    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.

    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!
