Ok I'm going to skip out on proper grammatical form and just start posting things as I think of them hope that's ok Hahaha!
Everyone will hit the Elliot hospital at least once as that's where the pedi/OB rotation is.
The nurses on the floors...Most nurses are very pleasant and eager to teach, however some are not. The best you can do is be pleasant and show up prepared to work, know your patient and have a goal for the day. When you are prepared even the toughest nurses seem to soften a bit. People tell horror stories because they stick out the most in memory but do not always represent the whole picture. If that makes sense. I too an quite the optimist and general can find the bright side of most situations
The excitement will hit you, along with dread. LOL. Your first day will make you want to run for the hills, but you won't. You will take each day one at a time and because you choose to be here, you will make it work the best it can for you. The days are short but the weeks fly by.
This program is hard but the knowledge you gain makes it so very much worth it. It will absolutely test your limits, but it prepares you to act on your feet. Your current study methods may not work for this type of testing, so you will need to be adaptable. As much as people hate to hear it, you will most likely not get the same grades as you do in other classes.
Keep shooting me questions and I will gladly answer
I am also ALWAYS in the library at school and would be more than happy to meet with any of you and show you the ropes so to speak lol!
