    I am graduating in December and I have never used a pda and never felt like i missed out. That being said, there are lots of people with them who think they are wonderful. But no it's not necessary.

    For some reason it seems like there is like nobody from SA on this board. I have asked questions before and gotten 0 replies. Best of luck.

    I agree, I'm from San Antonio too!

    Congrats to all of you. You have a long 2 years ahead of you but it is worth it in the end if you find a job you love. I graduate in December and can't wait.

    Anyways, uniform for school of nursing (the generic program) is all white....including shoes. Some instructors have you wear a white button up scub top while others will allow you to wear a regular white scrub top. So, you may not want to buy anything until you know for sure....you probably would not go wrong buying a regular white scrub top however. The only times you don't have to wear white is at Laurel Ridge for psych you will wear hunter green scrubs and for the other psych places i believe it's regular business casual clothes. Also, in your peds clinical you can wear colorful/print scrubs.

    Best of luck to all of you. If you ever have any questions feel free to ask.
