I just got accepted into nursing school. I do have to work while I'm going part-time. I'm trying to make out a good schedule. How many hours a day of studying is good if I'm in class all day Saturdays and in clinicals two evenings a week?:studyowl:
The amount of study time needed is unique to every individual. Some folks need hours and hours while others need, well, none. The key is to find out what works for you. I would say to err on the side of caution until you figure it out. Personally, I studied about an hour a day 3-4 days/week during my 1st 2 semesters and have maintained a low 90s average without any stress.
Oh yeah, what Daytonite says below about NCLEX prep really helps. I use Davis RN Success regularly and it helps a lot.
