    taking out a loan for school am I wrong

    Why would you even think this is wrong? You're using the loans to get your education and, therefore, get yourself in a better position financially once you're finished. You wouldn't be able to do that without the loans...so, no, there is NOTHING wrong with getting a loan. Loans are a bummer in the fact that they eventually have to be repaid...but they have lots of repayment options and are always willing to work with you and whatever situation you're in... I WOULD encourage you to pay the interest on your unsubsidized loans as you go though. (It's an option they give you...check with your financial aid office.) This way, it's not just being added to your principle and compounding interest...making your final loan amount a lot higher when you get out.

    New Nursing School Student...HELP!

    I used http://www.bigwords.com for books. It's awesome! You type in the title/ISBN/whatever you have and it searches all the book websites and lists them by price. Such a huge help!! Even using that, I still ended up getting most of my books at Amazon or alibris.com. I bought a Littmann Classic II SE on http://www.medisave.net. They will laser engrave your name on it for FREE (most sites charge about $14 for that). I think it was around $70 with shipping and everything. I haven't purchased any of the other items yet...but based on posts here at allnurses, the website allheart.com seems to be pretty popular. Hope that helps! :)
  3. Thank you so much for the tips!! Awesome post. :) I'm starting school next month and am SO excited!!

    New here and NOT expecting this!

    Congratulations on getting in! I can imagine you're feeling quite overwhelmed right now. Just take it one day at a time. You'll be fine. :)

    Help! What do I need to take to my orientaion?

    Wow! Three full days of orientation!?! I just have one full day and I was wondering what the heck they're going to do with us all day...I can't imagine doing 3! We already had to turn in all our CPR certification, immunizations, etc. But I've been wondering the same thing. Is a notebook and pen sufficient? What happens at orientation??
