    Wow, most of you are doing Peds/OB rotation this semster! We did Peds/OB during block 3 (this past summer) and this semester we are doing Mental Health/Community health & Home health. I really loved OB!!! I hope you all enjoy it. When I finally got to help with the delivery it was such a wodnerful experience. I was so afraid that families wouldn't want a nursing student in there coming to observe but after working with the patient and her family all day, they insisted I stayed and watch the baby's arrival. Even though I have kids of my own, it was still very moving experience each time a baby was born. Something for you all to look forward to. Peds was great. I love working with kids but med math really got to me. lol I don't hate math. It was just confusing! Have you all done the calculation for reconstituted meds? I actually enjoy math... but this one was really tricky!

    Anyone in Mental Health, Psych yet??? I didn't love Pharm and boy do we have lots of drugs to learn in this class! If you have any great learning tips for learning meds, please share.
    I did OB and Mental Health and my last med surg last winter semester We have ped's, community, and leadership this semester and next semester preceptorship and 2 other things I'm not sure about lol

    What does your average week look like? I am just curious. This 8 weeks we have clinical rotations on Wednesdays and lecture on Thursday (from 5-9 pm) plus an online required course (this one is specific to our college - nothing to do with nurse.. boo!!!). Next 8 weeks, beginning at the end of October, we have home health and community health back to back Monday (home health clinical), Tuesday- home health lecture, Wednesday (community health clinical) then Thursday Com health lecture then I work on Fridays. This 8 weeks has been like a deep breath before the plunge - but I am just going to buck up and get through because that 3 week break in December is not too far! yay!!

    Hope you all are having a fabulous day!!
    My schedule looks like this: Monday Community lecture, Tuesday Ped's lecture, Wed. Leadership, Thurs. Ped's Clinical 12 hr, and Friday 8 hour Community clinical Do you guys have an immersion or preceptorship?

    Hi Im a 4th year RN student in Palestine.. graduating in May '13.
    The exam we take here is made by the university and its composed of NCLEX questions from the Nclex websites.
    From what I read, u guys have a very different schedule then we do here...
    The clinical courses im taking this semster are mental health and community health.
    Next semester is my internship and im supposed to work in the medical, surgical, orthopedic (maybe), ER, OR, ICU, CCU, adult open heart, peds and maternity wards...
    Btw...if i wanted to go back and work in America, would i just need to take the Nclex??

    I am so excited that May really is just around the corner! I am halfway through OB(we are on the quarter system so most classes are 12 weeks with some being 10). So far I have an A in the class as I have made all A's on the test(97, 98, 96), and still have another exam and finals(and a presentation worth 5% and an ATI maternal newborn worth 5%).....Do any of you use ATI?

    Winter will also pass very quickly as we have Thanksgiving break right between Fall/Winter qtr and then Christmas break. I also love all of my instructors. They are tough, but Im learning there is a reason our program is a top program in our area!
