    well, it is april 2007, and i am hopefully graduating in may. i just want to let those of you who are just starting or will be starting the clinical program at dtcc stanton campus, the 1st two semesters are a breeze compared to the last 2 semesters. med surge is no joke!! it takes a lot of studying. the thing that changes in 3rd semster is that the test questions are requiring you to use your critical thinking skills. know your labs and be sure to understand the human anatomy. in order to answer the questions you need to think the whole thing through. it is not cut and dry!! 4th semester is the same as third. although, some feel that it is a bit easier. i think that the reason for this is b/c by this point you have got an understanding of how to critically think. the best advice i can give is work hard but don't be consumed with getting a's and b's. if you worry about getting the highest grade you will burn out before you graduate. know that c equals degree!!! if you can pull off a's and b's great!!! however, if you are like me, with a young children, and a job, you probably won't see an a in med surge. now, the good thing is that if you are full time (both nurses courses) the other course that you take with 3rd and 4th med surge is pretty easy. you will still need to study but it won't take as much of your time, and best of all, the test questions are a heck of a lot easier!!! well, that's all i have for now. if anyone has any questions about the nursing courses or subject matter pm me. i will be happy to help if i can. good luck to all of you!!! there is a light at the end of the tunnel!!

    [font="comic sans ms"]congrats on the up coming graduation!!!! my graduation in next wens (5/16). i am so excited that i have finished dtcc nursing program. my
    1st two semesters were a breeze compared to the last two. i took the hesi exam today and didn't do too good, however, no one really did well except a friend of mine and he got 92% (1,025 points). he has already started studying for nclex, though. i am going to do kaplan online which from what i hear, will really help prepare me for boards . anyway, since classes ended on mon, i don't know what to do with myself. i have been busy during the day preparing for graduation, and everything else, but at night when i used to do the majority of my studying, i feel lost. my nursing advisor at dtcc, whom i have become very close too, told me today that some students even get somewhat depressed b/c school was such a big part of our life for so long. i have actually felt a little down about here and there b/c of the fact that it is over. don't get me wrong, it is a huge releif that i have actually made it through the nursing program, and i do plan to continue my education b/c eventually i want to be a ped np specializing in cardiology, but i am going to take some time off to meet my family again , and get my life back in order. plus, i am 18 weeks pregnant with my 3rd child so, she is going to need a lot of my time. my sons are excited for me (7yo and 4yo). now, i can actually sit down and spend time with them without having to cut our time together short b/c of studying. my husband, who has been doing most of the house work, including fixing all dinners and getting our boys fed and bathed, is so releived himself. anyway, good luck with nclex, and your future endevors. we did it!!!!!!!!!

    Congratulations! I too have felt very lost since school is over. I can't remember what I used to do with my spare time. We just took the ATI NClex predictor test today and I did ok, but it gave me a list of things to study. I know that there are a lot more meds this year than in past years on the boards......Good luck with the new baby and enjoy. The kids...they'll grow up and move away before you know it!

    Hello all you fellow DE nurses! I am a DTCC grad from 1994 (LPN). I am finally, after marriage and 2 children, wanting to go back to finish what I started. I am looking into the accelerated program for LPN to RN at the Terry Campus. Can anyone give any insight into what the waiting list situation will be? I am going to get signed up regardless, but I just was wondering if anyone has any scoop on that? Thanks for your help!
