    Re-quoting this post because I just tried it again and it sounds clear now. Thanks again for the tip!

    Sure, I'm sure a lot of us will be willing to give you tips in preparation (peppering the angus) for your lab midterm but can you elaborate on how the previous lab was evaluated/graded ? Was it just naming and identifying the body parts or was there something more to it? If you own an iphone/android and havent picked up Speed Anatomy app, I suggest you do so lol. Great to study with while being in the bathroom.

    Some of the study tactics that I used to do was bringing a list of the information that I had to memorize to work. I would read the name then point to where it is. I would then do it vice versa. I had a separate piece of paper with a drawing to check myself. Also brought flash cards with me to work and would go over it throughout the shift.
    Visualizing while studying helps in my opinion. Give yourself self-tests and make sure you can name, label, ect the anatomical figures.

    I think the number 1 advice I could give anyone is to go over lab stuff every day. You want to instill this information into your brain. Everyday, even if its only 15-30mins a day, just going over and reciting and memorizing what anatomical figure and where it is will help. By the time you get to your exam, you should be able to breeze through it. AnP1-2 isnt one of those courses where you just remember then you forget..this stuff will follow you throughout your nursing career both in school and outside of school.

    Good job on the Psychology test. I enjoyed Psych..Sociology on the other hand, I found boring lol. Could have been the Prof. though because he taught with a monotonic voice.

    You guys didnt go over animal cells vs plant cells? Kind weird how they would test you on material that wasnt taught in class.

    Ahhh... ok. Yeah just do well for the rest of the practicals and that one shouldnt hurt you.

    Btw just like how they want you to take bio prior to anp1, its also good to take medical terminology prior to anp1-2 and def before nursing ..but thats if your college has that course available. If it is available, see if you can take it during winter before taking AnP2. I think it helps out a lot. Medical Terminology is like learning the basics of another language, which in our case its the language of the health/medical field.

    Oh and Bio and MicroBio isnt too hard. I found them easier than AnP1-2

    Edit: If you took medical terminology already disregard most of this post lol.

    So i just want to get this straight.

    There are 4 kinds of tissue

    a. Nervous
    b. Muscular
    c. Connective
    d. Epithelial

    In epithelial you can have either

    Simple or Stratified



    Simple
    • Simple Epithelial
    • Simple Cuboidal
    • Simple Columnar
    Stratified
    • Stratified Epithelial
    • Stratified Cuboidal
    • Stratified Columnar

    And then there's two more called Transitional epithelial and Glandular epithelial.

    Am i understanding it right?

    Yeah forgot to mention that.

    And can anyone help me out w/ connective tissue now lol?

    From my understanding there's 11 types of connective tissue?
    aerolar, adipose, reticular, dense regular connective, dense irregular connective elastic connective, hyaline cartilage, fibrocartilage, elastic cartilage, bone, & blood.

    and then loose connective tissue come into play in this scheme.

    i just need help branching out these things/organizing them in the right cateogries tbh

    Ok brah. So you have the connective tissues, I broke them down like this. When I thought of CT, I thought of this:

    Connective Tissues, actual like TISSUES:
    Dense Regular CT
    Aereolar CT
    Reticular CT
    Elastic CT

    Then I remembered the Cartilage:
    Elastic
    Hyaline
    Fibrocartilage

    Then the others in a misc category:
    Bone
    Blood
    Adipose

    I just took a lecture exam on this, and it was my first lab practical.. lol. Think I 100%'d the lecture exam. Any questions just ask brah.

    Had my first clinical at a nursing home.. I was really nervous at first, but once I got in there it wasn't bad. My patient was a long term CVA patient with paralysis on the right side. Bipolar/depression and dysarthria, It was really hard to communicate with him because he could understand me, but was only able to say yes, or no, or yeah man. And sometimes no meant yes, and yes meant no. But when I started talking about football/baseball, and specifically the Orioles, his eyes would light up and would try his best to communicate with me. All in all it was a good learning experience. Told me that he hated it at the nursing home and wanted to see his family, made me sad brahs

    Good job. Get ready to give A LOT of meds with half assed assessments. You will be very busy depending on how many patients they give you.

    South texas. This hospital actually has a its own "medical floor." Both the medical and surgical floors are separate.

    It's not good to hear. It's going to be a crappy job with a manager that's trying to guilt trip you. Just don't sign anything. Apply to the ICU asap

    Throw out the questions and i'm sure you'll get answers. they're not going to ask you hard stuff. simple anatomy and physiology of coronary artery disease should suffice imo. Atherosclerotic plaque builds up in coronary arteries, narrowing them, decreasing blood flow and oxygen to heart. patients will have symptoms of angina. Will normally be on nitrates to dilate vessels and increase oxygen supply. patients will have dyspnea with exertion due to increased oxygen demand that the body can't meet. Atherosclerotic blockage(s) stop flow and oxygen, causing ischemia and then infarct. Plaque could break off and cause blockage in the heart causing infarct or go to brain causing stroke.

    It's also not a bad idea to know normal cardiac output (4-8 L/min), and pressures throughout the heart. CVP 2-5 mmhg depending who you ask. pulmonary capillary wedge pressure 6-12mmhg. But I doubt these will be necessary

    I was hired as a new grad into a level 1 trauma's MICU / SICU. New grads are cheap labor.

    I'm doing pretty good so far. Passed the first lecture exam. I think I was the only male out of the 3 in my clinical group that passed it so I kind of feel good about that (Not sure about the other males in the lecture class though). I have my second exam (lecture) and clinical/lab practical coming up at the end of this month so I'm going to be stressed again.

    I shouldn't have looked at the finals date because its so close and there's so much to study for lol. I'm ahead about 1 week in lecture reading/assignments/notes so hopefully it ll benefit me with some dedicated studying days.

    just came back from cath lab...

    I have to say...nurses who work in these departments i've been to know there sh!t, but at the same time...on a normal basis don't seem to really have to put it into practice.

    I saw a couple diagnostics as well as stents put in, most of the prep, assisting the physician during the procedure was done by the specialized xray techs (2 in the room - 1 at the computers, 1 is gowned...and they knew their sh!t as well). I'm sure the nurse has more going on in her head but all she was physically doing was writing things down and moving one thing to another place. Did not want.
