I am finally starting my NS journey in a PN program! I start my journey January 7, 2013. I know that this next year will be challenging, but I am ready to tackle any obstacles head on. My orientation isn't until Jan 4th, so I don't have much information about what to expect. I am curious to know what was your first semester like in your PN program? How many hours did you spend studying each night? What did your first quiz/test cover? Did you pick a day to have "me" time? When and where did you have your first clinical experience? How did it go? Lastly, do you have a study group? I heard that it is a good idea to form a group with 2 or 3 dependable people. My experience with "groups" have not been so positive, mainly because I end up doing most of the work. However, I am very open to the idea.
Any feedback would be appreciated!
