    I talked to someone in financial aid yesterday and they said it will post at the end of April.

    I talked to someone yesterday too and he said they were beginning the processing yesterday or today.... Who knows what that means other than they just started working on it.... Not sure when it'll be posted. Mine's all wonky anyway because another school has me listed as getting FA from there and he said it would take 1-2 weeks to process that paperwork, then they'd process my FA. Fun stuff.

    Is the welcome meeting a casual affair?
  5. by   Rach2012
    I was an alternate last semester and when I went to the welcome meeting last time some people were dressed very casually, and others were business casual. There's really nothing fancy to it, we just get a rundown of info, meet the professors and have the opportunity to purchase supplies and materials.

    So excited to start the program! See you all tomorrow

    Hi guys and gals,

    I wasn't aware that Blackboard was going to be down beginning Friday, so I didn't have a chance to print off all of the readings. I was wondering if anyone would be willing to share the readings pages for 310, 320, 330, & 394 (at the DT campus). Thanks!

    This is really random, but I am not doing so good in Nursing Concepts 310. The test are so hard for me and I am afraid I'm going to fail the class. Do you have any advice for me on how I can do better in this class? I would really appreciate it! The last test we took, which was exam 2, I got a 72% and the class average was 80% with the highest score of 91% ugh I just don't understand how that test was written, but any tips would be so helpful, because I don't even know what would happen if I didn't pass this course
    thank you!

    Who is teaching your course? (just first name, i dont think we can put full names on here) I would suggest getting an NCLEX study book because they have lots of practice questions that not only help you study but help you get used to the style of nursing test questions, because they offer explanations for the answers. Hang in there, NUR 310 is hard and a lot of people didnt do as well as they'd like, its just a big transition because nursing school tests are so different from any previous classes. The tests arent black and white with one definite correct answer, you have to pick the best answer which is frustrating, but I approach every question with a process of elimination. Usually there are 2 answers that you can quickly throw out and 2 to decide over, with the 2 left you have to really read the question for the clues given or not given. If an answer choice says something about a pregnant woman and the question didnt say anything about pregnancy thats probably not the right answer, even if the information in that answer is correct. That probably sound pretty obvious but you'd be surprised what we can look over. Also, pay attention if they mention an age in the question, it seems to me that our teachers focus on health across the lifespan and how to address people at different stages of life. Lastly, if there's an answer choice that involves therapeutic communication thats the correct answer lol. Hopefully something I've said here will help, and i hope it made sense lol. Good luck on your next test

    The teacher for 310 is -------, thank you soo much, this really really helps and I'm going to try to apply this on my next exam! I need to focus on what the question is REALLY asking and also your right about the "age" of the patient being an important part of the questions as well. As for an NCLEX book, is there one you recommend, especially one that relates to this class?
    Thanks again!

    You're welcome I have the Saunders NCLEX review book:

    I didnt have it during Jr 1 but its definitely been a great help during Jr 2 and Sr1.
