Well, as far as RN school, i dont know what to tell you about the courses. I am in LVN school and I have to tell you that absolutely, pharmacology reeeeeeally sucked! Then again, I guess you guys will have a little longer than 3 months to learn it. But I dont know if that would have made a difference or not. Its just difficult to memorize basically the whole drug book-but not impossible. Good luck to all of you.

hello. i'm new to this. i will be starting nursing school in august and i was wondering if i could get some feedback as far as what to expect my first semester/year. from what i've heard is that the first semester is the hardest.

thanks

congratulations for pursuing the wonderful field of nursing, just remember to hold tight to your dreams, it will be very rough and you will be discouraged easily. dont give in to the pressure, just keep your eyes on the vision. you will be faced with a huge academic challenge, your whole life will suddenly change and the stress will be enormous. but the end result is so worth it, you will be allowed to make so many positive chages in peoples lives, and you will be so richly rewarded. good luck and the best too you.

Congrats! My advice, since you asked, is to form a study group of 3-4 people who all pledge not to discuss their love life, work, family, etc. but will just study. My group all made high grades and I attribute it to the fact we got together once a week, test or no test, and hashed out the information. If you can explain something to another person then you really do know the topic. Good luck and keep us informed.

Hi, Congrats to everyone who got accepted in their schools.

I am reapplying for the 4th time, but this time I am applying to about 7 schools in hopes of getting accepted to. I was just wondering if anyone knows the best way to start studying for the pharmacology. What is the best book to buy, how do you accurately study for it, and are there other classes which need a jump start before the semester begins.

again, congratulations to all future nursing students :hatparty:

welcome to nursing!!! i am sorry, but i do not agree, but do not worry. the hardest part is getting in to nursing school. just stay focused and you will do fine. i have been a nurse for almost 10 years and i love it. i could not see myself doing anything else. even though nursing school is hard, the rewards are so great that it makes the sacrifice well worth while. good luck!!!! kris.

But enough about me.

If you leave your personal life at home/ out of you soon to become fulltime professional life...you'll make it. However if you mix all that personal $#!t up in your school life(be that listen to someone else gripe about relationship stuff or trying to help a friend get her life back on track after his/her sweetheart broke theirs), then you will be setting yourself up for possible failure.

(me, I made an "A" in Pharm..that was the original topic and I didn't find it all that difficult. I took in last month(27 days of june to be exact) along with Assessment(27 days also) and Patho(its a 12 week course). I am currently taking therapeutics/clinicals and Nursing research (both for 27 days) and finishing up Patho.

I am in the accelerated BSN program at TWU. 13 maddening months of pure adrenaline rushing mahem. The classes are challeneging, informative and educational, but they are not hard per se. If you studiend / understood the prereq. classes and had a genuine understanding about how the systems of the body interact, you've got half the battle won. The other poster was right, the hardest part of nursing school IS getting in. After that...its a piece of cake......

first of all, CONGRATULATIONS, for being accepted into nursing school. It does hold true for some that the 1st semester is the hardest, because believe me, they actually weed people out...YES, I said they weed people out! Some of us were lucky to not be weeded out, and what I mean by that is what everyone else has stated...Leave your personal life in the parking lot, keep issues to yourself, and don't allow anyone else to drain you with theirs either... A many students failed worried about their "man". About Pharm, I took it a short amount of time in the summer, and I made a B, how I did that, and thank GOD for HIS insight, I made up flash cards. Also in your first year, you will be expected to know how to write a careplan, specifically suiting the needs of your patients you chose at the hospital. I just gave another future nursing school student a write out on how to do just that, using an example of a particular drug that a patient may be taking for a particular condition and formulated that information into an "A" careplan. If you can do that in your first clinical experience, you will be hardly weeded out, got it... God Bless all of us. Keep posting.

Just picked up my books for the Fall semester. I'm taking 18 hours this semester so hang on to your wigs and your false teeth. It should be interesting to say the least. The great thing this semester will be that the folks in the accelerated program wil be mixed in with the "general population" so this will mean a larger IQ pool from which to draw study partners(read more hot looking chicks to drool over):p :coollook: .
