    Way to go Katie!


    Brie --- don't get discouraged. You are still going forward and not backward and that's all that matters. You are HALF way there - major accomplishment.

    congratulations katie!!!!!!!!

    i'm sorry i haven't posted in a few days- i went to austin for the weekend and i just got back. my husband and i had been planning to go since the beginning of september and it was perfect timing because i got an 898 on the hesi and we needed a 900. oh well. i've accepted and there's nothing to be sorry about. i will do the case studies and learn what my weaknesses are and go on into 3rd semester. with all of the disappointment from friday- i had forgotten i had made it into 3rd semester!

    brie- do you have to go to ec on monday at 1p? i'll be there!!!!! :d

    oh, you were so close.
    i hope the case studies won't take too much time to finish.
    by the way, i heard people talking about the "iggy" med surg book. do you think that book would be useful for 3rd semester?

    Yeah I hope the case studies will go by quickly but I'm also hoping I will actually LEARN from them!!

    Our teacher, Branscome, told us the Iggy book would be extremely helpful because she knows that some of the 3rd semester teachers pulled their test questions from that book. I'm going to get it just because I heard it was such a good book. I'm not sure which other books we should be buying?? I thought all 3rd semester was MedSurg and cardiac stuff so we should already have all the necessary books right? Have you guys heard of any other required books?

    I guess I will buy it, too. :uhoh21:
    What about the psych. nursing textbook that is at both NLC and ECC bookstore? I am not sure if there is for 3rd or 4th semester.

    They didn't give us the Iggy book in our pack so I guess I will need to get that one too! I will need all the help I can get 3rd semester... I heard it's tougher than 2nd semester!!!!

    Fun,

    This Iggy med / surg Katie, Brie, and Allison are talking about....we have this book on our list or in the box, correct?

    Also, Ch. 1-8....is that from the Perry & Potter Fundamentals book? Thank you SO much for all your help.

    I hope you and your family have a safe trip and a good vacation in sunny FL!
