    I too am starting on 1/14. Had the books shipped to me from Uta bookstore. There are a lot! Hopefully we won't have to print out all of the articles, like in professional nursing! Finished professional nursing a/b and holistic care of the older adult. Just found out that I need an upper level nursing class and upper level elective! What are yall taking fir these? Still need college algebra for my last prerequisite!

    Hi Neonnursej,

    welcome to the forum. I took Medical Terminology (BIO 3309) as one elective and used my PCCN certification in place of the other. If you have an nationally recognized certification such as PCCN in my case or CCRN or a certification particular to your speciality, you can opt out of the upper level nursing elective. Someone started a thread here on allnurses not long ago on certs that were accepted or you could ask your advisor. You could look into Med Term as an elective, but you would still need a nursing elective.

    Thanks for joining us.

    This class just seems daunting. Trying to stop dreading it!!!
    rosemrn,

    know what you mean, but as you said to me so many times last year, we will get through this and soon we will be onto the next one.

    later.

    Scarlet--yup, moved to Portland and I did that Texas Govt class!

    I've taken 36 credits since July and have managed all A's, but a B in Tex Govt....which is fine by me! I will be finished in May. When do plan on finishing?

    I think this class will be fun! I haven't looked at any of the material, but I am anxious to learn some useful nursing material. Assessment is an area we underestimate and frequently do on auto-pilot, so maybe it will make us better nurses, or better yet...be a good review for future assessment courses for graduate school! Hey, I'm trying to be positive now!!

    registeredin06,

    You are amazing! 36 credits since July! I don't know how you did it and you moved half way across country right in the middle of everything last term. Glad you got Texas gov out of the way and i'm sure you are, too.

    I'll finish in Aug if all goes as planned. I'm not thinking too much about health assessment one way or the other; we have to take it and I'll do my best as I always do and that will have to be good enough. It may be painful, but it will be over in 5 weeks and that will be that.

    I'm sure we will be in touch as we get into class next week.

    more later.

    I too am starting N3425! I ordered my books what seems like a month ago but they still haven't arrived. Hopefully they will be here by Monday...although I have heard that we can get away with using other health assessment books in the interim? Anyone doubling up during this course? I have doubled up on every class so far but I am slightly nervous about this one.

    Hi luna_rn

    not sure why your book delivery is taking so long. maybe you saw the syllabus already (it was sent via e:mail to all of us yesterday) which says that week 1 readings can be found in the UTA library on E-reserve in case your books have not arrived by the first day of class.

    not sure if any other assessment books would be ok. this is the first time i've taken just one class alone but i took the advice of some previous students here on allnurses who made that suggestion.
    thanks for joining us.

    Hello Health Assessment Classmates
    I too am registered for this class, and have heard horrible things about the amount of work it requires. I just finished reading the chapters for week 1, Chapters 1-5 and 7, and it was very easy reading. That makes me feel a bit better. I'm taking this class and English Literature together. Hope I have not made a mistake. Over the Christmas holiday, I was able to read some of the required reading for the literature class, so hopefully that will help me out.

    Glad you are with us! You will have to let me know how English lit is. I have to take a literature class sometime!
