EL CENTRO ADN - 1st semester

  1. 0
    Hey guys, just a couple of curious questions for any of the ADN students it El Centro now.

    1. What color scrub pants do we wear?
    2. Can we buy the black Landau clog like shoes (they have a back on them), or do the shoes have to have laces?
    3. Books - how soon will we be able to buy our books so I can start reading over the summer. I am hoping we will be able to get them sooner than later.

    I'm at Northlake but...

    1. ceil blue top with black bottoms. (you can save money by buying your own black bottoms instead of paying Majors' price)
    2. Doesn't matter what shoe as long as it is black.
    3. The sooner the better....to start reading (They had already advised us to spend our summer reading for 2nd semester)

    Thank you so much for your reply iCme2 I appreciate it !!

    Does NL and ECC have the same instructors? If so, which ones would you recommend? Which hospital were you at?

    No problem ajpesina. Both campuses share instructors. Unfortunately you do not get a choice on who your instructors are. You will be assigned one. In addition, you will not get to pick your clinical site either (unless you get lucky). You will however, have some choice over that matter by putting down which site you prefer. I preferred Parkland (so did everyone else) but by the time they called my number (randomly), Parkland was all taken, so was my other prefered choices. In other words, if you're called last to pick your site, you may just be stuck at your least favored site.

    There is one thing you must keep in mind here. DO NOT MAKE AN ENEMY OUT OF YOUR INSTRUCTOR. Befriend them!!!
    I can see you are going to do well... Nursing exams are not like your AnP or micro exams, you have to think critically-not just memorize facts. Read, comprehend, apply.

    Try this site:

    Pick Ruth's test. This is how our tests are structured. As a matter of fact, some of those questions were actually on our test!

    Another thing, lots of negativity goes around. You'll need to stay focus. Students are so spoiled, they think just because they pay for the program they can expect perfection. Don't get caught up in that crowd. My clinical cohort was that way. You must know that you are entering this program with many issues-especially this Fall semester 1 class. The program has changed again and you guys are the experiment. Again, stay focus and keep up with the readings. You will learn to overcome adversity and become an even better person. This is part of your nursing experience.
