Just starting- any advice?

  1. I just got my acceptance letter today. I'll be starting clinicals for the ASN program in August. Can any of you new grads give me advice you wish you'd had, or tell me how manageable nursing school is? I'll be going 3 days a week. Thanks!

    CONGRATULATIONS on being accepted into a program.
    My advice: Keep your eyes and ears always open to everything. You will always be learning something new each day, and even when the least expected.

    Good luck

    Congrats... on getting accepted 2 an ASN program. 4 U 2 succeed U must have God and supportive family and close friends. Next.... U must sacrifice everything 4 these next 2 years. Also... U must a "never-give-up" attitude because there will B many times when U want 2 quit or just give up. U must establish great time management skills and to stick w/ the schedule.

    I hope U also possess the caring and hard working attitude that is needed 2 become a great nurse. Don't let anyone or anything stand in your way!!!

    congratulations.

    organizational skills will help tremendously. "seek" out someone who is as dedicated as yourself, don't sweat the small stuff and by all means, enjoy the experiences.
