    Does anyone have any information about the boot camp week? I was trying to figure out what times it starts and ends so I can figure out my schedule for that week. I haven't received anything I missed something.

    A good 6 people have yet to register for classes. Is there a deadline for you guys to register? I'm still on the waitlist and they said if a spot becomes available, it wont be until as early August. I'm afraid some people might drop the major last minute as previous year. They cant really get stuents off the waitlist becaue of all the prep that is needed for nursing. Someone told me how they were a class of 97 but 5 students dropped it last minute. I desperately want to get off the waitlist.

    Meg2of4 : did you do anything to get a better chance getting off the waitlist? How did they notify you?

    I don't think anyone has received the information yet, because they haven't finished assigning the schedules yet to the people attending the bootcamp.

    I searched for posts relating to bootcamp week, and they said it was just an orientation and not to worry.

    Hey Sara! Sadly, I did not do anything to get off the waitlist. I just waited and started looking into other options. I wasn't sure and I am kind of stuff unsure how their waitlist works (especially considering you are not given any information about your placement on the list). Anyway, then one day out of the blue I got a call from the Mason asking if I would like to take a spot that had opened up. She didn't give me a reason as to why the spot had opened, she just said there was one available. There was a deadline for paperwork on Monday and the website said that if something was done incorrectly (i.e. you didn't pass the background check, failed the drug test, etc.) then you would be booted from the program. So although that sucks for one person, it may be an opportunity for you. I hope that you get into the program!!! Good luck!

    Hey guys, so today they talked all about what kind of stuff we should bring/wear to our clinicals. I took a list and I heard: penlight, food (and snacks), water, tylenol, stethoscope, really good shoes, small notebook, pens. Did I forget anything? And like are we allowed to bring a backpack to hold our lunch box, keys, and other stuff in?

    On another note- did anyone buy a lab coat to wear when it gets colder? Or like are you just planning on wearing a long sleeve shirt under your scrubs?

    Hey Meg,

    Did I meet you today?
    I think I met Bokkechick (blue dress & we're in the same clinical group!) and Thunderstorm.

    Yes, it's a good idea to carry those things.

    Hospitals will have a designated area for you to put your things in. I actually got an email from my clinical instructor detailing where to put our belongings, and advised us not to bring any valuables. Your clinical instructor should tell you more info about it.

    They also told us to cancel the nurse 425 section and sign up to a different section. Dont forget to do that!

    I'm gonna bite the bullet and make the facebook account now so I can join the chats.

    I remember them telling us to drop 425 and switch it for another, which one was it again? I can't seem to find the info for it. Thanks
