I'm starting my 2nd year in just under one month (27 days to be exact) with only 2 semesters left i'm feeling the stress! This semester we're taking Pediatric Nursing, Maternal-Newborn nursing, and Cardiac/Respiratory (which is Adult Health II)
They're throwing so much at us because they switched from quarters to semesters starting this year, so after 3 quarters of nursing school, we now have 2 semesters left and they had to condense everything from 3 quarters into 2 semesters...which means more work for us :P
Basically I want to know what everyone recommends as good "extra" books for Pediatrics, Maternity and Cardiac/Respiratory. I know we are required to have a book on reading ECG's But I want to know what everyone has used, and what they have found to help during these classes???
I'm talking everything from Care-plan books, to "made easy" books...just anything that helped you through those classes!
Also if you have any pointers for Pediatric/Maternity clinical's and tips for studying and test taking....any and all help is appreciated!
