Thank you for your comments! I really appreciate them! I am now 1.5 months into my first semester in nursing. @Lolita34 I too am a non traditional with 3 kids and it is crazy!! This semester I only have 8 nursing credits and I study, read, prep for class/lab about 6-8+ hours 7 days a week. I am just taking a break right now, as it is Sunday at 9:43 and have been doing school work since 7:15 am.
I appreciate all the items @Alobar listed. We have one classmate who has taken the lead and has pretty much done everything you suggested (FB page, Quizlet e-index cards, etc.) except for Dropbox. I will bring that up to my classmate. I always have been and still am very organized, planner, day planned out with what needs to be done, so that's something you definitely need in nursing school.
I came into the program with a 3.97, and I've already had my 2 first exams...no longer getting straight As, the Bs have started to creep in
but we were warned by our caring instructors that A students would probably become B students..so I will have to get over the need for As, pretty quickly (I think I've done that now!)
Although it is a lot of work and stress...I feel so blessed to have been given the opportunity to do this, especially at this stage of my life.
Best wishes to all!!
