I saw a thread I thought was interesting on this forum a while ago, but I wanted to put my own twist on it and ask you guys what you thought. It's about the testing style of nursing schools -- in regard to "critical thinking" style questions. What are your study habits and personal strategies for getting the best grades on the exams (and, of course, learning how to be a better nurse)? I'm curious to know. Although I haven't started nursing school yet, I keep hearing people tell me this and it's worrying me a little bit. I personally have developed a very effective method for studying science, english, and all the rest... but the emphasis hasn't been on applying the material; if we are expected to "think" like the professors, then what can students do to see the bigger picture and bring the "meaning" out of the material?
Thanks a ton for your help!!
