as suggested above..
in addition, when taking notes from the book, use the power points as your guide.. make sure you understand what the questions is asking, know your content (symptoms, meds, rn interventions, etc), pay attention to the lecture, and take notes from it.. Do not procrastinate on your required readings.
Practice math problems, those are given points and don't take them for granted.. also study for the quizzes, and try to get 100 for those
As per the clinical site, it really depends what work for you. I know they offer trinitas, and overlook hospital.
