I started back today. This semester I have:
Nursing II - lecture, lab and clincals
Pharm II - lecture and lab
Childbearing Family - lecture and clincals/labs
Mental Health - lecture and lab
Developmental Psychology - online but the teacher looks to be very persnickity and demanding/anal.....fun wow....
They've started us off with a bang. Already homework, drug cards to be made and memorized by Friday, pharm stuff, reading, and a paper due in two days for dev psych.
and clinicals already starting Thursday which kind of shocked us all!
I feel like making a paper chain with the number of days I have left (lots) and hanging it from my ceiling - just to get the satisfaction of tearing another one off each evening.
We have a few new-to-teaching instructors this year - not sure how thats all gonna go....
ETA: OH! A piece of good news! They lowered our grading scale standards. Now all we have to get for an A is a 90%
Which is much easier than a 95% they required last semester.
I missed all "A's" by a teeny-tiny bit last semester and sooo wish this was a retroactive thing! LOL But I'm pleased its changed for this semester.
