    Do you have clinicals at VA? I was told that we all meet at ECC for orientation at the end of August. Katie
    I have Psych clinicals at the VA... I don't know where I'll have my preceptorship at yet. I have orientation for 4th semester on 8/2

    Ok so.... I had orientation today, talk about overwhelming!!! When do you guys have orientation??? I started Psych last week and I'll be finished next week. I guess I just don't know where to start! :uhoh21: I think that the Management class will be pretty helpful, but it just seems like we are doing so many things at the same time... If I added the days correctly, I will have to be with my preceptor 2 days a week in order to be finished in a timely manner! Well I guess that's it for now.. Sorry about my ramblings...

    What did you find overwhelming? Our orientation is on 27th at ECC. I know that our psych clinical will be 4 days only.

    Everything! I've never had so many things to do simultaneously in nursing school. Between Lecture, management, and my preceptor, I feel like I won't have anytime to study. I guess I'll just have to buckle down with my time. So many people in my class took an educational leave of absence because there will not be anytime to work! I think that the whole preceptorship thing is what gets me the most... Luckily I got my first choice!

    I will also be at the Psych Orientation at ECC on 8/27. I know for THR, we will be getting a couple of live lectures for psych!

    For 3rd semester, did y'all print the notes, and lecture guides for the lecture?

    Did you fill out the blanks on the lecture guides before, during, or after the lecture?

    I didn't fill out the lecture guides. I didn't even print all the lecture notes. But I spent time watching/listening to her old recordings of 3rd semester lectures. And I read both Iggy and Lewis texts, too. MedsPub is mandatory.


    Oh, and I am back from my annual DC/Baltimore trip. Inner Harbour and National Mall are still there, but it's much colder there than here. Good to be back.

    Did the old lecture videos pretty much follow her lecture?

    I'm watching one now, and I was just wondering. I'm filling out the Lecture Guide as I go. I figure, since it's the same as the notes, I will just fill in the blanks, add side notes, and then add whatever extra info she adds, if any, during the actual lecture.

    There are some differences. For example, MI and EKG are 4th semester now. Otherwise the lectures are mostly the same.

    That's fine.....It's only good review anyway.

    I used to do EKG's all the time... I came across a EKG lead placement pic, and I actually remembered where to put the leads.

    .....Now....how to run the updated machines may stump me. LOL!!!!! I think I learned on an outdated machine when I learned back in '93 or so!

    Does anyone know where they will Intern? I am applying everywhere I possibly can although I'd like to stay at Methodist. They're building a Methodist Hospital just 2 miles from where we're building our house right now!!!! That's a major reason why I'd like to stay Transfer!

    Good luck everyone with this semester whichever one you're beginning!

    Where are your clinicals now, and who is your teacher, that sure does sound like heaven. Does every fourth semester teacher do that, or just yours?
    And where is Methodist building a new hospital?
    Sorry, I'm asking to many questions
