Yet another AP question

Students General Students


it is going to be a long semster. I am reading the chapters in my book and making note cards on things I think are important. Do you think I will need to know the terms for the regions of the body. Structure and region? There are a lot of them. LOL I am just not sure how much I will have to refer back to them. TIA

Yep. Learn the regions. Learn the terminology. Depending on your nursing program, you'd better learn the endocrinology, polarization of muscles, and other processes of phisiology. The more you can learn, not memorize, now, the better off you'll be later. Some nurses say they never use this stuff. Others say it's invaluable to a deeper understanding of what's going wrong or right with a pt.

Well, let me put it this way.....I started out with a CASE of the 3 x 5 cards, and didn't have ENOUGH!

Yep, learn it all. Most everything else makes sense when you learn this stuff first.

You will also need the terminology/regions etc for charting. You will be expected to use proper terminology when doing your legal charting on the floors.
