    Ditto what Daytonite said. I'm second semester also. I really like the Saunders book. It's divided into sections and I use it as an additional study aid for exams. For example, we just finished the...

  6. Daily planner
    This is a bit 'low-tech', but it works for me. I bought one of the desk calendars at Walmart. The big one that is supposed to sit on your desk. It was less than 3.00. It is blank so you just write in...

  8. Scared to death of doing a foley insertion.
    I just put my first one into a patient last week at clinicals. The only way I'd it up to that point was on a mannequin. The patient was in labor, had just had her epidural put in, so we were good. I...

  12. NLN Exam, and BCTC vs. ECTC
    BCTC is really competitive too. They accept around 120 each year, but there are a lot more than that that apply. If you want to improve your score, you may want to get the NLN review. I feel like it...

  19. School Schedule, Time Off???
    I just started my first semester this week, but it looks like it follows the school's schedule, at least this semester. We get fall break, and classes end the same time as the rest of the school.

    Thank you both. I knew we had to do the 120 last semester, but I didn't realize about the 120 after. Although, that's a good thing in my opinion. That was one of the things that was tickling the back...
