    Thanks! I will also buy the ones that I deem necessary.

    Hey Lynsey, I presuppose you have rented them...they are really cheap if you rent them, true...I have no experience with rented books. Do they cover the length of time you need them? Thank you for your suggestion, I am inclined to give it a try.

    Where do you buy textbooks at a good price? I am looking on ebay at International editions and I am not very comfortable. Any suggestions? The new textbooks on amazon are not very different in price from used ones...Thanks for suggestions...

    Karen, the X-rays are good for 5 years. They are good for a longer time, but they cost $200 and up (vs $120 the blood test). I will do the chest ray once I start working - right now I am looking at the cheapest alternatives :) Thanks Lynsey for your answers (I have finally put a face on you) I have spotted you on Facebook, so you cannot hide anymore :) We (I) owe you at least a coffee (or a tea) at the Starbucks in the Breezeway!

    Oh, another question....sorry....it doesn't look that I am registered for the summer term 2014 (so I don't know wait what my FAU dues are). Do you appear registered?

    Hey guys, just a curiosity...I always need to do the Quantiferon (blood) test for TB and it is darn expensive (not covered by the insurance I suppose). If it is good for only 1 year I would like to wait until we get closer to the clinicals. Any suggestions? Thanks

    Hi, I am actually taking the BSL course tomorrow through the M&M Medical that was in the orientation package ($30) which is not bad in terms of cost. So I will see some of you guys tomorrow at 9am for the course. Lynsey, the registration is quickly turning us poor - background check, ATI, shoes, stethoscope and God knows what. For now it is the Certified Background info and paperwork that makes me become another "kind of poor" :) Good luck everybody! Oh, BTW, visit the FAU health services, they really have very reasonable prices for our immunizations/doctor's visits (besides the prices are visible online).

    I know this sounds weird, but do you know if we need to register for courses - to go on MyFAU and add the classes that were mentioned on the blue paper handed to us at the orientation? I thought they were just registering us for the right classes, but I was informed differently form the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Thank you! Oh, BTW, I am taking a RedCross CPR class that does not mention AHA on it. Do I need to retake it? I understood that they want a AHA card, right? Thanks again! PS: Quendi, I would like to personally thank you for everything you have done for us (those present and the other numerous people who were just passive readers), I mean thank you "in person" at some point in the program if you agree to identify yourself :)

    March 13 for a positive response, I am almost ready to give up my superstitions! I am in too and just sent the "no, thank you" response. I'm kidding, of course. See you all at the beginning of the next month for orientation! Also, a little question for those who know more, where do you ask what scholarships are available for nursing students and where to apply for those? I need money for the first semester as I am going with the non-resident status (which burns my skin :). Congrats again!

    Thanks Quendi, you are really a very, very, professional blog moderator. I bet you are going to be a leader in the nursing field at some point, you have the skills and the potential.

    Where can you find the info regarding conditions to enter the clinicals such as BLS, immunizations etc.? And do you know how soon in the program they start the clinicals? Thanks for the info.

    Thanks Quendi for the reassurance. I really appreciate your optimism.

    Hi guys and congratulations for those who made it so far and sorry for those who haven't and were as qualified as most of us. The waiting time is very difficult to say the least. In this vein, I have received today a message from the College of Nursing informing me about the programs available (the ABSN and the traditional) and I freak out a little....is this the rejection email? Has anyone else received the same email? Thanks for your responses...

    I was looking in my emails and I was told the pople invited for the interview are going to be 80 in number 40 for each program. So, are the interviews another step in admission or it is just a chace to personally meet with FAU professors and present our motivation. Thanks for your responses.
