No way to prepare, no way to read ahead (our instructors jump all over the book so reading ahead chapter by chapter is a big fat waste of time and brain cells). If there was anything I could tell you it would be to know nursing math (figure out if your instructors want you to use ration/proportion or dimensional analysis and learn it that way. I'm fine with ratio proportion but my instructors want us to use DA and I am having a hard time grasping it ). Brush up on A & P (organ systems mainly, esp cardiovascular). Oh, and lest I forget how much INK AND PAPER I am using! I don't have one but I am getting one, a LASER PRINTER instead of inkjet!
Invested in note cards! I don't think that I would have graduated if I didn't use note cards. Plus to make it easier to get a job after graduation, find a PCA job. I had no nursing experience when I graduated and it took me 6 mos to land my first position. Good luck and enjoy the experience!
