Jun 6, '04Joined: May '04; Posts: 153; Likes: 5*IF* I get accepted this is the schedule listed in the catalog:
A&PI, Funds. of Nursing, Health Assessment, Pharm, and Psych for a total of 15 hrs... thank goodness I've already had the Psych class so that helps a little cutting it to 12 hrs.
Jun 7, '04Joined: Jun '04; Posts: 141; Likes: 56Science & Technology of Nursing Lecture, 4 hrs. wk.
Sci & Tech of Nursing Discussion, 1 hr. wk.
Application of Sci & Tech Nurs. (clinical at hospital) 1 day per wk
Application of Sci & Tech Nurs. Lab, 4 hrs. wk.
Application of Sci & Tech Nurs. Recitation, 4 hrs. wk.
It's kinda like you get the lecture, you discuss the topic, you practice the techniques, you perform for the profs, and then you use it in a real life setting, and all the math, concepts, and techniques are covered under the heading Science & Technology of Nursing. At least for the 1st semester of clinicals. My classes are 4 days a week, 4-7 hours a day, and we get a whole 7 credits for the fall semester!!!!!!! AAARRRGH! There goes my financial aid for the next year...thank God my advisor told me to take 17 credits a semester for the past 2 years to get everything except clinicals out of the way (sarcasm)...now I can't be considered full time. Oh, well, I may appreciate that in the next 2 years when I am stressed enough with the classes I will have....

Jul 12, '04Occupation: Burn ICU Nurse Specialty: 1 year(s) of experience in Burn ICU ; Joined: Mar '04; Posts: 91I'll be taking A&P I, Chemistry, Intro to Nursing, & Health Promotion. I'm actually thinking about dropping the Health Promotion. I don't want to take on too much my 1st semester back to school. For those who already took these classes, what do you guys think? Should I keep the class or drop it?
Keep in mind that I'll be working about 30 hours a week.

Jul 12, '04Joined: Sep '03; Posts: 6,885; Likes: 12,485From the fall through mid April of 2005 I will be rotating through 8-week courses (class & clinical) in each of the specialties: peds, psych, critical care and OB. We've been assured that all of them are 16 weeks worth of material crammed into 8 weeks. By later this month I should know the schedule of when I'll be doing each of them.
Good luck to all!
