Study Accountability Thread

  1. Anyone want to join me and post your study goal for the day or week and then we can come back and post when we are done? I have two huge tests Monday and three days to study! I get sidetracked so I thought this would be a good idea.

    Here is my goal for today:
    Make notecards for peds exam on congenital heart defects, read about stuff I don't understand

    I also have a ton of housework-blech.

    I have a Peds exam next week on like a zillion pages of notes.

    My goal for today is to write up notecards on the various immunizations and respiratory dysfunctions.

    Big test over a lot of material on Monday and I'm managing to do anything but study (the weather is GORGEOUS; how can I not be distracted?)....I am going to go open my text right now and at least take the time to compare the Powerpoints against the chapters.

    Good luck all!!

    Just wanted to chime in that I think this is an excellent idea, like the prayer thread! There is a website devoted to housekeeping tips that has goal oriented group support like this too. Anything that makes the individual make their goals concrete and measurable helps to motivate. Good luck all!

    Yes, please. I need to be accountable to someone! I have an advanced med-surg/critical care final that's worth 40% of my grade on the 9th. I want an A! There's an ATI med-surg proctored exam tomorrow. They've been pretty easy in previous semesters, so my goal for tonight is to spend two hours studying and get to bed at a decent time.

    Go! Go! Go! future RNs of America. Study hard!

    My goal for today was to do all the questions on my Peds book website, the questions in the book, and in my various NCLEX study guides. Mission accomplished.

    My goal for tomorrow is to go over my ABG's real quick again just to make sure I have all that down pat which I am pretty sure I do and do drug cards on the respiratory meds.

    Sunday my goal is to go through all the Powerpoints/Notes again and have my friend Q+A me from them. Then GOOD night's sleep as the test is Monday.
