Hey you thanks for all your help!! you've helped me prepare so much.lol Are you an active member in the Nursing Club? I was able to register for the summer and Fall, so I'm excited!
No I'm not active. But everyone in the nursing program is automatically a member. Honestly I'd be more active if they were a bit more vocal about meeting times and dates. I was going to ask one of the instructors or someone if maybe they could make nursing club announcements in D2L regarding upcoming meetings (which are once a month) but never got around to it. I'll try 2nd year though.
I'm just a little nervous about all of the immunizations, TDAP, TITIS, 5PANEL DRUG SCREEN, TB, PHYSICAL, FLU VACCINE, CPR! Ill try to find somewhere to take all of these and have the physician fill out the proper paper work.
If you have any immunization records remember to bring those to your doctors office along with the physical sheet. With the exception of CPR (and maybe the drug screen I forgot to ask my doctor if they did those there) you can get everything done at the doctors office. They do 6 Panel drug screens at St. James Olympia fields. Thought it was kind of expensive though I forgot the price.
I'm not sure if I asked you before, but did you take Nurse 111 in the summer? If so, do you remember any key points that you had to know? Any info would be awesome!!! Also did you use the "Contemporary Nursing" book?
Ya I took it last summer. I honestly don't remember much about it. It's not a hard class but don't freak out if you don't get an A or a B. I remember one person dropped after a few weeks because she was getting a B! It basically just covers some of the basics of nursing as a profession and how our healthcare industry works.
We used the book (my ex girlfriend actually used the same one in her nursing program) although I don't remember using it too much personally. Buy it used if you can, because after that class you won't be needing it again.
