    nat, CPR should be the easiest class we take as nurses... just pay attention and you'll do fine. :) :stdnrsrck:

    They also offer nurse kits on Scrubs and Beyond.com. I am ordering my steth separately and they have one w/o a steth for 15 dollars, the one with the steth is 30 dollars. Look under Shoes/Scopes then under Medical Kits and Tools. If you're like me I'm trying to save money every where I go... lol

    Genesis: I'm 18, almost 19. You have a few months on me ;P Katie: I'm planning the same route you are. I wish I had known about Momentum when I was in high school... could have saved some headache. Don't worry about not having much experience, you will pick it up fairly quickly. The hardest thing can be learning all the abbreviations. I'm an EMT and when I first started I was always asking my crew what things like STEMI and CVA meant. Amie: What an interesting background you have! Morgan: Kudos to you for going through this with young kids. :) Martha: You can do this! That's great you have so much experience as a transcriptionist, surgery fascinates me also. So many future CRNAs in our class... maybe we can get our Masters' together? I see that 2 others are reading this as I type... Shouldn't we be in bed? :)
  5. 1623, Congratulations! There is another thread for accepted NVCC students that I started in addition to the FB page. Can't wait to meet you!

    Acceptance to NVCC Fall 2011 Program!!!

    Hi I started a new thread for accepted students to the fall 2011 program, come check it out: https://allnurses.com/va-nursing-programs/nvcc-class-2013-a-581607.html :)
  7. Hello All, I wanted to start a new thread for everyone who was accepted (and because the other one was getting really long). :) If you could please share some information about yourself and any questions you have about the program, that'd be great! For Example: Name: Carolyn Years at NVCC: 1 Joined the FBook Group: Yes Track: Traditional Career Goal: CRNA (Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist) Planning to Transfer: Yes (Mason, BSN Program) Classes Completed: SDV 101, BIO 141, 142, 205, CHM 111, CST 229, ITE 115, HLT 141 + AP Credit in BIO, ENG, and PSY. About me: I know I've always wanted to work in healthcare but when I started volunteering as an EMT, I knew that I wanted to be a nurse. My senior year I applied to UVa and was not accepted and decided to go to NVCC because they have a well spoken about nursing program, and I could work to make money while I was at school. I plan to earn my RN through NVCC, then transfer to Mason and earn my BSN. I'm excited and overwhelmed but I have great confidence that our class will make it through together! Questions: - Is anyone else dreading buying the NUR 111 book? It's 520 dollars.... - Does anyone living near campus need a roommate/also looking to move closer to Springfield for the year? The drive for me is 70+ minutes. - Do we need to buy our own scrubs? Any limitations on colors/prints/style? What color do our shoes have to be? Can't wait to meet you all!
