    Ok, I have made 86 on the third lecture test. The class average is 79 .
    It was a really hard test.
    But I have passed NGT feeding and medication today.

    Congrats, Katie!! :hatparty: :smiley_aa

    What made the exam so hard? Just alot of info all on one exam, or alot of non-lecture stuff on it?

    Even still, 86 out of an average 79 is great! Don't feel bad about it! You are ALMOST finished with your first semester, and you have done great!!!!

    Have y'all started clinicals yet?

    60 to 100 pages???

    That's not a care plan! Thats a Dissertation!
    That is a lot of pages. If a prof made me write a 100 page ANYTHING, he/she better read and comment on EVERY SINGLE PAGE!

    i don't know...the high school that i worked at frowned on 'the usage of red ink'...saying something stupid about the mental effects from seeing a bunch of red marks. (....bunch of horse poop!) i graduated from that school, and i can say that was definitely a new school rule. lol!
    x x x x x x x x x x x

    anyways, i'm great! how are you feeling these days? i made an a (93) in algebra!! :smiley_aa so....i reapplied with nlc as my first choice again, with a 4.0 on the pre-reqs & 4.0 on all 17 credits of the support classes completed.


    this semester, i've completed nutrition (a) & history 1302 (b) (with an 88), and i'm currently taking an accelerated government 2302 class.

    i'm taking the summer off, unless i take the online statistics class. :chuckle (i'll probably take a break.) god knows i need it!!!!!!!!!

    what about you?

    Thanks, the test was hard because most of the questions came from the book. There were a lot of pages to read and I couldn't remember every details. I also thought that she would base her test on her lectures not on the book. Anyway, now I have to read the book more and listen to the lectures less.

    Clinicals are going ok. We are about to switch from surgical to medical unit. And we will have 2 patients with 4 mini nursing care plans. We are going to have fun.

    Yeah- test 3 was alot harder than test 2. I reviewed my answers and I would have got 3 right if I would have just read through the entire question. That's so annoying! I hate when I do that during tests! Our class average was a 79 also. Can you believe we only have 4 more weeks?! YAY!!

    ugggh, I hate when I do stupid things like that. On my last History 1302 exam, I changed 5 answers like an idiot. I would have had all 5 of them correct. Had I not second guessed myself, I would have made a 96, instead of an 86 on the exam, and would have made an A in the class. :angryfire

    Oh well, if we pass, we pass, right?


    4 weeks! WOW!!!! Y'all ARE almost finished with the first semester!!!

    Anyone of y'all going to try for a PCT position for the summer, or is everyone taking a break?

    I agree, my lecture instructor threw out 3 questions, so I now I have an 88. With the additional 6 points, our class average is 82.

    I am thrilled that we only have 4 more weeks!!!!

    I am going to do a Nurse Tech program this summer. Well I guess I will be working there from here on out (THR owns Arlington Memorial). After you complete your first semester with a 3.0, Arlington Memorial will hire you as a Nurse Tech, and then your senior year as a Inter/Extern. It's really cool b/c they will hire you as a RN in whatever department you choose! I'm also taking Pharmacology and Pathophysiology this summer. Wish me luck!!
