Hey there, Chastity! You’re welcome
I recommend studying for 30-60 minutes every day the month before your TEAS. Then 3-4 days before your exam date, study hardcore. You can do it!!! Believe in yourself.
And yes, working part-time is doable! There’s a number of folks in our class who do (I’m not one of them, haha). But 3rd and 4th semesters, not so much haha.
And Halfcourt95 I think that’s really ambitious that you want to take physics and O-chem during nursing school, but I think you’re kind of setting yourself up there and you might be seriously underestimating how seriously rigorous this program is. Because it’s not “just studying," although you’ll be doing an immense amount of that, lol. And the content you do study and test on isn’t anything like what you’re used to from your prerequisites (it’s harder). And if you’re not studying, you’re in skills lab. If you’re not in skills lab, you’re in clinical. If you’re not in clinical, you’re in sim lab. You’re always behind! Haha. You will work harder for an A than you ever have before. One thing I think might be good to know is that if you do get in to the nursing program, you’re going to be with 39 other classmates who are as smart as you, have worked as hard as you, and at LEAST one (but probably more) person/s will be even smarter than you and worked even harder than you (I 100% guarantee this, I had to learn this myself lol) ;D ….and not a single person will feel like nursing school isn’t extremely hard work. It’s a very humbling experience, for many reasons.
But the beautiful thing is that once you’re in, you don’t have to be competitive anymore. In fact, you will do much better if you’re less competitive and work as a team-player. Your friends in nursing school quickly become your family…. and you will need them
Wishing everyone the best…. T-3 days until the application opens!!!
