    I really like PHD and the nurses seemed wonderful. I hope this is a good semester although I am a little worried about the instructor as I heard you'll think she's not bad at first but your opinion will change
    So, first semester when we had our orientation at the hospital they gave us a couple of papers about the hospital. It was about PHD. I seriously started questioning them in my head. Why would they give us info on PHD studies when we are going for our associate degree?
    :lol_hitti

    PHD stands for Presby Hospital Dallas.

    Anyway, I am sure you will like it. Do you park at the heart institute? Did they tell you about the robots going between buildings? (So you won't be surprised seeing them rolling next to you at 0600.)

    The students say that certain instructor used two different books, the instructors say there were students who 'lacked integrity'.


    Truth? I don't know. 3rd semester for you all. Don't worry about anyone else's opinions.


    As I have posted on many a threads....."Stay dedicated, motivated, and determined!"

    I was almost to the hospital when everyone started calling me asking me if we had clinicals today because they hadn't even left yet I told them I was almost there!!! hahaha. I did a 180 on Greenville but I still trucked along to get there when the instructor called me and said that DCCCD hadn't announced closure but she decided to cancel clinicals. I tried to do another 180 to U-turn but I decided to just do a safe U-turn at the next light

    SNOW DAYS RULE!!!! I had one last semester and I have one this semester! COOL!

    I am glad you are at home safe. I wonder how many of us went to school.
    Brie, we have the same lecture instructor this semester. We are going to make it, aren't we.

    is this a general rule, if the campus is closed, then there are no clinicals? I was wondering, because in one of our calendars it says something about a District Conference on Feb. 22, 23.,no school, and this would be clinical days for me. Would that mean I don't have clinical on those days either?

    I don't think it's a general rule. The best is to ask your clinical instructor. But if it's a no school day then you shouldn't have clinicals either.

    We were supposed to have lecture today. My instructor says that we have to watch a lecture video on eCampus this week so we can continue with regular lecture schedule next week. We can also go to Arlington tomorrow for lecture but I don't want to drive there.

    Yes Katie... we will make it! It won't be easy, as a matter of fact, it will difficult, but I know we can do it. We just need to continue to support each other and stay focused. Let me know if you have anymore questions!
