  1. Anyone starting the MDC Nursing program and in need of scrubs for school? I've got some- new with tags I'd like to sell. New with tags- MDC Nursing program scrubs- one complete set in green, size Medium. Green pants and top and one white top for clinical rotation. Purchased at MDC medical campus. Green top originally 34.00 asking $20.00. Pants originally 25.00 asking $15.00 and white clinical top originally $41.00 asking $30.00. These scrubs never go on sale so this is a great deal. Can buy separately or all together. $65.00 for everything that originally costs $100 plus tax. Contact me if you are interested. Susan MDC Nursing program graduate

    Moving to Meridian

    Hi all! My Finance is taking a job in Meridian so we will be moving. I'm looking for information on any of the hospitals in the area. Trying to figure out where it's best to apply for RN jobs. My experience is mainly in cardiac/telemetry med/surg as I currently work on a acute cardiac unit with 48 beds. Are patients are a combination of acute cardiac (STEMI, CABG, TAVR, AAA repair) and general med surg as we are overflow for the med surg floors. If any of you are familiar with any of the hospitals in the Meridian area I would love to have your thoughts. Thank you!! Regards, Susan

    MDC 2016 Fall RN GENERIC PROGRAM

    Books for sale for MDC Nursing program and new with tags uniform (never been work) - I have some books that are still being used for the MDC nursing program. Have Fundamentals and the health assessment book for first semester. I also have have a ladies green uniform in size Medium that has never been worn and the white clinical top. All with tags. If anyone is interested in buying them please let me know. I will be selling the uniform for slightly less than I paid for them so it will be a better deal than buying from the bookstore.
  5. Hi everyone! Didn't realize someone had asked me a question about the NCLEX book I previously mentioned in a post. The book is the Saunders Comprehensive Review for the NCLEX-RN exam by Linda Anne Silvestri. It has really great summaries of everything and also has questions. I like it because it is a quick overview of important things for each section. Make sure you get a new one because the online code is invaluable. Most of our class has used it to study for the HESI exams which we have to take for many of the classes. I use mine so much pages are starting to fall out! The ISBN number for the book is:978-1-4557-2755-1 You can use that code to find the book or order it at any book store. The other book of just the questions is ok and will be helpful but the one that everyone is using is the Comprehensive review one.
  6. Btw- warning- orientation is rather lame. Just want to give you the heads up. Suggestions for books that will help- Fundamentals for Success- see if you can find someone with an online version. It will help you the first semester get into the swing of things answering critical thinking questions. That it seems is what everyone has the most difficulty with. Brush up on medical terminology. If you don't know what a word is in the question, how can you possibly pick the right answer. The lingo is a completely different language so can be a challenge to many. Buy the Saunders- NCLEX review book- It is about $60.00 but has been the most worthwhile thing I have bought. Mine is now almost falling apart I have used it so much. Buy it new with the code inside. That code and the online review questions will be invaluable to you to help you study for the HESI each semester. Remember in MDC the HESI is worth 15% of your entire grade so unless you have an A in the class you cannot afford to get a big fat 0 on the test. At MDC you must get 750 to get any points for the HESI. Below 750= 0 and will basically drop your grade 2 letter grades- A to C, B to D etc. Good luck and when they say you need to study they are not joking. Our class started off with 50 people- 23 flunked fundamentals, we lost 12 more in Pharmacology and Med Surg. Out of the original group I think we have 15-17 left so far and I am in 3rd semester. Nursing school has been one of the hardest things I have done and one that I am most proud of. Keep studying- you can do it!!
  7. I am a 3rd semester nursing student in the Generic program at MDC Homestead. Re. Complio. I signed up fro two years just to get it over with. Otherwise you have to sign up again after the first year. Just made life easier when you have other things to worry about. Can get vaccines at Walmart- so far that is the cheapest we have found1 approx. $5 cheaper than Walgreens or CVS. I have a few books to sell if anyone is interested- Fundamentals book and the book by Jarvis used for Health Assessment. I am pretty sure they are using a newer version for Health Assessment here at Homestead but many are still using the older book as it is cheaper. Prefer Homestead student to sell to as I know Fundamentals will be using same book I have as I know the professor. Let me know if any Spring Homestead student is interested.
