Come to find out the reason behind the February 2nd deadline was because the store places the order every other week and that would allow enough time to place orders and receive them, and then have our patches sewn on all before we start our clinicals March 11th. If I'd have been comfortable in knowing what size I actually needed I would have gone ahead and ordered the stuff online, but was so unsure I decided it was in my best interest to just tke the road trip. As it is they should arrive on my doorstep sometime at the end of this month.
I've also placed an order for my shoes. I did that just a few minutes ago from here at home. I'd already tried them on, and after exhausting hours searching for a perfect pair, decided upon Grasshopper's Stretch Plus Sneaker, shown here
They are incredibly comfortable. It feels like you're stepping on pillows, and in a way you are since they are padded that well. I wanted to find a certain pair of New Balance shoes that came highly reviewed but wasn't able to find them in stores.
Our pants taper down the calf somewhat and I think these more slimlined shoes will look better. Do the people who picked these ugly pants out not understand that they are not flattering to anyone!? Let alone those of us who already hippy???
I'd mentioned that there was a rumor going around that our program is under the proverbial microscope. Come to find out it is a fact.
A classmate encountered a graduate from our program, from this past year, and this person told her of the 20 who took the NCLEX only 4 passed. Lovely. So yes, I will definitely be applying for a transfer. If for some reason I do not get to transfer I will invest in a NCLEX prep class!
Would someone like to take Murphy off my hands for a while!?
