Take it one day at a time and don't get behind. I'm not very self disciplined so I typed my notes EVERY SINGLE DAY as soon as I got home. There were always words or concepts that I had left out while I was writing them down which I could correct or elaborate on when I was typing them up. Another advantage of this is that my notes were clear and legible so if anyone missed a class, we could make copies for them. If there is something you don't understand, get it clarified right away. I picked a study partner before I started nursing. We thought much alike and discussed and talked about everything we were learning ad nauseam. I have to say - when I was in nursing school, I did almost nothing else. Don't make yourself crazy, but do stay focused. Good luck!
