    lol...not everyone on Adderrall has been diagnosed with ADHD. Its sold on the blackmarket and has been labeled the "study drug"....
    This guy in particular bragged about pretending to have ADHD..AND GOT A SCRIPT.

    Trust.

    Anyone with an average IQ and the ability to study for hours on end can become a nurse or a doctor. The content isn't hard. It's in-depth. A big difference.

    This is my first year in nursing school and it's really more about time management, we have unbelievable amounts of reading that we need to get done every week, then there is the preparation for seminar, lab and clinical which is very time consuming. But i'm very passionate about it and I'm enjoying it very much

    I would also like to add that, while I agree with those who have pointed out that much of college is mostly rote memorization (especially your 2 yrs of core classes), I must say I learned more in my 2 semesters of A&P than all of the other classes combined. Yes, we memorized body regions and parts, and Systems, but my professor encouraged us to learn the back story, per se - not only wanting us to know what does what, but WHY does it do that and different scenarios. He loved increase/decrease questions - stuff like, "Effect of increased secretion of renin from juxtaglomerular apparatus on urine volume;" "Effect of decrease in pH on amount of oxygen bound to hemoglobin;" or something like, "Which is greater: Permeability of the distal convoluted tubule to water when ADH is present vs Permeability when ADH is absent." He really encouraged us to think - not just memorize. And while to me, getting an A seemed sort of easy, that does not mean I did not take them seriously - I still found many of my classes to be very challenging.

    How many books do you have to read/carry for your nursing classes?

    This was an addendum to a previous post in the same thread, but that one was apparently deleted by Allnurses Admin - I have no idea why they would do that, since I said nothing offensive to anyone - but now, this post might not make much sense and if Allnurses wants to delete this one too, feel free

    I'm in an LVN and I must say the hardest part of nursing school is managing it with the rest of my life. However I think it's on the easy side because it's based on critical thinking which is my forte. In the end it's a matter of opinion and I think we all come to allnurses.com to share our opinions, struggles, triumphs, etc. So for those of us who are lucky and find it easy, hoorah! For those who don't, it's OK the more work you put in the more you will get out of it. I love nursing and have no desire to be a doctor nor do I think I could make it. But there is something that comes natural to me for nursing. I struggle with small portions of it but must admit that the effort I put into studying is minimal. I know when I go into a BSN program next year that must change but know that my experience as an LVN will be priceless.

    I've heard many say that - that more than anything else, it's about time management and balancing school w/ everything else that goes on in life. If you're already an LVN, then I'm sure you'll do great in your BSN program. I'm only a CNA (which is a requirement for the BSN program I am starting in June), and I know I am really going to have to learn good time-management skills to manage all of the class work and clinical assignments. I know it will not be easy, but I look forward to it.

    I'm anticipating that it will be tough. So much to know, in so little time. Not to mention, I can't forget what I've learned in the previous semester and apply it to the next. For now, I just have a large book bag. But, I'm thinking of getting a rolling pack.
