I got a call yesterday saying a spot has opened up and they offered it to me! I’m so overwhelmed and grateful! So happy to be joining y’all!

That's awesome! Congrats! Isn't it the best feeling in the world!  I can't wait for the program to start. Only 7 more months. So what did you do for your patient care hours?

It is! I’m so thankful.
I was an EMT and worked as a Critical Care Tech in the ER! What about you?

That's freaking awesome! I was thinking about doing that, but a few other opportunities came up. I worked as an Advance EMT and as a Center Medical Specialists at a plasma center. Our doctor came in about once a week but otherwise I ran most of the medical side there. 

I would have loved to be a Critical Care Tech. I originally had a job offering at CHI Bergan Mercy  a few months ago when I moved to Omaha, but they didn't really care that I was an A-EMT and they were only going to have me practice as a basic.  I have always wondered, is there a difference between and emergency room tech vs a critical care tech? Also, Where were/are you a Critical Care tech at?

They didn’t even care that I had an EMT license. I worked alongside student nurses. Apparently critical care tech has more freedom than ER tech. They actually trained me in phlebotomy as well, so I did a lot of the lab draws there. I loved it.
I was at CHI Lakeside!

I got accepted as well! For those of you attending Union in the fall, where are you taking your CPR class? I want to make sure I take the right one and was wondering if anyone had suggestions! 

 

Thanks!!

I had the same question. I am living in Kearney right now and am not sure where to take the class at.

We can book with these guys here in Omaha. It looks like it has a class size of 8.  The Price is $65 for the class  and  $14 for the book. it would be sweet for us all to attend the same one.

I agree! That'd be awesome. However, I would have to do it over my spring break or on a weekend as I have class Monday-Friday.

We could do Saturday, March 7, 2020 at 9:00 AM. But they only have 4 spots open.  

If there are more people interested in taking the class all together I can call this company  and schedule our own time.   

 http://www.vitalinstruction.com/bls-pricing-signup.php and set up a time. 

1-12 people  will cost us -55 dollars each

13+ we have to call for a quote

Would anyone want to do one in Lincoln? 

  

I am totally okay with making it work with people down in Lincoln. I talked to the instructor and he is available March 7th  at 8 AM. He also  said not to worry about renewals vs initial. He will make a hybrid class to meet everyone's needs.  What do you guys think?

I would prefer Lincoln just because it is a closer drive for me and March 7th would be perfect!

Sounds good,  A lot of people are wanting to do it down in Lincoln, so we will plan for that.

Also, We started a group on GroupMe for the class.  Here is the link for that

You're invited to my new group 'Union College PA Class of 2023' on GroupMe. Click here to join: https://groupme.com/join_group/57355763/xleopQt9
