So I just started my ADN program on the 23rd of this month. Was kinda freaked out but I made it through the fist week still alive. We have so much reading to do it's crazy, but i already expected that, I started putting key terms and everything on flash cards.....lets just say i'm already almost at 200 for just the first week. But anyways my week was good overall just wonder how everyone else's was. O I just found out my clinical instructor is a NP and she helped deliver my baby who is now 20months old...lol crazy right??? Tell me about your first day or week of school!!

I started on the 23rd, too - we have our first test tomorrow and yes, we have had quite a lot of reading! I'm going to go over all of my notes tonight, and then again tomorrow during my break.

We don't start clinicals until the end of September. I am excited, but probably more nervous about my first clinical than I am about anything else. I've read so many horror stories about horrible clinical instructors on here.

well i don't start my clinicals until the 2nd week in October after skills testing. And as for my instructor, she was an excellent nurse when i was prego so if she teaches anything like that she'll be great. @ guiltysins if you haven't got your books yet go get them because most nursing programs expect that you you read that weeks information already, at least i know mine did, so use this last week wisely !!!

My first week went great. So far my instructors seem sweet, nice and helpful. I love what I am learning. We do have lots of tests and assignments but you know what it is worth it, that is the only way we can learn and become successful nurses. I work well under pressure it prepares me for reality and it has helped me alot. Nothing is easy.

Good luck to all of you, just believe in yourself, study hard, and ask questions if you don't understand something. Relax and avoid negative people before you take a test, that way your anxiety will go away.

I remember when I was typing in a thread similar to this a year ago when I first started school. A year later and I'm still here, after much stress, heartache, and near change of major. Hanging on with 5 As and 2 Bs so far. 2 semesters down...5 more to go! :eek:

As far as my first week my second year in: great so far. Trying to keep up with my reading - so far so good. We'll see what happens next week after my Foley catheter check-off and when the grades start coming in. Don't forget about clinicals!

I started the 23rd as well!

My first week was just crazy! They had us there every day of the week (we're generally only supposed to be there 4 days/week) at crazy hours and for super long days...and they wasted no time getting right into things! I've had a lot of reading, and my first test was this morning and my first competency for lab is on Wednesday.

We don't start clinicals til the first week of October, but we go over to the hospital for the first time next week.
