    med/surg is hard. it's like 6-8 chapters each week, with each chapter being at least 50 pages. then the clinical rotation also gets intense because you're doing total patient care (assessment, meds, bathing, care plans, etc.). if you have a clinical instructor like i had for med/surg it's a nightmare. she wanted to fail me, she even tried to kick me out of the class. with the intervention of our lead instructor i was allowed to return to clinical. to keep a long story short, i worked my butt off and passed with a c.
    i think i must have had the same ci. lol just kidding. mine was a very threatening environment. she really didn't seem interested in being a ci, she was always disappearing. i learned later she had "issues".
