Grades in nursing schoolRegister Today!
- by LVN/RNBridge Mar 2Hello All,
Reaching out to students that have a hard time not getting straight A's.
Here's my situation- I am a bridge student (LVN-ADN). Currently doing the role transitions class. This class is suppose to be more of a review of LVN school sprinkled with new information as we move toward the RN role. I graduated my previous program and took NCLEX toward the end of 2011.
With this, I feel that since I am somewhat recent out of school that I should be able to maintain good grades. First exam I received an A, but yesterday midterm I revived a low B:-( All questions were scenario based and I studied like crazy. A "B" would not normally get me down so much, but this early in the game is scary.
Does anyone have any suggestions of study material (beside practice NCLEX that I do daily) that might help me get through these type of questions? I honestly felt like I was taking NCLEX again without the 6 weeks of studying that I did then.
- Mar 2 by gatoraims RNReview how you are studying. When I did I found that making mind maps (concept maps) really helped me focus on what was important. This is how I started to study and my grades did improve.
- Mar 2 by LVN/RNBridgeAhh- I didn't think about using concept mapping. That will be great for med surg. Just thinking of how I can implement mapping in the role transitions class.
Thanks so much for the suggestion:-)
- Mar 28 by lawrencencandy@LVN/RNBridge I'm really curious if your 100% positive that LVN 30 unit option and RN CA license will look the same?
- Mar 28 by LVN/RNBridge@lawrencecandy I'm sorry, we were not talking about a 30 unit option...were we? This discussion was about grades in nursing school :-)
- Apr 22 by LVN/RNBridgeQuote from lawrencencandyGreat question! I'm not sure exactly how the card looks for a 30-unit RN. I only know that Ca. Is the only state that still offers these programs with other states not accepting RN's that take the 30-unit option. Best to contact the BRN for the exact details.
Hehehe, I just wanted to know if the RN license card of 30 unit option the same as the regular RN, or will there be a word "30 unit option"
