    Just curious if everyone was able to get their peer checkoffs for dressing changes. I was not too happy when I went up on Tuesday to practice and overheard 2nd semester students saying that they thought lab was going to be closed on Thurs./Fri. because I was planning to go back up on Friday. So I went to Ms. Irwin and she confirmed that it would be closed, so I went and changed the white boards because they had not been updated. I guess we really need to stay on top of things because there is a definate LACK of communication.

    Wishing us all the best for our checkoffs!

    I am going up to lab this afternoon and will be avalable if any one needs peer checkoffs for next week. Last year I found a blog that was good Confessions of a Student Nurse. She is now currently a nurse and working in the Dallas area.
    Happy Friday

    There is an official HESI study guide in the library that they will let you look at. Just ask for the HESI study guide and they will let you borrow it in the library, and you can make copies. That's what I did, and it was pretty good. I never found anything else. Good luck getting into the program. :wink2:

    I'm going to be in the lab on Monday practicing catheterization. If anyone still needs a check-off, or just want to practice let me know.

    success camp....

    it was so great getting to meet the other 30 faces today!:spin:

    i did however think it was funny that we are so incredibly creatures of habit. when it came to lunch time we kind of stayed with our groups of 10. i am sure that will all be changing soon.

    looking forward to many days to come with each and every one of you.

    Yes, it was very nice seeing everyone today! Starting this week we will all be together for our lecture, which is nice to see so many faces. :spin:
    I also thought is was funny how we all grouped into our skills lab groups, but soon we will have new groups of 10 so that we can get to know a new set of people!
    Look forward to seeing you all again Tuesday.

    how is everyone "loving" this reading? i am so over this reading and we are just through the first week! i guess this is where life ends until graduation. i just finished last weeks reading and am now starting on this weeks,...i had to take a break.

    i am going to read every word for now and see how i do on the first test; and then adjust from there.

    see y'all soon,

    Hello everyone! First let me say congrats on getting into the program. You will not find a group of more supportive and understanding nursing instructors anywhere. I have been in the nursing program since fall 06 (graduate in December). A few words of advice. Don't stress about the reading too much. You do not have to comprehend every single word. Secondly, get yourself a good NCLEX review book. I suggest Saunders as it comes with a CD that you can pop in your computer and do thousands of practice questions. While they are not exactly the same questions the teachers will be using, they are very similar. A big part of nursing is learning how to be a good test taker. Also, don't worry about what they say about working full time. I have been doing this since the beginning and I still have a high GPA! remember, only you know what you are truly capable of. If you have any questions PM or email me and I will be glad to offer advice! :spin:

    I'm so glad to see that the BHC Nursing students are on here. I'm still working on my core classes. I'll be completly done with all of them by next fall ('08) and look foward to nursing school. I really want to go to Brookhaven, so I will do my best to do well on my HESI and study hard.

    Good luck to all of you starting out! I look forward to reading about your journies!

    Hey's Robin Mowery. I FINALLY found this thing. Gosh. Anyways, just wanted to introduce myself to the group. Now that we have all know eachother for like 7 months now. hahah. feel free to add me to your buddy lists and be sure to tell me who you are. I dont recognize you by your screen name thingy.
    By the way--thanks Josh for the great advice. I think I met you once when we were both studying at the library for like HOURS. Ok....Hi everyone and bye everyone. I am going to bed. I cannot believe we are off to clinicals in like a couple of weeks. EEEEEEK! too cool.
