I had the privilege of completing my last first week of nursing school. All I can say is by time you hit your last semester it's pretty much smooth sailing. All the concepts you have learned before come together full circle. Retaining the info becomes easier. You know exactly what to read and what to skip. All the tricks, tips, hacks are used.
Pre Req Student: don't fake it til you make it. Really pay attention during A&P. It will save you so much time and energy when you get into the nursing program.
1st Semester Nursing Student: Keep the excitement alive. Do not let the joy escape too quickly. The more excited you become and the more excited you stay the better off you will be.
2nd Semester Nursing Student: Listen, you survived pharm. That means you can do literally anything! Get rest! Lot's of rest, and stay on top of your reading.
3rd Semester Nursing Student: You are almost at the finish line. All gas no brake. The specialties are fun. Enjoy them!
4th Semester Nursing Student: Won't he do it! Kill it during Advanced Med Surg and prepare for the last leg of the journey.
