    Are you asking if they grade on a curve? With regard to how busy life is at school, depends on the week or day, sometimes hour. Actually, it is pretty individual. For some people it takes every waking moment for others, not so much. The variables influencing that are multiple. So it is hard to say what it would be like for another person.

    Yes, I wanted to know if they grade in a curve. I hope not!! Newman is my top choice for many reasons. One is that my wife is a psychologist and would like to keep her present job. We live about 3 hrs from Wichita. Havent really began to work the details out just doing some snooping.

    One more thought, In your view, what is the right answer to the JW question asked at the interveiw. Seems this could be a dragger waiting to ............ I dont see any likable answer.

    I know you are busy so just one more question. Do you know of any classmates that had GPAs in the lower threes before admission to Newmans srna program?

    No, they do not grade on a curve

    DO NOT GIVE THE BLOOD NO MATTER WHAT!

    Yes, the requirement is 3.0 and above, there are people in all ranges of that.

    DO NOT GIVE THE BLOOD! Regardless of scenarios surrounding it, unless the patient has indicated that it is OK with them.

    Yes, the requirement is 3.0 and above, there are people in all ranges of that.

    Read your complete blog few weeks ago and just rechecked it. I love what you are trying to do for the rest of us.

    First year- Not a freakin minute you are not in class, studying, in clinical or driving to and fro. 0500 - 0700 study, 0700-0730 drive to school. 0800-1500 class of one sort or another. 1500 get assignent and drive home. 1600 -1900 care plans (this gets shorter as you figure out what is needed and where to look). 1900-2100 study and do record keeping. 2100-2200 eat dinner, make tomorrow's lunch, coffee, shower. 2200-2230 pet the wife. 2300 sleep to 0500 if class day, 0430 if clinical day. Repeat.

    Second year is less class time but otherwise the same.

    You will always feel behind and wish for just a day to get caught up.

    Hey wintermute, I get an extra half hour compared to you, my wife doesn't
    to like to be petted.

    BTW this is aquote in regards to when she was shoulder surfing my reading of allnurses.

    You guys sure do alot of whining, at least you still have the w/e, right? LOL
    All kidding aside, do most programs also require w/e call during clinical time?

    We rotate weekends, not on call, you do a 12 hr shift about 1 per month. Hopefully it isn't just before a big test but it always is for someone. Also we do cardiac and liver transplant call. That's on 24/7 6 weeks for cardiac, 4 weeks for livers.
