I started my LPN_RN(ADN) Bride program March 26. The first semster is online and very disorganized. Some of my classmates are not doing well on tests. Think 40 questions 40 minutes. Material is taken from 3 different books... Read More

    Pretty I feel the same!! Nothing new here either. It's completely a review of systems for us. Although we were exposed to chemo drugs that in ever had before. I honestly think this semester is a condensed review from my LPN program. We are considered 3rd term of ADN.

    Next semester, final semester , is emergency response, burn, community and so forth... All new material that I'm interested in learning. I hope I will learn as, like you, don't feel I've grown.

    I just finished my finals on Friday and got one more semester to go. So far I'm not too impressed with my LPN-RN program at OU. During this last semester they told us we weren't doing any preceptorships for our final semester because they couldn't find enough preceptors. Instead were doing regular clinicals with fewer students per clinical instructor. I was looking forward to preceptorship because it gives me real world experience. Also the switch from quarters to semesters has caused many problems including disorganization, broken promises, and last minute changes.

    Yes I am at a community college. Once I graduate in May 2013, I plan on going back to the 4 year college that I first began my college career.. I owe myself a BSN from that place !

    I'm sorry to hear that but I'm in the same boat. This semester I was not a huge fan of the program and can only hope next semester is better. We also get the cancellations or broken promises and when we express our concern we're told 'welcome to the world of nursing where things never go as planned' ..lol. For example, we had a pharm final on Wed and were told tests scores would be released early Thu to only be told 'ops, faculty decided to hold all grades until all finals are finalized!' Arg.. I have theory on Mon so I wait until after then...
