    I am starting the program Jan. 7 and live in Abilene TX. Excited but nervous about the program and unsure about how the clinicals will work. Looking for study buddies and any advice welcome. My email is lammons_md@hotmail.com

    dllammons,
    Not to worry about the clinicals as it is not even discussed for many months out. Hopefully you have some time off coming? 144 hrs clinicals in five weeks twice. That comes out like this 24, 36, 24, 36, 24. You can't be on the clock. That is 288 total hours. When my clinicals come I will have about 275 hours of pto/ppl. I am not sure my part time job will be very accommodating and may just lose that job? You start with the computer class and that was very hard for me. I live in Odessa and work in Odessa and Crane. I suggest you get in the workbook and start doing the exercises today just to get a little ahead. Start planning your two powerpoint presentations. 1busymaniam@excite.com

    txnurse728, You have to have the workbook. I think it is Word, not sure. The other book is needed also. I didn't use the cd as I rented and rentals generally don't come with cd but that was not an issue. If you know apa format then you don't need that book. My wife knew apa so that book is still shrink wrapped. The computer class is hard and could easily be 8 weeks. Start the exercises today and start learning to make two power point presentations. You can email me at 1busymaniam@excite.com and I might can tell you which exercises to do? Russell Roach

    Good morning,
    I reviewed my Word last night and sent a couple of emails. If you got the book you can do maybe the first couple of concepts review or review concepts. You will know it when you see it. If you know how to make powerpoint presentations that is great as you have to make 2 powerp's during the course. You can utilize youtube for tips to ppoint.
    I am at the hospital, working. I do have computer time at both of my jobs.

Also, any suggestions on doing care plans....I submitted my first one back but haven't received a grade yet....really nervous about all this and working 50 hours plus a week doesn't help, not to mention taking care of my family, but I am sure I'm not the only one!! Thanks for any help/input you can give.
