How do you get 1238 for input for #20? I get 1475mL. Is that wrong?
For tuition only I would say its just over $6000. Ivy Tech offers a lot of financial aid and scholarships as well.
Uniform House did all the patches and everything from Indy. I'm kinda confused about the uniform thing. Can anyone at Indy clarify? For Fun. Lab, we can wear street clothes but just have to wear the lab coat? OR we can wear the whole uniform? What about Fundamentals and Pharm? Do we have to wear the uniform to those classes?
I picked up the Pharm book for a little bit but decided not to spend too much time because I didn't know for sure what we would need for the first week. I didn't want to study the wrong stuff. I've been reading mostly out of the Fundamentals book. I was surprised to find it an easy read, and actually interesting for a text book.
I have tossed around the idea of a study group, but I've always found that study groups are a huge distraction for me because they tend to go off topic quite a bit. I'll have to see what the people in class are like before I know if that's something that will work for me or not.
Thanks for the pointers!! And yeah.....that Med Surg book is massive!
Oh Man. I have a feeling the reading is going to be impossible to keep up with. For next week in Pharm alone, we are doing Chapters 1-4 and 6.
I wonder what the reading for the other classes will be like!!
yep! I was just talking to a friend of mine and told him my schedule, his response ... "talk to ya in 2 years" It's sad, but kinda true, and it's nice when you do have a friend that realizes the commitment that this is. Im sick of the ones that are always b!%@hin' that you never call and never have time. oh well, im sure i'll make new friends lol! (ones that don't mind hearin about all the crap we did that day...well just call it 'studying')
hee hee...yep it's a different book, Focus on Nursing Pharmacology 4e.
Bioterrorism??? Wouldn't think that be in the front of the book, the author must be a little paranoid.
Dannelboo....can you tell us if we need to memorize all of the assessments and interventions for toxic effects of drugs in chapter 3, for pharm? If so, I'd loveeee to have that done before school starts! Thanks!
Good luck on the surgery! Hopefully it all goes smooth and you don't have to miss anything.
Side note: Did we have to have a BP cuff at Indy? I didn't notice if so, so I need to get one!
I got my stethoscope at the IT Bookstore. I got a Littmann lightweight and it was 50 bucks. I was able to charge it to my financial aid.
I have started reading the Pharm also. Seems like a LOT of memorization but I'm trying not to freak about it.
HI!! Just to let you guys know.....teachers will post their syllabi on blackboard a several days before school starts...so really, anytime. You will be printing A LOT, so be sure to stock up on printer ink. The teachers post most everything on blackboard--they don't hand much out in class. This includes powerpoints, notes, syllabus, study guides, etc. You will also be doing a couple of discussion boards, so it is a good idea to get in the habit of checking blackboard daily.
It is a good idea to start the reading for Pharm. Pharm is taken in best if you don't do it in huge chunks....do a couple pages at a time and let it soak in. Come back to it and do some more. Even if you are at work and only have 15 minutes...read a little Pharm. You will get powerpoints to go with the chapters. In order to pass the tests, you WILL have to read the book.
Another book to start looking through is the atlas. You will study almost everything in that book in medsurg.
Good luck to everyone as you start your wonderful journey!
Thank you Sharrie, as for the other replies you obviously are not training/trained nurses as you would show compassion and thoughtfulness. I came on this site for assistance not sarcasm - I wont bother again!!!
I think it is up to the individual. If you hate online classes, then it probably isn't for you. I took Pharm in person, but wish I had taken it online. A friend of mine took it online and received an A without much effort. I worked my behind off for a B. For me, I don't think the online class would have been harder than going in person. You get more time for quizzes in the online class and of course, you can use your book for them.
I checked labs all over the place and couldn't get what I needed for nursing school. I had to go to my docs office and have it done there. I don't know what it costs because for some reason I never received a bill for it. Lucky me!
I am in the same boat! Have you taken the required IVY class? Are you planning on furthering your education and work towards your BSN? Are you in the ASN program at Ivy Tech?
If you are interested in a BSN down the road, there are classes you can take at Ivy Tech that will transfer to IUPUI. I added an econ 101 class to take me to full-time. There are other options as well, which I can email to you if you are interested. That way you will have a list of classes to take if you need a few extra hours and then you won't have to worry about taking them later!
The Richmond campus requires us to buy uniforms from the bookstore, but they run really, really small and they can't get any larger sizes from their new supplier. I saw on some postings that others of you from other campujses are getting Ivy Tech scrubs from places like the Uniform House. I went to their website, but they require a user name and password to order. Is this something you have to get from the school? I thought I might try to order from there if the pants are similar in color.
