End of Semester Wind Down

HolidayfireplaceHalloween drifted by like a shadow in the hallway. Thanksgiving came and went in a cranberry haze. And in the classrooms of Fountainhead College of Technology, the first semester ground down to a difficult and welcome halt.

Yeah, it's about over. As of this writing, I've got a final exam tonight and a final exam tomorrow night.

I've written before about the disparity between linear time and experiential time; it just doesn't seem like I've been back in school since August. Now the Winter Holidays are upon us and students are about to take a three-week-long break. We need it. We're tired. Information bounces around in our brains like out-of-control bumper cars. Abbreviations, acronyms and chunks of mental pop-up text are screeching around our craniums, throwing sparks. The folks I'm in class with are droopy. Their shoulders slump forward and their brows furrow with intensity.

We're ready to wind down.


Free Raffle from Club Med

StockingClub Med would like to thank all of the students, faculty, and staff here at Fountainhead College for your support and donations this semester for our bake sales and our toy collection drive.

We were able to donate lots of great toys to Toys for Tots, Mission of Hope, and also help a needy family in providing Christmas gifts for children who otherwise would not have received anything. To show our appreciation for your generosity, the Club is holding a free raffle on Tuesday, December 13. Two great prizes will be raffled in the morning classes and two in the evening classes.

Please stop by Room 1 and pick up a FREE raffle ticket to win a teddy bear or Christmas stockings full of candy, school supplies, toys, and other goodies.

Club Med supports the TN Children's Hospital for Christmas – and they will pick up tickets in the break room during the morning break.

Happy Holidays to all!

Medic Blood Drive

Fountainhead College will host a Medic Blood Drive on Thursday, November 10, from 10:00 to 5:00 in the Fountainhead Auditorium.

Giving blood supports the well-being of our community and provides a safe and economical blood supply for people in need. Giving blood takes only 15 minutes and helps those in need. Giving one donation a year also exempts you and your dependents from paying blood processing fees if you need a blood transfusion.

Time slots are available from 10:30 – 4:45 pm. Call now or drop by Fountainhead College's lobby to sign up.


HIM Students Pass CPC Exam

AAPC_copyI want to send out a big congratulations to two of our students, Amanda Tinch and Kayla Churchman, both of whom are current Health Information Management students. Amanda and Kayla passed their CPC (Certified Professional Coder) examination given through the American Academy of Professional Coders.

They are the first two students from Fountainhead College to take the exam and earn the CPC credential. Way to go, ladies! All of your hard work and studying have paid off. We are very proud of you both!

What am I doing?

Jeffrey-Martin-croppedHere's an interesting new tactile experience:

I'm wearing scrubs. I've never worn scrubs before. I never had a reason to. I do now, though, because we have to wear them to class. Scrubs feel weird. They feel like the clothes you put on while you're waiting to put on other clothes. They're not so much articles of clothing; they're more like slipcovers for your body.

Let's review.

Regular readers know I'm a real student here at Fountainhead (all the cool kids call it FCT), but let's talk about my program for a little minute.
