- Jul 6, '12 by Chhun3Hello, I applied for the 2013 intake and was wondering if anyone has handed in an unofficialy transcript. Also, if you have completed Libs 7001/7002, do you need to provide documentation for those credits? or will it just be on file already?
- Jul 7, '12 by rsohiHey guys,
I know this is kind of thinking pretty far into the future, but does anybody know when the expected graduation date for us would be? I have a big life event to plan around that date so just curious
- Jul 20, '12 by sandy28Smiley65, how much anatomy gets covered in the program? I just have bio 12, and am wondering how much anatomy studying/reviewing i should do before August?! Thanks!
- Jul 28, '12 by smiley65Rsohi- My group grads dec 2014, so being that you will be starting 6 months later, I am guessing you will graduate sometime in May 2015.? Just a guess
Sandy28- I only had bio 12 from 5 years prior so decided to take basic anatomy and physiology to brush up. I am glad that I did. The first 6 weeks of patho is pretty basic anatomy/terminology review- but that 6 weeks is very hectic!, patho moves quite fast for those of us with a non-science background, so it's really important that you stay on top of it. It is the foundation of your practice and will come into play in every aspect of your nursing career. I found anatomy arcade (website) fun for review, but it didn't help me much in retrospect. I suggest you enjoy your summer if you can and deal with it when classes start.......but if you are like me and can't wait to get going, pick up the essentials of patho book and start flipping through it. review cell physiology for sure. If you know you may struggle, or you feel like you are falling behind once you get going, or if you just want to be prepared, I suggest getting a study group together. You can reserve rooms in the library, even if it's just to go over notes.....try to get one of your classmates who naps during this class "because it's soooo easy" to come to your study group! Also, as soon as you have access to the course, I suggest downloading all of the instructors power points and printing them (4 slides per page) so you you have them in front you in class for taking additional notes!
- Aug 9, '12 by bfr2012If we buy the UCentral, does that mean we can skip the Delmar Nurse's Drug Hand book? Or any drug text/handbook that is required? Thanks!
- Aug 9, '12 by smiley65Yes! You can skip Tabers' encyclopedic, the drug handbook, and manual of diagnostic lab tests
- Aug 10, '12 by spellingbeehey guys, classes are starting soon! have you all purchased your stethoscope&scrubs yet? I am a bit on the late side and have not purchased mine. Does anyone have any recommendations as to where I should buy these? Would I need a stethoscope on the first/second week?
- Aug 10, '12 by smiley65I can't remember exactly when we first used our stethoscopes but it was right away. You will need it for your assessment course (1019) and of course clinical which starts in week 2 (although you don't use it on your first clinical day, it will boost your confidence in the room). There are 2 stores on broadway that sell scrubs. Uniform central and Image Care Uniforms, they both also carry stethoscopes. The BCIT bookstore also has some stethoscopes. Make sure your scrubs have LOTS of pockets....you will need all of them. I ordered my steth from stethoscopes.ca and got my named engraved on it (which was a good thing because there were quite a few black Littman's floating around in 1019)
- Aug 12, '12 by sandy28Hi spellingbee, I would also suggest checking out marks work warehouse for scrubs!
Smiley28, thanks again for your advice! I will definitely be getting myself involved in a study group!
