Hope school is going great for everybody and that you're not too stressed. This is my question.
This is my first semester in nursing curricula, and so of course we are very heavy on theory. I'm wondering if anyone has any internet resources or any ideas for remembering theories and keeping them separate. Anything that helped you during class? When I say theory I am speaking of nursing theorists (i.e. our old pal Flo, Dorothea Orem, etc.) and developmental theorists (mostly Piaget, Erikson, and Fowler).
I think I have the key points of most of these theories, but I seem to mix them up sometimes. Eek! Our test is next Friday. If anyone can help, I would greatly appreciate it.

When I took my BSN I just remember two key sentences from each theory and made up the rest for the test (essay questions). I always got a good mark, the rest of the answer was bull. I suspect they only read the 1st sentence.
Just my opinion but as soon as you pass the test FORGET all you knew. All the theorists were psych nurses with too many papers to push around- only a passing nod to real world nursing, and most of them last practiced 20 years ago.
Oh yeah, I went to DALHOUSIE UNIVERSITY in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and it SUCKED!
