Is anyone out there applying to TWU for the Spring of 2010? Just thought that I would start a group for all of us hopefuls so we could share information and have a way to communicate with each... Read More

    yah I agree with you guys. I'm still on chapter 15 as well. It is taking a long time. Last night, I had a nightmare that I got a letter from TWU, but everytime I tried to read it, something would happen-like one time this massive bird flew in and took it before I could read it, and another time, I couldn't read any faster than slow motion and couldn't get passed the first sentence. So I never knew if it was an acceptance or rejection.
    I am so glad we are taking this class now instead of during the 1st semester!

    OK, I've finished chpt 16 now (except I want to type the chpt summary review like I did for chpt 15) and I'm hoping I can get chpt 17 & 18 in tomorrow. Gotta go pick up the kid now though. Won't get much done with him running around all afternoon.

    BTW, can you imagine having to take this class with pharmacology too. Wow, those poor students who didn't get a chance to take this by itself. I'm in awe of any one of them that makes it through this semester.

    You know what I think is strange? I have a friend who has his ADN from El Centro, and he never took Patho or Pharm. Apparently it wasn't required for his degree. Don't you guys think that's weird? I am finally finishing up Chap. 15 while my daughter naps. I am going to try to get through most of 16 after she goes to bed. These chapters are killer.

    Goopsy, your dream is too funny. It's hysterical how what's on our mind comes through in such strange ways while we sleep.

    Welcome Suniiiie, Glad to have you!! What a great user name, with this drury raining weather we are having. Study hard and do your best, the first test is always a challenge until you figure the prof. style. After that you will get your groove.

    OK, how sad is this? I spent an hour last night going through all the nursing courses we have to take and figuring out what my schedule would probably look like over the next 2 years. Pretty lame, huh?

    Just for those who want to know, that first semester doesn't look too bad but the second one (Fall 2010 for us) includes a clinical that goes from 6:30 am to 6:30 pm one day a week. Yuck.

    OK, back to studying chpt 17 & 18.

    So what does it look like next semester? I am really curious about that. I have no idea what to expect in terms of our (hopefully) schedule.

    If they stick to the same schedule days and times, which I can't imagine that they would change it since it looks like they've got a good system down, the schedule looks like this:

    Mon: 2:00 - 4:30 Nursing Assessment/Life Span
    Tues: 9:00 - 12:00 Pharmacology
    Tuesd: 1:00 - 4:00 Concepts /Clinical Competencies.
    Wed: 8:00 - 12:30 Clinical
    Thurs: 8:00 - 2:30 Clinical

    Thank you! That looks doable. I sure am glad we're getting Patho out of the way!

    Hi Sunniiiie! thanks for posting that butterfly; I wonder when patho would have been scheduled? Elizabelle, I also have one friend who has her ADN, and she has never taken pharm or patho either. I was completely shocked when I found that out. I took pharm at UTA over the summer in an 11 week course and it was so much valuable information. I can't imagine being a nurse without that knowledge because 90% of what a nurse does involves medication. I'm wondering how she knows what the adverse reactions are for a medication, what normal dosages look like, and even how to teach the patient how to take the meds and what not to take them with! It was really complicated info, but an asset to my education for sure!!

    Goopsy, it's the same class we're in right now, so Monday mornings. That's why we won't have class next semester on Monday mornings, we're taking it now.
