Tips? make sure you have your reading and/or flash cards with you at all times, and make use of every bit of downtime you have, even if it's just a couple of minutes. I have flash cards on my smartphone.
- Mar 31, '12 by GitanoRNcertainly, study as much as you can however, don't forget to save some time for your self, family and friends :d
- Mar 31, '12 by lavender59Start answering NCLEX questions per subject you covered in class.
- Mar 31, '12 by Mommyof2boys0710Sounds about right! I find a way to work it in in the shower, while waiting in line, anywhere I can
- Mar 31, '12 by pauli314I used the recorder in my smart phone during lectures and I hook it to the radio in my car so i can listen at the lectures during driving,
- Mar 31, '12 by freesia29I record myself reading the textbooks and practice NCLEX questions so I can listen to them while driving...
- Mar 31, '12 by rn/writerJust remember, guys, that your brain needs time to process what it takes in. Try to alternate reading/studying/flashcard-viewing with physical activities or things that don't require a lot of mental gymnastics. This may seem counter-intuitive, but you're more likely to retain what you've learned if you spend some time chewing and swallowing between bites.
You'll probably be able to handle stress a little better, as well.
This too shall pass.
- Mar 31, '12 by tothepointeLVNI think I did nursing school wrong the first time around because I never felt pinched for time. Hopefully I can do better on the bridge
Do 100 NCLEX questions a day if you can even on the first day. It helps with theory and later on.
- Mar 31, '12 by bookworm78910I know it is hard, but try to get enough sleep, and don't try to cram for tests when you are tired. I know in school, I tried this a few times, but was exhausted during the test and didn't retain what I read/studied. Also, I would go for a walk just before tests that were after lunch. I found by not being too full and getting exercise, I felt and did better. The endorphins from vigorous exercise totally clear your mind, and help you recall things. Good luck to all!Last edit by bookworm78910 on Mar 31, '12 : Reason: tYpO
