Hello all, I thought I would start a thread for those of us applying to HCC's Spring 2013 nursing program. I am a Veterinary Technician/stay at home mom. I'm gathering everything for my application and hoping to drop it off at... Read More

    Are there any other places that you guys of heard of that we can take the CPR class. I am hoping that I could find one on a Saturday. Tough juggling 4 kids and this.
    The CPR card we need to end up with with Basic Life Support for Healthcare Professionals (BLS) from the American Heart Association. My wife and I did this course directly through the AHA. This way is typically a little more expensive, but is much more convenient. You take the classroom portion online at onlineaha.org, then you go do a quick skills check (30mins) through a licensed instructor. You end up with the same BLS card that is given to people who attend live classes in person. It cost me $22 for the course, then $20 for the skills check.

    that might be a alternative. I did find In Pulse CPR has a Saturday class 10/6 from 9-1 for $50 in tampa. It's double HCC but I have to balance my husbands work schedule and the kids I want to get it over with so one less thing to worry about.

    Hey, all

    My 38$ check is cashed, but 50$ one- not yet. Looked at scrubs and stethoscopes, Littman lightweight looks very cheap, despite of good reviews, I couldn't hear anything with it. Looks like a toy. Trying to review HESI test, big bore.... Anybody studying anything? Calculations maybe? Does anyone know how much titers cost? I wonder what is the reason they didn,t send us forms for physical and vaccinations?

    I was told that we will get the information at the orientation. I posted a couple of days ago what the prices were for the health dept. I am going to go the route with a new primary dr. and they do they vaccinations in the office and blood draws. I am hoping insurance pays for it all!

    Once I can get the physical, vaccinations and CPR out of the way, I will be starting to review the calculations. Math was never my strong suit and hoping a month or so of review will get me a head for our first test.

    My $38 check was just cashed. At least I know they got the forms now. I'm hoping that my experience in veterinary medicine (mostly critical care/OR) will help me with things like calculations, meds, etc. There are a lot of parallels between human and animal medicine. So I will be concentrating mostly on AP. I had a great instructor and kept all my powerpoints. I will start reviewing those again in November. As far as the HESI what is included in it?

    I wanted to let you guys know that TNC hospital has a class Saturday 10-6 from 10-12:30 pm. Its $40 and shorter than any other I have found. There is a limited number of people that can come so the class is completed in 2.5 hours. Let me know if you want to join me

    It is 42 credit hours at $100.93/credit, so roughly $4239.06. Plus books (roughly $600), uniforms and other supplies/misc fees.

    Wow..that's a lot less than what I was thinking. For some reason I was thinking between $10,000 - $12,000....I was way off!!
