Hey everyone,

Does anyone know if the CPR class offered at Truman is the correct CPR class?

Yes, it is. It is the "AHA CPR for Healthcare Providers". I took this class last year.

I have to cancel my CPR class at MXC on June 30th because of the deadline requirements. I am planning on taking that CPR class on Peterson as well. As far as the background check, I emailed them and they stated that if you completed one prior to completing your application, you do not need to do another one.

Has anyone heard any new info on where to do the drug screening? I haven't received a response to my email from last week.

were you guys able to switch hours? I called Truman and I was told to email Vanisha harris because they don't know how to switch from days to evenings.

I tried to email Vanisha to see if I can get any more information, since they haven't sent us another email. If I find out anything I'll let you know - I'm planning to make an appointment with my regular doctor for the dug test and titration to try to get it done by the deadline (although I doubt that's a firm date -- the application we submitted said we needed our healthcare stuff turned in by July, not June) and will just do that if I don't hear anything further.

Hi everyone starting nursing program at Truman in fall 2012 and congratulations on acceptance. I am new to this site, but I enjoy reading all your posts.

The 10 panel urine drug screen can be done in any hospital. I paid $50 and it usually takes 1 day to get the results.

The CPR classes will be also at Wright College on June 12 and that's $60.

Does anyone knows, if Truman helps to get the health insurance that we need for clinicals?

Thank you for any response.

I don't have insurance so I'm kind of losing my mind here.

When I called about the additional background check, I was told that we do have to do another one. As usual, depending on with whom you speak, the answers differ!

I went to RUSH to get the physical and titers done. They said that they don't even do a 10-panel drug screen and that it has to be sent out. Normally they do 5- or 8-panel.

Also, the form that the doctor had to fill out where they have to list if systems are normal included a urinogenital/rectal line. Do they seriously want the doctor to do a rectal exam? What have you guys done? Same question for hearing and vision.

These requirements seem like they are all over place with no indication of what is to be expected about certain things.

Ugh. I hope the CPR class that I'm doing in Evanston is acceptable. It says it's for Healthcare Professionals so I hope it's fine!

I don't see why we would need another back ground check! This is absurd, I thought they were suppose to send us more info...
