    Well it turns out the remedial classes has the headsup. They are already covering medical terminology. The instructor told them they'll be somewhat advance, because of the material covered on top of their assignment on July. I''m having a friend makes some copy for me. If its anything major or worth your while; I"ll forward it for those who are interested.

    Will come back w/ more info...

    Right here trying to grasp the fact that only 140 out of the 200 students that started are graduating. The class is so intense but also got good news that if we can master VEEB, we all good for ANY RN program. That is a PLUS!

    I heard that about the RN program too.. We just have to STAY focused and STUDY, study, STUDY! I'm sure we'll make it through VEEB and beyond!

    And where are you and Dime getting all this inside info?? LOL

    Don't laugh...... a good 2weeks only. Apparently, I was informed they are covering not only medical terminology, but preparation on Nclex exam. At first I was just as confused as you all were; came to realize perhaps they felt they should get them acustom to the schools material since their entrance scores weren't so good.
    Which I guess, would be a smart thing to do by getting them better prepare. Anyway, my friend is waiting for the end of their class ( this thursday), i believe. She wants to make one copy of the entire material given to them from the remedial course.

    Be patient ladies....I didn't want to devulge to much info...I don't wanna press my luck on a public forum. You never know who's reading.

    I agree we're going to have to stay focused. Even online we can help each other out. Study, study, study, is indeed the best way for all of us to even have a fair shot at Helen Fuld , as well.

    We might not be in the same Group A/B, but we are surely going to get the same materials. Keep motivated and connected. We might just be each others greatest help.

    --------------------------------
    AS FOR THE INSIDE INFO.....(singing) "I'LL NEVER TELL...". :smiley_ab

    Besides, one must not give up their sources. It'll ruinned it for the rest of us!LOL!! And we just might have too...... And I don't think you would want that..would you.... LOL



    **Oh...and Pink...what's best about this is...its straight from the horses mouth. LOL!!! :spin:

    Your absolutely right about staying connected, especially since the three of us are aiming for the same GOAL (HF)! If were lucking maybe we'll be in the same group and can form a study group! Based on Trini's posts that's the best way to maintain that coveted 85!

    As far as the "Source" goes..... As long as the Horse keeps talking, I don't need to know it's NAME! LOL! Keep the Info coming!

    Look forward to meeting you and Akanni at Orientation! I can't wait to get started on this new journey! It's going to be tough but the rewards will be abundant!

    That refresher course is bogus. They have a bridge program for the people who either failed one part of the entrance test or past with very low marks. Yes they do learn information that is used in the first semester but they pay 450.00 for it. Do you rather pay 450.00 or pay 0.
    I found my modules for the first semester so get your pens and paper and i'll tell you what to study!

    In Anatomy:
    1. Know the definition of Anatomy, Physiology, and Pathology.

    2. Know the 5 levels of organization in the body (Its chemical, cell, tissue, organ, then the system(meaning the whole body)).

    3. Know your body systems( Integumentary, Skeletal, Muscular, Nervous, Sensory, Endocrine, Cardiovascular, Lymphatic, Respiratory, Digestive, Urinary and Reproductive)

    4. Get the definition if metabolism, catabolism , and anabolism.

    5. Know your directional terms (Superior, Inferior, Ventral, Dorsal, Medial, Lateral, Proximal, Distal, etc)

    6. Know your body planes (Sagittal, Mid Sagittal, Frontal, and Transverse)

    7. Know your body cavity ( Dorsal and Ventral Cavity )

    8. Know the regions in the abdominal cavity ( Epigastric, Umbilical, Hypogastric, Right and Left Hypogastric, Right and Left Lumbar, Right and Left iliac) and also know what organs are in each region.

    Thats what your first test is on!

    Thanks Trini...I know...but Idon't think they had a chose in the matter. The school informed them that this remedial course was 450; and if your willing to get into your profession you'll follow oders. I thought the same way...why $450. It ridiculous to me. They should not have to pay to retake an exam. From judging the way I'm hearing it..They won't take the same exam we took, but what they covered the 2weeks. Funny!

    Thanks Trini...for the 1st semester. Module. We ( I speak for everyone) really appreciate it.

    The entrance test they give is to see if you have a 9th grade math and 12th grade english or vice versa. I dont think its fair that they have to pay the 450 but some people lie about it. They should say that they didn't pass with high marks so they have to do the bridge program (which is why their paying the 450). They shouldn't make it seem like they have an advantage because honestly its not true.

    At the end of th bridge program they have to take another test (which is harder that the first) and if they dont pass with a 80 their not getting in the program.

    No one is ahead of the other person, even Cna's in the program. We all have to learn together, you'll be surprised to know how much Cna's and people who took the bridge failed out, its not even funny.

    And for those Cna's starting the program, never act like you know everything because they will call you out to demonstrate and if you mess up they will let you here it. If you know certain information help your peers and dont keep it to yourself because nursing is a team work and we should all work together.
