Here’s something I’ve heard said of being a nurse: “Where else can you experience the thrill of having total strangers poop in front of you like it’s totally your business?” (Anonymous)

Sometimes it’s hard to make it to a conference that we really want to attend because we just can’t pull together the financial resources. With HAPS travel awards, that just got a lot easier!

Go to theAPprofessor.org/haps NOW (yes, I”m shouting) so that you can pull your application together in plenty of time for the January 3 deadline!

Preview Episodes

2.5 minutes

If you’re not listening to the preview episodes that precede each full episode (like this one), you’re missing out on a lot!

Each preview usually has these features:

  • Synopsis of topics coming up in the full episode
  • Word Dissection: segment dissecting terminology that’ll be used in (or relates to) the full episode, just like we do for our own A&P students —to get us ready to fully experience the full episode.
  • The A&P Professor Book Club: recommendations from Kevin (and from listeners like you) regarding books of interest to A&P teachers

But wait! There’s more! Sometimes. Like in the preview episode for this full episode, there’s a segment all about the features of the free TAPP app and Kevin plays a clip from a recent audio/video review of this podcast by podcasting experts.

Syllabus Warnings

16.5 minutes

Kevin usually has a Warnings! page in his syllabus or other course documents. It contains three warnings about, and rationale explaining, some important things a student should know before continuing in the A&P course. There is shouting involved.
