I am a returning student who has FINALLY completed all of my pre-reqs for an ADN program (YAY!), and since I missed the application deadline for my school's fall program I will be taking a hiatus until (hopefully) January 2012. I'll be working as a tech on the CVIC unit of my local hospital as well as nannying. I am wondering what kind of things I should be reviewing before beginning nursing school in January....should I review patho and begin reading drug calculations? I know they have quite the reputation. Any advice from nursing students (first semester to new grads) or nurses would be great. I will go crazy if I don't use my noggin for 8 months!!!
