    I am having difficulty opening some of the powerpoints. A few are only 4kb in size - wondering if there were upload errors to BB when posted. Anyone else having trouble opening any of them?

    Has anyone bought a pocket organizer? I was looking at them online and found out some have a belt loop and others have a belt clip. Our tops have two front pockets. Does this go in the pocket? Does it even matter if it has a loop or a clip? If it does, which one should we get? This one has the belt loop: This one has the belt clip:

    Regarding textbooks - I am trying to buy only what is really needed or used/required by the instructors. I think the books below are listed as optional for Term I, so I don't expect any of them to be required by an instructor. (Please correct me if I am wrong!) 1 - Taber's Cyclopedia Medical Dictionary - have read several comments on forum that it is not needed/used - can use any medical dictionary or internet. 2 - Dosage Calculations - ditto - not needed if you go through the PowerPoints and practice tests. What about these others? Are you purchasing them? Have you heard from any Term II-IV students who say they use(d) them? 3 - Laboratory and Diagnostic Tests - ? 4 - RN Notes - ? 5 - Davis's Drug Guide - ? (And why is there an "s" after the apostrophe?! :))

    FSCJ/FCCJ point system/withdrawing

    From the second page (back side) of the FSCJ Associate Degree Nursing (RN) application: "Work Experience Applicants to the generic track who have work experience as a licensed practical nurse, medical corpsman, respiratory therapist, EMT, paramedic, or FCCJ-trained medical assistant only may receive five points for each year of work experience up to a maximum of four years. This work experience must be within the past five years, be documented on employer stationary [sic] and include beginning and ending dates of employment. Work must be actual hands-on experience involving assessing, formulation, implementing, and evaluating plans of client care."

    I read an interesting question on this thread https://allnurses.com/fl-nursing-programs/fscj-fccj-point-484897-page2.html. Does anyone know the total raw score points on the NAT?

    Wilbur, are you referring to the Raw Score (Academic Aptitude + Reading Comprehension + Natural Sciences) before multiplying it by .64 for the points calculation?

    Thanks! You were very helpful. That means I won't be renting it. :)

    Is the iClicker needed for only Term I? Or will it be used in Terms II, III or IV?

    I have never used my computer on campus before. Is wireless available everywhere on North Campus like outside and in the classrooms? Or only in certain areas like the library or computer lab?

    This may not apply to you, but I'm mentioning it in case it would be helpful. There is another forum on this site called "Nursing Licensure With A Criminal History" You may want to look through the threads or post your same question there: https://allnurses.com/nursing-licensure-criminal/ Good luck to you - I hope that it will all work out for you with a happy ending.

    Doesn't the instructor display the PowerPoint? I never had to have my own internet access during the prereqs. The instructors displayed the presentation on the classroom screen. This must be something new?

    Does anyone know if it is possible to transfer from Days to Nights/Weekends at any time during the program? Possibly between Terms? (I would assume that it would be subject to space available.)

    Students should also be aware that the FSCJ BSN program emphasizes critical care nursing - perfect if that is what you want to do: http://floridastatecollegecatalog.fscj.edu/preview_program.php?catoid=18&poid=3924

    meltnpointofwax, Thanks for the info. How is the ipod touch used for power points? I must be missing the obvious.

    Has anyone purchased the RN Student Skills Kit from Stat-Line Industries? Would anyone mind posting a detailed list of exactly what is in the kit? I have someone who has offered to give me some of the items in the kit if I can give them a list of exactly what is in it. I am so relieved because money is so short. However, I am embarrassed to go to the store just to look at the kit and then not buy it. I would be really grateful if someone could post a list of the exact contents (or take a photo!). NursRatchet, you are so good at these things, do you have your kit yet? Can you help?

    FSCJ Students - Which BP Cuff?

    FSCJ Students, Which blood pressure cuff (sphygmomanometer) did you purchase? Where did you buy it? Prior and current students, which one do you recommend? Thanks!

    FSCJ Students - Which BP Cuff?

    If a cheap one will suffice, I don't want to buy it at the bookstore or a uniform store where the chances are good that I will pay top dollar. Which blood pressure cuff did you purchase? Where did you buy it? Prior and current students, which low-cost cuff do you recommend? Thanks!

    A new FOR profit ASN program in Jacksonville

    There is no TEAS entrance exam for FSCJ. (The TEAS is a requirement at UNF.) The entrance exam at FSCJ is the "NAT": Registered Nursing School Aptitude Exam. The NAT is offered five days a week on every FSCJ campus. You can schedule it virtually any week day you want that campus is open. There is no waiting list at FSCJ in any sense of the word. The application deadline for the ADN (RN) program for Fall 2010 term at FSCJ was 5:00 pm on Tuesday, June 1, 2010. I took the NAT exam at Kent Campus at 10:50 am that day. Completed my exam and received my scores around 1:00 pm. Drove up to North Campus and submitted my application at 2:00 pm. Received my acceptance on July 28, 2010. 58 days from application to acceptance - a total of less than two months. No waiting list. I am in.
