    Hi olliesmommy, it's been months since my last post. I'm still making it and thanks for your advice you gave the first semester. Are you ready for the pinning ceremony? What can I expect this summer and 2nd year?

    Thanks!
    I'm so ready for pinning!!! Attempting to keep my focus and study for the final on Tuesday!

    Summer was by far my favorite semester (material/clinical wise) it's all L&D, peds, etc. For clinicals you are put in a group but don't have an instructor, you rotate around to several different floors (2 weeks on peds, L&D, antepartum, mother/baby, NICU or newborn nursery, and an outside rotation....I think that's it) anyway, the summer is good (if you like that stuff!) The instructors are your 1st levels and a couple 2nd levels, so you get to get a little feel for the 2nd level instructors.

    Good luck!!

    Has anyone found or tried to find some of the books for the Fall? The school has a few of them, don't know which ones I should get first to spread out my limited funds and start reading up on some materials.

    I'd recommend starting with the Kozier & Erb Fundamentals (this was the main book we used for NUR 111) and a test taking strategy book. Here's a link for starters Test Taking Strategies For Nursing Students. The testing taking part was my biggest struggle the first semester and reading up on it helped tremendously. Hope this helps.

    I just wanted to let people know that there are a couple people selling their old books in the area, some might be an edition or two old but others are current edition. I recently picked up all but one book off of craigslist from a young lady who started last year but had to drop for personal reasons. I was able to save a large amount of money. They are heavy!

    Congrats to everyone who got in!
    If you haven't already bought your nursing diagnosis book, I would recommend the one from Lynda Carpenito. The layout is so much easier to follow than the book jn the CFCC bookstore.
