OCC - for Fall 2012 or Jan 2012 prospective students! - page 28

Hi everyone! Okay so I decided to make a seperate thread for those of us seeing what our options are because we got the dreaded letter from OCC. It was getting hard to filter out the information pertinent to us in the general... Read More

    When you start 1410 you will have theory on Mondays (always), then you may have Tues/Wed lab days, morning from 9-12 or afternoon from 2-5. OR, you may have Thurs/Fri lab. That's for the first 6 weeks. So you'll have school 3 days a week and no clinical (oh those were the days!). Starting week 7, you will have clinical at the extended care facility in place of whatever lab days you had. So if you had Thurs/Fri lab, you will have ECF clinical those two days: Mon - theory, Thurs/Fri - clinical.

    That goes on for two weeks.

    Then I believe you go back to the three days a week routine (theory, lab/lab) for one week, and then you start your acute care facility clinical and your schedule looks like this: Mon - theory, lab one day a week whatever day they assign you to (they will email you your new lab day), and two days at clinical. And that is standard throughout the rest of your first year.

    For Foundations you use several books. You buy the majority of the books you will use throughout the program that first semester.

    We used the big med-surg book, the psych book, and the Michigan Nurses Assoc. book for theory. There's also another book the name of which is slipping my mind right now, but it was really boring to read and I haven't read it since Nov...contemporary something, lol. There's also Nanda, NIC, and NOC, for careplans. Don't worry if those names don't make sense right now...you will learn them well soon enough

    For lab we had a set of DVDs to watch before classes and a skills book to read.
