Does Castle Branch need every address we lived at? I don’t remember the addresses! I only recall the last 10 years or so!

That's what I was wondering too.  I'm not purchasing my package though until I hear back from MJC.  Hopefully they get back to me before the 5th.  I don't want to end up paying for two packages. 

I was just going to put my main childhood address, my current address for the last 12 years.  But I'm going to email the health office and ask just to be safe.

I put in three addresses but it did cover the last 20 years for me.

If you guys look at page 7 of the pdf., it states they need addresses from the last seven years. It’s under the section, “before placing your order”.

@BCAN  you think 1 day of theory is enough?? Seems like you would spend more time on your own learning, it seems like 2 days of lectures will give you more of a guidance of what to study, do you know if people were fine with 1 day theory?

its a loooooong class. We have to do quizzes before class ( you keep taking them over and over till you reach a certain level, so if you know the material you take fewer quizzes bc you get the answers right, if you don't you could be there for hours, so it forces you to read the material) , so you already kinda know the material, and the professor just solidifies whats important. We aren't supposed to show up not knowing anything about the topics.

@BCAN thank you for the information! It was very helpful. 

Has anyone read the student information packet? It seems like we have a lot to purchase out-of-pocket. Any suggestions on where to purchase a decent, but not too expensive stethoscope? Also, any ideas about where to get the appropriate shoes?

The books are like $900 for the first semester. There is no way around it bc you need the codes to take the PrepU tests every week and access videos, skills sheets, etc. I used a lot of my savings to buy them, uniforms, shirts, etc... then you have to pay for Kaplan but you can make payments of $150 X4. 
Shoes: Some of my friends bought "nurse mate" shoes and the white layer is peeling already and they look old. I got the Timberland ones (only like $30 more expensive than the Nurse Mates) and a few of my friends are gonna switch to them because they are so comfortable and still look like new ( and I wipe them with bleach before leaving the floor every clinical day) You will wish you had nice shoes. Seriously.

Thankfully I am a CalWORKS student and they will reimburse me for all expenses for supples!  They are a great program, everyone should look to see if they qualify.

Does anyone know about immunizations and seeing your doctor for physical? Do we have to do titers before we see the doc or is that something the doc orders during the physical?

If you don’t have your shot records then your doctor will have to order your titers first. Then you’ll go back and get the immunizations you need. 

This happened to me last December because I did the CNA program at Delta and it was the same thing. So this time I had my titers already and just did the hepatitis and mmr because oddly I’m immune to measles and mumps but not rubella?? 

Just FYI the hepatitis is a three shot series. Shot one and two are one month apart and shot three is six months later. Mmr is two shots one month apart. But on the form I think they just need to see they are in progress.

I do have proof of my immunizations except for Hep B. I just assumed that they want titers for Varicella and MMR as well as Hep B regardless of vaccine history. 

I also had BCG vaccine in my home country so not sure what I need to do since my TB skin test would show positive even though my blood shows negative... I read in the packet I will have to get a chest X Ray? :(

Has anyone started their titers? The earliest appointment I could get at my doctors office was on June 11th and I’m worried I won’t have enough time to complete everything. Any advice?
