I wished that I have learned how to study and that I had studied harder. I wished that I had turned in all of my assignments on time. I wished that I have time management skills and that I stuck to it. I also wished that I had a better grasp on College Algebra and Human A&P. These two things are like the meat of Nursing, especially Human A&P. My advice is that if you discovered that science coures in college are hard (especially Human A&P) and you have a hard time passing them, then you should stop because it only gets harder as you go. I am not saying this to discourage anybody. But, this is the truth. These classes build
on each other. They build and build until you are done with the program. Then, you have to take and pass
the NCLEX Exam in order to become a nurse. I call the NCLEX Exam the "Ultimate Test" because all through nursing school
, you are gearing yourself for that test.
I have heard people say that nursing exams are harder than the NCLEX Exam. Which, I think is good in a way because it prepares the students for the worst so that they can handle the easier stuff. These exams makes students aim for the moon so if they should fall, they will fall among the stars (which means, they can still pass the NCLEX).
Also, it is best to work part time. That way you will have more times on your hands to study and succeed in these classes.
