    Book Search

    I'm looking for a good NCLEX-RN review and Q&A book, preferrably one with a CD, and with rationales. Not a lot to ask is it? LOL. Anyone have a suggestion?

    Need help preparing for the Hesi A2 Entrance Exam

    I wouldn't call the HESI easy, but very do-able. The nerves will get you every time, just take a deep breath and know you can do it! I do suggest the HESI study guide, I found it extremely helpful! I remember some vocab. came right out of the book! Don't sweat the A&P it was pretty basic. Good Luck!:)

    I had a little trouble finding out how to get the personal medical record started too. I did get the book Using The Electronic Health Record (it was recommended) and on Page 180-184 it talked all about PHR (personal health record), I'm assuming is the same, it shows what to include in your PHR and I found it helpful. Also, page 375 in Fundamentals book lists some different websites to try. Good Luck All! I hope this helps!:)

    The nurse pac is $89 and it contains IV tubing, catheter tubing, an IV bag and various other stuff needed for labs. I was able to see one that they had behind the counter. It's all wrapped up and not for sale. LauJen, if you decide to rent books for HHSC class, I did notice that the same books for the HHSC class are used in the 1100"s courses.

    I have a seminar in Aug. called Intro. to the Profession of Nur. (3 days, 8:00-4:00) *must pass to start classes for the fall! Then I start in Oct. Health Assessment in Nursing (theory class) Health Assessment skills in Nursing (lab) Fundamentals of Nursing Practice 1 (theory) Intro. to Clinical Nursing skills (lab) It's a big load, but I'm so excited, scared, & anxious that I want to just start already!!!

    If you still have the instructor's email, it wouldn't hurt to try. The fee may be less than a full course somewhere else.:)

    Did you take this course with Jenuwine? You have a 30 day grace once you expire and we were told you can get recertified with this instructor for a small fee.

    Hi everyone! I too was a bit discouraged by the orientation (doom and gloom), but I'm not going to let it get to me. I'm probably an August start but am requesting Oct. so for all those hoping for Aug. there's one spot open!! Good luck with all your tests and titers. I heard the health dept. was the best bet for cheap vaccines. Anyone else think they're Oct.? Also, is anyone taking the PHED 2070 this spring? I'll be in the night class.

    I think it was some scare tactics for those that are looking for a quick career. I knew this was a tough program, but she needed to ease up on the doom and gloom. A few more positives would have been nice! I'm bummed about not having a pinning ceremony. I'd heard about them, they make graduating a bit more special! They really seem to push the BSN instead. I did like hearing from the students. Very encouraging! I guess now, we wait for those letters in June.

    My head was swimming with all the info. I left still excited to start, but a little sick with worry. I have four kids (all in school, but young) and is it me or is the new class load a little bit heavier than anybody anticipated? Anyway, I did like the prices of the new uniforms and I tried them on. They run big! :)

    I agree, the scrubs are awful!

    I was checking out my program plan on webadvisor (It's already updated for nursing!) and it looks like all the class numbers have changed (like 1500s, etc.) I wonder if all the books are changing as well. Just wonder if anyone heard. I too can hardly wait for the 19th!

    I did hear that same thing about uniforms at the bookstore . I'm also an organizing nerd! I'd love to scratch something off the list!
