Class has started....

  1. They gave us our packet today. It is about 2-3 inches thick. However, it does contain some of the power points that we will be going over in class (3 slides to a page) and the syllabus. it also contained such things as how and what we will be graded on and when it is due.

    We then had a "class" on test taking skills and how to study.

    We have much reading to do! The first test is a week from tomorrow. It is one of the math tests.

    Anyone else get started today?

    I start on the 21st. We have a three hour intro to the nursing program. I'm really excited about it. I didn't think I was going to get into the nursing program where I've gone to college for 2 years.
    So far, it's been really expensive with the books and equipment and all. I'm ready to graduate and get to nursing. Isn't that sad?
    Any advice for the students out there???

    Good Luck Det01... A fellow Arkansan hehe

    I start back on the 18th, for my FINAL semester.. I am so excited... Our first test is on the 21st in ICU.. That should be a great way to get things started...

    Don't let things overwhelm (sp?) you... It will do that at first, but just remember it is very doable.... And yes, you can still have a life... I am still able to cook dinner (maybe not gourmet), and I still manage to have a life.... Just be prepared everyday for the next days lectures, and you will be fine..

    and ENJOY Nursing school!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It can be fun if you let it, you will make some great friends..
