A lot of ppl like the Danskos as comfy shoes. They have to be white. You should be able to get weekend clinical, no problem. ONe thing about weekend clinnical which is a pain is you stay with the same people every semester for the entire program so people's annoying habits get really annoying towards the end. Financial aid. Supposedly Rivier has 90% of its students on financial aid but that seems to be more the day students than the evening ones. The college assumes that if you are working, you can pay the bill. I have found financial aid difficult to work with and some of the people have been downright rude. I think your best bet is work related reimbursement or applying for outside scholarships. Some of the equipment they have you buy for clinicals never gets used, which is unfortunate as you have to pay hard earned money for it. As far as 101 goes, print the notes in advance and take notes on those pages. Use them for tests. Youll have to pass some basic skills challenges like inserting a naso-gastric tube, but hardly anyone had to actually do them. the weekend clinical instructor is really structured and organized so you should feel really comfortable. Reviewing A & P and Micro probably isn't going to help much as your focus is really going to be care of the patient...things like care plans...things tro do to make the patients comfortable. As long as you review the teacher notes and use them as the basis of your study, you should do well. Head to Toe assessment is hard at first and I would definitely go to the extra study hours. Hope that helps.
