    Yes, the first day wasn't bad at all. It all seems pretty do-able. We'll see when I am going crazy. I am also having my first lab tomorrow though. I haven't had that yet. The lady behind me had hers and said she liked it and the instructor was very nice. Thanks for asking about my father but it was my brother. :wink2: I am old. ha ha But it was sweet of you to ask. Well, still have 35 more pages to read on Activity in Fundamentals. That chapter is taking me forever to get through!!

    Well, I have pretty much been having a nervous breakdown along with self doubts since I got the syllabi. Can I do this? Have I just wasted $2000? I have been freaking out to say the least. Wishing I was starting in October or January or March. Is this just me? Everytime I start to do the reading I am interrupted or something happens. My brother had a stroke last Saturday is just one of many things.

    Which books do you still need? Email me privately if you want to. Also, I asked earlier if anyone else filled out the form we were given for the Michigan Nurses Scholarship and if anyone had heard anything about it. I still haven't but I looked on the State of Michigan website about this scholarship and it states on the site that the schools are responsible for determining who they give these funds to based on whatever criteria they choose (i.e. financial need, grades, or how far along the person is in the program). Well, has anyone received anything from this?

    Yes, I sent my husband out to Binson's to get one and he came home with one that costs $40 and didn't say one way or the other if it was latex free or not. BUT went to Macomb book store and they have them there for I think it was $25.

    Dang it...I just opened that Health Assessment book last night so now I can't take it back. Does is come with the Mosby's CD? Is everyone done with ACE passport? It has to be done by the 25th.

    Gee...I don't even remember what came when but I just got a letter last week saying that I could come and pick up the syllabi for the classes. The syllabus for 1530 was in the letter. I am ready except for finishing the ACE passport test although I have done something similar I think when I applied to Beaumont's Rad Tech program. It certainly sounds like the same modules. This is what to read for the first week of classes: 1510 Practice of Nursing Taylor Ch 1 Legal Aspects of Nursing Practice Taylor Ch 7 Gerontological Nursing Taylor Ch 20 1520 Review syllabus Read Wilson Ch 1 and skim Ch 19 Taylor pp 83-7, 505-527, 221-3 1530 Read Taylor's Clinical Skills Ch 4 Asepsis and Ch 9 Activity Read Taylor's Fundamentals Ch 27 Asepsis and Ch 39 Activity View Modules 2 Asepsis and 9 Activity

    Wondering if anyone else applied for that Michigan Nurse's Scholarship? And has anyone heard anything regarding it? I didn't get a thing from the Federal Financial Aid. Would be nice to get anything at all!!

    From what it says in the handbook I would assume we need to wear the scrubs to lab everyday. I am not sure about used books being left but I was just there today to pick up the nurse pack. There was no sphygomometer in it. I thought there might be. The Nursing Diagnosis book is finally in also.

    Did you need one for your lab coat and one for scrubs? We will only need scrubs one day a week. Oh and the nurse packs are finally for sale. I called today.
