I can't believe the semester is almost over! Overall I am happy with my program...however, a month ago our original instructor had a baby. So we were combined with another campus & a different instructor who I must say has got to be the absolutely worst instructor I have ever experienced. She literally reads the book to us....that's it. Nothing more, nothing less....paragraph by paragraph she reads to us. And then.....the test questions, are nothing from the book.
Since we got to spend over 2 months with our original instructor, I think we were spoiled by the fact that she actually taught us instead of reading to us. We learned all of our skills from her & we're doing well. We had 6 students out of 30 drop out. There are a few more on the borderline of not passing---especially now that we have that awful instructor.
Clinicals are going well...the one thing I find discouraging about that is when you go the night before to do research on your patient, then spend a few hours looking up the meds they are on & developing nursing care plans
----only to show up the next morning to find they've been discharged. The instructor is happy to give us a new patient, but we get no credit for the work we put together the night before. Oh well.....I won't complain.
3 more weeks until the semester is over......sigh!!!!!
