First test tomorrow!
- 0Jan 28, '13 by RNstudent13reneeI have my first ever nursing school exam tomorrow (Fundamentals of Nursing), I'm so nervous and terrified I haven't studied enough. I also don't know what else to study, I feel like I know so much but what if I don't know enough??! Gah, freaking out here...anyone have any advice, tips, stories, humor, suggestions, ways not to puke (haha)?

I would listen to the most comforting song and drown out all the chaos going on around me (all the other students talking anxiously about the exam.) It was my relaxation teqnique. I would put on a very personal song and think about my family. That soothed my nerves

I always told my students the best advice about prepping for any testing scenario (examination, lab check-off, NCLEX, first job...) is to go to the refrigerator. (No, not to pig out on chocolate milk and butter pecan ice cream.) It's to remove the mayonnaise jar and read what's on the lid:
"Keep cool, do not freeze."
