Any advice, on taking pathophysiology. We are using the book. By lachel story. Also any adice on the health assement class, starting nursing in the fall, pretty nervous
Any advice on how to approach patho, how are the test questions set up, is it definitions or applied? Best study tricks? .
Also is health assessment difficult? Any tips for that?
My patho class has been combination of applied and knowing definitions. Our text is Huether and McCance, Understanding Patho. Thus far the teaching method did not work for me so I had to do additional work on my own to understand concepts. If your text book has physiology chapters, start on those because they just expect you to remember your A&P stuff and they tend to skim over it really quickly.
Yeah like we suppose to remember A&P from 2-3 years ago
Additional items that help me understand concepts are videos from youtube. there is tonnes of nursing lectures on there. I subscribed to A.W videos because I'm very much a visual learner and he draws and explains the patho as he goes. There's many other good ones. Just remember if using other lecturers stuff make sure its inline with what your own professor is teaching.DO NOT
challenge your professor with information you got from another professor...you will get on their "bad side" What your professor say is "always right" or just make them think it is.
I also like this guy D.F because his slides are almost
identical to what we have in class.Again make sure they are inline with what your professor is saying if you use alternate education. Videos by medical doctors are also good because they get straight to the point at getting the patho down, however they do not include nursing management.
Here's one of A.W's videos.
