I recently bought a house and moved (yay!), and as I'm trying to find a place for everything, I'm slowly building a pile of notes and study materials from nursing school and don't have anywhere to put them. I'm usually not one to "throw away" school materials, but I haven't touched them since I graduated in December and I don't have anywhere to store them. I kept all my textbooks, which are neatly sitting on a large bookshelf.
So, my question for other nurses: Do you ever reference any of your notes (powerpoint lectures, handwritten notes, handouts, etc.), or since I have all my textbooks are the notes I have overkill? I'm thinking I should just just save myself some grief and get rid of all the extra papers since it's been 8 months since I touched them.

I kept all my notes and study materials. I have been unemployed for awhile and find it necessary to review, review, review. My study guides and notes from school, my textbooks, by DVD's from textbooks, flashcards, NCLEX review books, everything --- all have been invaluable in keeping knowledge fresh or learning/relearning. I consolidated my notebooks and keep it all organized for quick reference. I don't know about you, but I'm sure I didn't absorb 100% of the material we zoomed through in nursing school.
