That comes naturally to me, i was never one of those 3.99999999999999 GPA students who memorize everything on a page from a book and get an A on every test. However, jsut b/c nursing school isnt structured like anything eles, i find myself excelling b/c the tests require you to think. Not cram and memorize. As far as working going, i would say it is possible... IF your job allows you to be able to study while your there. Thats the only reason it has worked for me thus far.
