I need some suggestions regarding Nursing School. I am in my summer session of MED SURGE. I have never failed a test or quiz in this program until this semster. Some how what I study doesn't appear on the test. My studying skills need to change somehow. Did anyone out there have problems with this semester and get a shock like I am getting. What did you do to get through this semester.
I had the same problem adjusting to med/surg. The only thing that was able to pull me through was using DaytoNite's critcal thinking sheet. It combines the pathophys, pharmacology, and A&P all in one area. It helped me understand the whole process of let's say, heart failure.
Thanks for the reply, where do you find the daytonite critical thinking sheets is it something I could pick up at Barnes and Nobel. I am willing to try anything.
here is the Link.

i am here on allnurses. here is my critical thinking flow sheet for nursing students which you can click on, open, copy and print out to use in studying any medical disease or condition.
you should also read the information and view the weblinks on this thread: https://allnurses.com/general-nursing-student/looking-test-taking-224581.html - looking for test taking strategies. always do a de-briefing with your instructor after a test to discuss the questions you answered incorrectly to help you understand where your critical thinking went wrong so you can correct yourself the next time.
many times the multiple choice questions on tests are what are called application type questions which involve pulling knowledge of a number of different subjects into answering correctly. what makes this complicated is that you are not told what subjects to consider in answering. in general, consider:
good luck on your next test!
Thank You So much !!!!! What a blessing .
Boyer, if you want some excellent info. I would suggest you read Daytonite's post. There is a wealth of information throughout her posts, I have learned a lot through the last couple of years from her.
