Class starts Monday!!
- 1Mar 9, '13 by kikiz147I'm so excited and nervous about my program starting on Monday march 11th! Any tips on how to get started on the right foot?

Recording classes enabled me to listen to lectures in the car and by the end of school I hardly opened my textbooks, I only made A's and B's. I hope this helps! Find a good study buddy and make sure you have some time aside for yourself every day, if only it's 5 minutes to breathe in and meditate.

Find a good group of students to study with, get into a routine, understand that your life will revolve around school for the most part. Nursing school is tough, but once you get into the swing of things, you'll be fine!
- 0Mar 15, '13 by kikiz147Thank you for all the tips! I would love to get a tape recorder but they are against the programs rules. PA is weird with that. Luckily I am a pretty decent note taker and I'll make flash cards out the wazoo. We had a two day orientation and this up coming Monday we will dive right into basic nursing skills in the lab. I'm excited! Also, I just found out that the PA board of Nursing has changed the LPN scope of practice to include IV therapy. More clock hours!! Well, wish me luck!
