3rd semester of 4 ADN students, what are you learning?

  1. I'm just curious to see how other programs are arranged.

    This semester (3 of 4) we are doing maternity nursing, and more med/surg.

    Our medsurg topics are the following:
    IV Therapy
    Musculoskeletal disorders
    Connective Tissue disorders
    Emergency Nursing and Client management
    Liver/Gallbladder/Pancreas
    Congenital Heart Disease
    Cardiac

    As far as cardiac goes, we did cardiac last semester as well, so I'm thinking this will be more in depth than before.


    Also, how is your pacing of the material covered? We cover each topic in a week, and have a test every week. Is this similar for every one?

    Just curious!

    I did OB/Peds 2nd semester, this semester I am doing psych/med/surg. For the first 8 weeks I am in the psych hospital, and for the second 8 weeks I am on the med/surg unit. We have 6 tests, one every 2 weeks and a final. The tests are a combination of psych and med/surg content.

    Psych, endocrine, genitourinary, cancer, reproduction issues appear to be the primary topics. More than enough, lol!!
