    mysterious -- I'll be at ECC

    Jaxia,

    I am not sure now about nurse pac / skills pac. Our instructor today called them the same thing. How was your first day? As for mine, I feel like I almost froze to death! It was SOOO cold outside and inside was freezing also. The T building at NL is not that old..you would think it would have better heat then what I felt today. BRRR. We have test 1 in week 3. OMG! We all have mandatory meeting this coming Monday at ECC...maybe I can finally meet you there. How did your first day go? I have same instructor for clinical, skills, lecture. It's only the first day and already a girl in my clinical class is whining about the reading.

    Amy,

    I'm STILL trying to defrost! I had a fiasco with public transportation to start my morning (and end my afternoon! I had an hour and a half to kill before my train, so I rode around on a different train while I waited because the train was the warmest place -- lol), but my lab instructor seems good. I'm a little worried about some of the people in my lab section though. Did you have your lecture today, or when you say 'test' do you mean our skills checkoffs? I have my first lecture class on Friday. I'm not surprised someone was complaining -- we had people asking some of the most annoying questions! I really have to work on my patience As for Monday, I get out of class at 1p, so I'll be there early Can't wait to meet you

    Jaxia,

    LOL @ defrost! No, we have our 1st LECTURE test in week 3. I went to lab today. My lecture is on Wednesday's so I'll have the first lecture tomorrow. Yeah, I know what you mean about patience! My lab section has 3 guys. I was surprised there were that many considering there are only 10 of us. There was one girl that didn't come to lab until around 12:00 noon and we left at 1:30 pm - NOT a good way to start.

    Wow, the first lecture test is in week 3? I hadn't heard about that. My lab section has 2 guys and I was surprised -- 3 is really wild! During the morning session where all the lab sections were together, I counted 6 guys. Maybe they wanted to spread them out? We had two girls who were over an hour late back from lunch, and the lab instructor made a note of it, and said it counts towards their 'you can't miss more than 12 hours or you fail.' Not a good way to start, FOR SURE. We also had one person who just never even showed up at all. I wonder if they dropped?

    Well well....Jaxia and I have one person in our group that we're certain can't last....philosophically speaking...lol. But, we did luck out in the clinical instructor department. We also have one re-admit in our group -- we'll see if that's of any value to us. Glad to see you made it home alright Amy! I'm gonna get cracking (now that I've helped my daughter with her homework) on our reading!

    Take care,

    Kathy

    I actually think we are supposed to bring our skills pac to our skills lab...they wrote nurse pac, but actually should be what was bought from the bookstore.

    It is your skills pack, but only specific items from it (listed in the packet they give you on day 1) each day. That way you don't have to haul the whole thing around with you. I'm wiped out today. I'm gonna eat and read. Talk to you all soon!

    Thanks Jaxia! LOL - if not for her calling me, I'd have ventured out to the car, oblivious to the weather (and the school closing!). Everybody enjoy the day off and stay safe!

    ha, ha!!! yea, I have. Now I'm up and nothing to do! I guess I will crack a book and get started reading. What are you reading, just so I can have some direction.

    You should be fine reading the first several chapters in P&P. (I think for the 1st exam, you cover the 1st 7 chapters or so.)

    I think I posted our reading guide from last semester on the Fall '06 thread...not sure which page it was.
