Well, I'm going into my fourth week of school and it is extremely challenging. There is a lot of material to learn in a short amount of time. We started out with Fundamentals of Nursing and Anatomy and Physiology. Fundamentals lasts 11 weeks while A&P on lasts 5 weeks, so we are almost done with A&P! It is going by so fast! It wraps up 10/17. Tomorrow we have our very first clinical rotation and starting next week we have clinicals Thursdays and Fridays til the end of the module. Level I module ends 12/19. We have a lot of homework for Fundamentals which makes it really hard to study for A&P because we spend so much time on Fundamentals. And the bad thing is we have a quiz in A&P EVERY week. Every two weeks for Fundamentals. Even worse, starting next week we will only have A&P once a week, so even less time for lecture.
I like our group of students so far. There are a few immature students (over age 23) that really make me cringe but it is to be expected. There are a few younger students that I can tell are at the most two years removed from high school that I can tell still have high school mentalities (They aren't the immature crowd). Then there is the group of students that clearly has not let it sink in that we are in NURSING school and this is no cake walk. Then we have the students that are serious about their education and work very hard. A pretty diverse group but no one that I just blatantly dislike. Well there is one person, but I ignore her lol.
I have A's in both Fundamentals and A&P so far! I study very hard, systematically, and I pay close attention during class! I just thank God because He is really working it out for me! I just pray that I can keep up the good work!
How is everyone else's journey going so far?
