mestiza81 i just checked after reading your post, and i have no problem saving and opening the 4 files in the course information section of our assessment class. those being syllabus, schedule, power pts 4, power pts 5.
hope this info helps, if not ask more questions!
The format for pharm can be different for different sections. I took the class online with the rest of the nights and weekends section. Some of the day sections had it online, others were hybrid, and others had it on campus and met like a regular class. So how you take the class may depend on which section you are in.
you get into the night/weekend program based on your application points and like miss whitney said the higher your points the better. there are 24 seats for the night/weekend program. so lets say the top 24 (highest points) people all want nights/weekend program then thats it. there is only one schedule for the night program so no need for the lottery. the only time you do the lottery is when you actually pick your schedule for the day program.
This is soo scary to me now! I haven't studied anything (Med Term, D. Calc, IV Calc, etc.). Only the handbook. I don't have my iClicker. I don't have my books. I don't have my skills kit. I'm in full panic mode, not because I want to be. I don't have the $$$.
I "stalked" financial aid enough for them to put an estimated award on my record. This held my classes. Whoohooo! But as far as books, they have to do some type of verification to complete my aid so I can get a book voucher. At this point, I have some books available for LOAN until I'm able to get my own books. So, I will have books for class. I just don't have them now, and I would have loved to spend the weekend getting familiar with the courses
I am trying to organize myself and I have a question for all of you already in the program or any of you starting with me that may know.
Is Dosage Calc and IV calc taught in our Nursing Techniques class?
Is Medical Terminology taught in our Nursing Concepts class?
Yea, I was hoping changes had been made to Section 11 & the 6-9pm class. Is Term 2 a lottery schedule also?
If you're interested in community mental health you might try working with the FACT Team. It stands for Florida Assertive Community Treatment. They have them in areas all over Florida. It may be difficult to get a lot of information about them on the internet because most don't have websites. I believe they originated with the company I work for which is Renaisance Behavioral Health Services (RBHS) but someone can correct me if I'm wrong about that. I work for them in Jacksonville but I work at a crisis center, but not as a nurse I'm in nursing school. I work in emergency services very closely with the nurses.
On another note I used to work in mental health in Pennsylvania before I moved to Florida and I was absolutely shocked at the difference in services between the two states. It's VERY different down here. It may be different in other parts of the state but we have some very sick people here and there are almost no services for them. They are managed mostly by the FACT Teams in the community. If you want to PM me I can give you the information to contact RBHS about FACT Team positions.
okay, would anyone like to discuss this iclicker thingy that we need for term 1?
Where can we get the holder for the id and CPR card?
Ok here's the deal with the ID. You need it for clinicals. It's considered part of your uniform. It's so hospital staff can identify you. You will need to get a little plastic holder for it because you also have to carry your CPR card with you at all times. I just stick both in the little plastic holder and put my lunch money in between the two. You don't know this yet but you can't bring your purse or anything to clinicals with you. You have to carry everything on you.
And to the person who said she can't take her earrings out...... I hope they are studs because we are not allowed to wear more than one pair of earrings and they have to be studs. No hoops or dangly ones or anything. The only other jewelry we are allowed to wear is a plain wedding band. And if you have a visible tattoo you have to cover it up. It's all in the handbook you got with your packet. And they will go over it in orientation.
Now, here is the caveat to all of this-we now have an interim Director of Nursing. There is no telling how many changes she will implement right off the bat. I know Pharm is going hybrid and concepts is a hybrid class (my group screamed the loudest about the concepts class being online). Assessment will never be online, too much hands on needed.
Let me know if you have other questions.
My aren't we cynical?
How in the world did you get your uniform already!?!?!? Dang!!!
Oh and you may want to get a watch that is plastic and water resistant. Your gloves don't always cover your watch and I have come home from clinicals and felt the need to disinfect mine. Can you imagine the kinds of bacteria that could be on there after dealing with sick patients all day? Some people have watches that attach to their stethoscope too.
my vote is nude color, at least that is what I bought for myself. And no thongs! lol wearing white is like wearing a white bra under a white shirt. I am just going to have to make sure I am not wearing my supergirl panties! lmao
