Hello! I will be starting my first semester of nursing school at Carroll University this Fall 2016 and I will be going in as a sophomore. I'm super nervous and I was wondering how should I study for the classes? OR does anyone have techniques at how they studied which was really helpful? What helped you get through your first semester?My sister has been scaring me haha She said I will have no life, I'll have to cut off my boyfriend, and I will have to study like 40 hours a week like a full time job! I struggle a bit trying to retain so much information at one time or short period of time, and then I end up stressing myself out. So I wanted to figure out ways I can decrease stressing myself out and having a consistent study pattern that I can retain everything I learn! I do like flashcards, but sometimes it can be very overwhelming because of how many I must make. I also have a big dry erase board that is very helpful. I know fall semester 2015 I just transferred to this school and took ANP and could not figure out how to study for it, so my grade wasn't the best, then by 2nd semester I figured out a great system and got an A in the class! So I realized if I figure out my groove I do much better haha. Thank you for all the insight!!
