    Let's see...Health Promotion, Pathophysiology, Pharmacology, and Pharm Lab. That's 10 credits. No clinicals this semester. This is the only semester we don't have any. But summer semester is a whole other story.

    Spring 2003, looks REALLY, REALLY nice for me. IT is MY LAST SEMESTER. YEAH. After four and a half long years of school I will be DONE!!!!!!!

    Next semester I will be taking:

    Nursing seminar 4-2 credit hours
    Leadership/management in nursing-2 credit hours
    Professional practice 4- which we will do more community stuff with our MEGA community teaching project- 3 credit hours
    Capstone-Which is like a preceptor type program where we do clinicals in our area of choice. We signed up for our top choices and I am still waiting. My first choice is NICU, second choice was OB.- We do a total of 180 hours for that if I can remember correctly. We will get 4 credit hours for that.

    Also I am still debating whether or not I will take another elective. I don't have to but it is easy and online, If I do I will chose cultural diversity/issues in nursing.

    The good thing about next semester is the fact that ALL my classes are online. We will meet in the classroom a couple of times but for the most part the classes are totally online then we do our clinicals and follow our nurse that is precepting us schedule during the days. We don't have to do weekends unless we want (instructors prefer for us not to because that means they will have to be within reach during the weekends if we need them). We have to do a minimum of 28 hours per week for the clinicals and then 2 hours of conference per week.

    I am so glad this semester is amost over!!!... This has been the hardest one yet, but I am sure next semester will be worse. I am enrolled in Texas Government, A&P I, Microbiology, and Sociology.

    Also, can I get some advice on what to expect during my first clinical experience. I start them in the Fall. Any opinions and tips will be appreciated. Forward all responses to qweavt@cns.tstc.edu .

    Hi,

    I have a question. In all the programs I researched anatomy and physiology were PRE reqs. Is this not the case in some schools? If it isn't, what the heck is a student going to do in first semester clinicals when asked the pathophysiology of their client? The drug effects... etc.

    I am just wondering how well a nurse could perform without this basic knowledge? Do the nursing programs make you take it WITH the first nursing class???

    Peaceful, totally sounds like my last 2 quarters, I have to ask though, we have a Senoir seminar that rehashes eveything we have ever disscussed in realtion to the nursing leadership etc do you like the class? We have taken to calling ours the BS of the BSN.....:spin:

    For my program, we have to have A and P as a prereq, but Pathophis is a cognate we do in the first quarter, right before our first quarter in the hospital. Unfortuantely, we lost a lot of people (8 I think) that quarter because they didn't pass....very tough class...

    Dear V Summer 1,
    First semester A & P is required for clinicals at my school. I have to get through A & PII by the second semester clinicals. As for how I will handle pathophysiological questions, I already have a biology degree with an emphasis in zoology and comparative vertebrate anatomy and physiology. Humans are a little different but most of the basics are the same as in higher mammals. I have been also working in biomedical research since I got my first degree in 1987. I think I will be fine. My school highly recommends completing both semesters of A & P before starting the nursing core but it is not required. If I didn't have a biology background, I wouldn't even consider taking the nursing core with A & P II.

    If (and that's a big if) I manage to pass A&P1, then I'll be taking A&P2, Developmental Psychology, and I'll take Sociology and my last required English Composition class online. All that is left for the summer is Micro and an Phy Ed class. Hopefully I'll be in the Nursing program August 03, but if not then it WILL be Jan 04! It's so exciting learning all these different things and waiting to get into the program.

    I'm taking Microbiology and Intro to Sociology...then the only non-nursing class I need to graduate will be a Humanities class and I'll probably end up taking that online. I'm applying to the nursing program at the end of this semester, and hope to start in May 2003, with graduation in Fall 04. I'm currently in A & P II and College Algebra, which has been the hardest class so far...I'll be so glad when 16 December gets here...that's my final exam in that class. I just want to pass with a "C"!
