Community College in Rochester NY:
Each semester is team taught, so its one group of instructors for each semester. They rotated who did which lectures. Always the same clinical instructor during the semester, and the same conference teacher as well (Conference is the same as lab on campus). We learned fundamentals--
nursing process, core concepts, nursing philosophy, and then studied different things like body mechanics and hygeine, infection control, sleep, respiratory, basic pharmaceutical information, bowel and bladder elimination, cultural issues, safety issues, decubitus wounds and skin care, probably some other stuff I can't pull out of my head just now. Oh yeah, math and calculations lol. Can't forget that!
Skills wise, we learned ADL's, bed baths, transferring patients bed to chair etc, mouth care, foot care, IM, ID, and SQ injections, passing and documenting meds, all types of wound care, straight caths and foley caths, hanging IV bags and regulating, wound care, sterile gloves, documentation and nurse's notes and the basics of a Nurse Process Paper. We did a LOT of data collection. Also we did Inspection, Auscultation, Palpation and percussion, breath sounds, assessments head to toe mostly. We did eye and hearing assessments which was fun.
We cared once a week for a pt in an LTC. This was morning care, ADL's, and med passing.Not everyone passed meds every day, it depended on how your clinical instructor set it up.
Looking back, I realize that it was the very basics of nursing and I encourage you to really work to learn this stuff. Once I internalized much of what they were teaching in first semester, I found that it was much easier.
