    Poll: Nurse and law enforcement couples

    Mine is, but we were married before he became an officer and I entered healthcare. Many of the people he works with are married to nurses too. I always thought it was funny because I didn't realize how common it was until he joined the force.

    I got mine too. It looks so nice on official letterhead!

    It will show up even if it is expunged so you probably want to call the school and ask.

    ;( I'm sad. I'll be praying that you get in elsewhere, and I'm positive you will, but I'm still bummed.

    DarkBlue- You just reminded me that I had a dream last night that you got in! It must be a good sign. But then again, I also dreamed that I was taking my poly sci test in the desert, literally in the sand, and didn't see anything wrong with it.

    Oh I see. Cool. When we register for our classes, is it at the university orientation or the nursing orientation? Will they tell us which classes to register for? I'm assuming it probably isn't a good idea to take any additional general ed classes in the first quarter. Sorry I have so many questions, you seem to be the only person I know who has some insight into the process! Thank you!

    Haha! I think he meant it goes until 4 or 5 pm. I think it starts at 8 or 9. Kosmic- Since you did this last year, when did you hear about all the health and background stuff? How about classes? Don't we have to register for classes way before orientation? I have been assuming they would send us some kind of admission packet, but it's been more than 2 weeks already and I still don't have the hard copy of my acceptance letter.

    I wonder what we will be doing all day. I'm assuming they will be sending paperwork with all the requirements before then. I hope it's soon because I would like to get started since there is so much to get done.

    The orientation for CSULA nursing is the day before school starts! I've been wondering why it's so late. It seems like all the other schools are doing it way sooner.

    I wonder what they are working on? I thought all the scoring was done. It's crazy to make you guys wait so long, they should at least tell you something by now.

    Watermelon- I haven't heard anyone in thread mention the RN-BSN. Sorry, I wish we knew more! Jumping fish- when you graduate from CSULA, you get your BSN. This allows you to take the exam to become licensed by the state, this is your RN. Some people do the RN-BSN program, but they are already RNs who hold an associates degree and want to get a bachelors degree. The length of time it takes to graduate depends on how long you take to do your general ed classes. The nursing program is a locked step sequence, so that will always be 3 years. It is possible to do your general ed in 2 years, so you would graduate in 5 years. Look at the CSULA school of nursing BSN page and they have roadmaps to help with course planning.

    Sacramento Nurse Shadowing

    I don't know for sure, so take this with a grain of salt, but I can't imagine that any place would allow that due to HIPAA. I have worked in three hospitals and anyone having contact with the patient or their medical info had to have a background check and health clearance. It makes sense if you look at it from the patient's perspective. You know your good intentions, but the patients don't and the hospital has the responsibility to protect their privacy. You may have to befriend a nurse willing to share her experiences on depth or better yet, take a CNA class. You will learn more than you ever could observing anyone for a day. If anyone knows of another way, by all means, jump in! I wish you luck in your decision!

    I haven't received a hard copy yet either. It sounds like they haven't sent much of anything this week.

    Congrats Buddy! Join the Facebook group! Dark- I think no news means good news! I am hoping against hope still! I need at least one other sarcastic chick in our class! Spiffy- I think you should call too. They had a question about three of my classes, but they called me in Jan to clear it up. If I were you, I would call to make sure they didn't send it to the wrong email or something, because something doesn't sound right since you have 25 points.

    I know it must be awful to still be waiting, and I know I don't really have the right to comment on it, but I think we all know by now that the SON doesn't operate on our timeline. I am positive they will be sending more acceptances though. Even if they had sent all the emails, which I doubt, not everyone will accept their spot. I guess what I'm trying to say is it isn't over yet!

    I sent a request too. I am totally older than all of you! Oh well, every group needs a mom
