    Is this the one week clinical at Parkland?

    The thing that most scares me about 2nd semester is the last skills check off. It is when you have only one chance to do it or you fail the whole semester, isn't it?

    Yeah it's that one week clinical at Parkland.....

    I haven't heard about that check off :uhoh21:

    Did you guys see we already have access to 2nd semester stuff on eCampus?! It's awesome! They have Tegrity presentations, chapters covered in each unit, recommended books for success, and SO MUCH MORE! I was so excited to see that we can already look at this stuff.

    Where? What? Who? Me?

    I don't see any new thing on my eCampus. I have a bunch of second semester seminars and videos under first semester lecture (always been there). And there is nobody recommending any books for my success.

    Well, at least it is not just me! But it is a bummer that some of the staff members can make things so hard on us. I wonder if it would do any good to complain?

    When I was finishing up my BS I needed one class at BHC. I applied for admission but their computer had some sort of a glitch and kept spitting my application back - only it wasnt telling anyone. When I finally figured out what was going on, after about 8 phone calls and going round and round, I got some vapid little secratary on the phone who told me "well I guess you dont want to go to college very bad or you'd come down here and fix it". Among other little snippy sentiments before she hung up on me.

    I finally got ahold of someone who actually cared and got the admissions thing fixed but by then the online class I wanted was full.

    I sent an email to the Chancellor right then and there outlining the entire situation complete with names. At 6 pm I get a phone call from his administrative assistant at home, they managed to fix the entire mess. On the spot - and miss snippy was reprimanded severely I was told.

    So yes - it does pay to complain if you can outline details and names.

    Cool, you have extra clinicals just before the semester starts. Very smart.

    I found some great deals on books this weekend. Memory Notebook vol2 for $10 at Half Price. (I couldn't believe my eyes. Why would somebody sell it?) Pocket sized lab & diagnostic book for $20 from B&N. And I also ordered online a pocket sized spanish for health care workers book that has OB/L&D parts (Amazon 4 for 3 sale). Here I come Parkland. :roll

    I am still thinking about buying a small peds/OB book for clinicals. There are some out there but I don't know which one is the best. I have seen a small spiral bound one that looks like the general one we got from the first semester book pac. Most bookstores carry that small OB/peds book. I wonder if that has enough info for clincals...

    Gauge -- That's encouraging! I might need to stop back by there and see if I can get a good look at his nametag. Hopefully I can find someone who cares...

    Jaxia,

    Sorry about the rude Fin. Aid guy. I am not near 99 hours, but I am curious...what happens at 99 hours?

    P.S. Glad you had a good birthday / vacation. It sure did sound nice.

    Hey, has anyone had to deal with the fin aid people at EC? I went in there last week, and explained I was nearing the 99 hour cap. The guy told me that there wasn't anything he could do for me. I said, "so what are my options?" and get this: he laughed at me and said, "Are you seriously asking me that?" I said, "yes" He said, "You aren't really asking me that." Me: "Yes, I am. Isn't this the fin aid dept that helps students find ideas to pay for school?"

    I was sooo frustrated with him. I'm not even IN yet, and already having to deal with frustrating people.

    Brianna,

    You are in the El Centro / THR RN program, correct? What do you do for THR?
