Provided I don't totally bomb my final on Friday, I should be on my way to second semester of the ADN program. Yahoo!
It's divided into L&D the first half, then Med-Surg for the second half. I'm really excited for L&D, but extremely nervous about Med-Surg.
I don't feel like my clinical experience this semester has prepared me for med-surg, and I don't know what to expect. Is there any area(s) I should be focusing my studies on? I plan to study as much as I can during the break. My instructor said to definitely know diabetes. Maybe I'm getting myself psyched out for no reason, but I want to be prepared. Any guidance is greatly appreciated!

well, in a strictly rational note, :d, you don't know any more about being an l&d nurse than you do about being a m/s nurse yet, do you? that's why you're in school :d.
relax, keep your eyes and ears and heart open, and bone up on your physiology and anatomy before you start either of them.
yeah, and study up on diabetes:redpinkhe-- it's getting to be one of the biggest admitting or contributing diagnoses these days.
