Hi all... Just applied to TRCC for Fall '05, if you have any info/advice, I'd love to hear it. Thanks
Three Rivers has a great program. Be prepared to work hard... It can be frustrating and a bit overwhelming at first, but as the weeks pass you will find yourself just doin' it, as opposed to wondering HOW you will do it.
You can expect your week to be just as Rob said it would be. The upside is, you'll be well
prepared for your second year.
In your second year, you'll not be going to the hospital the night before a clinical to get your pt info. You will be getting all that good stuff in report, the morning of your clinical.
The careplans can be long, and are a lot of work. They are also invaluable tools in that they help you hone your assessment skills, and help you learn a way of looking at the bigger picture when planning your pt care. And save 'em all....you'll use those med pages over and over. Think of it as building your own little data base.
Some advice ... take it as it comes, one bite at a time. Try your hardest not to fall behind, 'cause stuff'll snowball on ya... Keep your eyes forward and no matter what anyone throws at you, meet it with a "bring it on" attitude. Enjoy
the challenge...time will fly!
