I'm hoping some nurses or nursing students can help me. I've already applied to nursing school for the fall and I'm currently playing the "waiting game". It's driving me nuts just going to work every day and no school. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of things I could do while I'm waiting to hear back that would help nursing school go a little more smoothly for me... I was thinking of ordering some disease flashcards from amazon and really get down the diseases (S&S, treatment, virulence factors, etc.). And, I was going to order a book to practice clinicals (Clinical Microbiology Made Ridiculously Simple). Will I be wasting my time and money on these things or is it a good investment?
