Nursing School Planner


Get Flowers | Get Watercolor | Get Paisley


Because it is my passion to empower nursing students to succeed, I created the EVERYTHING PLANNER. This is the planner I wish I’d had while in nursing school, and it was born of my need to keep a busy schedule organized and my love of making lists.

Our most recent version is JUST GORGEOUS, with three amazing covers to choose from! This 12-month dated academic planner (Jan 2018-Dec 2018) features everything a busy nursing student (and pre-nursing student) needs to succeed.

This beautiful printable planner features a muted, sophisticated color palette and simple yet effective layout. Measuring 8.5×11, you’ll love all the available space to plan your busy days!

  • two-page monthly spread with major US holidays, and a space to remind yourself of your new good habit for the month
  • two-page weekly spread includes large, lined space for each day in vertical format
  • each week includes space for multiple lists to keep home, school and assignments on track…your busy life just got manageable!
  • special area just for keeping track of the things that matter most…what you track is up to you (diet, exercise, meditations, reading assignments, kids’ schedule!)
  • a bills tracker and savings tracker to help keep your finances on goal
  • track hydration, fruits & veggies and a special orange box to check off when you do something each day that brings you joy (self-care is vital!)
  • project planning pages to help you keep group projects on schedule (six total!)
  • blank pages for notes
  • page for birthdays/anniversaries, future planning and goal setting
  • dedicated space to keep track of things you want to explore (restaurants, books, TV shows, products, websites, and more!)
  • body tracker to help you keep your fitness goals on track
  • AND the best part is, each weekly spread contains useful Nurse Facts to help you rise to the top of the class!
  • printing instructions sent with purchase (avg cost $23 utilizing recommended printer, or you can print yourself)

Currently we are selling the 2018 planners AND an undated more generic (but still beautiful) version if you’re ready to start organizing and planning right now!

    Hello,
    Nessa told me how awesome your calendar is and I would love to buy one from you. Do you have any available for the entire year of 2015? I see on your site that you have one that goes through Aug 2015. Thanks so much!

      The one on the website (titled Jan 2015) is for the full year. And you can get it printed for cheap at 9centcolorcopies.com.
      Good luck with school!

    Does the planner start in January, or in the fall? I thought I read somewhere that you could choose the start date of the planner. Yes?
    Thank you!

      It starts in January…I had originally planned to do a rotating start, but then time got away from me! I’ll have January and July starts from here on out.
      Thank you!

        Hi there! Will you have a download for a July start? I already bought your original planner, but it ends in June. Would like to order another, please.

            Hi there! The download shown above – does it begin with a 2016 month and then go through December 2017?

          1. DeDe

            OH, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I truly enjoy this calendar!! You have done a fantastic job! I look forward to buying it after May! Makes nursing school so much more easier when I’m organized 🙂

    Hi! Do you have an already printed version of the planner? And if not, how many pages would you say there is in a planner? Just so I can get an estimate on how much it would cost to print it out at a local store in my area.

    Thanks!

      Hi there,
      No, I don’t offer a pre-printed yet…but hope to for 2017! You can get it pritned at 9centcolorcopies.com for less than $25 (and I think that includes a cover, coil and shipping!). I’ve heard they do really good work!
      Hope that helps!

      It’s about 85 pages…SUPER expensive to take to Kinkos or Staples…either print at home or send to a place like 9centcolorcopies!

      Hi Leyah,
      I apologize for not seeing this sooner. Someone just posted that they had it printed at http://www.9centcolorcopies.com (printed, coiled, covered and shipped) for $23. That is a ridiculously good deal. I would NOT recommend taking to a Kinkos or anything…SUPER SUPER SUPER expensive. Nothing against Kinkos or Staples, but it’s crazy expensive!

    I bought it about a week ago on Etsy and sent the file to 9cent. They replied … in 1 minute! Gave the estimate, printed and shipped the same day. I was literally shocked. They are based in Canada, but I received it in 2-3 days (with the weekend). The total price for printing, coiling, covering with shipping to Texas was $22.94!

    I don’t start school till end of August but wanted to have a new planner and just practice using it for my needs. So far I’m very happy!

    Thank you Nurse Mo!

    So, I really love your planner, but I was trying to see about getting the half size. When I look at your Etsy I’m not entirely sure what traits the full size and half size share, and whether I could get any of the inserts in the half size? I’m sorry, I’m sure you have some information on this somewhere I just couldn’t find it. Thanks so much!

    Reply
    1. Nurse Mo Post author

      There is no half-size version of the nursing school planner at all…sorry! The half-size planner you see on Etsy is different in many ways…it is undated (which is great since you can start at any time), doesn’t have the “nursing” facts on it, doesn’t have project pages for organizing group projects, does not include the budget tracker or the yearly calendar. It does include space for lists, which is great…it’s more bare bones than the nursing student version, but still really great! You should be able to look at the photos on Etsy to see what the differences are. I hope that helps!

      I’m not sure what inserts you are referring to, but I can tell you that at this time I am not in the process of re-sizing anything…so the size you see is the size it is. 🙂

    I LOVE THIS. As a new student nurse this fall with three little ones at home, this will help tremendously with keeping everything strait. Are there any stickers with this?

      Hi Randi,
      It doesn’t come with any stickers and I don’t have any available at this time. Maybe in a few weeks when life slows down.

    Hello,
    I have contacted that website you recommend to print coil and ship the planner. Do you have a link you could send me for the 2016 year version? I need to send them a link and looking at your site I can’t find a direct one to send them. Thank you!

    Hi Nurse Mo! Absolutely love the planner! I have the 2015-June 2016 planner. I get tons of compliments! Keeps me incredibly organized in nursing school! I know the new calendar begins Jan 2016. Do you have one that I can purchase right after my current one ends, in June 2016? Or would be able to purchase one for July 2016 continuing for a year? Thank you so much!!!!

    1. Nurse Mo Post author

      I am hoping to have one for July 2016-June 2017…guess I’d better get busy! I am playing around with the idea of making a half-size one, but just am not sure if it will work. Hmmm…

      Sorry…I don’t do custom orders. I get asked this all the time, though! These planners take HOURS to create, so the only way it makes sense from an economic standpoint is to make them for a general audience. It would probably take me about 60 hours to make a custom planner…and at my freelance rate that would cost thousands…pretty sure no one will pay that (even though they are super awesome!) I do have one that is UN-DATED so you can start anytime. It’s slightly different, but the same concept. I’ll look and see if I have any left (it is pre-printed and ready to go!).

    If you can print the pages at home, you can take your stack to Fedex/KINKOS and they spiral bound it for me with clear front and back covers for about $5. Be sure to print double sided ; )

        Hello Nurse Mo! Your planner is AMAZING!!! I love the way it is set up and I most especially love that I am able to plan my whole month and see all the events in 1 single page without having to flip through pages back and forth. Thank you so much!

    First off, I think this is a great idea & I’m so happy I’ve stumbled across your page! Is the $29.99 planner available on this website the actual printed nursing version that can be sent to me? Thanks!

    Reply
    1. Nurse Mo Post author

      Hi Darian,
      I MIGHT have two printed ones left…I need to check my inventory in the morning. If I do, then they will go up for sale on the Etsy site…(not the link here). So, check the Etsy site on Wednesday and if I have any, that’s where they’ll be. After those are gone, then I’ll only have the PDF ones ( which you can have printed at a couple of places for pretty cheap if you don’t want to print it yourself.).Hope that helps!

      I “might” have two extras laying around. I will verify tomorrow, so keep an eye out! I’ll put them on the Etsy store if I have any extra. After those are gone, it’s just the PDF versions until I print more for the January planners.
      Thanks for checking!

    Are you officially out of planners LOL? I bought the PDF, but would love to nab an already printed one since I live nowhere near anywhere to bind it.

      Hi Kristie,
      You can have it printed at 9centcolorcopies.com…they’ll print and bind it for you. Their website is under construction, but you just email them your order. Email to the Vancouver office (you’ll see it on the website).
      Good luck with school!!

    Do you or anyone else have some photos of the printed version of the planner from 9centcopies? I’m just tickled with excitement to get it (already ordered), but really would like Live Photos of their work and didn’t think to ask them before purchase, but texture and thickness of pages within? Thanks!!!

    Going to use it for second semester starting in a couple weeks and see how it goes!

    Oh and help with two major fears! Med surg and pharm! What is the big picture? What’s the problem or why are they the most dreaded? The books etc always look like rocket science at first and then eventually they seem routine and not THAT bad. Although, I already knew the majority of skill etc for first semester as I was an active duty corpsman, but second semester will be full of detailed info that wasn’t necessary for pt care I provided while active. Keep them alive was the point or keep them fit for duty, not so in depth as far as pharmacological aspects or specific disease related/lab related information.

      Hi Sam…I think there might be some pictures of it on my Twitter feed if you want to dig back a bit. But, I can tell you that people seem to be pleased with their work, if that helps!

      Med Surg and Pharm are dreaded because they’re pretty heavy classes….loads of info and tricky exams! Pharm can involve a lot of memorization, which could take a lot of time. Hope that helps!

    just bought mine from etsy and ordered from the 9cent copy place : ) so excited! I start nursing school in august, but still finishing up my last A&P and micro over the summer so will start using it sooner!

    My only question was, you’d said its supposed to be double sided but I didn’t see that option in the directions/settings for 9cent copies … not really worried about it as I’m sure it functions fine as a single page … more just curious

    Reply
    1. Nurse Mo Post author

      When it prints as a book it is double-sided automatically…let me know if you have any issues so I can make sure the instructions are clear…but no one else has had issues.

    Hi,
    Is there a bundle that we can purchase that includes all of the additional bundles and information sheets (electrolytes, etc.) or do you have to separately add them to the ‘original planner’ instead?

    Reply
    1. Nurse Mo Post author

      Hi there!
      The planner includes all the “tracking” items (bills, etc…) and the electrolytes are separate. Hope that helps!

    I may be a little retarded but I just purchased this planner and love it. However, the the pages that showes calendar view printed out backwards. The end of the month page is before the beginning of the month. How can I fix that?

    Reply
    1. Nurse Mo Post author

      That would have something to do with your printer settings and I’m not able to help you with that. The best way to fix it is to look up how to print items using the particular printer/PDF reader you are currently using.

      Please report back so you can help others who might have the same issue!

    Hi there! I love the look of your planner. I’m a planner junkie and have bought several this summer that just don’t seem to fill the bill (including a stab at bullet journaling – which I’m pretty sure I won’t have TIME to do once I start school.) So, I’m starting the nursing program in one week and am – again – looking for something better when I stumbled on your planner…. I’m curious, what are the colorful little boxes on the page where you indicate that you can keep tracking lists for each area of your life? there are, I believe, 18 little boxes for each day of the week, blues and greens and one final salmon color. I hope it’s not obvious to everyone in the world but me…. Thanks!!!

    Reply
    1. Nurse Mo Post author

      Hi Christine!
      Those little boxes are to ensure you keep taking GREAT care of yourself while you’re in school…the blue ones are for water, the green ones are for fruits/veggies and the orange one is for something that brings you JOY! You mark them off as you go along your day to ensure you are doing your best for YOURSELF during this very busy and stressful time 🙂
      Hope that helps!

    Hi! I officially start nursing school at the end of this month and I’m beyond excited!! I currently keep a planner but I’m not super committed to my layout, but it’s in a travelers notebook, which I am very committed to lol. I was wondering if any of your followers had this printed out and bound travelers notebook insert style, and if so, how well it worked for them.

    Reply
    1. Nurse Mo Post author

      I don’t know what a traveler’s notebook is…but if it’s not 8.5×11, then it definitely wouldn’t work. Maybe someone here will chime in that knows what a traveler’s notebook is! Sorry I’m not more help 🙂

    Nurse Mo,

    I’m starting my BSN program in Jan. My school (UNLV) distributed your Thrive Guide to all Spring ’18 admits at our contract signing. That little book is PACKED with valuable information. I love it! It’s already brought my anxiety level way down, just knowing I’m equipped with your valuable insights & tips. This planner is all that I’ve been looking for throughout my Gen Ed. schooling. A way to keep track of EVERYTHING in life that my brain isn’t always good at keeping up with on its own. I’m ordering as soon as Fin. Aid comes in!
