Time management is the key. Hit the ground running. Every semester will have a different vibe. You will feel overwhelmed at times but stay focused on the goal. To pass.

you will do great... Just study, study, and when you done studying.... study some more! The whole nursing school thing is a process and a test. they throw a care plan at you the same week you have what will feel like the hugest test you have ever taken!! its all a test!! They are trying to prepare you for nursing and STRESS is a BIG part of it along with Time managment, setting priorities, and of course critical thinking.

You can and will do it, just apply yourself.

Study and manage your time wisely. I found my home to be the worst place to study--too many distractions (and bed!) so I holed myself up in the library for hours on end. Get your care maps done early! Study continuously! NAC I is the weed-out course, IMHO. Stay focused. Also, I chanced upon some really great friends and study partners that semester, though I generally do not like studying with a group. It was in fact a huge help.

At least 1/3 of your class will not make it. Making sure you are with the passing group is gonna take work, sweat, tears, and yes a little bit of luck. :yeah:
