Starting the LVN program in August and would like prep material...

  1. 0
    Hello I'm relatively new to this forum and I recently received my acceptance letter and will be starting the LVN program in August. I would like to be able to prepare now till then. I have purchased a NCLEX PN book and have been glimpsing through it. If you can suggest other material that I should study or brush up on, it would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    Medical terminology is invaluable, because there will be many times where you can figure out the word by knowing the roots, etc. During tests, it might help you make the right choice!
    Also as has been said: a & P! Also intro to pharmacology, maybe some youtube videos to get familiar with the jargon if you've never had any of that before.
    Can you get any of your books early? That has helped me a lot.

    Find out what classes you are taking and what books you will need and take it from there. Majority programs start out with A&P and Fundamentals I so try and look over those things and congrats on your acceptance

    Make sure get the Saunders NCLEX review book.. Great book to review after your first semester so you get a feel of how the NCLEX tests.

    @ Diva La Juicy: Thank you! I will definitely do that! @Cece Star 5: I have already purchased the book although I had to stay within my budget so I bought the 3rd edition instead of the 4th but I'm sure it will come in handy either way in being able to rationalize future test questions.

    Yes... that's where I seemed to of had difficulty doing when I was working and taking prereqs for the nursing program and I was going to school part time then. Not too sure how I am going to do it working and going to school full time. My boyfriend and I have talked and decided that I should go PRN at where I currently work. All I know is it's going to be a long year
