Hello everyone! Sorry I haven’t written anything recently. After the spring semester finished, I was working extra at my hospital in preparation for the summer semester, which will start tomorrow. Anyway, I finished my first semester of grad school strong! It was challenging at times, but it’s definitely doable. Next comes the fast paced summer semester!
This summer semester I will be taking Advanced Physical Assessment. In any nursing or medical program, there are 3 fundamental classes that must be taken before you begin clinicals. They are the 3 P’s: Physical Assessment, Pathology, and Pharmacy. These help build the foundation for the clinicals and classes to come.
Advanced physical assessment is basically taking what we learned in nursing school about physical assessment and going more in-depth and tying in disease processes. We get the opportunity to go to different clinical rotations to help put what we are learning into practice.
I can’t wait to get started! I look forward to sharing my new found knowledge with everyone and bring y’all along for the ride! Until then, keep living healthy!
