I'm starting nursing school MONDAY!! I just got all my books last week for my 1st semester and have already started reading them and taking notes. Fundamentals and Nutrition. I also got my Med-Surge books but not really sure when that all starts. So, is it overkill to be reading and taking notes before I get into the classes? Will the professors pick and choose what they want to teach in the books? I'm super excited and want to get as 'ahead' as I can in knowing the material. I also got a Diagnostic Laboratory Test w/ Nursing Implications book and just started looking over it too. Is it good to go into class with an idea of what they are teaching?
