What is your First semester schedule?

  1. Hi, I am trying to get an idea of how much time will actually be spent at school. I know the class schedule at my future school but not the lab time. Please share your weekly school schedule. Thanks in advance.

    Monday through Thursday I have Pathophyiology, Pharmacology, Fundamentals, and Health Assessment. All are mostly 3 hour classes at one sitting... We might get a 5 or 10 minute break here and there IF we're lucky.

    Mondays--Lecture 9-4 with a 1 hour break (Patho I & Aging)
    Tuesdays--Lecture 9-3 with a 2 hour break (Health Promo & Fundamentals)
    Wednesdays--Lecture 9-11 (Assessment)
    Thursdays--Lab 10-12, Seminar 1-3 (Assessment, Fundamentals)
    Friday--Clinical 8-12 (Fundamentals)

    Lectures were 2-3 hours long, once a week, and a break about halfway through that varied in length depending on the teacher. I'm really not a fan of the once a week thing but its how the school set things up so I deal with it. I have 4 hour lectures this semester.

    I'm in the first semester of a 5 semester BSN program. We are only doing CNA stuff and assessments in the hospital this semester.

    I'm taking Health Assessment, Pharmacology, and Pathophysiology. We took Intro to nursing concepts (CNA) as a prereq.

    On Wednesday, we have Health Assessment clinical in the hospital from 7-11:30 then Pharm Lab 1-4.

    Health Assessment Class/Lab Th 1-4.

    Patho and Pharm classes Fr 8-12 and 1-4 respectively.

    Monday - Optional Simulation Lab class from 11-3
    Tuesday Theory/Process - 8-12:30
    Wednesday Off
    Thursday - Pharm/Skills 8-2:45
    Friday - Pre-Clinical 7-4 actual clinicals will be from 5:30 -2:30

    They say on top of this you'll need to study independently for 25-30 hours per week to be successful.

    My nursing classes only would be:
    Monday- Clinical 2-10pm
    Tuesday- Pharm. 9:25-10:15am, Chapel 10:45-11:35, Foundations 11:45-1:00
    Thursday- Pharm. 9:25-10:15am, Chapel 10:45-11:35, Foundations 11:45-1:00pm, Found. Lab 1:30-4:20

    But I also have Physiology lecture and lab (MWF 11-11:50 & Tuesday 2-5) and two online classes which are required for the bachelors degree.

    You all have no idea how much I appreciate this information. I think I'm leaning towards attending the program part time. I wish you all well in your programs!

    Block 2 guy here so this is my schedule.

    Tuesday - 0900-1100 Lecture - Nursing Transitions III
    1200-1500 Lecture - Pharmacology
    Wednesday- 1100-2100 Clinical
    Thursday 0900-1500 Skills Lab
    Friday 0900-1100 Lecture Nursing Transitions III

    Plus we need to log at least 2 hours for each new skill we learn in the skills lab outside of Thursday. I work part time (22 hours a week) so trying to fit in working, school and studying can be hard. Hope this helps.
