Ok everyone! I am new to Allnurses as a member. I have frequently read articles and utilized advice, but recently joined! Any and all hep is 100% welcome! I am in my 3rd semester of the ADN program and it is on OB-PEDS. All I have left is Psych in the Fall and then I graduate!
We have 2 unit tests left and a pharm test then of course the final! I really really really want to rock these next two unit tests and my pharm test so I don't have to panic over getting ready for my final! This semester has been so HARD for me! I have no children, never been pregnant and have no experience with anything to do with the OB-PEDS topics! Any ways to remember or understand things better are more than welcome!!!!

AGAIN, I'VE KINDA COPIED/PASTED ALL OF THE TOPICS ON HERE... IF ANYONE HAS ANY HINTS/MNEMONICS/CLARIFICATIONS.... I WOULD BE FOREVER GRATEFUL!!!!!!
