    Same here-still feel like I'm playing catch up.
    Would like to get to a place where I feel like I'm a bit ahead. Hopefully, that will come soon.

    Chap 5 has some info that is not covered in Chap 32-it had answers to nclex questions. It gives you a more details than 32.
    Should you read it too?
    It is on the required reading list.
    I know it's a lot.
    Better to err on the side of doing too much than too little for now-

    Quote from Stephy04
    What do we do with the objectives?? Just keep them as notes?
    The learning objectives from the course module Nurs1020 we bought in the bookstore are what we are going to be tested on.
    The teacher says before coming to lecture:
    1. read objectives
    2. read the chapter and highlight answers to objectives. (vital signs is module 2.2 in the packet.)
    3. take notes during lecture
    4. combine objectives, highlights in book and lecture notes.
    5. rewrite and completely answer objective
    This info is outlined in her 'Study Suggestions' handout.

    Also read Chap 5 from Perry/Potter Nursing Skills.

    Hope this helps.

    I spent about 4 hrs yesterday reading/highlighting answering critical thinking exercise and nclex review questions.
    Today I'm going to read the skills book chap 5/highlight and maybe do the chap32 study guide questions. I'll see how long that takes. Right now it's a matter of getting organized and figuring out how much work we have to put into this to get the grade we want.

    Pharm is going to have it's own time requirements because of the amount of memorizing required to know the meds.

    When do you have Math? My class is on Thursday.

    All in all it's very doable-especially since my boys just went back to college. I get my study area back.

    So what is the consensus on the Hesi? Do we need it or not?
    Mrs ******** did not come right out and say whether or not we definitely needed it.

    ralphigesbabe and Jwh4 like this.

    The Hesi is listed as two items on our book list however, it is packaged all in one. Practice test is listed on front and the online case studies are on the back.

    Same here. Had to bite the bullet and buy the Hesi because couldn't find it anywhere on the 'net. I'm not opening it until it's confirmed that we need it.

    Has anyone checked their school email? Just checked mine-got email dtd 12/09 concerning my documents. Seems that I'm missing the Core curriculum certificate(didn't know we needed to turn that one in too) and my original PE which I did turn in. Will have to wait until 1/3 to rectify.

    All but two. I couldnt really find too many good deals online so I decided to suck it up and go to the bookstore to get them.

    And as for the uniform pants- There is a scrub shop on Hillsboro just east of powerline that has the pants pretty cheap- under $15. I think I'm going to go back there today to buy them.
    thanx for the info
