I started this semester and it has been one hell of a roller coaster ride.
The clinicals have got to be the best learning experience for me because you get to experience RL situations that you only learn from experience.
The classes are okay. I would recommend reading the health assessment materials as soon as you can get your hands on the textbooks.
There's A LOT of reading, so get started as soon as possible.
Pharmacology is a butt kicker but fun at the same time. LOTS and LOTS of drugs to memorize.
Most of us who stated this semester are barely getting enough sleep, usually 4 - 5 hours a night. It is very tiring, but can also be rewarding. You get to meet new friends that share common interests who you can vent, scream and break down on, when you feel overwhelmed.
I can go on and on about my experience, but I do not want to scare you- haha!
If you have any more questions about the program, do not hesitate to ask. I will most likely be presenting at the orientation on the 29th along with 3 classmates to share our experiences during our first semester.
