Welcome to Nursing School!
Nursing school can be difficult. But you’re in the right place.
Welcome, nursing students (or pre-nursing students). You’re taking a look at the up and coming eBook, “Smart Strategies for Nursing School: How to Study, Manage Your Time, and Still Have a Life.”
As a former nursing student and current registered nurse, it’s my belief that you can be successful and happy throughout nursing school and into your nursing career. All too often, I see nursing students running ragged, anxious, and overwhelmed by their course load.
Students fear the worst after every exam. They run around like a chicken with their heads cut off, unsure of how to study, with papers falling out of their binders, and a planner marked all over but with zero continuity or knowledge of what’s coming up.
I personally experienced not knowing how to study in my first semester. I spent countless hours talking about how to organize all the assignments, readings, exams, classes, and clinicals. I wanted to know how on earth I would be able to do everything nursing school asked of me on top of spending time with my loved ones and generally taking care of myself, i.e. exercise and nutrition.
I knew nursing school would be heavy. I watched my step-dad go through it right before me. What I saw was a man in his office almost all the time. And I didn’t like that. I was bound and determined to find a way to study, manage my time, and still have a life throughout nursing school.
Now that I’m on the other side of nursing school, I can honestly say that I was successful. I was so happy to discover that it’s possible to experience nursing school and still have a life that I wanted to share that with other nursing students. My hope is to shift the paradigm around nursing school. I want to eliminate the old, worn out beliefs that it’s an all consuming two years of your life and that you have to be fat, lazy, and unhealthy throughout it.
This is simply not true.
On early August, I’ll be launching my eBook, “Smart Strategies for Nursing Students: How to Study, Manage Your Time, and Still Have a Life.” Up until that point, you can return to this blog to get snippets and previews of the book as well as extra hints and tips!
In addition, I’ll be posting videos to my YouTube channel. Stay connected via email to be one of the firsts to find out of the book’s release.
