Hi, I need some one who has been through it to share some advice with me. I made it through my first semester of nursing school with a 3.0. I am nervous about August though. I start clinicals in Med-surg, orthopedics, same-day surgery, OR, and school health screenings. I am nervous about clinicals, do anyone have suggestions on how to be the best clinical nursing student possible, stories on your clinical experiences you care to share? I am also nervous about my classes I will have professional practice1, health management1, pharmacology, and nursing seminar. How can I keep all these drugs and diseases separated from one another. I know it is a lot of memorizataion but I also want to be sure that I am learning and retaining the info so how did some of you learned and get through. Do anyone care to share study suggestions and tips. I know the most important one is to form a study group with a few students and always be sure to pick at least one person who knows a little more than what you know. Any other tips I need all the tips I can get to calm my nerves down because I am so nerouvs and anxious to get the next semester started already and I have not been out of school for this semester for even a week yet.
