I can mostly figure out what each class is going to cover, but any additional input is appreciated. I know this stuff varies from school to school, I'm just looking for general information. And no, it's not published anywhere yet.
Concepts of Professional Nursing - I'm guessing legal stuff, maybe history of nursing?
Health Assessments - Lecture, Lab and Clinical, I think this one is self evident.
Foundations of Nursing Practice - Lecture, Lab and Clinical, not entirely sure about this one
Pathophysiology - Again, self evident.
Thanks in advance!

I passed fundamentals and it was so hard! I had needed a 85% test average to pass and I made it through with a 86%! I really struggled with this class at the beginning of the semester but after I learned how to study for it I started getting nothing but 90's (B's) on my exams. I basically just read all the PowerPoint, checked my knowledge and any missing details in the ATI book, and nothing but practice questions!
For patho, really know it because I heard Med Surge will not go smoothly for someone who doesnt know their patho. I studied for this class by making a list of all the key concepts such as diseases/disorders and just listed all of their characteristics such as TX, S/SX, etiology, definition, and any defining factors of the disease.
For health assement, it was a cake walk. Just know your med terminology and anatomy for this class and it is self explanatory.
For your intro to practice class, nothing but APA papers and knowing therapeutic communication. Basically, you might have to actually read the book for this class.
Good luck on your 1st semester!
