What should I focus on to prepare for the nursing program?

  1. I attend junior college and have nearly finished my pre-requisite course before I apply for the nursing program. I would like to know from everyone's personal experience what to focus on to better prepare myself for the program.

    What was your worst subject in school? If it's math, study math until you can do algebra equations backward and forward in your sleep. (OK,I exaggerate, but you get it.) Math is important for drug calculations, totaling inputs and outputs, and figuring out cardiac outputs if your computer fails you. If you cannot write an understandable sentence, work on that. Writing clearly and succinctly is important for charting. If oral communication is your worst thing, work on that -- you'll be presenting patients to groups of physicians and medical students. Be clear, concise and confident.

    Also polish up your small talk skills, because that will be more helpful than you can imagine.
