    Congratulations to everyone who was accepted into the RN/LPN programs. I did not get accepted into the RN program, but thankfully I was accepted into the LPN program. I so excited and nervous and can't wait until fall! Hope everyone has a great summer.

    Congrats MMcduffs! I am so happy for all! I start Nur 104 tomorrow!!!! Very nervous! When I went online to Blackboard this morning there was so much already posted! Maybe I made a big mistake taking Psy and Speech class with this Pharmacology class! The Speech and Psy class are just for the month of June, but still.......I am so nervous about tomorrow! I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!

    Thanks pcurbow! Congrats to u! I decided to take the summer off and start fresh this fall. How's NUR 104? Is it hard? Is there anyone else starting LPN program this fall? Is there anyone already in LPN program that can give any insight into the classes/work?

    This is the 3rd class meeting and the first testing day in Pharmacology (NUR 104) We had two tests today and from now on we will have a test each meeting on the previous Module. I was relieved that I had studied enough for the tests we had today. The math was easy and I had studied the theory stuff enough. I know that it is going to get harder though.

    To other students at Gadsden State, this class is made up of LPN students and RN students. It is quite large with 47 on roll. Some of the students are from other Gadsden State campuses. I would advise those of you waiting till August to try and find an old dosage calculations book from a friend or from local thrift store, or even library. You can almost teach the stuff to yourself and then be extra ready. We have covered the first 4 chapters and are doing heparin and insulin calculations this week.

    The instructor is extra nice and she posts every lecture on WIMBA and provides lots of online stuff for us as well.

    I know that the content is going to get harder as the course progresses. I will try to update later in case some of you are wondering what it will be like when you take the class. Enjoy your summer!

    I know these posts are from last year, but i'm still hoping someone will see it and reply. Does anyone know how you calculate your teas score into points on the ranking sheet?
