    You didn't need to be rude about it. Yes, I am a NAIT graduate and no, it wasn't expressly taught that this was within the scope of practice. Might I add, I graduated with a 3.9 GPA and was on the Dean's List both years, so I was paying attention.

    Sorry for my rudeness... it's obvious that the NAIT program is at fault.

    Thanks for the clarification. I appreciate it and I echo your sentiment - I personally think the NAIT program needs to be tweaked a little bit to be at its best.

    Can't tell you how many times I have asked for an expired RX and I get a fax with EXPIRED stamped OVER the RX. Thanks. Now I will call back and have you read it to me. I would much rather get the Rx from the doctor, but sometimes they just don't want to give it to you...
    Have I told you today how much I hate poly?
