Thank you Corazon and congratulations on your up-coming graduation!
I just completed my first week today and I am quite overwhelmed right now - I am not concerned with the content but the amount of work and when to complete it. Any advice on organizational skills would be very much appreciated
Don't worry, the first week is always the most overwhelming. They will ALWAYS bombard you with things your first week. I just had my first day of the last 8 weeks today and it was just as overwhelming as always! I always make a to do list of the things that I can get done right away (before the lecture). I make every attempt to read all the chapters but sometimes you just have to skim. Get a good NCLEX book
(Saunders is my fave) and always use it to study for exams. Keep a planner handy too!
I am not the most organized person but I have gotten through the program with a 3.9. You will be fine
Don't let them scare you, you WILL have time for a life, you will have time to do your laundry, you will have time to take a weekend vacation here and there. PM me if you have any questions, these boards helped me a lot when I first started!
