I don't really study very much. I would say a few days and the day before a test I study about 2 hours. Now clinical paperwork and pass/fail writing assignments...now thats another story. I would say that takes about 6 hours a week to do at least. All that paperwork and writing assignments take up most of my time. I also watch a lot of videos on youtube to whatever we are learning since I learn best by seeing. Watching those things doesn't even feel like studying but I would say I spend and hour or two per week on that kind of thing. We also have to pass 1000 NCLEX questions with above an 80% so I try to get at least 200 of those in per week which can sometimes take me a few hours to do.
Over all though I would say I spend about 22 hours per week in class or clinical. I spend about about 6-10 hours per week preping for clinical, doing clinical paperwork, or writing papers. And spend about 5 hours per week studying for tests, organizing or looking over notes, watching videos or other visual aids, and doing NCLEX questions. I also work about 20 hours per week. I had never really thought about it till now how many hours I was spending doing all of that. I guess after looking it's no wonder I have time for nothing else. All of that leaves little time for fun, but that's ok I keep telling myself I have come this far, I can do anything for 8 more months.
