Just Got Accepted!!!!

    I just responded to my acceptance letter and accepted my seat into an RN program here in Chicago. Any advice for a new nursing student starting their first semester of nursing school in Jan. 2014???

    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!

    No procrastination. If an assignment is due in four weeks, start working on it now bit by bit. Don't wait until week four.
