Try this website: www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/tutorials

So many specific diseases, conditions, treatments. It often helps me if I can hear the concept from someone other than my instructors.

Good Luck!

I'm an LPN in the RN program, but I'm NOT looking forward to the OB/GYN rotation again. I usually got good grades in the LPN program, and "A's" in the RN as well, but I CANNOT BEND MY HEAD AROUND OB. They start talking about +1 and +2 and percent effaced, and my mind just starts broadcasting "white noise" like an empty TV channel. I can't see it, I can't visualize it, I sure as **** can't touch it on my lab partner, and my mind just goes "REJECT!"

And that's next semester....oh, joy....

Wow ! I love OB that was my favorite subject. LOVE IT ! LOVE IT ! LOVE IT... For some reason that was the class that did come so natural for me. Even though I don't have kids. :heartbeat:redbeathe

I don't think I'll ever understand the whole isotonic, hypo/hypertonic solution thing, and when to use what. :( It's so completely backwards and confusing sometimes. I hate it!

i hated the eyes and ears. not that i didn't grasp it, it was so boring that i don't think i wanted to pay attention. the only way i got through it was to make up study sheets and then memorize, and use stupid acronyms, sayings and mnemonics. i ended up with an A!

you'll get there. just believe that you will get the concepts no matter what--because you will, even if you have to memorize them or say them outloud and repeat them to yourself.

all the best to you. :)

Is it possible that it's the teacher and not you?

I know, in my case, my micro instructor was so busy 'teaching' us on the PhD level

that it just was too much, too deep and way over my head.

Thank God, I finally got up the courage to drop and keep my 4.0 GPA intact.

YES! We got new books for med/surg this year and they read like a dictonary! It is so boring and really hard to understand and no matter how many times we read the chapters it doesnt get any easier. Our instructer seems to think that its not the book but she also informed us that the test scores for our college in med/surg have gone down and there are 3 of the exact same colleges in towns around this area. I would rather take anatomy over again then have to deal with this book. I have come to the conclusion that we are a week from finals and only one semester away from graduating so i'm going to do my best and try and stick it out.
