- 1Nov 12, '12 by virgolove34Quote from Ski UtahMost of the classes in the beginning are 8 weeks long. Some digital watches have second hand. You sign yourself up for classes. The first class is fundamentals of nursing and you learn about the history, legal aspects, ethics , what nursing is, bed making, baths, communication, nursing process, enemas, foleys and the list goes on ha. The second class is pharmacology and physical assessment which i am in.. and you learn about drugs, passing meds and doing a head to toe assessment. You do need a stethoscope. They don't require a certain brand. I have a Littman but a few classmates have a prestige.Hey there everyone--particularly NURSES or already student nurses!
I have some questions that they will probably answer on the 29th, but still, I'm just dying to know...
What is the first class? Nursing 108? Is that the only class we take for the first 8 weeks?
Do we need a stethoscope? what kind if so would you recommend?
Do we need a watch? Can we use digital?
Do we have to wear the white nursing shoes or can we wear something else?
Does the nursing school sign us up for the courses or do we?
Do we get to take Spring break? Any break at all over the summer?
Does anyone want to sell me their nursing 108 book?
Thanks for any information you pass along
CONGRATULATIONS EVERYONE! I'M SO VERY EXCITED!!
- 0Nov 13, '12 by virgolove34You buy new books for every class but I'm in physical assessment and we still use our 108 book as well. Your cohort has the same teacher. Two different teachers teach the material... They split up the content but everyone is in the same class. You have different clinical instructors. All nurses doesn't allow names on the forums.
- 0Nov 13, '12 by cp1024, ADN, RNThanks Virgolove!! I saw that they had 2 different teachers listed for the class, but the times were the same and it looked like the same class room was listed for both but different teachers. I wonder why they make it look like there were two different classes per 8 wks... What does your schedule look like now (and for 108)?
- 0Nov 13, '12 by cp1024, ADN, RNTo look at the classes for Nursing or anything, at TCC you can log in to the SIS on TCC and search the classes you can see the hours, teacher, labs, days a week the class meets, ext. You can also look in the spring catalog if they sent you one in the mail.
Also just FYI Chmicha, I am still trying to talk to my mom, but apparently she's having phone issues. I've got my brother going to tell her tomorrow that I need to talk to her, so hopefully I can let you know something definite about switching with you then. But sometimes my brother can be a bit flaky...
