    I absolutely agree with your views on taking advantage of any and all resources available to help students understand how to apply what they are learning in lectures as well as , going over the syllabi prior to beginning each course. This past week I emailed each professor respectfully requesting a copy of the syllabus and any other related materials necessary so I might be able to use my holiday break time wisely...I am a first time student in the Generic Full-time and I want to give these classes the time and respect they deserve... Disappointingly, I only received 2 syllabi out of 5. I am missing NUR1060C Adult Health Assessment Cassandra Sturrup (Which I hear will be a challenge), Intro to Nursing Math & Pharm NUR1142 Annette Tomlinson and last but not least I am missing the syllabus for NUR1025L Fundamentals Nursing Clinical Lab with Torrie Holloman... I know you've probably graduated already....but any ideas on how to get these syllabi so I can begin reading the proper chapters or at least get an idea of what I am walking into.....I searched the school website for faculty members emails....Monday I think I'll just call and boldly ask for their emails....Thanks for your post and congratulations on graduating. It's an AMAZING accomplishment.

    Hi Twilliams,

    I haven't graduated yet lol. I'm a little more than halfway done (since I'm in the part-time track which takes forever).

    I know there is a "G" drive folder on the school computers where you can look up teachers and stuff like their syllabus and any powerpoints they may have. Unfortunately I believe the school is closed for this week. But honestly, I would enjoy your free time now cause you won't have any once school starts. I was like you in the beginning, I wanted to read ahead but trust me, enjoy your break.

    Intro to Nursing Math/Pharm is really easy and you have a good teacher. I wouldn't sweat about that class. The skills lab is fairly easy as well. Fundies and Health Assessment will be a little more of a challenge but definitely doable.

    If you have any other questions, feel free to ask

    I have a question concerning SimChart Access code. In that sheet they gave us during orientation that states what is in the packet, it says within asterisks that "All students are required to have SimChart 1 year Access Code- (EHR) Accesscode that is in this bundle*. I'm wondering if I really need the one in this bundle or can I just purchase the one sold separately form the bookstore? Also, since money is an issue can I just but they 6 month one and then another 6 month one down the road?

    To Twillims, sorry for the late reply, but maybe this may help someone else that reads this forum and subject. Usually the professors will not email you the syllabus until the week before, if they even do that at all, or until you start. However, if you already know who they are, you can try to catch them in their office. For the most part, the professors are very approachable, and you can tell them just that what you posted -- that you want to take advantage of the holiday break and review somethings to help you along, however, please make sure you do spend time with family and friends on your break, nursing is challenging and tough classes are about to come and this requires so much of your time already.
