Hello there everyone!
I have been lurking on this site for quite some time. I finally realized that now would be the best time to go back to school, I have a secure home, my bills are getting paid at the moment, and I got my student aid stuff worked out (FINALLY). I have been out of high school for four years and this is all new to me. No one in my family has ever been to college, and thus I have no guides on what to do.
To be brief, I was accepted at Jefferson Community and Technical College. I plan to enroll full-time on July 13 for the fall semester. Now my questions pertain to getting into the course, what to do prior, and everything in between now and graduation. I am at a loss as to what to do now that I am IN the college.
I picked up a copy of McGraw-Hill's Guide to Nursing School
Entrance Exams, and I have been studying that for a few hours everyday. I can't believe what I forgot in four years! Fractions, word problems, slope forumla, once so easy, are now killing me! I was wondering if anyone has found a good book/website that can offer me practice worksheets and some more in-depth guides. This book is alright, but some of the answers are wrong and it doesn't go into a whole lot of detail on some of the finer points.
So question #1: What subjects does the math on the NLN-PAX RN cover? Topics would be grand.
Question #2: How in depth is the vocab that is tested? Can you give me examples and where I would best study for this topic?
I have alot more to say, but I must head off to work! I still have so many questions!
Thanks for your time~
I still need to take up some more of it however, ha!
