Hello, I will be graduating shortly--- in May 2012. I want to become a COMPETENT nurse. I don't want to forget basic information. I know alot comes from experience. I dream to become and ICU or ER nurse but I am ok with whatever I start with. My question is this: to continue educating myself, what is the best way to do so? Keep doing NCLEX questions even after you take the state exam, do lots of CEU, attend conferences, or read books..... What is best and most effective?
