  1. What clinical site were you assigned to?
  2. Has anyone received notification of their clinical assignment/hospital?
  3. Also, will we be earning a fire card during orientation? (I already have BLS, but will we be earning that as well?)
  4. I cannot find any of the required text books [for 1st semester] on usctext.com This is where we are supposed to purchase them, correct? Has anybody else tried to purchase the texts yet?
  5. What kind of thermometers are used in school vs the hospital? Are non-contact thermometers used? I got one and it seems off; supposedly measuring the temperature of the outside, not the inside? Feedback?
  6. Did anyone get drug tested? My health screen didn’t include a drug screen and I’ve been waiting to try CBD oil for some pain I’ve been having. I know sometimes it can leave traces of THC in which leaves behind the chemical that is tested for. thanks.
  7. Did the school or hospital check your “slip-resistant” shoes? The only shoes I found that fit are extremely noisy and I’d rather wear regular quiet shoes if possible.
  8. I am very fed up with looking for a slip-resistant shoe that actually fits and does not squeak on hard flooring. I noticed most of the nurses waiting in the HR area at the hospital were not wearing slip-resistant shoes (nor were they puncture resistant and had different colored soles). If we wear shoes that have the same colored sole with puncture-proof material, do you think anyone will ask about the slip-resistant factor? As long as we're not working the OR (or ER?) I don't think it will matter much. I have spent weeks looking for a shoe that meets all criteria and nothing has been worthy.

  10. See the attached photo. I think this is it.
  11. They have a collaboration with CSULA and are in the middle of trying to coordinate something with CSUN so I’m thinking pursuing the BSN within he Cal State community shouldn’t be a problem. I don’t think Western Governers cares either. Not sure about going for a Masters/Doctorate.
  12. Anyone ordering the Cardiology Master? I’m thinking about ordering that.

    License in two states?

    To piggy back this...is it possible to move out of state and get a new license by endorsement if my school was not ACEN accredited? The BSN school was, but the RN school was only regionally accredited and approved by the board of nursing

  17. What exactly is included in this $100 kit we are supposed to order? I see we are supposed to order a stethoscope, blood pressure cuff and a watch. I prefer to order these on my own instead of the other kit listed on the "Cindy's Uniforms" sheet. Is anybody else ordering a Littman cardiology stethoscope (or another type)? Or an electronic one/blue tooth? Any suggestions on BP cuffs or anything else?
  18. Is it cash only for the scrubs/sweatshirt? Do we need to bring anything besides our driver’s license? Thanks ✌

    Oh I know...I just read stories about people not being able to work at the VA and certain hospitals etc. due to this...so was just curious if anyone else was concerned. ✌

    There are only 25 ACEN accredited -AA- programs in California. This is low compared to how many AA/2 yr programs there actually are. Is anyone concerned about going to non-ACEN accredited school? I know Cal State LA is accredited for their BSN program but doesn’t it mostly matter where we earn our RN from? Just thinking out loud. Thoughts?

    79%.... I don’t think I got in. Congrats to you!
  23. Anyone? Thanks in advance.
  24. I just gave them my immunization records. I only had 1 TB test within the past 12 months so they gave me another one. I go back Monday to have it read then I’ll have health clearance. No drug tests. Maybe they’ll do that before clinicals begin?
