Tips for second semester of nursing school :-)


Hey everyone !

I will be entering my J2 (junior year 2nd semester) soon. I was wondering if I could get some tips on how to be successful in the second semester. I will be having genomics, med surg, clinical and diversity class. I want to prepare myself beforehand so that i don't have any trouble comprehending information.

Also, i have heard from many students that the first semester is the basis for all the future courses in the nursing school. Many second semester students in my school have had trouble in med surg and genomics class and they say that these two classes are the most difficult ones.

Any tips on how to study effectively and get good grades in second semester would be highly appreciated!

All I can say is, do whatever you did that led to success in your first semester. The second semester can be a killer though. Med Surg II almost did me in. But believe it or not, it does get a little easier when you get past the first few semesters. Just keep studying hard, prioritize your time, stay focused and you'll do fine. :up:
