All those Practice Guidelines and Client Handouts

We are nearing the end of Winter Trimester, 2017. It was a great semester! I was able to complete the trimester way ahead of schedule which gave me a nice long break! I was not in a apprenticeship this trimester, so there was plenty of time to complete all assignments, and complete them well ahead of schedule. There was also time to take a one week break mid-trimester to visit my parents out-of-state.

This semester, I decided to create a schedule, in a notebook, for all classes and all assignments, including the required participations (no computer scheduling this time, because that has not worked in the past; I’m the pen and paper type!) I followed the schedule precisely, and it allowed me to submit assignments on time, and not fall behind, but to move far ahead in assignments.

This trimester was the trimester of practice guideline and client handouts: 42 total!! The three courses I took were Chemistry & Nutrition, Complications of the Prenatal Period, and Postpartum Care. Below is a list of the practice guidelines and handouts I created this trimester.
