Got Cherokee 4100 unisex drawstring bottoms for 12.99 on amazon. I bought the 7th edition of the perry potter book on amazon for about $10 including shipping. I've been reading it, I really don't think there are major differences between the editions. You could also check the library for a version of the perry potter text.

- Aug 3, '12 by laquain99Quote from learning as i goFromCongratulations! Nursing school is a whole lotta fun and a whole lotta crazy! My advice is:
1. Stay organized. Get a good calendar and write your schedule on it.
2. Do not put off studying or doing assignments. Something else will usually come up and then you will be stressed and scrambling.
3. Figure out how you study best and stick with it. I study best alone and have to avoid the temptation to get sucked into study groups. Study groups = waste of time for me. But so tempting to socialize! Other people like to study in groups.
I have a husband and 3 kids, so not a lot of free time. My priorities are (in this order): school, kids, husband, housework, other relationships. Sounds brutal, but I keep telling myself it's temporary. I worked my butt off to get into nursing school and I am unwilling to sacrifice any of it.
Good luck and enjoy the ride!

- Aug 3, '12 by laquain99Quote from SUNFL0WERWords of encouragement1. Stay up to date on assignments and readings but don't stop there. If you have free time, try to at least start on a future assignment or paper. Doing this will not only give you more free time in the future but also a lot less stress.
2. ALWAYS be ready and prepared for clinical. Showered, hair brushed, iron clothes, white shoes, and a smile. Maintain this appearance every clinical day. Clinical instructors really enjoy seeing their students neat and clean when caring for patients. Patients like this as well!!
3. Stay focused. You know you want to reach that light at the very long end of the tunnel. Keep that dream alive. It may be hard work to get there, but no one wants something that isn't worth working for.
4. Listen well in lecture and take good notes. You can learn a lot just by listening, and not being distracted. Also, we were taught to review our new notes within 24 hours of when we learned the material. Try to go over your notes at least once within this time frame.
5. At all costs, try not to miss a day. Missing a day feels like you missed a semester, especially trying to collect the notes from last time from other classmates.
6. Use available lab times for clinical to your benefit. Usually you only go over a procedure once or twice before your expected to actually preform it. You will also probably have skills check off, so utilizing this lab time is good to go through the procedures once more before being tested on it. It will also help to calm your nerves.
7. Don't procrastinate. I, myself am such a hypocrite on this, but if you do procrastinate, try to find a way not to. If you get bored of one subject, try moving on to another.
8. Try to learn and not memorize teachings. Your brain learns more if you study in different places. On times when I feel myself slacking, or cannot retain the information, I often move places, either from my bedroom to my living room or from the library to a study room.
9. If you need help with something, or have a question, ASK! Instructors are usually very helpful if you ask a question that you have tried to figure out yourself. Also, by asking for help, it shows you are willing to work as a team and not afraid to ask.
10. Don't worry. It is useless. If you have studied enough and practiced a lot, you will be fine. Nerves will come and go, but only you will go on.

- Aug 5, '12 by Fearless_leaderFirst of all, Congrats to all my BC Alumni and all other nursing programs. I'm a pre-nursing student at BC and I'm looking forward to being accepted "when the time comes" for next fall 2013. I'm a frequent "Lurker" here (someone who visits a board but never post). I think the advice you guys give each other is the best, and I'm taking notes as well. God Bless you all. I'll be peeping in on you guys....
