    Orientation is two days long; they introduce the professors, talk about the school, school policies, safety issues, fire issues, peer-advisers, they answer any questions you might have, and this is also the time where they assign you lockers and mailboxes. I don't know about the CPR though, because I wasn't required to do training last year since I was in the three year program (no patient contact, plus the license would have been void by the time I reached level II).

    You only wear the scrubs for clinicals and you only wear the lab coat for nursing lab. You can wear street clothes in all your other classes. However, if you are running late to class from clinical (if you have a class after clinical), you are free to wear your scrubs into class so you don't become late from changing.

    By any chance did they send anything about the drug testing and the background check? Thanks. Thank you everyone for helping me out with all the emails. Look forward to meeting you this year!!

    Sorry to post twice in a row. A lot of the three year students who are moving up to traditional are not getting these emails (uniforms, booklist, etc), I'll talk to Ms. * when she gets back (on Aug. 2). Keep me updated you guys, my worst fear is that I won't receive the email that tells us to register! Eek! Thanks so much, you've all been a great help! To think what would have happened if I didn't stumble across this thread! :redbeathe

    Thanks for replying! I talked with other students who are in the three year program and are now starting clinical, and they haven't received any word on the health assessment or booklist. Do you mind sharing the health assessment information and the booklist? Maybe send me an email? Thanks :))

    Hey, I'm student at PBISN returning this year (completed first year of three years). I haven't received an email about the health assessment. I would also like to know if anyone got a book list or has that not been given yet? Thanks :)

    NLN Pre entrance exam- Driving me nuts

    I took the NLN last year and am currently a student at Phillips Beth Israel. I scored a 152 composite and a 99 percentile overall. I saw this thread and wanted to share what worked for me because it might help you as well. To help me study for the vocabulary on the test, I used the website freerice.com. It is a website that tests your vocabulary; with each question answered correctly, it increases in difficulty. It really helped me with the vocabulary. To help me study for the science section, I used the blue Baron's Regents Review guide for both biology and chemistry. It's a pretty long read (I read the whole thing), but it's very helpful. I don't have a suggestion for the math section, except to use the NLN review guide questions as practice. I really hope your NLN exam goes well and good luck studying.

    Hello Back2Nursing 09, I hope you do well on the NLN and get into PBI for 2010. (If you do, we'll probably take nursing courses together since I am in the three year program.) A great way to raise your score overall is the Pre-RN Entrance Examination study guide. It's helpful in all three sections and there many practice questions and examinations in the book. A great and fun way to raise the verbal score by improving vocabulary is to go to freerice.com. It's website powered by the UN that donates rice each time you answer a question correctly and it's super simple to use. There are many subjects to choose (basic math, chemistry symbols, language) but you will want to do vocabulary and grammar. It's great because if you get a question wrong, the program will ask the question again eventually to help you learn it. For studying extensively into biology and the labs, a great study tool is the Barron's Biology regents book. Be sure it's the large blue version as that is the one that covers all topics. For chemistry, I used Prentice Hall Regents Chemistry review book but they do not sell as it is used for high school students studying for NY state regents. My best bet would be studying from Chemistry for Dummies or going over the review in the RN-PreEntrance exam study guide. For math, it's pretty simple. But if you are not good in math, the RN-PreEntrance exam study will be the best way. These are the things I used to study for the NLN. My verbal score was 99%, my math was 99%, and my science was 96%. I had overall 99% percentile and a 152 composite. I hope this helped.

    I have a palm centro phone but I didn't think they would allow it (although you can turn off the phone service without turning off the actual phone) so I purchased a Palm M515 specifically for class. :)

    Hey, Liz, how much was the deposit if you don't mind me asking? I was one of the people who called to see if I was accepted and didn't get my packet yet (I was in the second batch, last name begins with R). Thanks a bunch.

    If you look at collegeboard.com for Phillips Beth Israel, it said last year there was 285 students, so there's probably different seating numbers for each program. http://collegesearch.collegeboard.com/search/CollegeDetail.jsp?match=true&collegeId=2180&searchType=college&type=qfs&word=phillips%20beth%20israel
