I can relate to this. It is common in many programs because staff try to say afloat with accreditation and state approval to keep the program going. It becomes more of a priority than the students. Sometimes more than the faculty.
My suggestion is to find some good nursing tutors. They can help you develop good critical thinking skills as you progress through your program. Use them also to set up your day for labs and clinical. The money is worth it.
Invest in Saunder online, or a Lippincott nursing book. Most nursing instructors use these to write the exam. You can purchase an old book online at Amazon.
Find some people in class to exchange numbers with. You don't have to be buddies with them.
Focus on content that will help you answer questions for exams, labs, and clinical. For labs, focus on big steps before a procedure, during a procedure, and after a procedure.
For clinical, understand the schedule. Med passes are often done around procedures and meal times. Find out how the meal or the procedure affect medications given. Write down concepts that you gather after reading about care before a procedure, or after a procedure. ATI books are good for this. You can print them from the ATI website.
For exams, I would suggest a tutor, who can help you develop critical thinking skills. Use the ATI books first as study content.
Make your life easier by understanding the nursing routine. It'll help you through the day no matter how you feel. PM me if you need additional help.
