Well, I am just starting as a nursing student, but here is what I'm doing:
1) Working on the list of medical terms provided to me by the school's directors. (Need to do better on this!)
2) Getting other things in life organized/cleared, so that I can be very time-efficient while in school. I'm talking about spring cleaning, kitchen organization, birthday cards bought ahead, etc.
3) Getting my nutritional status in order. (Actually, I have many reasons to do this, and didn't consider nursing school prep one of them, until I realized that some fogginess I was experiencing has disappeared since I've gotten off Diet coke.)
