What is your finals schedule like?/How do you study for finals?

Posted

I am very unhappy with my final exam schedule. :( Just wondering what other schools' schedule looks like aka are all nursing schools so crazy?

As for me, I have a full week of class the week before finals (with an exam in one class) and 2 clinicals on Friday and Saturday (which both include care plans). This leaves just one day (Sunday) to study before finals start! I have one final on Monday, one on Tuesday, and one on Wednesday! I was hoping to have breaks inbetween to study. Now I don't know how I"m going to effectively study for all 3. I'll be really wiped out by Wednesday and that's probably going to be my hardest final!

At my previous university for another degree, I know there was a rule that nothing but finals could be scheduled after dead day. There is no dead day here, but it just seems cruel to schedule 2 clinicals right before finals and then have the 3 finals in a row. :( I'm depressed just thinking about it.

How do you recommend studying for finals?! I've never had a schedule so tight before. Usually I'll spend whole days studying and get lots of rest. Not gonna work this time.

I have a patho/pharm test and a paper due for community nsg the week before finals. I've got a 12 hours shift on Saturday. My finals are scheduled Monday, Tues, and Wednesday. I'm already reviewing for finals. You can't put everything off till the last minute. Just looking forward to having that last final out of the way! Good luck!

Thanks for the reply! It sucks that you have yours MTW, too! It's hard for me to study ahead for finals because I'm also trying to study for the last exams that come right before finals. Auugh. I suppose we will survive somehow. :)
