Hey guys, thanks for sharing and for the tips and advice. Just to clear up in my 1st semester my lectures were not that great we barely got any, and I don't know how my lectures might be like in my 2nd semester, but I usually would just skim through the chapters (sometimes) when I really needed to know a concept, but I do learn and retain everything when I read, and I'm good at learning from lectures as well. I still love Nursing and everything that has to do with nursing and I find everything very interesting and I am very motivated because Nursing is what I want to do in my life. So I think my problem might be that I cannot maintain my focus for extended periods of time to actually perform the task (reading). So just to recap I have evaluated myself thanks to everybody here, by reading everyone's post's and different opinions on what y'all thought might be my problem, I asked myself: "WTH what IS my problem?" And have concluded that it is the reading not the concept or subject, but the actual task to READ; however this is not new I really have never been too fond of reading... Yikes I'm in trouble. I will however do what someone suggested here, I will start reading and set the length of times I will do so and increase the time little by little. It may sound easy for a lot of people, but really I find this to be excruciatingly difficult, just the thought to actually sit down for whatever time I will put (maybe I'll start with 15 min) and read without making any excuses uuuggghhh dreadful (boring), but it need to get done!
