    I wish I had managed to relax a little more and enjoy the company of my classmates a little more. Don't get me wrong, a lot of us that graduated in December are still keeping in very close contact and have become life long friends. I mean, I wish we would have made more opportunities to be together and enjoy our time. It really went be so fast, and now we are all going our own separate ways. I also wish I didn't have the delusion that when I graduated I would be able to just pick the job I wanted with no competition or trouble getting it. I have a job, but I thought I could pick ICU and immediately get it. Not so.

    [color=#2f4f4f]i wish i would have known that i didn't have to beat myself up so much for my a&p struggles. i made an 88 and was so upset that i let myself slack towards the end of the semester. i still got into the program. i wish i would have spent more time during the christmas break being happy with family and my boyfriend, enjoying the break to my fullest, instead of being stressed waiting on a call from the school for the lpn program selection. i also wish i would have saved a bit more money, instead of buying supplemental learning materials for a&p when i didn't even touch over half of them. i also wish i would have known how beneficial starting n-clex questions were. i've started them now that i am in the program, but i could have really benefited from starting them as early as two semesters ago for practice and insight on the way the exams will be set up in the program and would have felt more prepared starting out.

    I always advise pre-nursing students to buy a NCLEX review book and start answering questions the day you get your letter of admission, if not before that!

    What is the best NCLEX book to buy? Don't you need to take classes in order to start studying for the NCLEX?
