    It was cool seeing you there - the boards are very quiet....I've been studying all day (since I got home from orientation). Jaxia runs VERY late to any lecture lol. There aer some irritating people in 3rd semester that I need to get the dish about from you...I won't be there this Wednesday as I have an echocardiogram stress test (didn't even know that was possible lol). Good luck studying....

    Who was at UTSW yesterday. I was working and saw a group in the ECC/NL uniforms. Is that 3rd semester? It was an oncology floor.

    That was Ms. Paul's 3rd semester NLC class - we're there Monday/Tuesday 2-10p....I was the one leaning against the nurse's station - blond hair in uniform...

    We had orientation Monday, and shadowed a nurse Tuesday. Our first day with patients will be Monday. The hospital is very different from where we've been before though. The nurses are patient and kind and truly seem to care about the patients. The facility is pretty nice too (St. Paul)... I'm impressed so far - we'll see how it holds up

    How about you?

    If you are on 3-South...then you will work with some great PCTs and there are a few of us ECC 2nd semester students working that floor too. I am on 5-West/5-North. And yes, the RNs are very friendly in comparison to other places (ie., Presby Dallas - blah!!!!)

    Be nice to PCTs - it is really hard work! Well, for me at least. I find that having 22 patients to keep track of is a bit extreme - call me crazy...but, um yea! I am getting over my hospital/patient inhibitions fast though, and learning too - so I think it's worth it for the moment.

    Hey there - I'm actually on 3N. I love it over there though. I rotate to 3S, 7N, and the ER later in the semester. The late nights are just weird though - I'm having a hard time adapting to that...

    I liked 7N and 3N. I started out at 7N, and ended with 3N...went to the ER in the middle of my 3S rotation, so it really never got a chance. lol


    We'll rotate over to the St. Paul ER this semester too, but we are at Zale for clinical.

    Have you changed your clinical site?

    Yes, we are not at Doctor's Hospital, were' at Zale.. We just shadowed a nurse today...So we're getting a late start r/t psych rotation, and other stuff...

    I like 3N - we are doing basically the same rotation. I'm just worn out with the care plans. At some point they have to stop! How do you have 4 patients and do careplans on them all?????

    Hello Everyone,
    I have a general question. I have applied for El Centro Nursing for this coming Fall. We normally take a family vacation the first week in Sept. (Labor Day Week). This would be the 2nd week of school. Would it be horrible if I was out of town the 2nd week of nursing school. Would this fail me?
    Thanks,
    Billie
