Holy cow, I am really bad at this replying thing. I go months without remembering to reply...Once again, sorry I blame it on school. lol...So I will reply to both of your previous questions!
Anyway, Congrats on getting into traditional! That's very exciting. The only advice I can give you is study, study, study...and study some more. I can't even tell you how many hours I study, especially for exams...endless! It's extremely difficult but it will be worth it..and at least TRY to enjoy it It's hard to sometimes because it gets overwhelming and stressful but you have to remember why you love nursing and want to be a nurse!
Make sure you review anything you didn't quite get from A&P because everything will build on each other. I have been told many times that over breaks you should always review anything you didn't quite understand from the previous semester... And maybe practice a little math.
About pathophysiology.... I am just finishing the class and I'm not going to lie.........It has definitely been the hardest, most stressful, want to pull all of my hair out.. class. haha.... It's so hard because it is SO much information in a very short amount of time and it's a LOT to learn. I did hear a little rumor but I'm not sure if it's true or not... They are thinking of spliting patho into 2 semesters (during the 1st and 2nd) instead of putting it all into one semester. Like I said, not sure if it will happen, but I can only hope for you guys that it would...because that would ease the pain!! It's also been so difficult because it's paired up with another hard nursing class. 1st semester for me was all about "normals" and 2nd semester was a step up into diseases and the care for those diseases PLUS pathophys.
ANYWAYS... DON'T even worry about 2nd semester yet! Focus on 1st semester and don't get ahead of yourself :) Good luck guys!!! Let me know if you have any questions... I can do my best to answer.
