I was actually a student in that program. Definitely a tough program, and it kicked my butt. They will have an orientation in August and they will explain everything and what is expected of you. If you have medical issues that prevents you to not participate in clinical they may have to kick you out. They require you to get a physical exam if you are accepted into the program. They require you to be immune to Hep B and its three series so you might want to get your titer for that now. A lot of chemistry is involved in nursing. Pay attention to anatomy and physiology too. Yes, you have to wear scrubs to clinicals with the school logo. They will go over your uniform expectations during orientation so don't worry. I bought only one textbook for the first semester and two for the second. I also had to buy a stethoscope, penlight, sphygomomanometer (blood pressure cuff), badge, shoes, and the uniform, and that cost roughly $600. We didn't have homework that was graded. They told us to read certain chapters and complete assignments and bring it to class. It was more to reinforce learning. The only thing they graded were tests. They required all black shoes for clinicals. When you get home take of your scrubs and take a shower lol. And no they wont place you in dangerous situations. They are liable. DONT QUIT! I DID AND I REGRET IT. It will get hard. You will cry. But it is worth it. Don't slack off or get comfortable. I aced the first two tests with flying colors, and then I got lazy. When I saw the bad grades I lost all motivation and here I am now trying to get into another program. I really want to cry because I could have been a nurse at 21. Good luck!
(They also have nursing books in the library. Look at them now if you want.)
