I finished all of my pre-reqs last semester and so I spend this semester taking Medical Terminology
to refresh my vocab before starting the Nursing program in the fall. I figure it can't hurt to already know most of the terms ... one less thing to learn!
To keep myself expanding my knowledge base, I read this website all of the time and follow the links given to explore on my own. I read books, fiction and non-fiction, about the nursing field. I watch all the shows on medical procedures on The Learning Channel ... I love that channel!
I am also working part-time as a Nurse Tech at the local hospital ... one month there and I have learned more than I learned in the 16 weeks of my CNA class. It's amazing what you can pick up from other nurses ... and if you tell people that you want to learn, they'll help you!
