    hope everyone had a great christmas! for the evening program, I know we have classes monday/tues and clinicals weds/thurs. does this mean we don't have to go to school on weds and thurs until clinicals start? also,i just wanted to make sure about the uniforms. do we need to wear uniforms at school?

    thanks again DaddyO. I looked at the supplies we needed and it says nursing kit, stethoscope, pen light, and bandage scissors. What is included in the nursing kit we ordered? do we need to get the others separately? if so, what would you recommend?

    I know this is early, but when is everyone planning to do their clinicals? wed/thurs nights or sat? I was thinking of doing saturday, but I think I'll stick to weds/thurs nights so that I can have the weekend to study and run errands. for the clinicals, do the professors or nurses let the patients know we are students? also, what kind of patients do we get for our first clinicals?

    what time do you all get out of work? our classes/clinicals start at 5:30 right? so it means we need to leave work early so we wont hit traffic and be late.

    we are given a choice to do saturday clinicals instead of weds and thursday nights? if we choose saturdays, what are the usual times? also, if we choose weds and thurs night, arent the patients usually sleeping? for clinicals, what would our exact day be like? do we get assigned a nurse to go ask what we need to do? do they tell us on the first day what we do and we keep doing that until the end of clinicals? so we take vitals, wash the patients, etc?

    I need to get my uniforms but I'm waiting for my next paycheck. How long do you have to wait for the uniforms? Do they give it to you right on the spot? also, what exactly did you get from the store? just the uniforms or other things as well? how much was the total??

    DaddyO, is the externship required or you did it voluntarily? you applied for externships at hospitals? is this only allowed after level 2? do you know if hospitals will hire new nursing students at all?

    how is the job market for nurses these days? i see on craigslist and hospital sites, there are a lot of positions for nurses. Can we get jobs right away when we graduate? what is the salary for those who just graduated?
