    I would try to read the physical assessment chapter (I believe its ch 30 in the fundamentals book) if you get a chance before the break is over. It is 100 pages long. And also the medication administration chapter was used a lot (ch 35). She gives notes and study guides. Most of the tests followed by what her study guides were on, so I would def do them. It helps a lot. The clinicals start the last 3 weeks of class.

    I have RW for lab. I'm going to try to read over eectrolytes before the class starts. It sounds hard.

    Well one more class almost down! These 8 weeks flew by. And glad because I do not like memorizing drugs! How was med-surg? Was it as tough as everyone says?

    Oh ok gotcha, so the first week is the 2-8pm on tues and thur and 1230-430 on Wednesday. But the second week is what we chose on sis when we enrolled? Like I chose a 630-1230 lab time for tues and thur so that should be my schedule for the second week and after right?

    Is the schedule on the tcc website correct for 170? 2-8pm and 1230:-4:30pm

    Well that's good she prints things out for u. Ours waits til the evening after I leave school and I don't have a printer at home so I'm always having to get there early. It was ms d that went over assessment and she didn't know what we were supposed to know for the practicum. I just hope next week ms b is there to go over it. I would be mad too if she changed the schedule at the last minute. My boss wouldn't have gone for that

    First week of pharm seemed overwhelming. The head to toe assessment seems hard and everything is so unorganized. I guess the first week is always chaotic though..but I'm not too impressed with the way things have gone so far. We've only been given 2 hours of lab time and our practicum is in 2 weeks. Well there's my rant for now. I def gotta catch up on the reading. How is med surg virgo?

    Just don't fall behind on the reading! Almost every test I would wait until the day before to start studying. if you can, try to read the first I think 5 chapters for the first test. Don't try to memorize the terms. Just read for basic understanding. the tests aren't that hard..its just a time-consuming class.

    Definitely the fundamentals. I would buy the newer tabers dictionary. But the others were hardly used so I would buy them used if u can

    I would say buy it new. Because then you won't have to buy mynursinglab separately

    12 hr clinicals stink. but at least there's no class on mon and fri.

    That's funny because I was intimidated by ms g and now she's my fav. Clinicals intimidate me but I'm getting better with the flow of things. So far we've only lost one person and I hope it stays that way. I got lucky with my class. No drama! Do clinicals start the first week in pharm?

    So nur 108 is almost over and I am glad because I need a break. It wasn't as hard as I thought it was gonna be...its just so time consuming. I am going to miss my instructors. How was pharmacology? Was it harder than fundamentals?

    That's my problem..I'm focusing too hard on memorizing rather than actually getting it. I'm going to try and set up something this weekend for studying for the test Monday. Thanks for the test tips!

    100 pages?? Ugh! We got our test next Monday. I've just been reading as much as I can until I think I got it down, but I still get the questions wrong at the end of the chapter. Hopefully this week I can catch up
