    Hi Marionette,

    For what it's worth, I also received a different model of stethoscope that is one-sided for Christmas. As far as I can tell from the instructions, you can use it to hear both higher and lower frequencies depending on how firmly you press on the chestpiece. I am not sure what this means yet, but I think it will give us the same functions as a two-sided stethoscope. At least I hope!

    Speaking of stethoscope gifts from Santa, does anyone know from experience the difference between the Littman Master Classic II and the Classic II SE? I know the Classic II SE is recommended on the list but I just received for xmas a Master Classic that is engraved, and therefore not returnable. Apparently it is the higher quality one, but I am a little intimidated that the master being one-sided is harder to learn from. Any input would be appreciated!

    A few of us have been wondering what dress code is for orientation. Someone has already been nice enough to send an email to find out, but we haven't heard yet.

    Anyone heard anything? How about those who attended previous terms?

    Thanks!

    I got my seasonal flu vaccine back in September from Vons in Scripps Ranch. I believe it was $25 or $30. If you can't find the seasonal flu vaccine at a public health clinic you may want to check that out because it still may be less than a doctor's visit.
    FYI for those who still need seasonal flu vac. Some County of SD health centers are running out of the seasonal flu vaccine. I know the El cajon location currently has it. It's only $10.

    For those who attended the informational session of the SDSU ABSN program, may I please have an update on their prerequisite list? I checked their website but couldn't find any available info regarding this matter. Thank you so much!!!

    If any recent grads are watching the forum, does anyone have an extra sleeve patch? I bought new scrubs top for this semester and need a patch. BTW for those of you with stethescope questions, any type will work. You will mostly be listening to lung sounds, bowel sounds, and heart sounds.

    I wouldn't worry too much on the stethoscope. I'm fourth semester and I had a cheap steth. Differentiating heart sounds takes years of practice. I was happy to hear murmurs! Basically when your nurse tells you that your patient has an abnormal heart sound, take a good listen. The babies are really interesting so look forward to that. Good luck to you all

    Have you tried calling Ace? I believe they sell the patches for $2 or so. I just bought an extra set of scrubs there last night and they already had patches on them. However, I remember at open house some of the scrubs did not have patches and they just advised students to go over there and buy some.

    Do you still need sleeve patch? I have one from the lab coat we bought but never used. If you can PM me go ahead. If not we can make other arrangements. Let me know.

    here's what i found out about the new sdsu absn program

    here's more information http://nursing.sdsu.edu/miscfiles/ac...ted-120709.pdf although they are calling it an online program in the letter, when i called to schedule an appointment they mentioned that they have 2 locations. one is in san diego and the other in glendale. i'm going on 2/3/10 at 12pm for the info session in glendale.

    i asked about the o-chem requirement and was told that there is an online course that they are allowing in place of it that advisors can recommend since o-chem is so impacted in many schools.

    thanks for informing us more on that, sugarlips (lolz i love your nickname). can you post more info about all the prereqs and the cost of the program after you attend the info session? thanks again.

    Will do. Stay tuned. I think I'll start another discussion instead of keeping it in the Oklahoma post.
