Your book is such a God-send! I cannot thank you enough for writing it!!! I knew I needed some kind of blueprint, but how to put one together was the question. Now with your book I can relax a bit knowing I will be organized!! There is so much information on the Internet and it is too easy to bog ones head down with too much and that is why I LOVE LOVE LOVE  your book!! -Sandi

Hello there! My husband bought me your book, Nursing School Thrive Guide, for Christmas and I just finished it. I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!  I am so glad that your book offers advice for every area of nursing school because while it seems like it’s going to be overwhelming, it also gives me hope that I will not only survive, but I will Thrive! 🙂 -Keri


If you are starting nursing school and are fairly clueless about what to expect, buy this book! -Brittany


Hi, i bought your book for thriving in nursing school and I love it!!  -Nastajjea


I have looked into a number of books that I could read that would help ease my anxiety and prepare me before class started. I’m so glad I heard about Maureen’s E-Book. It is a well written, information packed page turner. It has great personal advise and step by step guided schedules. Maureen addresses the different styles of learning and how to incorporate each one into studying. She also provides great resources to help. After reading her book I can’t wait to start classes. I know I have a good foundation of what to expect and how to start my studies. -Billie


I have been out of nursing school for around four years now but the memory of how intimidating and confusing it is when you start is still fresh in my mind. The Nursing School Thrive Guide is something I wish I had when I was starting out. The information in this easy to read guide is invaluable and incredibly accurate! Organization and the ability to plan ahead are must have skills to be successful in school and this guide will tell you what you need to know. I have recommended this book to quite a few people starting nursing school and it will helpful to anyone that has already started as well. -Trista

Planner reviews

Used this planner last year for nursing school and look forward to using this version on September. Great way to organize all exams and assignments. Thanks! -emeff11 on Etsy


This is definitely the best planner out there for nursing school and for me in general- I love how the days are arranged all together on one side and split into three general parts rather than hourly or not broken down at all. -Liz


Great planner to organize everything in life! With this I can easily keep track of things I need to do. Beautiful layout and the extra pages are great! Great planner that I recommend to everyone!!! -Leyah

I’m so excited to use this planner! It arrived exactly on time! It’s everything I’ve ever wanted in a planner: helpful, organized, colorful, cute, and perfect! I’m so happy! -Brianna


I absolutely love this calendar. It has all the things you need to keep the chaos of nursing school and your home life organized to perfection. I wish I would have found this last year. Nevertheless, I am thankful to have it for my final semester. It doesn’t have the tabs for the months but I cut some out on my own, my personal preference. Hands down best planner for nursing student A+++++ -Jarrett


I love this planner! There is so much in the planner that helps you plan and keep track of everything. This was worth the buy! -Elyssa

I love this planner! I have been using ELCP for years, but it wasn’t going to cut it in nursing school. This will work out great, thank you. -Stacey


I bought this planner as a nursing student who is trying to Get It Together!!!! I love this. It is perfect in every way. School starts this next week and I can’t wait to start using it 🙂 -Emmy


I have spent years trying to find a planner that helped me to hold together my insane schedule between work, academic life, and my home responsibilities. For me, the most critical (and appreciated) aspect of this planner is the vertical orientation of the days of the week (right hand page). Too many planners list the days horizontally, and my brain does not process information that way. The colors and design are lovely also. Thank you for a great product! -Whitney

Thank you so much! The information you took time to provide is so very much appreciated. I am currently in Adults Med/Surg class & clinical, and our lecture instructor is very much M.I.A.

Thank you so much for the study tools and sharing your knowledge. -Grace
