    Hmm -- Yang and I wound up with the one listed as 3-11 before test days. If you have the same instructor, it works out to be 2-10 and she tries to schedule it so that you have the day before a test off. Honestly, I liked it best, but YMMV.

    My biggest plans for the summer? Celebrating my birthday, which I'm headed to do NOW! Woo!

    Happy birthday Jaxia!

    Spill....best of luck in 3rd semester. It is tough, but 77.5 = on to 4th semester. You can do it!

    Just read, read it again, read it over, and read it another time, and other....get the drift?

    I really think that reading the 3rd semester material over and over helps to finally let it sink in.

    Thanks for the birthday wishes


    While trying to keep abreast of stuff this summer, I found a great website that is really helping me study. Flashcarddb is a website that allows you to create flashcards online, and you can even share with other people (or choose to make your cards private, too). One cool thing about the site is that it uses the Leitner System to help you study.

    I haven't been using the online flashcards for long, so I'm not sure how much spaced repetition will actually help me, but it seems like it should.

    If you are interested, here is a link to the cards I have already created. I'm trying to remember to tag all the cards I create with 'nursing' to make them easier for other people to find. Let me know what you think!

    ** edit ** Well, since it won't let me link directly to stuff, here are links:

    Hello everyone!! This is my first time ever posting on this site. I'm a nursing student at nlc and about to start 2nd semester .. i wanted to know if anyone had a second semester syllabus and would kindly let me borrow it ... it would be so much help since ours is not yet posted online and i really want to start reading before the stressful times begin again!!...

    Thanx!! Hope everyone is having a good week!!

    If you will send me a PM, I'll send you the 2nd semester reading list. I don't have the syllabus, sorry.

    Does anyone know how the end of the 4th semester goes? My family is trying to make travel/holiday plans, but I don't know anything about my schedule. Is the exit-HESI a few days after the final? What about the pinning ceremony?

    Are there any other meetings or things to attend to other than the final, hesi and pinning ceremony?

    Is the pinning ceremony a large event? How many people can we invite? Where is it held? Any info would be appreciated!!

    The final is the HESI...can't answer the rest of the questions.

    Summer is coming to a close- boo hoo

    Have you 4th semester people been looking forward to it????

    I know I am ready to get on with this and get finished already!!!!

    It's been a nice long summer vacation- I'm kind of glad that we have some time off- but at the same time it would be nice to be closer to being done.

    Where are you working Fun? I see that you are in your second week of OR. How is it going? Is it everything you imagined?

    It is coming to a fast close! They went up tremendously on 4th semester books. It's ridiculous! I'm ready to have it over with too & today, even Kanora told Jaxia and I that she'd be glad when we graduated (we've been pains in her a$$).

    I say "git 'er done"
