like you said every one is different. I was able to work part time Thursday and Friday twelve hours both days and then every other weekend i babysat children. I don't think it was too hard for me to do both mainly because i work in a hospital wing where Fridays there are no patients. Basically Fridays i studied, read assigned reading or practiced my skills inside the wing. My boss was ok with this since fridays were dead all the time. I wont lie nursing school is hard and there were days when i wished i could skip going into work completely but. I got through the first semester working and maintained a relationship with my boyfriend. I really believe time management is key you can do anything if you schedule it in properly.
i passed it with an 80 my semester total was 82.8 i have a b- i will take it since it means i get to continue on to next semester. Thank you for the advice though the waiting was brutal.
thank you im trying we are supposed to find out today in the afternoon or tomorrow morning all of us are on edge i am seriously nervous i studied and did everything i could this semester i really did try and do everything and the final was not hard hard but the questions we really had to break them down.and there were 3 questions never discussed but they were not too bad but the class was split on what the answer was
i needed a 66 or 65 on my final to make the 78 passing score. I did really well in my first exam and my last exam but my second and third were not great but my total average going into the final was an 84. I am hoping i pass but this waiting time is really hard i am freaking out thinking about it the exam was nclex based and difficult but i felt i knew my stuff. does any one have any advice ? on what to do or how they felt during their waiting to find out period.
So I just took my fourth exam and on monday we will be having our final. I got a 90 on this last exam and i will work just as hard for the final but i want to know what it takes to get through nursing school with out repeating any courses. I was told that nursing II in our school is like impossible. We were told to day that the questions change drastically and we will need to learn how to better dissect the questions. I have a long term relationship thankyfully no children yet, but how do you get through it all passing and giving time to our loved one.
i will be in the same boat of worrying as of Monday if I pass my final but currently my plan is to study what we learned this semester all through the break so that next semester it is second nature
I use to try but with the cost of shcool my really small hours at work and lack of time to actually go out and buy those gifts I now only get stuff for my bf. my brother my mom & dad and thats it. Mostly because they are the ones that would appreciate any time of gift hand made (knitted) or bought.
What grade is passing? I know you want it to be higher but be happy your passing. School is tough. As for advice it helps me to record the lectures so I can go back and listen to them as I study incase I miss anything. Note cards help too along with study groups. For med/surg we had a workbook that we had to do that helped alot too. Also, NCLEX made easy and NCLEX 4000. Those are great practice questions.
So far my grades are 94 78 &76 we have 4 exams and a final i did my average i need to get a 84 or above to be where i would like to be before the final . this 4th exam includes nutrition ,, f&e , and two other chapters we have not done yet but they are much lighter. four days after 4th exam I have my final which is cumulative. That being said with my current grades I really need to pull off a high grade if I want to pass the semester. Since we are done with clinicals for this semester next week i have two days were i can stay in the library all day (which I plan to ). I made a study sched with a close friend so that we can both study together at her home. Do you guys have any advice on studying for a situation like this i really really need to pass these exams to stay in program so any advice is greatly appreciated.
I don't know if this will help but our instructor told us to think about where you are in the body - are you in the cells, intravascular space? Then think about what you need to do - get fluid into our out of the cells or into or out of the intravascular space?
To remember isotonic, hypotonic and hypertonic I think ISOlated - stays where you put it; hypOtonic - pulls fluid Out of intravascular space; hypertonic i don't have a trick but it pulls fluid into intravascular space, if you know hypo just think the opposite lol. I hope this helps a little!!! it was a hard unit, but our instructor was awesome so I "got" it.
Does anyone have any advice to better understand F&E there is no particular part that i don't understand its the lecture as a whole. So if you have any advice please let me know.
I have a paper due in a couple of days in apa format it is nothing serious mostly two pages long. However my concern is how do I find nursing journal articles related to the topic. Our topics are taken from the joint commision nursing safety goals and mine is
[FONT=ArialMT][FONT=ArialMT]Use proven guidelines to prevent infection of the blood from central lines.
The search library server ie. EbscoHost is down and we cant log on to it or the schools site. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can search for an article it has to be from a nursing journal.
Can I ask how close you are to graduating? I graduate in may and I have had the same thing happen to me in almost all of my classes every semester. I just expect it now a days (as bad as that sounds) At the beginning there is so much time. I honestly only focus on passing at this point. Employers will not ask for GPA. But I try to keep mine up so I am able to go on to get my DNP. Just keep your head up and remember that you are becoming a nurse for a reason, whatever that may be! Good luck!
Ok so I studied the same way used the same tools but there was just so much more material this time around. I litterally passed by a hair. Im not quite sure what to do or go about it. In order to get a 90 average which is what i want for my exam totals (not including final) so that this way I have some slack to play with when I incorporate the final. Can any one add any advice I also think this time I was overwhelemed with everything in clinical for the 1st exam we just started clinical so it was not as bad but now there is just so so so much to do for clinicals.
Since this method worked for you on the first test, keep doing it! I think the only difficult part is accommodating for when you have more information to learn than before. Keeping the momentum going is important as well. You got it!
