Question about nursing curriculums

  1. I am a junior year nursing student. I was just wanting to know how many of you guys struggled with med-surgII. I also want to know what classes such as OB and Peds will be like compared to med surg. Thanks for any input

    OB & Peds are so much fun! It is such a different atmosphere. I was more relaxed in my OB & Peds rotation. I felt it was more of a learning experience/observation experience. I didn't feel like the pressure was on me to perform new skills like there was in Med/Surg. I really liked my rotations in both, but I still did not want to be a nurse in either of those areas. I ended up choosing Ortho . Have fun with those rotations.

    Alot of the students I graduated with struggled with MSII and some even dropped, even more struggled with cardiac, and even more dropped...... I feel that OB wasn't bad since I had a baby the preceeding year, and had read every book insight. Peds wasn't bad because i was raising a kid.
    think of it like this.........pediatrics is everything an adult can get but so can a kid. ( that is what my instructor told me) peds was like an advanced med-surg in my school.
