    The church parking is good but you cant walk across the ramp unless you have an I.D. There are usually a few sopts on Perdido and Gravier and there is Two hour parking right in front of Charity on Claiborne. I went to the session on Tuesday and they just gave us all of the paperwork and records that we would have to turn in. There are quite a few fees totaling about 200.00 that you will have to pay. All LSBN paperwork will need to be turned in by April 27, and all health records are due by May 14. You will also need to make an appt to meet with your conseluer ASAP. They also explain that you will need to provide your own Professional Liablibity Insurance (Malpractice) as well as have health insurance coverage of your own. They will explain Uniforms, supplies, etc. School starts on Aug 20 and we have two madatory orientation days in July that if you do not attend you will be KICKED from the program! Im sur yall will get all the info when you come here today but hopefully this is a small glimpse of what top expect!

    For anyone needing them, AKI Services does digital fingerprints which I hear the LSBN has less trouble with. I was told that sometimes the ink prints are harder to process and are sent back to have re-done. I called and they charge $15 per set plus taxes.

    I've called St Tammany PSO, New Orleans East, Hammond, and Chalmette, and the only one that does the digital is Chalemtte. $20 for both sets. This is just in case anyone doesn't feel like going downtown.
    For the Northshore people: On the STPH website, that have a CPR class lised for 6/2, and I know we need it earlier than that so I called, and the lady in the education dept said that we can take he first part of the class online and go back and do a skills check-off on the dates they have available with the next one being on 4/25. Just go to the education dept to sign up, and pay the fee.
    I also had my advising session today with my advisor, and she said to definitely buy "The Fundamentals Success" book, and study it over the summer, and not wait to read it while we are trying to sudy in he Fall. She said it really helps with test taking skills and critical thinking.

    I used these guys for Health Care Provider CPR last summer before I started Charity last fall:

    CPR Health & Safety,LLC - Home

    They usually are running classes every week in New Orleans and Slidell.

    Phi- I felt completely overwhelmed by the Amt of stuff we have to do. Walgreens take care clinic is running a special- $39 for a physical plus $15 form fee so they can fill out the forms.

    Well, even though I was on a "stand-by list" for the fall semester, I still had to attend to all mandatory meeting and have all the paper work ready so that I'd be ready for entrance when a space became available. So, I'm actually already working on everything! The only difference is that now I can register for classes on May 29th.
