I am a pre-nursing student (start my 1st class on 5/31/22). I have listened to several of the episodes about test anxiety and the different study plans. It has really helped prepare my brain to go to class. Thank you for the study plan!
Why I don't want my students to make straight A's in nursing school.
Nicole is such an encourager! I love her easy going manner and clear explanantions. She is the only one that that I have encoutered that really teaches "thinking like a nurse" through her study system. This episode was especially good since, I like many students, have found that the study methods used in pre requisite classes just doesn't work with nursing classes! Many of us will experience our first failures and it is a shock! Nicole gives sound advice for getting back up, dusting yourself off and moving forward!
