- 0Aug 13, '06 by nursenary57Hey guys! I'm not dead. Brain dead maybe. Just finished week 3. Through 6 quizzes/tests I'm still clutching onto an A. Got two weeks left on this initial orientation period and then I'll be in the OR on 8/28.
Thats when the fun starts. We average 4-6 tests/quizzes per week. Keeps us on our toes.
The first two weeks were rough. We were in class 12 1/2 hrs one day. Spent at least ten hours in class on a few other days. Sitting there is mind and butt numbing.
Regular class begins 8/28. Class is 1pm is Mon-Thurs. Class usually ends 6-8pm. In the OR Mon and Wed 6am-noon and all day Fri. The next week class is the same but I'll be in OR 6am-noon Tues and Thurs. It alternates like that so I get a three day weekend every other week.
I've got to get back to studying. My machine check, RSI, Bier block, and spinal anesthesia checkoff is coming up. I'll check in soon.
