Tips for Final med surg exam !!

Posted

I am A THIRD SEMESTER NURSING STUDENT and I'm trying to make it to my last semester. I am currently struggling in my Med surg class . I make study sheets and constantly study for days but it seems to not be helping . Any good advice please let me know .

Show up on time! I was an hour late to mine :)

I also think it's helpful to read the material. You get more depth of understanding by reading than you do trying to memorize bits and pieces of study guides and power points.

If what you are doing "seems to not be helping" then you may need to try another study method. What does "seems" mean? Have you used your current study methods and earned failing grades? "Seems" doesn't really provide any information. Either you are faiing or you are not based on your current study methods. This may be the amount of time, the method, your own IQ, etc. Ask your fellow students what works for them. Ask your instructor. If you aboslutely cannot get it then you can find a career in something else.

First off don't come on here telling me to find a career in something else .... Next time do not comment if your going to be so rude . You can take your negativity somewhere else honesty. AND SECOND, I'm not failing but I'm not getting the grades I was hoping to get .
