I just graduated May 5, 2012 from Nursing School. I could NOT wait for NS to arrive any faster the second I found out I was accepted to the program. I was so eager and excited to learn and practice what I was taught! Although you may not think it, time will fly by!
In regards to A/P...the professors are going to expect you to have a BASIC understanding once you first start NS. The further you get into your nursing courses, the professors are going to expect you to know and understand more. Your instructors should be giving you a syllabus that includes a schedule of what you'll be learning each week. This is where you need to take advantage and keep a couple steps ahead by reviewing that basic A/P. The books we used for Med-Surg and High Acuity were the same and I absolutely LOVED them! "Brunner & Suddarth's Medical-Surgical Nursing" by Lippincott. It included discs as well as an awesome website (thePoint). The website includes the book itself, NCLEX-style questions, and videos/pictures (which really helped me).
Keep a calendar and plan out when you can study. This helped me because I worked throughout NS. The calendar was convenient not only for me to see what each month looked like, but my live-in boyfriend appreciated it as well. I also enjoyed the satisfaction of putting a line through each day I completed..."one more day down, one day closer to graduating!"
NS. Yes, there were days from hell, but those days made my completion worth it in the end. You have a large group of support here on AllNurses, so take advantage of it!!!
Best of luck to you my dear!!!
