Ok, school's not that bad for me so far. The next 3 weeks I think will make or break a lot of people. Here's what it looks like.
For our Seminar(legal/basis) course, we are covering the theory foundation of Nursing practice, Professional nursing roles, then our 1st (of 2) exams covering everything we've covered so far.
For our lecture in our intro to nursing class, we have 3 weeks of online-only content that we are responsible for. (watching videos/lectures/visiting websites/etc.) When we come back, on same day as seminar test, we have test over ALL online content(and only 50?s so who know what they'll ask...)
Then we cover Growth/development/loss/death/greiving all on same day....
For Lab, we have to do ALL demos required by clinical start(10/13).
We do Documentation, Radiology, & Imagery next week. On the 6th we have our lab test over ALL our lab content, and have to do "well elderly interviews with LTC volunteers that are coming out to campus". Then on the 13th, we start clincals....at least we're not doing those along with everything else!!
So, it's going to be a busy 3 weeks for sure, everyone's going to need to find time. At least I'm not working yet, but once I start, mornings will be heavy schoolwork, 4-12 will be work, and then class times as well.....
WHEW! Ok, so I'm of the arguement that it takes a lot of time but if you put in the work, it should translate over to the classroom.
