Hey everyone, I just wanted to get a thread started for all of the BHC/MVC students; please help me get a support system going here. I am starting at BHC in Jan. 07 and would love to make... Read More

    Welcome to the thread Jo-Jo. Congrats on almost being done with your pre-reqs, that is a huge accomplishment in and of itself! Remember, the more courses you have done the better. Don't sweat the HESI, it is not that bad. Just be sure to go to the library and check out the study guide. It is very much worth it. If you have any questions, let me know.

    Oh, and I forgot to welcome Robin too. Glad to hear from you. Where do you have clinicals at?

    Thanks Joshuaha!! I finished all of prereqs last Fall and am just finishing up the rest of the Core classes now. I will everything done but Spanish for Nursing when I apply in the Fall of 08. I figure the more core classes completed the better off I will be (assuming I do well on my HESI). I only ended up with a 3.25 in the prereqs, so hopefully the completion of the core classes will give me the points I need.

    The group that started in the Spring....did most or all of you get in on your first try? Do you know what your overall points were that got you in? Just curious.

    Thanks again everyone!! I'm sure you all are getting ready to start Semester 2, so good luck!! I'll be in Micro on Mon and Wed evenings.

    Welcome to the board Jo-jo and Robin. This is Kaley. This a great resourse for advice on just about anything nursing!

    Jo-jo, I got in on my second try. The first time I think I had like 23 points, and I didn't have as many support classes as you. You should be fine! The second time I had 31, but I know some got in with 23 or less. I guess every time is different. It all depends on how many apply. It's a big plus to have the support classes done, so congrats and good luck! :spin:

    My clinicals for the summer will be at Baylor Specialty downtown. Some of my classmates at are Richarson Regional + Medical City Dallas. How is your semester going?

    Baylor Speciality eh? That is a new one. We got to go to Medical Center Plano, Baylor Irving, and St. Paul for first semester. The only time we went to Richardson Regional was for psych. This semester is going pretty well. OB was a tough class for me, mostly becuase it is so much info compressed into such a small amount of time! On Monday we start PEDS! Yes, I can't wait. I want to specialize in Peds so it will hopefully be right up my alley. Aren't you guys just loving Mrs. Routh?! She has been my favorite teacher so far. Keep working hard guys, you are doing great!

    Yeah, there are 2 groups of us going to Baylor Speciality, myself included. I hear it's a great hospital to learn at.
    So is Mrs. Adair going to be teaching Peds as well? We had her last semester and she was great. I'm loving Mrs. Routh's lecture too. You know, last week we were talking about Nutrition and she mentioned you Josh, and something you had taught her about nutrition, though I forget now what it was.

    That is so funny that she remembers that. Was it about the evils of trans fat?!!!! She always thought it was so funny when I would get on my pedistal and preach about that stuff. Ahh memories. I am so sad to see that she won't be available for my preceptorship fourth semester :uhoh21:. To answer your other question, Mrs. Adair only teaches OB. Pedi will be taught by Mrs. Wilson. Lecture is once a week for 8 hours! Yuck! Thankfully, it is only four lectures, but still it is a long time! Ttyl!

    Yes it was about the evils of trans fat. Hi every one hope that we are all having fun studying for the test. I just hope that I do better than the last test.
    Have a good day

    Studying???

    Respiratory...no, metabolic...acidosis or maybe alkalosis...ha ha ha!

    Ranges? we need to know ranges....eeeek, my brain is going to explode!


    As far as hospitals go...noone is going to Richardson Regional yet, we (Ms. Rouths group) are going to Med City Plano. The Rich Regional was an error.

    I am so loving having Ms. Routh for lecture, and am looking forward to her in my 1st clinical. I agree with you Josh, she is my favorite too!

    Well, gotta get back to studing, just was taking a break.:smiletea2:

    See ya on campus,

    Only two more test to go and one skill left to do and not enough time. LOL. And then we are off to a new step to make us feel like we are on our way to becoming a RN. Only a little more than a week and we will be in the Hospital.
    Good Luck every one.

    Hey Kaley, sorry I didnt see your message welcoming me. THANKS :spin: I love this website. This is too cool to be getting to chat with everybody from home and find out who is teaching what and so forth. Hey Josh, I love Mrs. Routh too. She is great. I really like her teaching style and Kaley, we havent really chatted much since class started but I just wanted to tell you that I think you are really smart. I know you dont say too much in class but when you do....I am always like OMG is that girl bright!! Just thought you might like to hear that. ok guys, I just got home a little while ago from finishing my test 4 and I am BEAT! Im going nite nite.
