    Surgical PCU help!

    I'm a GN and have multiple offers on various PCU positions but I am gearing more towards Florida Hospital GT14 Surgical PCU! Does anyone have actual experience on this unit? Any response or advice would greatly be appreciated!

    There is currenly no waitlist at Valencia so most students who apply usually start within a semester or two after applying. I am about to graduate from the program and I just want to warn anyone who wants to study Nursing at Valencia...... its easy to get in but really tough to stay! They "weed out" students in the first and second semesters. Im sure this not only happens at Valencia though! Best of luck to you!

    Scrubs and Stethoscope

    I have both Classic and Lightweight. I honestly dont hear much difference on the sounds I auscultate (they're both great)! I prefer using the Lightweight though coz its much lighter on my neck/chest area.

    They allow students to use a simple calculator all the time (thank goodness)! You need to get 92% or higher per exam to get your points and students MUST pass the final exam to pass the course! Its not bad though! Good luck!

    Interested in Nursing

    Dimensional Analysis is so much differerent from Algebra! I never did well on Algebra, but I always got A's in dosages! Don't let Math be one reason to stop you from becoming a nurse! Good luck!

    You will definitely need Kozier & Erb's Fundamentals of Nursing as well as the Mental Health and Pharmacology books. I strongly suggest you also purchase Fundamentals Success since it will help you answer critical thinking nursing questions. Dosages is mostly self-study....they teach it to you once or twice and that's it!

    I'm currently in the program and its very challenging but doable. Make sure to study/read assigned chapters everyday and brush up on your dosages! Make use of the lab tutors for help specially for check off skills (they're awesome)! Take Fundamentals very seriously coz that's where most students resequence! Good luck everyone!

    IV solution study tips!

    I need some help in studying for IV solutions! I dont know why I am getting confused on when to use Isotonic, Hypotonic and Hypertonic solutions. What do you use for high BP, low BP, swelling etc.?

    I finally got my books today! The dosages book has been revised so I'm gonna have to sell the version I bought a few months ago.

    As of now, Chemistry is not a prerequisite for ASN at Valencia. You're gonna need to take Micro and Nutrition for sure. Check out their website for more details. Good luck to you!

    These are not my words (I copied it from the Valencia website). Hope this helps! Minimum overall college GPA (including transfer coursework) will be 3.2. Minimum overall GPA in the science prerequisites (Anatomy & Physiology I and II and Microbiology) will be 3.0. Minimum overall GPA in the other nursing prerequisites (PSY2012, DEP2004, ENC1101, HUN2202, and Humanities) will be 3.2.

    Thanks jacquisosa! Has anyone already purchased the entire bookset we need? When will the books be available at the bookstore?

    You'll get it! I guess FA is very busy lately since the deadline is coming up soon.
