    Shadyside SON questions

    yeah you pay it over the 6 semesters that you are there! and there are a lot of loans you can do.. they offer fasfa and private loans and stuff which is what everyone that i knew had to do because they didn't qualify for the tuition forgiveness... I would call and ask the school about the forgiveness and see if they still offer it.. and the tuition basically doubled..and they told us it was for "economic situations".... rriiight!!

    Shadyside SON questions

    I started in August and I have the tuition forgiveness and basically you have to pay 12,800 total... divided into 6 semesters. The total schooling costs around 32,000.. and UPMC pays 19,000 and you come up with the rest... BUT the class that just started this semester (March) was not offered the tuition forgiveness so I don't even know if they still have it..
  7. Fall term started AUGUST 30th!!
  8. You will LOVEEE SHY SON!!! =) Good Luck!!
  9. I go to Shadyside now and I started in August but they also have a March start date!

    Starting to get nervous!

    Its like... How is a current measured?..and the answer would be AMPS or amperes. And How is resistance measured.. and the answer would be Ohms. Really just study this site.. Ohm's Law for Electrical Circuits - Succeed in Understanding Physics: School for Champions This is all I studied and I got all of them right. There might also be a picture of electric following from a source and you have pick which way the current is flowing!

    Moved to PA -- Need FBI Fingerprint Checks (???)

    I had to get fingerprinting done to start nursing school in PA and we had to go to http://www.pa.cogentid.com/index.htm and sign up from this website through the department of welfare because you have to be pre registered before you go to a site to get your finger prints scanned. We also had to get a background check done at the same time and for the total of everything it was $36.00. If you go to that website all the information should be there and you have to look up local fingerprinting centers near you to go get them done.. it takes about 2 weeks for them to come in the mail! Hope that helps!

    Starting to get nervous!

    I used Barron's Nursing School Entrance Exam book to study and thats it and I thought it helped a lot! Make sure you brush up on basic anatomy questions like where is the tibia located, etc. Also there was 5-6 questions on electricity about kilowatts and currents ..very weird stuff to be on a nursing entrance exam.. GOOOOOD LUCK!!

    UPMC Shadyside School of Nursing '09'

    Does anyone know what all Clinical rotations you do throughout nursing school at Shadyside? I'm curious if you do anything with Pediatrics or Labor and Delivery?
