    Hi sweetcurves, stop take a deep breath and relax. I'm due to get my 2nd hepB shot janurary 2nd and i'm trying to arrange a parmed appointment as soon after that as possible. Andrea and starfish have made posts (1 or 2 pages back) on which they recommend which books to get remember that even if you don't get everything done by christmas you still have time afterwards. Placements start week 3 but paramed needs done 2 weeks before so you still have the first week of classes in which to tie up the loose ends.

    Sweetcurves, yes I'm in your block. Looking forward to meeting you at orientation. Just a note on books, I was at the mcmaster book store and even though the system says they have it in stock, they don't. Lady said they will come in early January. She also said if you buy any books now you can't return them, but if you buy them in January you have a few weeks to return them. She said just in case you decide to drop out of he program. I told her: like that is going to happen!! Anyways, I guess it's a good idea to wait in case we find the book not helpful or something.

    Picked up my police check today and went up to Mohawk and got my student card. Now I'm just trying to figure out if I can start using it to take the bus or not. The HSR sticker on it just says "Expires April 20, 2013". I should test this theory when going to work tomorrow.

    I found somewhere that I can do my CPR next week so as long as the class doesn't get cancelled, I should be all ready to schedule a paramed appointment for the first week of January.

    After spending some time at the Fennell Campus today, I am so glad we aren't attending classes there. I feel so old!

    Good Morning everyone!

    Do I wait for my Paramed appointment in January to do my mask fitting? I called a few of the places recommended on mohawks site but they are either closed for the holidays or not booking until january.

    I was also told by paramed to do my mask fitting when I come in for my appointment.

    Is there anyone here who bought the bundle e-books that I could have a look at? Or maybe knows someone who does that wouldn't mind me having a look. I can come to meet you if you are not too far from McMaster campus. I would really appreciate as it would help me enourmousy to make my decision of either buying the e-books or the hard copies. I like hard copies much better, but the books are huge and heavy. Would we be needing to bring them to class everyday or is it more just a reference thing for at home? By being able to see for myself how the e-books work and what they are like, would make it much easier for me to decide which one is best for me.

    So my bloodwork says inconclusive for immunity to measles, mumps, rubella. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrreat. I just had a booster last year. What to do, what to do.

    Has everyone done their CPR already? I'm going to the Red Cross to do it on the 27th.

    Hi magal, not bought any of the books yet so i'm afraid i'm no help there.
    Sweetcurves I had a similar issue with my Hep.B and i had to start from scratch again because I didnt have any proof of having it in the UK even though there was 8.98 in my bloods (it needed to be over 10) not sure if paramed will take the fact you had a booster last year or if they will require you to have another one. I would phone them up to find out, we get the first meeting with them for free after that they charge to try and make sure you have everything in place for that first meeting.
    I did the HP CPR course with the red cross here in Cambridge and the first 3 hours was very generic first aid when it was lunch time I was the only one doing the HP CPR course so I did that one on one with the instructor. Even though it was an hour it was very fast and the multiple choice questions at the end weren't too hard.

    I've book my paramed appointment for 2nd of jan, i have my Hep.B 2nd injection booked at my doctors for that morning if all goes well i'll be all set by then.

    I think ParaMed is now closed until Jan 2? I should have made an appointment...dang it!
    HepB took me 3 tries to meet the standard for "immune" in bloodwork.

    I am going to RPN prgram at Mohawk College starting in January. I was just wondering which textbook is for which class. So I could go prepared..
  13. by   relaxingbath
    Hi marn13n the list of books for each class can be found on just log in

    and go to the "student academics" at the top left

    there is a link to my courses, this takes you to the page that lists each course

    from there click "course outlines" choose "post secondary winter 2013" and click submit

    Select the course ID you want to find out about for instance "NRSG 10062" and click submit again

    This page gives you the course outline and a list of require and recommended textbooks, and a breakdown on how the course is assessed.

    Andrea and starfish have made posts a few pages back on which books they got when they started September and last year which you might find an interesting read, hope this is of some help.
