    Hey Spill! Busy, Busy is the theme for 2nd semester for me...It's so weird - we have a long break (Friday to Tuesday) very frequently, then all of a sudden BAM everything at once. Only 5 more weeks of clinicals, 1 more skill checkoff, our final checkoff, then it's all lecture! What worries me most is that final skills checkoff. I need to go practice the foley over and over again....keep pushing and hang in there!

    To say this semester is kicking my tail would be an understatement.

    Spill - how did you understand the final skills check-off would work? I'm talking about set up and the whole pass/fail part of it?

    Hey Yang,

    I'm cking off on the 19th, when is your final skills ck off? From what I can gather, the whole thing is to make it out of the gate---reading the drs orders correctly, doing things with your starred points- you know, cking allergies, doing 3 med cks etc.
    It shouldn't be that big of a deal---I think we just overstress because it is a do or die thing. No 2nd chances.

    We will do fine- we've made it this far!

    I'm sure we'll do fine...I haven't practiced the cath at all though...need to do that! Good luck! Mine and Jaxia's are on the 19th also...Call us and let us know how you did...we'll do the same!

    ok- good luck ladies-kick ass as usual!
    I'm going to the open lab tommorrow to practice w/ Iris.

    We got the speech today about not having a lecturer for 3rd sem at NL. They are going online-internet with our lecture. Not quite sure how I feel about that, but I don't really have an option do I?

    You could move to ECC! The teacher that lectures 3rd semester out there is mine and Jaxia's skills lab instructor this go round....she's AWESOME!

    good luck to you all on your final check offs, you will do fine.
    I don't know who you have in lab, but the lecture instructor we have now, (it is her first year doing it here at ECC), is not very good. It might have some to do with it being her first time and all, but all semester I did not get much out of her lectures. I ended up watching the lectures from Becker on line. And don't get me started on Psych.....

    "The empire strikes back" next semester. 4th semester psych lectures as good as 3rd semester's. Luckily, clinicals at Terrel are really interesting. Katie
