Recommended Posts

Here is an industrious undertaking..  UnityPoint Healthcare has provide a website with details for making a new modular mask, The Olson, named after 1930's legendary maker nurse Lyla Mae Olson.  The Mask was quickly developed by clinicians from UnityPoint Health and is being shared across the globe in the fight against COVID19

St Lukes Hospitals are in short supply of masks.  

UnityPoint Health has provided downloadable patterns, YouTube Videos, and complete instructions on how to Sew, Package and Send completed Masks to the St. Lukes Hospitals.

Completed Masks

  • Enclose completed masks in a closed plastic bag or closed plastic box.
  • We will launder them prior to use so no need to wash before delivering.
  • Please deliver to the St. Luke's Foundation, 855 A Ave. NE,  1st floor, Cedar Rapids. Phone (319) 369-7716.

From what I read lately, it seems if we would all wear a mask, day in and day out we wouldn't catch the virus or spread it.  just saying..  china stopped it completely in 60 days and now every citizen wears a mask, mandatory. They are all back to work and are not accepting people into their country without a quarantine.

     Thank you for correcting the information that was released. I recently took the test for certification with NAAPCC and it was a very comprehensive and thorough test. It was not a simple easy test to get you certified. You had to know the information in order to complete and pass. I would recommend this avenue to anyone especially if finances are a struggle for MEPAP I & II. I did purchase the book for long-term care seventh edition and without that I would have struggled.

    Celeste is awesome!! Anytime i have a question she gets right back with me and she is very informative. At first I didn't know if i was going to like the new course just for the fact my MEPAP course was the own pace and I work Full time plus have 3 kids. But i am loving it! It is very structured and with due dates I feel like i am holding myself more accountable for completed assignments sooner than later. It has actually been a beneficial change for me.. Thanks so much!!!

    Good Evening I wanted to let you know that I had completed mepap 1 and had only a couple weeks left of mepap 2 so I had looked at path 2 and have taken the activities test and passed so just sending in the application. I wanted to thank you for giving all your time to us even while Kathy was ill. It didn't go unnoticed, you was a great support and helpful at ideas or even different ways of changing thoughts to positive while feeling defeated. Thank You Stacey Passa AP-BC
