Do you like it over there at Geary? Why did it take so long? Maybe if I can tell what am doing wrong. I tried to private message you but it would not let me. Is it that the hospitals are small? Do you work with other army wife nurses?
Well i can say its very erratic!!! Everything changes quite often and sometimes we had school on days that previously were not on the schedule. Last semester i had skills lab Monday morning for about six weeks and then it changed to Friday after lecture. I had clinical on Thursday 6.30-6.00 pm. We had a wound care seminar sometime during the week and there was an exam that was on a different day than it had been scheduled. The thing is you will be in school maybe three days in a week but its different for everyone. If you have a two day clinical then you might be in school 4 out of 5 days. It all depends. I would advice you to wait and see what your schedule is and then decide what to do. I had so many problems last semester with my job scheduling that i had to switch to weekends. Am sure some people had better schedules but i wasn't one of them. It all depends.
Apart from the fact that my schedule keeps changing, my first sem at EC is ok so far. I have some friends who are really having it rough because the lecture exams isn't what you would normally expect and some clinical proff are much stricter than others!! Once you learn what the instructor expects of you, then all you can do is your best!!
Thats the way it works in most community colleges in my state. You take placement tests for only math and english but you have to pass them and test out before you can take either college algebra,eng comp, chem or bio.
Well it just depends on your school. My ADN program, seems so erratic for this first sem. i had class and skills, mon, thur and fri, sometimes 8-12 or 1-5pm. Now i will have clinicals thur 6.45-6.45pm. So i guess the plan is to have as many backups as possible for daycare.
i know what you mean.i am my first sem of adn program, and am still in shock over the amount of material we cover and all other stuff like skills,clinicaqls, online tests. i met my bf just before sch started and i thot i could work it out but it wont work!! i see him only once a week because am working and i have only one free day. and i still feel like i should be studying instead!! so i think this rship is going to fizzle really fast!!
We have to trackdown food for four to seven days and use this software to print out like averages and then do the reports !!! The project is divide into like 3 parts. Am taking the class online and i guess i just didnt expect it to occupy up so much of my time!!
i would have loved to go to nl just coz i go there now and i know some students already in the program who like it but i just moved to north dallas and ec is really just a better option. the commute to irving right now is killing me and i wouldnt be able to do it for two more years!! ec is my first choice, i hope i get in!!

I have taken all those classes and i did really well in them only becoz i took them in different semesters. I know it all depends on your study habits and if you have other commitments like kids, work. If you do then you will have a lot of stress with the classes!! The classes need a lot of study and memorization as am sure you have heard!! I hope u do well though!!
