Lisa,

According to the resources I have, it's fine to put complete sentences
(including end punctuation) with bullets, but all the sources recommend
using bullets for non-sequential items. If you are giving instructions in
order, it may be better to number or letter them to indicate the sequence.

Hope this helps.
