    hi pharm_bsn, we had our lesson about charting on our primary health care nursing 100, on our first semester when i was in second year. actually, our phc teacher may have been the same with yours too, she did not elaborate much on charting and she did not give us reference books from where we could find more examples of charting, she just gave us the examples, both on the narrative and the soapie. we just learned to make our chartings better from experiences on the ward.., it was really funny coz during our preclinical exposure...we were asked to make a sample charting on our ward notebooks..our chartings were full of red ink...from our clinical instructor's corrections...so in the process we learned to make them better, but that doesnt mean im telling you that you should just let it be...why dont you ask your clinical instructors themselves if they could show you which books are good when it comes to charting...or well like this you could ask the many great brains here...im sure later you will be flooded with suggestions...
    peace out! rock on!:spin:

    Good day!
    This is my first post, i'm a BSN III Student. Our ncm class for the sem is prom-prev ncm, but i noticed that our school concentrates on Maternal and Child Nursing Topics... We're using a manual, but i think it lacks relevant info, can anyone recommend a good MCN book? One more thing, can i ask anyone for help on how to write a good charting? (traditional and SOAPIE) Our lecture in ncm100 lacks some substance, and i cant find a good reference... Thanks a lot!

    Try to have Basic Maternity Nursing by Persis Mary Hamilton... clear and easy to comprehend.... and of course the one we are using in our school--> Maternal & Child Health Nursing by Adele Pillitteri 5th ed. 2 volumes, kapal nito kakatamad basahin pero worthy naman ang allotted time for reading.

    and actually it is not a two year programs, we are almost 3 years here, and we are bout to graduate on the end of the semester, and if you happen to wonder why some students, can finish with in a year or 2, because they are an ALLIED STUDENTS, meaning they were doctors,PT,MIDWIVES,etc...

    hope it is clear to you, this program are intentionally for us, SECOND DEGREE, people who had our first degree already... And i do believe as well that, every students has a lesser knowledge unless they are expose to the real settings of what you called hospital, you will know someday that OH, I HAVE NOT LEARNT ENOUGH FROM MY SCHOOL. I HAVE SO MUCH, TO LEARN...
    Hi! I would like to know the name of your school.Also , please include the phone number.Thank you.

    hi pharm bsn! ur welcome!:wink2: :wink2:, actually i have never heard of a book about charting for nurses... but well perhaps there is one right?...

    poonam 25...hi! rn_crucial is right , why dont u choose the best nursing school around ur area, or if u are willing to go farther...the best nursing school in Luzon...there is a very tough competition on hiring these days.., and in additon there may be a lot of NLE takers but the passing rate is decreasing...so better pick the best ryt!? peace out! rock on

    Hi to all,

    I'm a student nurse too. second courser. I realized there's no future with business management. Btw, I am from Lanting and I will be graduating march 2006 too. I believe we are the first batch to take the new format of NLE. By topics na diba? I'm having problems with CHN. Right now I am more concern with NCLEX.. haay I don't know why. I'm all stressed out thinking bout it. A lot of people were telling me to take it one step at a time but i couldn't help myself from worrying. DO you guys have plans of going to US after grad? I have my tourist visa but I don't know if I should go there or if I should look for an employer here instead. Anyway goodluck to all of us.
    hi may i know how did you apply for your tourist visa?..many thanks!!!have a nice day

    all i can tell you is that, DO NOT EVER MEMORIZE IT, understand it, before from my first course i was used in memorizing but when i was in nursing we were told by our clinical instructor that never memorize, instead you need to understand it, ofcourse while understanding it you need to retain something in your head, heheheh... Lalo na sa NLE, walang memorize jan, all you need is to understand why did it came into that, kasi situational eh there are no objectives unless otherwise it is a bonus...

    good luck:trout:
