The time I’m in class or clinical during the week is pretty minimal this semester. I have class once a week for three hours, and I have clinical on Tuesdays and Wednesdays until the end of February. I’ll be starting my preceptorship later in the semester, but my schedule is pretty light compared to previous semesters.
My instructors have warned us about the dangers we face with this level of freedom in fourth semester. Plus, there is this thing called senioritis (related to studying too much in the previous three semesters as evidenced by exhaustion and an f*** it all mentality). So, I’m trying to fight against senioritis the best way I can…with a (care) plan. I’m all about making plans and checklists.
- Finish typing my journal for clinical about patient education.
- Read the material for Thursday’s case study lecture.
- Type agenda for Monday’s nursing club officers’ meeting.
- Complete case study for Thursday.
- Attend nursing club officers’ meeting.
- Complete service learning hours at Union Gospel Mission.
- Study the case study with my study group.
- Review the diabetes mellitus content from previous semesters.
- Answer 100 NCLEX questions related to Thursday’s content areas (diabetes mellitus and renal).
- Write my journal for clinical regarding my service learning experience.
- Attend the case study lecture.
- Attend the study session with the fourth semester tutor.
- Celebrate Friday by having fun with my sister, Megan, and her family!
What’s your plan for the week?
