    Ski Utah, I sent you a PM.

    Has anyone placed their book/uniform orders yet from the book store? I just did...it wasn't pretty.

    FYI, I was just able to schedule 108 online. If you haven't already, you should see if your program has been changed! Have a great day!!

    Hey y'all! I'm in cohort 2 and today is my last clinical day for NUR 108! Just wanted to drop by and tell you guys that the program is great and the instructors are even better. I've laughed with them more than any other instructors i've had. The first test is scary, but not as bad as you think it's gonna be. Be sure you do your HESI case studies as you go and don't wait till the last minute to do anything! If you wanna start your reading now... start with COMMUNICATION, ASEPSIS and HYGIENE. These are the main focus of the course. These subjects, especially communication, show up on EVERY test and will be evaluated at clinical. You are expected to know A&P but aren't really tested heavily on it. Clinical isn't as scary as it seems either. Make buddies with the CNA's. They are great resources of info and can be great at demonstrating techniques with vitals and hygiene! The RN's are usually quite busy and don't have as much flexibility with their time, but some are still willing to give advice and help if needed. Some things I wish I hadn't bought were the HUGE care plan books. Small ones are better because you need them at clinical. I've also never once used the Strategies, Techniques and Approaches to Thinking book by Castillo. I bought 1 set of clinical clothes along with the lab jacket. Pockets are GREAT! Be sure to go through the checklist in your nursing skills pack and make sure everything is there. Good luck to you all! See you around the hall!
