    Hi Congratulations and Good Luck. You are starting a journey that will be over before you know it. I graduated the program in August 08. Lots of places to find books cheaper on line and Half Price books. McKinney and Northwest Highway are the best for Nursing Books. I just sold all of the Nursing books that I had left to the Plano store including study guides (Half Price Books) I have three Pair of white scrub pants that I would be willing to give to some one and one pair of black ( yes I know we are not suppose to wear black but some of us got away with black pants third and fourth semester) As far as the tops go it was cheaper just to get them at the embroidery place. I am sure that other graduates would be willing to get rid of the white pants ( at least those not working at Baylor Irving they have to wear white) Private Message me if you are interested in the pants

    Yes you will need to register for class but you do not have to worry about the class filling up because only nursing students are allowed in. So you can wait untill later to sign up. The everyone will be taking the same class at the same time except for skills lab.

    "need help! does anybody still have their book from pediatrics? i have been using the wrong book! i borrowed the book from the library because i didn't have my financial aid money yet, and it isn't the right book. i have wong's nursing care of infants and children 7th edition and i am supposed to have wong's essentials of pediatric nursing 7th edition. normally i would just buy the book, but i don't think i will get it in time because our test is on monday. (test 1 and test 2 are a week apart ) if anyone can help me please let me know! i would apprecaite it very much! i will either buy it from you, or if you let me borrow it for 2 weeks i will give it back. thanks!!" hi i used the same book that you have when i took pediatrics. i would not worry to much it was the only class that i did not have the correct book in (some classes i did have an older edition) the book that you have has the same information just different pages and chapters. i made an a in the class even with having the wrong book. good luck!!!!
  5. I am in my 40's just graduated from Nursing School, single and have three living children. Two of my children were in NICU. I just started a job in a large level 3 NICU. So I think the life experience that you have will help with getting a job in NICU. For this internship four nurses were hired all new grads two of us in our fourtys and the other two in their twentys. Good Luck.

    Take a deep breath. Make time for yourself even if you do not think you have the time. It helps if you keep your the stress level down. It all can be done and you will be finished before you know it. Good Luck.

    Yes I could not get in to take it before I started work and I knew that I could not take it the first two weeks of work. I was told that they would work around me taking it after that so I will schedule it as soon as possible. I will be working at Big Baylor in NICU. I was very happy that is where I wanted to go.

    We did not have to go the day before to pick up patients in OB or Psych. Some of the clinical instructors in Peds made the students go the day before to pick up patients ( I believe it was the clinical the went to Medical City Dallas) I went to Childrens Hospital and it was great we got to do emergency room , OR, NICU, PICU, PICC IV team, and a surgical floor. I went to Richardson for Psych instructor very layed back and nice. The other group got to see more intresting cases so if you are very intrested in Psych go to Green oaks ( the one by Medical City). For OB I went to Parkland great experience saw many babys being born also spent a day in NICU. You can do Peds with out the book.

    Backpack Advice

    I used a rolling scrapbooking tote. It was the right size for the books had a lot of places so that I could organize every thing. Had a place for all of my pens , highlighters, ect. It would also hold my lap top for when I needed to take it to class. I bought mine at MJ designs and with a coupon it was much cheeper than the rolling back packs at the store. I just now finished School and it held up very well Good luck

    Thank you so much.I think we are all a jumble of emotions right now one minute I am fine and the next I am freaked out. I am fine right now and will hopefully stay that way until after the test. It is only a test and I have to keep telling my self that. Good luck to everyone that is going to take the HESI tomorrow and we will all do great.

    I was on financial aid. I did not buy the book pack. I would buy used books and sometimes not the same addition but it always had the same material only on different pages. I did not use a book for pediatrics. ( I was mostly A with a few B student during NS) I would buy books off the internet and even at Half Price Book store the one in McKinney and the one on North West Highway are the best for Nursing Books. You do have to buy the supply pack from the Book store you will need on the first semester and one the second and that is all. Good luck and it will be over before you know it. I also bought my stethoscope on e-bay.
