Nursing Writings

My name is Ashley Victoria.
I live in Los Angeles, CA. This is my Nursing blog of all things Nursing school. Experiences, study aids, & break outs of nursing humor.

This is one of those study challenges in Nursing school. Nursing is a career based off a paramilitary background that requires you to learn time management. Learning to manage your time well while going through Nursing school by being on a schedule will help you better organize all parts of your life which also includes how you study. 

Study in smaller chucks such as every 30-50 minutes with a 10 minute break allows your brain time to absorb the information and enhances your recall as well for short term memory. It’s called linkage learning. Every time you learn new material, break it up into smaller parts. Cover section by section with small breaks in between and not forgetting to review the previous sections you just covered before going onto the next. I guarantee you put this study method into effect and your test performance as well as grades will go up. 

Cramming in the last 30 minutes before the test will not get you very far in Nursing school like it did in traditional college classes. Always think the long term outcomes of your career as a Nurse. You are a health advocate, educator, and doing a job that often has people’s lives are hanging on the line. One of my best clinical instructors taught me recently “To be a good nurse is to know your skills. To know your skills is to understand how and why you are performing those skills to your particular patient cases. To be knowledgable of your skills is to have complete POWER!” 

Something to take into consideration before you decide to cram for your next nursing test.
