  1. Clinical hours are 5 days a week. I graduated from the class 2012. As for the clinical hours that depends upon your preceptor. Some days were up to 12-14 hours but not less than 8 hours.
  2. Gina Rhonda said that there is some hotels on campus that have rates at 35.00 a day. Not so bad. She said that they will be sending out information on them with our packet in February. I will mail your package on Monday! Might look at sharing, if you guys like. As for the week in May we will be there May 24-29th, per Rhonda. I already started looking at plane tickets and where I am going to stay. My mom works for Doubletree so I am checking on rates for the Doubletree on campus.
  3. Thanks! I was getting worried as well! I was a nervous wreck when the mailman finally came! Must be due to winter in the Rockies. I am excited to meet you both as well!!! Happy New Year! Have you both thought about housing? One of our PA's was in Grand Forks for a locums position and stayed at a nursing home there. He said it was quiet, relatively cheap and could get us the information and we could possibly stay there as well. :)
  4. IM IN....IM IN!!!!CANT Wait to meet you both!!!!! I just got my letter today! I thought the wait would kill me! Congrats to us all!!!!:)
  5. I haven't heard anything. I'm just hoping it takes longer to get to Colorado:eek:! Gina did you just stop by your post office and ask them if there was a certified letter? I might try that since our case schedule is so heavy this week:eek: Congrats Tammie!
  6. Gina/Tammi Spoke with the school the admissions committee met the 16th and 17th. They will be sending out certified letters stating our status:eek:. They seemed to think we should know by the end of the year dependant upon when they got the letters mailed. Finally, the waiting is almost over. Good luck to you both! Hopefully an great christmas present for us!!! Happy Holidays. Sherrie
  7. Good luck to you both! Hope we all have a wonderful holdiay season and will hopefully be celebrating our acceptance!!! I am looking forward to meeting you both in May! PS The wait has been excruciating!!!! I just keep thinking all good things come in time! Sherrie:D
  8. Gina I bet you are breathing a deep breath now! Congrats! I got a card saying that my proctor interviewed last week as well!!!! :eek: He said it went well from his perspective. :rolleyes: My friend just got her interview stuff so they are still interviewing. Hope you both are doing well! Sherrie
  9. Brookspa I also applied this year, in addition to hoping to be a pa. How was the interview process organized. They don't really talk about it on their website. Any information would be great!
  10. That would be great! I am still at work... ugh... call has killed me this weekend! LOL! I hope you had a good weekend. Wow, your kids are young you must be busy! It is nice having a big family. Do you currently work in the lab? What do you do there? I only have contact with our lab as I am the POC for the OR, and blood utilization meetings. Talk with you soon. :p
  11. I would love to get into the program as well. It really fits with our life as well. I have a 17 y/o who is going into the Marine Corps next Dec:confused: , and we have a 13 y/o as well, we didn't want to uproot them. We both work in cardiac surgery and my husband has been working as a CV NP for 18 years, our entire family lives here as well. It was really hard to leave and go to perfusion school in Ohio for 2 years as they stayed here;). I guess you do what you have to to get by. Wow, 4 young children, and 17 credits..... you are wonderwoman! Have you found a preceptor yet? This seems to be the biggest stepping stone! I am contemplating taking Pharm as the last pharm I took was in grad school 10 years ago. Thought it would be a good review, even though I work with drugs on a daily basis (sometimes the chemistry is the hardest part to remember). Glad we have met, have you heard when they make their decisions by? Sherrie
  12. Hey, glad to hear someone else will be on pins and needles. I have a BS in Biology, AS in Chemistry and then went to grad school for Cardiovascular Perfusion. I have worked as a perfusionist for 8 years now. I am refreshing my A&P I called them and since it has been 10 years since an class I am taking this. You do have to submit an essay. I spoke with the school and they did not know when they would start interviewing as it is their first year with CASPA. They were very pleasant when I spoke with them. I live in Colorado, a town that is about 150,000. So somewhat rural. Have you met anyone who has went through the program? I would love to hear their take on the didactic load. I am sure it is pretty tough, they seem to have a pretty strong pass rate on the PANCE. I am applying to the Red Rocks program in Colorado, although I really would like to do the ND program. Good luck to you as well!!!!! Perhaps we could be support along the way!!! :p
  13. I have applied to the UND program for 2012 as well. What is your background? I posted earlier to hear from anyone who came from the program or has applied as well and have not heard back. If you receive any info, I would love to share it between us. Where are you from?
