WoW!!! You guys make me misss alll of this. I'm telling all of you right now...this will be one of the hardest things you will do. I'm finishing up my first semester and am soooooo happppy to be getting done with term 1. When selecting a hospital..it alll depends on what # you get ( its a lottery). I am at Baptist DT this semester and it has been a really good experience. We just registered for classes today and I will be at Orange Park and Shands this next semester :) I'm soooo excited!!! lol Heres a bit of advice: Study hard, but not too hard. You need a life in the midst of this. The tests are difficult and you will probably fail your first one, but after that it only gets better :) There is a tonnnnnnnnnnnnnnn of pressure put on us and you will want to pull your hair out sometimes. Then again...there are days I LOVE this program. You learn alot and its a very exciting thing. Just get ready for the challenge of balancing it all. You will allllll do great, just stay positive:)
Concepts- Read the book and do the objectives!!!!! The powerpoints were
really not helpful. (Very boring, but tests are tricky)
Pharm- Study lecture notes and the powerpoints.
Health Assessment- Read book ( Jarvis) and study powerpoints!! Know your Cranial Nerves..VERY IMPORTANT!!!!
Techniques- Watch the videos, read the book, study powerpoints, and PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE!! The simulations were stressful..but you will do great if you know what your doing!!
HESI- There is suppose to be a book in the library that is helpful..GET IT!!!
Med Term/ Drug calc/ IV Calc- KNOW THIS STUFF INSIDE AND OUT... It appears on most of your tests..hint hint (Start studying NOW!!!)
Good Luck and see you around!!!
