It is confusing about which building to go to our first time. The annex building is always locked and you only go there for clinical skills lab the 1st 6 weeks, before you go to the hospital. You should of received a paper with a order form for the uniforms from flagstaff. You only really need to buy the polo from Flagstaff since it is embroidered with a Southwest logo. You can buy a white lab coat from anywhere and buy the $3 patch from Flagstaff and have it sown on the jacket. It just has to be sown on to the the outside upper left arm. The pants form Flagstaff have an elastic waistband and fit horrible. You can buy the white scrub pants from anywhere too, but they are strict about them not being real see through since they are white so make sure you get ones that are a little thicker. You won't need your uniform until 6 wks into the semester when you officially go to the hospital, so don't stress over that. If you want to look at the uniform stuff, you can go to https://www.flagstaffuniforms.com/html/schools_SWTN.htm If it asks you for a username and password, southwest is username and tennessee is the password.
You will only need a stethoscope, sphygmomanometer (blood pressure cuff), and a pen light right away. You can buy these from anywhere as well. They will mention a blue skills bag that has all of that but a lot more. Don't buy it!! It's a waste of money and you be provided everything else that's in the bag during clinical skills lab.
Mrs. V***s, the head of nursing department, will talk to you at orientation and will explain everything about emailing her to get your permits for registering. It is first come, first serve, so I went to the nursing computer lab right down the hall and emailed her immediately after orientation. So did everyone else, but I managed to get the classes I wanted.
