Second Year Student

The break was great! It was a much needed time of resting my mind. I had time to enjoy the last bit of summer break with my daughters. We went to the coast and beach for two separate day trips. We also got to go camping for four days in Shaver Lake with our good friends. If there’s one thing I love doing in summer, it is camping.  I was able to find two small campsites, next to each other the week before our camping trip. We loaded up a U-haul with all our gear, our friend’s gear, and we took off! We had lots of food, water fun for the children, and s’mores by the campfire. We also went to San Diego for a couple days. I took all six of my daughters, and my son and his girlfriend joined us, too. We went to Balboa Park and then the beach. We had a great time!

I tried to fit all of summer into three weeks and did a lot of activities with my children to make up for a summer vacation that was filled with school work for their mom. All six of them and I enjoyed every trip we made.

And with that….

All good things must come to an end, and now, it’s time to get back to school. The 2016-2017 school year at Midwives College of Utah begins today, August 29, 2016.  It’s still so hard to believe that I am a second year student in midwifery college. This school  year will have me enrolled in 10 different classes throughout the trimesters.

Many of the books used in past classes are used multiple times. So for the fall trimester, I only needed to purchase two books, because I already had seven books from previous semesters! That was a huge savings.

Fall trimester classes:
Prenatal Care II
Labor, Birth and the Immediate Postpartum
Principles of Evidence Informed Practice
(It’s a relief to not have a biology class for fall semester!)

Winder trimester classes:
Postpartum Care
Complications of the Prenatal Period
Chemistry & Nutrition (BIO 404)

Summer trimester classes:
Well Woman Care
Obstetrical Pharmacology
Complications of Labor, Birth and Immediate Postpartum
Applied Microbiology (BIO 405)

I look forward to the challenges and the information I will learn. Let the second year commence!
