Start with Vital Signs. Know what they are, how to measure them and what the normals are. VS include pulse, blood pressure, temperature, respirations and pulse oximetry. In the big purple Fundamentals book, I believe it is Ch 17. That will be a part of your frontloading along with memorizing and doing several additional skills.
While you are waiting, It is never too early to start studying!
I wish I had known that lol oh well :/ I'm already done with everything I turned my packet in a couple weeks ago and already got all my books and supplies now just waiting...
How is the process coming along for everyone? I turned my packet in on Monday and its good to go! Just picked up my pins yesterday and bought the uniforms from the PBSC bookstore, just a heads up they 50% cheaper if you buy them from the bookstore and they are the EXACT same brand etc. Only thing left are shoes and books! The weeks are flying by!
Did a anyone start a facebook page for this cohort? If so let me know so I could join the group
Does anyone know what kind of math test we will be having the first week of classes and where I can study for this?
Oh gheeze! I've lived in MA so I guess Ill have to pay also. bleh.
Also, I went to order my pins and buy the uniform tops, they came up to $70 for 2 scrub tops so I didn't buy them yet. I think the PBSC bookstore sells them? I ordered the pins though, 19.01 for two
@ Bremac88 Hey Bre!!!! Im happy you got in this time! Conrats Hun!!!!

You all can do it please work together that the key! xoxo Mercedes
Walk in, I did mine yesterday. You have to have cash or check and be there before 4:30
Yea its in our welcome packet
Besides the 2 quizzes I have nothing done! I need to start asap though. Think I'm going to get the flu shot next week and try to get the background check on friday or something. Are there still spots open for CPR class?
In the welcome packet it says to print out two "certificates" of each test. What exactly did you print out? I'm not sure if I'm supposed to print out the summary of attempts or if I am supposed to click on the GRADES button but it shows both tests together (three test options,) I did the one that say June 13- Feb-14; please tell me I did the right one not the Nov 12 to February 14. Anyone know? I don't want to mess anything up ahhhhh lol
I didn't realize that about daylight savings, but I think that the time usually changes around 2am! So I doubt it eekkkk! Ill be on at 12:45pm lol.
Quick question, I just finished the Tenet Orientation and HIPPA Quiz, underneath that it says that we need to bring "Signed and Witnessed Ethical Agreement, and Health Science/ EMS Safety Disciplinary Procedure" do you know where to find it?
Congrats to you both @phdewer84 & @Bremac88! I know im super late but I also got in but in the bell glade program. Ive only completed the 2 quizzes so far. I really don't wanna get the flu shot but I guess I have no choice. Have u guys started on anything yet?
