I been reading the advice on all nurses for a while now, but I need some advice of my own please.
I'm hoping someone can give me advice on effective ways to help study for my A&P course. I have tried flashcards, recording lectures, re-wrting notes, studying til dawn, etc, and I'm lucky to make a 70 on a test. I know the classes are hard and are designed to "weed-out" people, but I'm just so fustrated! I've passed my a&p I course (barley), now I'm in a&p II but it seems like I'm missing some key element to mastering how to study for this class. I know I'm not stupid, but I get upset when I bust my a** studying and walk away with a 60. Ironically, I do fine in labs ( all a's or b's), but I just can't get passed lecture. I've even talked to my professor about it, but the tips she gave me did not help improve my grade. This whole thing just makes me really wonder if I can pass nursing school if I can't even pass a&p II.
If anyone can offer any effective ways to study that they don't mind sharing that really helped them I would greatly appreciate it.

I just want you to know that I have been there with my Mother and Hospice, the fact that you are in school right now is AMAZING, as the year my Mom passed was an absolute blur for me.
YOU WILL GET THROUGH THIS...THIS CLASS DOES NOT DETERMINE the kind of nurse you will be, and believe me, you will bring a level of compassion that most have never experienced. (I am speaking from experience)
Hang in there, don't beat yourself up you are going through a lot. One foot forward at a time, and like you said, you can always take it again if you have to, I had to take chemistry and algebra TWICE!!
