I really thought that the kaplan course helped me pass it gave me the tools to succeed- tons of questions. Also, they teach you HOW to take the test & in my opinion thats the most important part. Yea, obviously you needed to know the info about diseases & meds & all that, but it helps a lot to know how to approach a question. ie, do you need more assessment data? yes? then you can cancel out the options that are interventions.
ALthough it was costly, Id without a doubt do it again.
I just graduated from an ADN program too & I enrolled in a rn-bsn online course. I don't find it nearly as time consuming or difficult as the 2 year program - that was just insane.
Hey guys! I'm also a brand new nurse on the med surg unit & i'm already feeling overwhelmed! In nursing school we never did much w/ the Md orders and test results, etc. so I feel way out of it. i just hope it gets easier. This is only my first week but i feel like I should know it now, I don't want to wait to aquire all the time management skills I need.
I feel like maybe this is just too much to handle, but then again I keep telling myself if everyone else did it, then i can too i guess?
yea, I'm not looking forward to those two either - I decided to take community health by itself for my last semester just because i've read that it was hard.
Dang straight I study! I read everything that is assigned. I have found the SRU quizzes and tests fairly easy. Writing papers is a lot more work, and the group assignments are a real pain because everyone is geographically separated. I have worked my butt off in some of my classes to earn A's. I'm just taking one class at a time so I don't feel overwhelmed with school/work/motherhood.
What classes are you taking this semester? I'm taking 408: Nursing Care Delivery in a Managed Care Environment.
I'm currently in the RN-BSN program at Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania, and my experience has generally been good (there was one lousy professor). It's NLN-accredited, inexpensive (~$800 per 3-credit class), has no travel requirement to PA, and has fewer general education requirements than many other programs. I would highly recommend it.
