Thanks! That was really helpful. Just one more question, about how many days a week are we at lecture/lab/clinicals in total? Is it like M-F 8-5? :)

Any information would be awesome!

I imagine they'll keep the same schedules for next semester:

Tuesday: 7:30-10:10 Pathophysiology

Tuesday: 10:20-12:10 Client Assessment

Thursday: 7:30-10:10 Fundamentals

Thursday 10:20-11:10 Informatics

Then you choose when your labs/clinicals are. My clinicals are Mondays from 7:00-2:00, and you have to go in the day before to choose a patient and then do paperwork. My Client Assessment lab is Tuesday afternoon from 1:00-6:50 pm.

This is the only semester when you're able to choose your own clinicals. They choose for you the rest of the time.

You're very welcome. :)

Several of my classmates have one or more children, and although it's tough, they are making it through. I admire and applaud the parents who are working so hard for this. I'm sure you'll find many classmates who also have children, and that is a strong bonding point.

I'm so excited for you, and hope we are able to meet during your orientation or afterwards!

Hello Coriander!! I have been reading your posts to other members and found them really helpful which you were to my questions in the beginning of this current semester because I wasn't accepted but wanted to know the point cut off. (I don't know if you remember me?) But I also got accepted for Fall!!! So I am really excited but also really nervous! But more of an excited nervous lol I just had a random question for you though...ever since I started going to school at State (which was Fall 06) I saw nursing students with the black and red tote bags...how do you happen to go about getting one of those? and when would they be offered to the students? I guess now it would be a symbol of my accomplishment of finally getting in on my fourth attempt! Any info would be great!!! Thank you again! :yeah:

Hi Sweet_Shay!! Of course I remember you :) Congratulations!!!

The bags are $27 through SDSU CNSA (California Nursing Student Association). I bought one for the same reason you want one... a symbol of accomplishment. It's also a great bag, and I use it all the time!

They sell everything when you all go in for orientation, but if you wanted one before that I don't think it would be a problem. Again, I'll send you a PM with their office hours, etc.

Cheers!

Has anyone started signing any papers or doing anything? Or do we wait for them to post the compliance dates?

Also, is anyone CPR certified yet? I'm not!

If you can get your CPR certification done, that's one less thing. Just make sure it's the BLS Healthcare Provider certification.

Compliance information should be available to you soon. If you go ahead and get your vaccinations and physical done ahead of time with your own doctor, that's good because the lines at the student health center get ridiculous. If you need to wait to see someone at the health center, be sure to make an appointment. :)

I'm not sure how they're going to work things next semester for you, but we had to wait on some of our paperwork until everything else was cleared by the nursing school.

If you find yourself wanting to do more, start practicing drug calculations. There is a mandatory drug calc quiz that you have three opportunities to pass.

Practice drug calculations? How exactly do we do that? I want to be prepared :) And thank you for all of the great information you are giving us Coriander!

They told us in the acceptance email that we need to start getting our background check completed before August, so hopefully they put up the information soon for New Students bcuz I'm really excited to start the process!

Also for the physical examination...I went last November to my doctor for a physical so should I schedule another one before Fall begins or will they accept that and will just need to get verification from my doctor?

One of the textbooks that is required is a drug calc "lab manual" kind of thing. There are assignments to do, and lots of good practice.

A good website (among thousands of good sites) is http://www.testandcalc.com/quiz/index.asp There is a "help" feature which shows you how to get through some problems. If you do a web search on "drug calculations" you should find many more.

On the SDSU Nursing website, on the right, there is Compliance information. Again, I don't know if anything will be changed with that information, but you can get an idea of what's going to be needed. As the Fall semester draws near, they will be communicating with you on exactly what you need to do, and in what order it needs to be done. There is a lot of paperwork, so I would suggest getting a small filing box or binder to keep all your nursing paperwork in.

I don't remember the time limits for physicals, but try to make sure your immunizations are all up to date. That's all under the Compliance section on the website. That way you don't have to sit and wait to get your shots at the health center. If you have your doctor perform your physical, you will need to have them fill out the physical verification form that's also in the Compliance section. You may want to call the nursing department and ask them if the November physical would be accepted. I don't see why it wouldn't be, but that's just my opinion. LOL

Hi, Michellegg84

I have been admitted to SDSU for fall semester too. Are you going to attend the orientation for transferred students?
