Hello, My name is Taylor. Today I had my first day of Med Surg and I am, to say the least, overwhelmed. I have the passion for nursing, I basically sleep with my book! I just want to know if anybody has any advice to tackle this semester so I can graduate. I have a 3.8 GPA and dont want it to suffer because of an information overload. Do I write tons of notes to memorize, stop studying for the NCLEX already, keep up with study group, flash cards?! These are my tactics and I hope they all help! Any advice, fact sheets, or clinical experiences will be helpful!
