    alam, where did you order your stethescope from? I think I might just order it through the school if the discount isn't that much off?
    And okay crebs, so the Kaiser stuff i printed off from god know's where isn't the right stuff so i should just disregard it? =]
    ALSO, where is the VA hospital anyway? I live in Rocklin, far far away lol. I'm really bummed i didn't get Roseville Sutter, that would have been so close to me and perfect. =[ I wonder how they choose which sections we get into for clinicals? I guess we shall see!

    Also, I signed up for CNSA, it was $70 for 2 years, is anyone thinking of signing up as well?
    I got it from medisave.net for $76 total including the shipping and free engraving. I just wanted the engraving so I got it there instead of CNSA. I did actually thought about joining and was halfway through the application process when I realized there was a membership fee, so I was like "neh, maybe later after I learn more about it". I submitted the kaiser paper also and it says good until dec 31. You probably got it from Magnus cus that's where I got it. But I guess I have to fill another one out soon

    NicolR have you done the VA paperwork yet? I turned mine in today, but I didn't see any signature page for that overview file. Were you able to find one? I just went ahead and turned in my packet without it.

    Also, if you're trying hard to save money, you don't HAVE to have a littman. There are much cheaper stethoscopes available, and some people claim they're just as good as the littman's. There's stuff on the forums about them.

    I got section 7
    You're luck you'll have your days a little less packed! I'm happy to get Fridays off, but it will be nice for you to not have to cram stuff into 4 days.

    The good thing is the engraving... That's a plus as I've heard people's stethoscopes suddenly grow legs. I've heard of people having to purchase them several times.
    An FYI... engraving will not save your 'scope from being thieved because it's very difficult to see and if anybody's going to swipe it, they won't worry about it. A simple label is generally sufficient in order for it to be returned.

    The key to keeping your 'scope is to keep it with you, engraved or not...

    Thanks for the advice. Do you use a stethoscope hip clip? I've heard it gets annoying having it around your neck all day. I'm interested in the engraving more so that it can get back to me if lost or if there is some sort of confusion as to whose is whose. Do you have any recommendations as far as a label?
