I got accepted to the RN program at my local community college (NHTI, starting this fall!) and I am very excited! Wondering what people recommend that students should brush up on/ study before their classes start? I am currently an LNA at the Hospital and also have done phlebotomy for about a year. Thank you so much in advance!

Other than time management skills, I say enjoy the downtime while you have it. As they say, this too shall pass. Save your energy for the rigor of the program. 

Congratulations on being accepted!

This and congratulations! Relax, clean your home, do laundry and organize your study space. Once the program starts, get cracking as soon as you can and try your best not to fall behind. For now, just enjoy your time off. Congratulations again!

CONGRATS!   and uh relax a bit before school starts?  because once you start it’s a marathon no breaks.  If you really want to study make sure you are solid in Anatomy physiology.

I second the time management skills! They are what will truly get you through nursing school. If you are really hankering to do some studying, I would brush up on some A&P of major organ systems (heart, lungs, kidneys, CNS, neurotransmitters, hormones) and take a look at some dosage calculations if you don't feel strong in basic math. Otherwise, ENJOY your free time before your program starts!
