    We should definitely have a PARTY!!! lol It would be sooo good to see everyone. Even if its just meeting up at a chili's or something like that. We are getting closer and closer to being there. I just finished my last OB clinical today :) No more clinicals till the big Term 4. Yay!!! We can do this. There is no doubt in my mind. The finish line is so near

    Wow...is it just me or is time flying like crazy??? Its a good and bad thing. I mean I'm happpy to get through this quickly, but some days I'm just like where did it go. I think we are all going to be in shock when we are done. Like, what the heck do we do now? This program has consumed my life. And its going to be weird actually having one again. lol Anyways, how is everyone doing?? It feels like forever and a day since I've been on here. Hope everyone is doing well. 2 more months and we are in 4th term. Wooooo hooo..lol

    Thanks for the advice. I start Peds Monday...look forward to getting the hardest one finished with first. I actually work at Wolfson's already, but not sure if I want to stay there. It will be nice to see everything from a nurses perspective. Good luck with Adult Heatlh II and Transformations this summer. You're almost there!!!!!!

    I am currently doing classes on Tuesday night and clinicals Saturday and Sunday. They only offered one in Term 2 and suprisingly not alot of ppl wanted ours. But I love the schedule and everything about it. Hope this helps you some. Good Luck!!!

    Bridges is amazing!!!!!!!!! Absolutely love her:) Half of the battle in term 2 is the nursing instructor you get. And luckily I got 2 really good ones.

    Hey clinicals do start on week one. Its really not that bad. We don't have to go up there the day before and get care plan stuff. We get while we are there on Saturday, do a care plan saturday, and then bring it back sunday during clinical. Most of the nursing staff is amazing. Just going to warn you though....week one is the most stressful. You have a skills test, 6 chapters worth of information to study, and clinicals to endure before your first test on monday. Its alot, but after week one, its smooth sailing:) Good luck and your welcome.

    So....I haven't posted on here in a very long time. But just wanted to give everyone an update. In Term 2 Adult Health 1 and LOVING it!!!!!!!!! Its alot different from first term. We focus in on the disease processes in class and clinicals try to get all the experience we can get. I highly recommend Orange Park hospital for clinicals. It has been such a great experience. I have soooo far become quite efficient with shots, hung countless IV meds, passed a whole bunch of meds, removed an NG tube, and wound care. Instead of being with one patient we follow a nurse and do everything with/ for her. Its exciting. If anyone is in Psych/ Leadership get ready for a little intensity though. We have two 8 hour clinicals back to back each week. You keep very busy, but you learn soooo much and its been a good experience so far:) Hope all is well with everyone!!!!

    I second all of this!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We are both in the same section and you CANNOT do everything. Take it a test at a time and breathe. The first semester is overwhelming and it is for a reason. So good luck you guys!!!!

    I'm going into term 2..I declined my Hep B 2, but got a booster shot. Being a nurse is going to be very worth it. Don't let that person tell you otherwise. Some people are just unhappy and want people to feel the same way. You will be just fine. And running around for that stuff was a pain, but I think it was an adequate preview to the disorganization to come. lol Anyways...I hope you guys enjoy your x-mas holiday!!! And welcome to the program:yeah:

    Dosage Calculations, Med Term, and IV calc aren't very hard. You do have to teach yourself these things, but they have study guides and videos you can watch. Its just good to get started now because once you start classes you will tons of stuff on your plate. And you will go over Cranial Nerves in Health Assessment. I was just emphasizing that they are "Big" on tests and important in general. The key to nursing school is not over whelming yourself. You will be just fine!!!! :)

    I agree with Karma64...Study partners/ groups are a MUST. We all split everything up and helped each other out. You become very close with your group and its one of those things that makes nursing school bearable. So...get a study buddy:)

    You might have gotten Section 7..its the only one that had open slots at the very end. The one night class and weekend won't be bad...just 8 weeks. We also have really good professors. No matter what happens, you will do just fine. And i'm sorrry they were not soo understanding with your daughter. Poor thing!!! I hope she feels better. Keeep your head up girl and everything will work out.

    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:) For classes: 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!!!
