    first, hugs to you! i think you should check out the nursing student assistance forum. there are a lot of seasoned students, nurses, even instructors who might be able to help you out, and give you some good study ideas and resources. good luck!

    First off-breathe.......

    So what is the problem? Are you not doing well on the tests? The first thing I recommend is DO NOT CRAM-study everyday.

    The second thing is to buy a supplemental book-I bought Fundamental Success-I went through each section ( I belive it has 3 chapters to each section-I don't have it in front of me, I let someone from school borrow it). And answer each question, if you get it wrong it tells you the rationale-so for each question I would get wrong-I would study it again....I wouldn't go on to the next question until I learned it.

    I "teach" each section to someone-my dog, my cat, the wall....if you can teach it you know it.

    Nursing classes are not just memorization, it's about understanding why nurses are doing what they do...

    Also keep in mind-patient safety is a priority

    PS I have an 88% in Fundamentals-I am by no means the smartest human being-I'm average at best..but I understand NCLEX type questions because of studying and understanding the information-plus I probably over study
