    I'm so excited, this is the first real step towards the next chapter in my life and I couldn't be happier about it. I can't wait to get into the lab and start clinicals! I've been doing all the reading recommended to help ease anxiety and make sure I feel prepared on that first day. It's been kind of fun so far putting together all the knowledge we built doing pre-requisites and applying it practically, I like the text so far. You'll all be great, don't spend your energies on worrying and nerves, and apply them to your studies- you'll be fine!

    Does anyone know which books we have to bring on the first day of class? Is it all of them?

    Our first class day is today... or tonight. But I am bringing my iPad with my eBooks. That way, I don't have to lug heavy books around. Not sure if you have a tablet or laptop that you can access eBooks on. Might make it easier. When you add your pageburst code from the Elsevier box, it automatically gives you access to all of your textbooks. It's pretty cool!

    KCrooks13, I tried to get my ebooks, but when I enter my access code it only pulls up pageburst for the clinical calculations. We are supposed to get all the books in the electronic version correct or do I have to pay for the e book? Please help cuz I just lugged all my books to the car this morning. I could not figure out how to download the e-books and tech support was close. I appreciate all you help!

    I am feeling a little stressed about my first class today. I just recently got my books. My instructor told us to read through Chapter 10 in our clinical calculations book, but I only got through Chapter 7. Please tell me that I'm not the only one...

    Are our HCC patches suppose to be sewn 2" below the left shoulder seam on the front or sleeve? I've seen both.

    I think the handbook says on the sleeve.

    The handbook says 2" below the shoulder seam. I'm just not sure what the shoulder seam is. It doesn't specifically say on the sleeve. Just on the shoulder. I'll clarify with my instructor, but so far the consensus is on the sleeve.

    To place patch properly:
    Hold your shirt up by the shoulders, where The top would lay if you were wearing it. (Don't use the seam line as the shoulder line.). Press shirt making a crease in the natural shoulder. On left arm measure 2" down from the horizontal seam where the arm meets the shoulders. Center patch and hold into place with straight pins. Then sew the patch on the sleeve by taking small stitches through the edge of the patch and the fabric. Get as close to the edge as possible and make sure the inside is flat( no wrinkles or bubbles.).

    You can always take it to a dry cleaners and have them sew it for about $5. Hope this helps.
