I was actually thinking about my pre-reqs the other day. Honesty, I think the only class that has helped me in NS was anatomy. We learned about some of the disease in Physio and Patho. I took these classes nearly 2 years ago, so I remember very little of the material we studied. But, Yes, in NS there is a LOT about disease and disease process. Good Luck!

LOL!! So it's true that once you start your clinicals that you have to let a pleasure such as keeping your house clean go!!! I hope I can deal with that becasue I am a neat freak!!

I actually got round to cleaning my bath the other night as well :D Im also proud of myself.

I recently invited my sister in law over and boy did she start laying into me about the 'mess' and general state of the house. She then proceded to say that nursing isnt that hard and you only work 40 hours a week-shame she forgot about the studying and the essays not to mention the portfolio work as well-so according to her there is no excuse for me to have a messy house :uhoh3: She is a stay at home mum so she has the time to clean. Perhaps she would like to try my life for a few days.

Perhaps your sis-in-law would be so kind as to clean YOUR house with her scads and scads of free time!

Scrubbing bubbles is very useful. Just spray and let it soak in while doing something else, then use a scrubbing pad to wipe it down then let the water wash it away. Spotless shower/tub in under 5 minutes. I would have to clean mine often because my daughter loves her bubble baths.

I understand completely. I spent 7 hours in my kids room cleaning up and trying to get ready for new carpet to be installed at the end of the week. My room on the other hand is worse. There just isn't enough time in the day to be a Mom and a Nurse, so my house suffers. :chuckle

Ladies! I found this amazing yet simple solution to keeping my shower spotless without ever having to rub and scrub (at least not more that once a month) Basically, get one of those tilex after-shower sprays...dilute it to half the stregth with water, and leave it in your shower to spray every day after you shower...if you have a handheld in the shower just give the walls a quick rinse after bathing to take out the suds before you use the spray on the walls. alternatively, you can keep a large cup in the shower like I do to wash the visible suds off.

Other homemade 'recipes' for the daily shower spray are simply 10% alcohold and water solution, 10% bleach solution , or 10% of your favorite shower cleaner and water...personally I found another cleaner recipe i love...mix 1/4 cup rubbing alcohol, 1/4 cup peroxide, 6 drops dishwashing soap, 4 tbsp dishwashing rinsing agent and 24 oz water. Pour in a spray bottle and use every day!

This has worked like magic for me..I'm a full-time nursing student with an all-white tiled shower so believe me when i say this has worked wonders for me :)

I had my last final this morning at 10. When I got home, the first thing I did was finally fold and hang up all the clean laundry that's been sitting in baskets for weeks. and I cleaned my bathroom, and my kitchen, and I'm washing the dirty laundry that's piled up lately. It feels soooo good to have a clean apartment again :redpinkhe:redpinkhe:redpinkhe
