If you’re a nursing student (or about to be) there’s one thing that comes up over and over and over…electrolytes. Having an understanding of how electrolytes work, why they’re important, and what to do when they’re off-kilter is a huge part of your job. In this guide, we’ll take a quick look at some electrolyte pearls of wisdom.
This episode debuts something I’m really excited about….if you’ve ready my book, Nursing School Thrive Guide, you know that I am a big fan of learning in a variety of ways. So…one of the things I did when I was a student was to record audio quizzes so I could basically quiz myself on topics while I went for a walk, did the laundry, cleaned house….whatever. It freed me from the prison of my desk and used a different part of my brain as well. Win-Win!
Nothing, and I mean, NOTHING gets a nursing student more worked up than NCLEX questions. I have very clear memories of sitting in the testing room making my best “WTF is this” face as I worked my way through the questions. And yes, that’s the exact same face I made the entire time I was taking the actual NCLEX and my CCRN exam…so if you think these style of questions are ever going to go away…you are sadly so very very wrong.
Who doesn’t love a good set of accessories? No, I’m not talking about bracelets and hair ties…I’m talking school supplies! What do you need and what’s the best way to use them?
I don’t know what the official name for these are, but I call them tabbies. They’re the plastic page tabs/flags that you can write on with a Sharpie. They look like this and are easily the item I used the most in nursing school.
The question, “What kind of classes will I take in nursing school?” is one that comes up pretty often…and rightly so. Nursing school classes are a bit of a mystery and not knowing what to expect certainly adds to the anxiety and nervousness. Never fear, I’ve never let you down before and I’m not about to start now!
