    Ok ladies, I need some advice. Has anyone out there had to deal with Kanora much up at ECC? I'm having a very frustrating issue with her, and I don't even start classes until Tuesday. Would she be a bad one to piss off? I submitted a request for waiver on the A & P II (mine is 11 years old) back November 29. I'm requesting a waiver because I'm teaching the Saturday section of it at Brookhaven this semester. It seems stupid to me to take the class while I'm teaching it. She has never gotten back to me, I've e-mailed and called, and never gotten a response. I went up there Dec. 19, and she said she didn't have it back yet. So, I was up there today checking the schedule and stopped in and asked and she got all huffy with me and looked at me incredibly rudely and said, "I have your stuff, I told you I'd call you when I got it back and I just haven't had a chance to drop it off to the dean yet." I was so shocked, all I could say was that I need to know whether to register for the class or not and since school was starting Tuesday, that I was trying to get it done quickly. She wouldn't say anything else and just stared at me. I really wanted to go off. Any advice as to how influential she is in the program???:smiley_ab

    One more question...What do you guys wear to skill lab? I'm reading the handbook and thinking it must be sorely outdated. It talks about wearing white dresses and hose to clinical for women???? Wow. Anyways, is there any guidelines about acceptable attire in skills lab?

    WHAT??????? WHITE HOSE AND DRESSES????


    What did you get ahold of??????


    Maybe you have the old uniform one. To skills lab, I wear either jeans, or scrubs...not my actual uniform, though. I love scrubs, so I'd rather wear scrubs than jeans to skills lab. (Makes it more realistic anyway.) ha

    Sorry, I can't help with Kenora. Try to call other administrators at ECC, too. By the way, I think it's very cool that you are teaching A&P. :spin:

    In skills lab we would wear confortable street clothes or any scrubs. I guess it's also depends on what your skills instructor wants.

    Hey Katie,

    I started teaching it last semester, just for some extra money. I've really enjoyed it and would love to continue teaching, even after getting my RN. It also keeps me really fresh. Last semester I taught SCIT 1407, but this semester I'm teaching 1408. I don't think Kanora was trying to be rude or hateful, but she just wouldn't say anything else, and I don't see how someone could just not think it's important enough to at least present to the Dean. Have a great night.

    I feel so behind.... I haven't done anything all week related to school!!! I took my transcript to ECC yesterday and finally got registered. My instructor posted an outline, so if you guys want it, I will email to y'all. I know I'm going to have to brush up on my A&P for the cardiac stuff! There's alot of resources on ecampus this time...

    Did you guys buy the Iggy book? I thought the tests are coming from Lewis?

    Yes, I did.
    From what I heard the lecture tests are coming from the Iggy book. Also, the syllabus shows the Iggy book as our med-surg book and not the Lewis book.
    Brie, Allison, have you heard anything from 4th semster students?

    I am really upset about that because THR isn't giving us the Iggy book, only the incoming students get it. I just don't think it's fair if that's where the tests are coming from. How much is that book? Do you think it's better than Lewis?

    I talked to Mrs. Elhert at ECC yesterday and she said that 3rd isn't that bad and most people have difficulty in 2nd. I sent my friend in 4th semester an email today to get some dirt. I'll let y'all know..

    From what I have heard, true or not, the 3rd semester students at NLC got tested from Iggy and Lewis.


    Fair? Nope.



    I guess you can log onto evolve and sign up for the Iggy resources and Lewis resources in order to answer Iggy and Lewis questions.



    Good luck!

    I have the Iggy book and like it better than the Lewis book. When I updated my Evolve CDs 2nd semester, I gained access to med-surg from Iggy, Swearingen and Lewis. I use all 3.
