First of all…congratulations!!! You have worked SO HARD to get where you are and you deserve a HUGE pat on the back! I remember the feeling when I learned I’d been accepted into the program…a HUGE relief and SO much stress was lifted. But then….I started to get nervous…I’d heard rumors about how hard nursing school is, so I did what I do best. Study! Here’s a short list of useful topics to review before nursing school starts so you can keep your brain sharp and ensure you have the basic foundation knowledge you need to absolutely, positively, ROCK your program!
One of the things nursing students struggle with is staying healthy when life, school, work, family, studying, school, clinical, school is just so darn busy! I am a big believer in taking care of yourself (if you don’t believe me, see this post), and over the past couple of years have focused on revamping my entire lifestyle into one focused on vitality and wellness. Here are a few products I use daily that keep me going in the right direction (and away from the gallon of ice cream someone left in my freezer…haha!)
If you’re a nurse or a nursing student, there is one thing I can be sure of. You are one busy bee. Sometimes your schedule doesn’t allow you the wonderful luxury of a delicious, home-cooked meal so you may find that you often eat “on the run.” Rather than reach for something naughty (salt and vinegar chips, I’m talking to you!), I’ve put together a quick review of some good and good-for-you nutrition bars to help fuel you through your busy days.
If my first words about a pair of socks are “ohmygod,” then you know these are some awesome socks. I kept experiencing achy legs after my shift so I decided to break down and buy some compression socks. But, I didn’t want just any ol’ compression socks, I wanted stylish socks that would complement my boring navy blue uniform.
As a nursing student I had an insatiable appetite for books and spent more of my student loan than was necessary buying loads of books…if it had to do with nursing school it was in my library. Eventually I realized that I didn’t have time to read all those books but did keep a few tried and true workhorses, one of which I am reviewing today in the First Ever SANS product review! Every couple of weeks I’ll review a product that is crucial to my nursing school and working nurse sanity…reap the benefits of my hard labor and just trust me on these!
