    Well it most definitely will be an issue.

    CSU Columbus State University

    After you get an acceptance letter in May, you have to have you physical paperwork turned in by the end of June I think. I think you have to be able to lift fifty pounds and be cleared to be on your feet for extended periods of time. If a person was morbidly obese, the physical would show that they would have difficulty with standing for long periods of time, which is required during clinicals and as a nurse. I think it would be probably be a deal-breaker for sure. Do you mind me asking why?

    No, that's not true. There are a couple of people that have been let go from the program but not for being immature or not understanding the commitment. There were different reasons. A few people didn't make it to this semester though because of pharmacology.

    You will definitely get in. Don't sweat it. These people that are missing class and being rude WILL NOT last. You are not allowed to miss class. If you do, it has to be a good reason, and then you have to document the reason and right a letter requesting that it be excused. Classes are going okay except for pathophysiology which is online. I thought it would be easy, but the way the assignments are compared to what the tests are makes it really hard. You do start clinicals your first semester, but like 5 or 6 weeks after classes start. Before clinicals start you are checked off on skills that you will need for clinicals, like med administration, Foley insertion etc. Then you either start at a nursing home or hospital and then switch half way through. We got our letters of acceptance the first week of June, so you don't have that much longer to wait! When is the applicaton due? Isn't like April 1 or something?

    Question about shift differentials

    I'm a student, and I was just curious.

    Question about shift differentials

    Thanks. I was just wondering, because that can rack up the pay quite a bit!

    Question about shift differentials

    So, if for example there is a 2 dollar shift differential for working nights and a 3 dollar shift differential for working weekends, what if you work a weekend night? Does that mean you get 5 dollars total or do hospitals take the higher shift differential wage (3 dollars) and just use that.

    Social sorority and nursing school.

    Prettyladie, How is school and your child and the sorority going? I was just bumming around this thread, and I thought it was pretty interesting. Especially everyone jumping to conclusions about you being a selfish mother. GEEZ! I wish people would read the post first THOROUGHLY:)

    It's going good. Having a good Christmas break and ready for next semester. I really feel like I've learned a lot in just the first semester!
  13. All my instructors use powerpoints. I really enjoy some of them. The teachers that just have bullets, and then explain the bullets, are better. That is the proper way to use a powerpoint....you can't just write everything down. It's way too boring. I know that senior year, we won't have powerpoints though.

    Columbus State University? Going for BSN..

    I just started Columbus State's nursing program, and I love it! It's a lot of work, but it's all nursing classes instead of taking other prereqs and nursing classes at the same time. I don't think I could do that. The teacher's are really helpful and everything is very organized for us which is a good thing because there are a million things going on, but we are all clear on our responsibilities.

    Columbus GA New Grad Wondering about Salary.

    I heard this second hand from my someone that told me his fiance just graduated from CSU with a BSN and got a job in the ED making 26 an hour. I didn't ask details like if that was with shift differential or not. Have you heard anything?
