welcome to daley everyone. Im a 2nd year student and am excited to start next week. some helpful tips....study study study! its not just memorize and repeat anymore like in most of your pre-reqs, you really have to critically think...ALWAYS think safety! Remember your ABC's! (airway, breathing, circulation)
DONT spent endless hours trying to memorize every little detail in the books, you'll drive yourself crazay! DO make sure to get the readings done on time, DONT wait till that weekend when you wanna partay or have plans
. doing a little review each day will help you to remember more things. Also, sometimes the professors pull questions from prepU so you should definetely review those. Do ATI every once in a while, you might not be covering that material yet but its nice to get familiar with it. regarding clinicals, everyone has a different experience so dont get discouraged if other ppl are doing more things at their site. even if you dont spend any time with your RN just chat it up with the CNAs and PCTs, they often are full of great advice and can show you the ropes. now things can be disorganized at the administrative level at daley
, BUT from what I hear things are disorganized at other places too, you just gotta take the good with the bad.
