see your instructor for further details."

I might start studying for that one. The manual is 114 pages long, but at least they include the test, starting on page 78.

Do you already have your BLS?

Hey guys! 
I'm currently in the program and what I can tell you is not to super stress over the documents or KCANE test for the CNE check off. They will go over things more in detail during orientation (which I‘m sure you already had) and they will  make sure you guys are on the right track on the first day of school. The KCANE test isn’t hard and you can take it multiple times if you don’t get the 90% on the first try. I wouldn’t recommend studying it intensely (you have other things to focus on). The hep B test has a waiver you can opt out of if you don’t have the 3 part series done in time. Once you have all 3, the you can go back in and resubmit that information in castle branch! The first semester seems very overwhelming but I promise it will be okay. Just make sure you get everything done before you start clinical is the biggest advice I can give when it comes to that. 
 

good luck guys! 🙂
