    Currently, I air dry my scrubs because even low on our apartment supplied dryer is really hot. I might try machine drying when we move in a few months and I get my good dryer back.

  2. Looking for a long lasting watch
    I have a Citizen Eco-Drive - it uses natural light to charge the battery so you don't have to worry about it dying, especially mid-shift. This is the one that I bought as a birthday present:...

    Our program requires it for FNP, PNP, and maybe adult primary. We have a great supplier that will be on campus next week with them and perks for buying them in person (on top of the $100 less they...

  4. Books
    I got a great deal directly from the publisher (30% off & free shipping) for a book that's all of 2 weeks old because it wasn't available in time through Amazon or the school bookstore for the start...

  5. Ohio Health and OSU
    Can you elaborate on how OSUs Grad Entry students are 'scary' - is it unsafe scary or mean teacher scary? Maybe the current cohorts (one is finishing pre-licensure and the other has just begun...

  8. Lessons Learned During Our First Semester Of Clinicals
    I believe in #16 and #19. #16 is why I'm focusing on the pediatric patient population (hopefully) and #19 because any of my classmates can come and ask me, "is 1+1 still 2?" because some days you...

  9. Ohio Health and OSU
    Check campusparc.com for OSU parking prices. Anything with a garage option is going to be expensive and the cheapest option is WCX (Buckeye lot) where you hop on the bus and it takes you the hospital.

  12. Postpartum Hemorrhage tool kit
    I just began my OB rotation and during our floor orientation the PPH cart was pointed out to us. It was just that - a cart in the hallway. We haven't delved into post partum yet, but once I learn...

  22. Where do you all get textbooks from
    Another vote for Amazon. I usually end up ordering from one of the resellers for additional savings with the same, if not speedier shipping. I'm renting one book this semester for a class that we...
