    Hi ladies and gents,

    Just to let you know, the UW Health Sciences Bookstore is having an in-store wide 20% off sales event this Saturday, May 30th, from 12pm-5pm.

    For those (like me) who haven't gotten a scope yet, it should be a pretty good deal. I'm gonna check it out and see if the prices are comparable to those online, and I will ideally be able to use my Alumni 10% off in addition to the 20% sale.

    Let me know if anyone wants to check it out with me!

    Hello folks,
    It was great to meet those of you who got together in ... was that April? Anyway, I have signed up for the CPR course for this coming Tuesday (12-3:30), June 2. Will any of you be there?

    Pre-school checklist from Karla and Rebekah:

    1. Health Packet - Titers, Boosters, Immunization Records ALL have to be turned in no later than the 23rd

    2. CPR - It has to the BLS for Healthcare Providers course, and I sent out the "discounted" price for our cohort

    3. Background Check

    4. And on the health packet picture - It doesn't need to be passport picture, just something clear and not too old.. make sure it still looks like you NOW. hahaha

    5. Attend Orientation - June 17th

    6. Purchase a stethoscope that will allow to hear different heart sounds (ex. some steth's aren't as strong as others, hence you will not be able to hear irregular heart beats with a $1.00 steth...) lol.. Rebekah and I bought a dual lumen steth, since we're going to be working with moms and babies. (Littman Cardiology III)

    7. Textbooks - SU Bookstore price for ALL (around $950.00+) price (I spent $515.00ish)

    8. Scrubs and Lab Coat - Can be purchased at the SU bookstore, but Sabrina said we should hold off until orientation

    9. Maybe start looking for COMFORTABLE shoes [Dansko comes highly recommended for this]

    10. A cheap sphygmamonomemeter.. not too fancy just one that works ...

    11. PDA or Smart Phone

    12. Parking Pass or Bus Pass - Can be bought during the SU orientation (not the SUCON)

    13. A Laptop - Dr. Carr really insists that we have one, especially for Pharm.. we're going to have TONS of notes and to be environment friendly, we should just bring our laptops with us during lectures instead of printing everyday and night for the notes

    14. 8. Summer Qtr Financial Aid Application

    15. Read chapters 1-17 from the Calculate with Confidence book (as suggested by Professor Chase) AND chapters 1-4 from the Pharm book.

    Hi everyone,
    I have applied for APNI gero/adult track in Seattle U. I live in Seattle and waiting impatiently for their response. I know that they will review in Jan. and the interviews will come at Feb. anyone else in the same boat? I have a high GPA and have done all the pre-reqs. Does anyone know how hard is to get in to their program? Any interview tips if I hopefully get one?
