I have to take Pharmacology (11 weeks), Common Concepts/Med-Surg (8 weeks), and my Common Concepts Med-Surg clinical(8 weeks). At first, I was thinking it was going to be an hard summer, but now I am thinking it may be somewhat nicer than I had originally thought because the way the schedule works out we get Fridays off! My only concern is getting all the information that I will be needing for Pharmacology in 11 weeks compared to the 16 weeks it is taught in during a Spring/ Fall semester. I have been given the same suggestion over and over about how to study for Pharm, so I think the way to study is not a problem. I just need to know that some of you whom have been through Phamacology boot camp :chuckle not only survived but also made at least a nice, fat, say it loud, say it proud, B.
My other request is concerning Med-Surg. Our original class is now somewhat fuller, because of student who failed their first Med-Surg class. What part of Med-Surg, for those who have taken this class, would you think is the area needing the most attention? I finished my first semester with two A's and two B's (my first B's ever! but I love them anyway) so I feel like I have the ability to withstand more complex content. I think I am feeling insecure because I saw the number of students who failed sitting with our class; it was a reality check moment!
I just need reassurance. Maybe a few success stories and I will feel better.
