  1. Yikes. Is this why there are so many high-paying travel nursing jobs here?

    Not sure why this didn't post, I already replied! (Fellow Norwalk Student here) I use Prime, so I had everything in my cart on Amazon. I didn't want to purchase online though, due to conflicting reviews, I was unsure of the fit/cut/styles. I was expecially curious about the various pant styles, I went in to the bookstore to try them on over my clothes. I ended up actually buying mine at the bookstore because I was able to use financial aid funds, and each piece was only $2-4 more than amazon.

    @ Thatchickomi I am also very anxious about starting NCC. I called two professors (C.Y. and K.H.) and while I know the first one went away on vacation, neither have returned my calls. I am wondering if we need 12 or 24 months of PrepU software for Brunner & Suddarth's Med/Surg and Taylor Fundamentals. Its a significant price difference. Makes me wonder if we have to keep buying different books and access codes throughout the program!

    @ Fauzia At NCC, we were only given one assignment from Taylor Fundamentals. Thank you for your insight regarding dosage calculations. I will get started! Does anyone know if we have to keep buying books throughout school?

    Hi everybody! Just got a WHOLE bunch of books. Oh my... Curious if all the CCC program uses Brunner & Suddarth's Med / Surg as well as Taylor Fundamentals of Nursing? At Norwalk we received our clinical assignments about a month ago. Only two weekends left before it all begins! Everybody ready? Excited??

    i have attempted to reply to this several times, no idea whats going on.. just wanted to add my two cents..i think its better that you found out you are diabetic now so that you have the summer to get used to any new meds and get your sugar under control!

    Thanks to everyone who chimed in saying that schools have different due dates. I would be scrambling too! My insurance just kicked in, so I would be paying for everything OOP. Also I have read that some insurance carriers do not cover the cost of titers, has that happened to anybody? I am NOT interested with being re-vaxxed for something I am already immune to, but it found it ridiculous that the immunization would be covered and not the titer for some individuals. Will be calling insurance before I make the appt. Sorry for those of you having issues with titers etc...I am the queen of "if it can go wrong, it will" so I am CERTAIN I will be searching for docs, titer issues etc.

    Besides proving your AP2 grade (transcripts) and registering for classes, what needs to be done by this date? I keep seeing July 1st as the deadline!

    Hey, I have seen people saying there was a June 1 deadline for documents, but I am only seeing that date as a dealine for registering for classes..Am i missing something? I'm seeing this on my NCC bannerweb (docs for accepted students): Information regarding the registration process for nursing courses will be communicated via your College email. Your deadline for registering is June 1, 2017. Students are required to provide documentation of current Professional Level certification in CPR for adult, child, infant and AED by July 1, 2017. (Heart Saver is Not Acceptable) Certification can only be earned through the American Heart Association or the American Red Cross and must remain current throughout the program. More information about course offerings is included in these documents. All of our clinical partners have specific health requirements that you must comply with in order to attend clinical. Information about the requirements and the forms you will use are enclosed with these documents. All Health Assessment Forms must be completed by your Healthcare Provider and uploaded to Castle Branch by July 1, 2017.

    I'm sure we will hear more about this in orientation, but I wanted to share something that was news to me! Found this on 2016-2017 Handbook: 1. The student is required to complete the online CT Hospital Association (CHA) Health and Safety Training Course and required clinical orientation activities prior to participation in clinical experiences. The course is available at: Health and Safety Training Course

    Hope that's not the case! I would say that out of 5 girls in my AP2 class (@HCC) who applied to CCCNP, 4 are closer in age to us, one is a young 20's. However, not one of them is going to Norwalk! I don't know anyone there. I am surprised that you are the only one who spoke up on this thread! Out of 80 seats, so far only 52 have registered... My advisor was in touch within days of my acceptance, I made an appointment and registered that same day. Follow up emails went out saying if people hadn't met with their advisor they needed to hurry up and do so. Wonder what the hold up is!
