I am looking for study tips for an NP program. I am getting my DNP, FNP at the University of Iowa starting this August. I am doing a part-time program (I'm doing 3 years of work in 4 1/2 years) so I can work through school (most of school, anyway).
The last semester of my BSN I was wishing I would've done things differently throughout my college career - I wish I would've had the flashcards and NCLEX books that I bought... I wish I would've had them my freshman year rather than my senior year, so I could use them throughout school rather than just studying for boards. I wished I would've made flashcards and kept my materials. I wish I would've paid more attention in Fundamentals of Nursing, no matter how basic it was.
I don't want to make that mistake again of having so many regrets senior year, I want to have everything I need my freshman year in order to use it throughout my school experience. What materials should I buy right away? Does anyone have tips for studying? Should I work full time or part time?
Thank you so much, I appreciate it!
