Hi All - was accepted last week to UC SON (traditional BSN) to begin January of '08. My Question:
I have 13 mos. before school starts. Any suggestions about what I can do to prepare for school? I plan to do self study online in medical terminology and to familiarize myself with some meds.
-Graduated college with BS in 1980
-Finished my pre reqs last semester
-Poor math skills, I am weak with a complete lack of confidence
-No medical/clinical experience
-Never had to take Chemistry (not even in HS). Should I take an intro class? Will it help me in pharmacology?
-I am currently not working and would like to find a job in a health care setting (for obvious reasons). Any suggestions on deparments/job descriptions where I could get familiar with a health care setting? I have good secretarial and people skills to offer.
Thanks much, I appreciate your input.
p.s. anyone in a similar situation who would like to study with me?
