1. Classes start back on the 7th for me. Our Pathophys will class will be starting with pregnancy and childbirth. I'm not particularly interested in this topic though I know I need to learn the material for the NCLEX. (I'm in a MSN bridge program and will be specializing in critical care next year.) My question is how do you study something you're not particularly interested in but you must master?

    Decide that the subjects are some that you MUST learn, and jump in with both feet. I found that just doing it was the only way that I was going to learn Chemistry and Math.

    You might be able to find a study buddy who excels in those subjects. Try that, and see what happens.

    All of the subjects will get us to our goals, and we have to learn them even if we don't really like them.

    Hope all goes well for you.

    I would imagine that we are just going to have to dive in and do what we can.
    If we know we HAVE to know it....
    then even though it may not be something we desire to learn, it will help us in our nursing careers.
    Marla had some pretty good ideas~~~ I tried, but it sounded rediculous what I was trying to say! Follow Marla's advice and you (and I) will be fine!

    I think of it like this: What you may learn and hate, may save.
    I really hate math, however, it helped me understand biochem and micro.
    But that does not mean that I hated every bloddy minute of it!
