I took my science classes before I started the nursing program and I'm glad I did it that way. I have classmates who are taking a science class along with nursing classes, but I don't know how it's going for them. When it comes to scheduling in the nursing program there is a lottery, so any other class you take revolves around what days you have nursing classes.

To answer your question, I'm attending CCAC Boyce program in spring of 2010

Are you currently enrolled there or did you get accepted for the spring of 2010.

That's great! Congratulation! Based on your first semester experience, what advice do you have for first semenster students. I hear alot of horror stories, but I think If you do your readings, homework and put the time one should be okay. Am I right?

Your right!

Make sure you practice your dosage calculations. After we took our dosage calc exam, that's when some people never returned.

Do your readings! I always read and take notes. I'm always suprised by classmates who reveal they never do!

Get checked off on your skills by each deadline.

You have to learn how to do a head-to-toe assessment. When the time comes for you to learn that, make sure you practice as much as you can because you'll be tested on it!

Turn in any paperwork that's required to be turned in.

That's it! Just study, read, practice, go to class, get things done by the deadline, and everything will be okay!

Thank you! I am ALWAYS surprised as to how people expect to do well, but do not put the time into their assignments and then act surprised when they fail etc... Are the professors at boyce very helpful?

The 2 instructors *I* have for clinical and skills/assessment are very helpful. I haven't had anyone scream at me yet! My skills instructor is very helpful in answering questions and staying after class. As for clinical, as long as we're prepared, do our vitals, practice assessments, and keep our eyes open for learning opportunities, then we'll be fine with our instructor.

THANK GOD! :yeah: I'm so glad that there's going to be someone else starting at Boyce who actually expects to have to work to get a good grade. I've met several people who expect it to be handed to them on a platter.
