I am in my first semester of nursing school and need advice on how to balance studying theory (lectures, text book material) and practicing skills (vitals, injections). I feel like when I am practicing my skills I should be reading and studying and vice versa, I am having a hard time balancing my time. I feel like I need a lot of practice on the skills, I think the theory comes a little easier because I am used to theory classes. I am just so overwhelmed between watching videos, answering nclex questions, reading, taking bp's, studying, I could work around the clock and still feel unprepared....Please let me know how you balance skills and learning theory! Any advice would be good! Thanks!
