Hey there and thanks!
First thing first is to try to be optimistic (but realistic). Don't down yourself until you hear anything! You never know what is going to happen!
Unlike a lot of other schools, if you make it into CSUSB, we are on a quarter system and because of that each quarter is a whole rotation. First quarter is all fundamentals. In lecture, you learn about the nursing process, ADPIE, as well as basic bedside care of patients, HIPAA, safety and such... Its honestly a really easy quarter if you have some healthcare experience under your belt. If you are new to this field it might seem a little intimidating but don't worry you will do fine. As far as clinical, it is pretty much all CNA work but you do nurse assessments, help with certain procedures and stuff like that. And yes, you may have to write care plans....get a good careplan book if you can.
As far as working, it is definitely doable! I have worked as a CNA before and throughout the whole program and the last quarter I obtained another CNA job (I am crazy right?) I would say part time work is doable. UNfortunately, you will have class Monday-Thursday most likely for the first year (unless something has changed). If you can work fridays, saturdays, and sundays then I think you will be fine. Just make sure you set time aside to study. I always would get to campus early and study for a bit before class in the library (4th floor has some comfy chairs). It is really hard to study at home if you have family. If you work a desk job or something where you have down time, you can always sneak some studying in there too. I try to also study on days before I work since i dont come in until 1900 and leave at 0700.
Also, and probably most importantly, set time for your self aside. Don't let the program over take you. See friends and family a few times a month if you have the time. Remember, you need to keep your sanity for yourself and your patients lol.
I think I pretty much covered everything! Oh and I will try to watch this thread and hopefully I will see you all at orientation. :)
I am here if you have more questions!
