- 0Apr 14, '10 by The ProfessionalIt's probably a little bit late for most of you, but UAMS sent out 15 letters on April 8th.

-Check your email often
-Know your APA citation
-It iS possible to get by without books after the first semester. You have ATI books, powerpoints, class notes anyways.
-Take the ATI exams seriously. I know several people who pass the class and then not pass the ATI exam--then they have to remediate the next Summer.
-Don't let instructors intimidate you (Most are wonderful anyway, though!)
-If you don't have one already, now is to time to grow that thick skin
-Watch what you say, anyone can be listening.
-Keep the big picture in mind, it helps during times of frustration

Also if you have children where you need day care make sure you have a very dependable situation with back ups. Missing class/clinicals especially the first summer is not an option.
Good luck and try to enjoy!
