  1. What was it like? There is a good job in my area with the hours I need...but just now sure how the work will be.
  2. Anyone familiar with how much the area hospitals in Birmingham, Al pay for Patient Care Tech, Patient Care Assistant, Patient Access Reps, Unit secretary?

    best deal on steths I found was medisave.net or .com...engrave was free and I got it in like 4 days! I bought the Littman Classic II and I am very pleased. I had never taken a bp or put a steth in my ears before in my life and I got it on the first try!!

    I had my first Hep b on Thursday..heads up, it made me really tired the next day. I am very active (a runner) very unusual for me to come home from work and nap, but I was that wiped out. I have no idea how much the cost was, they are going to bill my insurance for it all, so we will see what happens.

    That is correct, I went to Jefferson County last week. They only have the records IF you had the shots at that facility. I have an appointment tomorrow to start my Hep b series/tetanus and titer...I will post how much it cost at my family practitioner.

    ya know, just not clear on if we need the steth for first sem..I started reading the Health Assessment book and it seems reasonable that we could start practicing with it for some stuff...even just on each other.

    apparently it is hard to get used nursing books because students usually keep them for reference rather than sell them back...so I found best to go ahead and just suck it up and buy new. I STILL have to find time to sit down and list what is in the bundle, it is 2 boxes of books---seems to be a better deal.
  9. Congrats to all--huge class, great to see you all at orientation last Tuesday night! Just wanted to list this information I have found, may be helpful to some. --best deal on stethoscopes I have found is medisave.net (I bought the Littmann Classic II SE) and the engrave for free. --I bought my books yesterday. I bought the "bundle" for $643 in the Jeff State book store. I will tonight, list EVERYTHING that included in the "bundle" and there individual cost so we can see what the actual value of buying the bundle is. If someone already know this, please share because the book store did not even not know what books were in the bundle! --my understanding that you can get your childhood vaccine records from the county you had them in health department (no matter how long it has been). I am calling on that today and will post what i find for Jefferson County.

    You say "Shelby" for part-time....it is my understanding that our classes can be at either campus for the part-time program, is that what you understood? Orientation is at Jeffersosn campus.

    Do you think you will be able to work after the first year...as has been mildly suggested? or is it just too much? That is my major concern with the program, not being able to work.

    finally got back in touch with the lady who called me from JS. She was an adviser on the Jefferson campus. She said they had a "timing issue" and were having to call people to offer them places in the part-time program. She did not say if this was the case for everyone, or just some people---so, you may get a phone call over the next few days...I would be sure your correct number is on file!

    was the call from some lady with a strange name from the "student activities department" or something like that....someone left me a message. I have been trying all morning to call back but have not been able to get anyone. This lady is not my adviser though. The person who got IN the part-time, how many points did you have??? THANKS!!!
