Lectures (Fundamental Med Surge I and II, OB/Peds) - Interesting but our tests were always much more difficult than our content and our questions more difficult than what our books expanded on. Reasoning? NCLEX won't hold our hand and guide us through a question, we have to learn to think independently and not how a book tells us too. Holy stress on a stick!!
Skills Labs and Event Simulations: Stressful because our proctor was the director of the program. And sometimes the Dean would pop her head in. If we failed more than one check-off we would be kicked out of the program. Performance anxiety to the max!!
Clinical: Wasn't fun until senior year. 12 hour night shifts, aw yeah! Night nurses are the best! Those 12 hour morning shifts made me feel like a zombie...
Core University Classes/Requirements: Biggest load of crap I've had to endure. Twice as much liberal arts course hours than my major! A+P I and II was enjoyable though...everything else was just a pain in my neck.
0Jul 18, '12 by abiklags, ASN, BSNI loved all the science based classes-A&P and Micro, Pharm and most of the nursing classes. Top was the peds portion of OB-Peds. Med-Surge (1&2) are second. Hated psych and fundamentals. Best clinical experience was my internship on the Peds floor on night shift my last semester.
anything that required psychology or sociology or ethics etc i dreaded. Thank G-d they are easy A's in my school
