    I was told during orientation that we don't need scrubs yet.

    The scrub tops are orange with blue trim and the pants are navy blue. Make sure you have a watch with a second hand.... I'm not sure if they told you but you need a blood pressure cuff along with your stethescope and make sure you buy one of those clips to put your ID card in. If you need any more info just ask... I'm in the class just above you guys

    does anyone know anything about the varicella vaccine? What if you had the chickenpox as a child. If now record, how do you prove you had them? Does Cy Fair require the vaccine to be administered? I know some colleges only need a letter from you stating that you had them.
    thanks
    I know this is awhile after the original post but from what I understand about the chicken pox vaccine if you had it when you were younger you have to have a titer done.

    And are there any other supplies we will need besides the books and scrubs?
    You'll need the patches as well, take the coupon you received at registration to the bookstore and you can get them there.

    Luckymama21 - are you registured yet?
    NO! I guess Nursing admin felt like sending that email after all the pestering I've been doing. I will complete my physical this Friday and with that I should be all set, plan to visit with the Nursing admin next Tuesday to make sure I get registered... Books are starting to arrive from Amazon

    Thanks, already got the titer. My vaccine records were submitted a while back, before orientation, I'm all set.

    A titer was required for chicken pox if you have no record of the illness, at least for our class

    Do you have any suggestions on what kind of blood pressure cuff? What are the clips for the ID card? Are they in the bookstore?

    That's a relief! I don't want to have to buy them from the bookstore if I can get them somewhere else cheaper.

    I am also starting the ADN program at cy-fair in fall 2009.

    Will you be in the morning block or afternoon block?

    You have to get just the standard manual blood pressure cuff, doesn't matter what color its your choice, scrubs ect. has tons of them they're about 17.00 (I think) stethascopes are expensive get a good one you'll use it and have it forever..... the clips attach your ID card to your uniform again scrubs ect has them about $4

    I just called back the bookstore to confirm the color of scrub bottoms we will be wearing and it appears that they don't have a clue. Im hoping this means the lady earlier was wrong and that they are sticking with blue pants because orange... well, that's just not funny!! Besides, it doesn't make sense for them to change it so I think it's safe to say they're blue.
