    I would recommend reading FUNDAMENTALS OF NURSING by KOZIER. I think that would put you way ahead. Try to focus on the different theorists, they are really big on this in the first semester of nursing school.
    Good luck!

    Congrats for having passed the NCLEX. I am preparing to take up NCLEX. Would you know of any really helpful review book/guide to successfully tackle NCLEX? I would really like to be comfortable with meds. What good book can I start out with? Thanks!
    Check out the NCLEX Review forum....

    I took the Kaplan review class as part of my last semester of senior year. The book was great, and we all passed.

    36yo Junior in a BSN program in CO. Looking forward to the last year and then start paying off these loans!

    All of my science preparation has been very helpful but the single most valuable thing for me has been learning how to take tests well. This includes anxiety reduction and good question analysis skills. A course in study/test taking skills with a focus on science courses might be a big boon for you if that is not a strength.

    I'm not a student yet, but I hope to be one starting this fall semester (getting out of the Navy in July).

    But here's what's crazy: Currently, I'm in the Navy onboard a submarine. This and the SEALs are the only positions in the US Military that's 100% male. And I'm in Groton, a 100% submarine base. There's a few females up at base legal and the medical and dental clinics, but overall this base is 95% male, at least.

    Going from a 95% male occupation to a 95% female occupation. Whew. This is going to be quite a role reversal for me.

    Hi everyone. This is my first post & I'm glad that this forum is available. Everyone here has saved me so much time on research. I'm starting the June 23, 2008 Platt LVN class & I can't wait to start this new career. After getting some grant money, I don't mind all the taxes I used to pay LOL. Let me know if I have any classmates on here. Also, keep providing the great information. Thanks.
