Nursing school survival guide presentation: tips for success in nursing school and critical thinking

Hello! I started this blog as a complement to to help other nursing students with resources and information that helped me or that i wish i had. Nursing school is different from a lot of other disciplines and a lot is expected of you.If you fail a course by half a point you are in trouble so its very important to do well above the passing grade on every course to be on the safe side.

The first thing therefore is to strategize about how you will use your time, how you will study and what you need to know to succeed. I will post 2 things here ; a video presentation for survival strategies in nursing school and another for critical thinking which is very important in nursing school and Nclex. Watch all the nursing videos and for more resources for nursing students check
