This is my first semester of med/surg. and i was wondering how do u study for it. the information is so detailed. what is important to know. are nursing diagnosis, health promotions important. just trying to find out how to study early on
our professors stressed interventions and knowing out the client presents. Know what is unique about the disease and how it differs from another disease in the same area that you are studying (resp, GI, etc). We also had to know drugs, but it wasn't stressed as much. Know prevention and patient education, too.
ETA: If surgery is involved, we had to know pre-op and post-op nursing interventions. Pretty much, everything in the book was fair game, as far as our exams.
