    Carlos, you're on the ball! Where is our health dept. anyway? I'm fairly new to Hancock Cty and I've never been---is it downtown? I have to fax my high school records to my doc to find out which ones I still need and then maybe I'll just get them at the health dept instead of at the doc.

    I think I have to get them all based on the limited records I have. I was told the Health Department is in Greenfield near the courthouse on American Legion Plaza.

    Love the violin dude!

    Nah, it's about my son's music class on Fridays after school.

    I went into the bookstore just to look at scrubs today. They don't have an area to try them on. The girl said they accept returns if you take them home and they don't fit. I didn't buy any yet though. I asked about the little clip thingy that they said at the orientation had to be green (for holding the ID card). The bookstore doesn't have any yet (just have plain white ones right now) but they are expecting an order of them to come in before classes start.
    I went to look today as well Chris. I had to get my pee test papers and just to look again.

    Got first round of Hep B, first round of MMR, and first round of TB test. Ouch. If you cant tell, I have no records of my immunizations as a child. Health Department doesnt want to give me the Chicken Pox shot since I had it as a child, but have no record. They said it was $90 and they dont want to waste the shot. I have to find a way to get the titer.

    The Health Dept. is located on the 1st Street to the East of the old courthouse, American Legion Pl. It is in the new courthouse annex in room 150.

    Thanks a bunch, I wondered how that worked!

    Everything has been free since I am going to nursing school except for the TB test, which is $10. Just tell them you want to use the program from the State of Indiana for the free immunizations. The Hep B is $30 a shot if you don't.

    What? There's a program for free shots if you are a nursing student?

    When I looked at Hamilton county's health dept. webpage, it said immunizations are for children up to age 18. So I don't even know if I could get them there.

    Yep. I got my HepB and MMR today for free and paid $10 for my TB. I will get the rest for free as well. I just told them I heard there was a program to provide nursing students with free immunizations and they said they could hook me up on the shots and I would just pay for the TB.

    Wow, Carlos! That's a pretty sweet deal! I'll have to keep it in mind if I need to get all of that crap done. I figured that's where the health dept. was, but I wasn't sure. It's definitely not "down the street" but I guess it's not so bad. I get my TB test and flu shot for free at my husband's work (he manages a nursing agency), but I'd have to get the rest someplace else (sounds like the health dept will be the "big winner" since it's free! haha!)

    I'm wondering if I could buy the scrub pants at the bookstore and take them with me to some other scrub places to try on scrub pants in matching colors but different styles. I know we can't do cargos, slit-ankle pants, etc. but I am 5-feet tall and really don't want to hem my scrubs! lol! I'd like to be able to buy some that actually fit and maybe have a little bit of a bootcut let or something. Not that it's fashion-on-parade, of course, but if you're going to wear an outfit for 3+ days a week, you might as well feel good in it, right? As long as the leg style and length are the only difference, I got the impression that the nursing chairs/teachers really don't care. I'll just have to see what's out there, I guess.
