    Is it too late to have an appointment with Paramed in the second week.. I don't have my mask fitting until the 14th. Also is the orientation manitory. I work Mondays and will have to book off that day if it is.

    MARN13N Paramed can do the mask fitting, from what i've read we start placements in the 3rd week and paramed needs to be cleared 2 weeks before, they seem very reasonable the times that I have talked to them, so best advice is talk to them as soon as you can to see what they say.

    I am not sure if the orientation is mandatory, though from what andrea has said they will be giving us our placement details as well as other useful information.

    Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!

    Can anyone who has done first semester, confirm which books you actually HAD to buy? The book list for Health and Healing is a little long...wondering if all the books are ACTUALLY required or not. List says they are. But it just seems like a lot for one course.

    sweetcurves, the only books I bought were the online bundle...which when I started included 3 books (Fundamentals of Nursing, Med-Surg and Physical assessment). The only one I have really used is Fundamentals. It's weird that it lists books for Health and Healing because I only used Fundamentals briefly. I finished with an 86.5% average without really using any books much so they really aren't needed!

    Thanks Andrea! I'm getting so excited/nervous/anxious/excited. Also fingers crossed that my OSAP rolls into my bank account soon. LOL!

    What time is the orientation at IAHS on Monday? Do we have a room yet? I know I saw this information somewhere but now I can't find it. I'm not sure if it was an email or it was on locomotion. Can someone confirm? Thanks.

    8.30-4pm room240 at IAHS,

    I had my paramed appointment today as well as my 2nd HepB jab and all went well so I believe that I am all set for placements. Ordered the 3 books Andrea recommended from amazon for a small saving but its a saving never the less, they say they have been shipped so hopefully i'll get them before term starts. Hope everyone had a good new year and I hope I get to meet some of you on the 7th at 8.30am.
