    I am just finishing my first semester of clinicals at JD. You will love the clinical instructors in the first level. Their all very helpful. Good luck!

    oh neat! i start in a couple weeks. what did you do first semester? did you have many clinicals?? where were they at?? i'm glad you like the instructors. they seemed nice at orientation.

    The first semester isn't so bad. We learned how to do a cath, trach care and suctioning , and med admin. We only had 8 days of actual clinical towards the end of the semester. Half of those days are in a hospital and the other half are in a nursing home. While we were at the hospital we gave meds (scary), but it wasn't that bad. You just have to study up on the meds your patient is receiving. Clinical is scary, but fun. Have a great semester and enjoy it because level 2 is supposed to be the worst out of all the levels.

    Thanks for the info. It's good to hear that it isn't that bad. In orientation, they made it sound like I'd be studying 24 hours a day. Wish there were more clinicals, but I guess I'll be in the lab most of the semester which will probably be fun too since it's all new to me. Good luck next semester!

    ooops, sorry... i'm a little late on this message. but, i hope that you found it friday. wasn't it SO hot in that room?!

    I found it. I just followed the other people that looked lost. It was hot!! That really sucks we didn't get the other room. It's nice, I accidentally went in it trying to find the orientation a few weeks ago. Do you like the class so far?

    i love it! i think i'm just a bit overwhelmed with all the books and supplies we had to pick up from the bookstore. oh, and the fact that we have a test in a matter of 4 days.

    Haha, I think I decided I was overwhelmed the night I was supposed to read 300 pages!! WOW, that didn't happen. I don't think the concepts are too hard to understand, but it is still a challenging class because there is soo much to do!

    Who are you? LOL I sit over by the door, haha I don't know how else to explain me. I'm tall and my name is Laura if that helps.
