I did A&P I and II over a five week course. I agree II was more difficult because it was more understanding the systems in the body and I unfortunately had a different teacher that wasn't as involved as the first. I found that I immediately studied the material I learned in class and made flash cards. I had to cut back on work to two days, if you dont have to work I wouldn't. I also stayed after and labeled the models in lab with tape so I had the spelling down. Good Luck
I agree you should go for it! I went to school and was two semesters from a bachelors degree in psychology but I withdrew. Five years later I went back to school started over and went into pre nursing. There are people of all ages that decide to go into nursing so age should not be a factor. Some schools focus more on your grades for your pre reqs than non science classes, so semesters that you did not do as well might not hurt you. Good Luck!
I was looking at them on amazon and I liked the pink one too!
Thanks! That is right in my price range. I just found this website and am really excited to be able to talk to other people that are going through or have advice for nursing students.
I am not sure if you retook the TEAS yet but I have to say I did poorly on my first one and was pretty upset as well. But I bought some study books for the TEAS and studied and did a bunch of mock questions. The math was hard for me the first time but the second I was more refreshed on fractions, dividing and everything I have relied on a calculator to do. If you study you will do great. Wish you the best of luck.
I am not sure what your school requirements are but where I am going the english did not count as much as the science and math. I took the TEAS twice because I did not do well the first time. I found that I had to go back and practice as far as grammar and punctuation. I know that the nursing schools where I live you need to have overall 80 to be competitive. I am not sure though because I took the test to get into nursing school, if you are already there it might be different. Have you talked to an adviser maybe?
I have to agree with the above comments. I took a CNA course and it was easy. I read the chapters and the information is basic and if you have taken some pre-reqs like A&P it will be a review. As far as the skills part, where I took my class the teachers made sure you had the skill down before they tested you on it. After you pass the class the CNA certification test is not bad either, the written is fairly easy and by the end of the course and clinicals you should have your skills down. Good Luck!
I agree flashcards got me through A&P. As far as lab I always went over the body parts we learned in the class the same day and sometimes stayed after. Labeling the actual models of body parts really helped me too. (I used tape) I think the reason this class is so hard is because it is a lot of memorization, especially in lab. Keep up with reading and you will do great! Wish you luck
Hello everyone, this is my first post and I was wondering if anyone could give me advice on a good stethoscope for clinicals. At orientation we were told not to go too cheap or too expensive. Does anyone have opinions from good experiences in clinicals? Thanks for any advice.
