~Arizona ~ Starting Block 3 at PC in January what should I study right now?
0Dec 20, '08 by albinotoadI am starting Block 3 at PC in Arizona in January and they haven't given us a syllabus yet.
I would like to know what the content was in Block 3 at any Maricopa county community college. (Arizona)
I have a month to do....nothing and I don't want to get out of the habit of studying.
Soooo what should I study between now and then to help me get ready for Block 3?
And don't tell me "they are all different" or "ask your instructor" thanks
Anything is better than nothing.
0Dec 21, '08 by MithrahI think the best thing you can do is go to the school library and borrow NCLEX review books. Read as many questions and answers as you can. Practice practice practice. You'll learn block 3 stuff when you get there, but ultimately you want to pass the NCLEX and I always recommend those books.
1Dec 22, '08 by DogCrazyI am starting Block III at PVCC. I've gotten some stuff from my instructor. We're doing a psych rotation, a community health rotation and medsurg. Pharm includes I.V., just more of what we've already done and getting more advanced (central lines, etc.)
For process it's a few weeks of psych, then back to the systems (renal, GI, GU and so on)
0Dec 24, '08 by PEBBLES1Give your mind and body time to rest. You are on break for a reason. I always wanted to study on break also, but one of my instructors gave me the best advice. And that is take a break, you will have plenty of time to study once school start back. Also, you don't want to burn yourself out, because as you know, nursing school is very stressful. Take it from me, I just graduated from school 2 weeks ago and I am so tired and burned out, that I can't even bring myself to start preparing for the boards. So please take a break from studying
