Hi Kimmie. I'm just a stone's throw south of you. We're doing fluids and lytes too right now. I feel like we've just crossed over into the twilight zone; the meat of the science and technical practice of nursing that will be awaiting us in the dreaded second semester. This is where the rubber starts to meet the road I do believe.
As for advice... if you study in groups, choose your study buddies wisely. You don't want to absorb bad info and pass it on. I have only one study buddy. She and I are at the same level. We've been study buddies since our prereqs. She tried studying with others but found she lost ground by giving more than she got. Also, for this unit, did you get the Fluids and Electrolytes Made Incredibly Easy book? Our lectures came right off the pages of this book and it's very thorough and easy to read.
Nice to meet ya!
