  1. Thank you. Castlebranch is who my school goes through as well. I'll be reaching out to my disabilities office this week to let them know about her comments so no other cohort has to listen to that. Thanks again for your insight.
  2. Hello, the nursing school I was accepted into states that any student who is on a prescribed controlled substance such as adderall, opiate or a benzodiazepine, etc needs to speak with the directors secretary and disclose this information to them and have a conversation about it. She stated, “the hospitals don’t want anyone doing clinicals that have anything show up at all”.... the way she stated it could almost be interpreted as, you may not eligible for the program if you are on these prescribed meds. Her statements seemed very misguided to me, to put it lightly. I can understand marijuana since that is federally still illegal but some of the listed prescriptions fall under treatments for disabilities and disorders and are very legal with a valid prescription. Her statement seemed borderline discriminatory andexploiting students to disclose their medical information. It was my understanding that if a drug screen comes back positive that the drug screening company will call you, get your prescription info and doctor info and verify it. Once verified they report the results as negative. I don’t see a need for students to have to disclose anything regarding their prescriptions or medical information besides physical clearance, immunization and titers to the school. Has anyone experienced differently? Are hospitals not allowing students who take these drugs into clinicals now days? Wouldn’t that be deemed discriminatory? Is this statement the directors secretary made about students having to disclose their prescription information and medical information to her completely out of pocket? Have you experienced similar? How would you navigate this? Thanks in advance.

    I went to a Catholic high school and Catholic college so I don’t care as well. All the same piece of paper at the end of the day. Lovely debates in my world religion classes as well. Actually really enjoyed it.

    I feel you. They also make you take Book of Mormon classes for core curriculum but yeah... whatever.... a Mormon BSN, Catholic BSN, cat worshiping BSN... is a BSN...

    Yup and it’s a podunk no part of Idaho anyone wants to live in. Unlike Boise, it dumps snow there. But the upside is it’s cheap rent wise because no one wants to live there and you get a BSN.

    There’s a BYU satellite school in Rexburg, Idaho. It is easy to get into and it would be cheaper for you to go there and get your BSN than to pay 125k for an freaking RN at Gurnick. Gurnick straight up price gouges and takes advantage of the impacted California nursing schools. I hate that school!

    If you guys are going to drag someone drag the person who said they received an acceptance email. I’m just being silly with good intentions. I’m in the same boat as you guys
