Spill -

I'm gonna try and pick my MCP patient the first week also. We may only have 2 weeks of Peds, and MAYBE a 3rd...she's not sure. So, to be safe, I'm planning on it now. What form did you use to collect info for the MCP? She said she'd provide us with it this week, but I'd like to have it ahead of time so I can collect all the data I need.

skim through and do the study guide at the same time....at least you get some type of other stimulus. lol (Not just staring at a book non-stop.)

Good idea. I have looked at the lecture notes, handouts, and Evolve study questions but I guess I forgot about the actual Study Guide. I'll try that. I am just having trouble picking out the main ideas to be studied. Thanks.

Yang--- its the same Health HX from last semester w/ the indepth Assessment.

-you can print it out from Ecampus in your clinical handbook area, or you can copy it or tear it out of your syllabus.

To focus for your first test: remember Meds pub for communication questions, and there is a book I used, to help me focus and study, (which I think we have told you about before, so forgive me if we did). I really recommend it, it is called : Fundamentals Success , it will help you all through first semester.

Thanks Spill....I wasn't sure if it was the same or not....it seems so non applicable to children, but I guess if that particular part doesn't apply, we just write N/A. I just want to get through it lol

UM, I think the group that is doing Peds first is using the form we went over in seminar- that is the form you will use for your MCP I heard. You don't use the form in the clinical handbook.

You may want to double check that.

Thats the form we use for all Pedi careplans....something has to be different for the major, right?? I'm so stressed about this stupid thing.... I'll just take both and get all the info I can.

Thanks Spill!

I can't help it....I stress and then that drives me to perform better. I just would feel better if I knew what info I needed, and didn't have to speculate. Thanks for the encouragement though...it helps too!

In the seminar, she said the major was basically the same as the one we went over with a few extras. I hope she gives us the extras before we start the day.

How is peds going?

I worked L & D this past week and it was the best day I've ever had in clinical! I loved it! I"m thinking I may want to do that when I become an RN. I saw 2 C-Sect, 2 Vag, and 2 Tubals!!!! Not to mention all the things that were going on in between all that all day! It was awesome!

I was originally thinking I might want to do OR, then I thought maybe NICU, but now I'm all about L & D.

Good luck on test 1 this week, ours is on Tues morning! I haven't prepared as well as I should be- but I will cram it all in on Monday :spin:

I'm excited to do L&D - I've always loved that. Peds has been good - but they really are different little critters to take care of from a nursing perspective. I got to do one day in the Ped ICU which was fabulous. However, 30 minutes into the shift, my baby tried to crater on us. He did fine though, but I got to restrain while they were bagging him and getting the docs in and stuff....stressful, but really interesting.

Hope L&D is busy for me!
