I am starting my 4th Semester, Leadership, on Monday at MDC. Just curious if any old MDC Alum's could tell me what to expect?

I did the nursing program online (I was in the Bridge Program) last year but I think that Leadership is the same for all. You can expect to be more on your own. You will still have a preceptor, but you will be given more responsibility. You may start off with one patient, then two then, then three until you are taking care of all of your preceptor's patients. This is only if you are on a med-surg floor. If you are assigned to a unit or a specialty department like the ER, your assignments will be different. Also you will have to do the following:

1. Make a journal entry that outlines what you did in clinical due weekly.

2. Choose to do a project that will give you either an A, B or C in the class. They will give you more details on this. The project is due at the end of the semester.

3. You will have to do a certain number of NCLEX style questions each week. You can either use an NCLEX book or ATI questions. A print out of the questions completed are due each week.

4. You may have to do a group project that focuses on leadership.

I hope this helps. Good Luck.
