    leaving teaching what measurements do you suggest i memorize
    Quote from futurenurse809
    for example 1 foot=12 inches

    don't memorize any conversions. you get a conversion sheet. you can use it until cardio. by then, you'll know it from the many math test and from doing conversions in clinicals.

    I Start the program on Monday and was wondering if anyone knows the exact books that we'll be needing? Some students have said that they barely used all the books that is included in that bundle package they told us to buy. I have yet to buy my books and i need some feedback plz and thank you! :wink2:

    Leaving-

    In a typical lecture class (at North campus), I would be bringing:

    A notebook, pens
    my fundamentals book
    Jarvis book
    Cox book
    Clinical skills book
    Lecture slides
    modules

    Is that right? I'm trying to see if the bag I have can fit all my stuff.

    a notebook, pens yes
    my fundamentals book don't need during lecture. only if studying before or afterwards.
    jarvis book you'll need this during campus lab days and clinicals.
    cox book you only use this for care plans. put it on your bookshelf and dust it off in a few weeks.
    clinical skills book you need this on lab days.
    lecture slides yes, read them before class. i like to right directly on the notes then, type it all together later.
    modules i only use these when studying.

    is that right? i'm trying to see if the bag i have can fit all my stuff.
    i carried a lot in my bag. i got one with wheels on it and just left everything in it. so, i was always prepared.

    North Campus. but since financial aid only gave me $550 for fall i was stuck to pay out of pocket and now I can't barely afford to get my books on time

    sorry to hear that stephy. i hope you can work something out to get your books.

    this is a copy and paste of what leavingteaching posted about the books we need for first semester @ north:

    i only used the following during my first semester:

    process i
    the modules (a packet in the bookstore) - i answered the objectives to study for the test.

    fundamentals book - must have, will use for process i & ii. don't buy the fundamentals study guide. it doesn't have any critical thinking questions, just fill in the blank low level questions.

    skills book - must have, will use for process i, ii, gi/gu, ortho/neuro, cardio

    jarvis physical assessment pocket companion - will use the entire program, great to learn how to appropriately assess.

    cox clinical care plan book - will use to write careplans. used once at end of process one and then, used
    in every class throughout program.

    process ii
    lab kit - overpriced with outdated equipment, but mandatory

    davis drug guide - either the book or an electronic program on palm pilot or phone

    fluid & electrolyte made easy - a great supplement to understand f & e

    plus all of the books from process i

    pharm
    lilley study guide

    packet

    you don't need the pharm book.



    some students use the fundamental success and/or test success books. however, i didn't use any of those type of supplements.
    i'll be at north campus, too.

    you say you carried a lot in your bag- did you have stuff in there that i didn't mention? did you carry stuff in there you didn't need for class (like fundamentals book, etc)? from what you said i need and don't need from my list, it doesn't seem like too much.

    i plan on having stuff in my car so i can study and whatnot when i'm on campus. i'm just trying to limit what i bring to class. so then it seems i need my notebook, pens, and lecture slides on mon and fri, and for clinical/lab days i need my skills book, jarvis book, and whatever supplies i am told to have with me (stethoscope, pen light, etc). right? (i'm sleepy, so i am making sure i am trying to get this, lol).

    yes. for lecture, you only need lecture notes, pen, paper. for campus lab, you'll need the skills book, stethoscope, pen light, jarvis book, worksheets (they'll tell you what to bring), etc.

    I'm going to North, but its possible they are making everyone come in on one day for an orientation. Don't you also have an orientation on Monday for lecture? Maybe you can ask then while on campus.

    yes I do have an orientation for lecture

    I will ask the professor on Monday because I would really hate to be at school by 6 30 both days
