Hey there everyone, I am finished with my pre reqs for nursing school! Finally! I am in fundamentals of nursing right now and it doesn't have clinical yet, its just a 3 hour lecture. Next semester I start clinicals.
Anyways, I am trying to study for my exams but I'm confused on how to study for these. In my science pre reqs I studied by using flash cards and it helped a lot. I am a visual learner so sitting in lecture isn't too beneficial for me. A lot of people are telling me fundamentals is more about learning the concept of the material, but how do you study for concepts?
I bought the test success book to help me learn to think critically. My class is using the perry and potter book. I really need help with studying. Its not really registering in my head and even if I know definitions and terms, I feel I am wasting my time studying the terms since the exam questions are going to be nclex.
I'm just scared I'm wasting all this time preparing for the test and feel like none of the material I study will be on the test the way I study them. I'm having trouble breaking down the info and I need some advice! Helppp!
