3 Tips to Boost Your Nursing Grades

3 Tips to Boost Your Nursing Grades

What are your tips to get throug Nursing School?

Ani Burr | Scrubs Magazine

Albert Einstein once said that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. With all the classes and care plans and tests, it’s easy to get into a study rut, studying the way that makes you feel most comfortable. But if you keep studying that way, and you’re grades aren’t improving … change it up! Don’t drive yourself insane by studying the same way over and over again if it isn’t helping you understand the information.

So what do you do when you’re not up to par with your grades? Whether it’s that you aren’t maintaining your GPA for scholarships or financial aid, or you’re collecting enough C’s to make your own Coach bag, something’s got you stuck – but how do you get out? Here are three ways to help yourself out of the sticky-grade situation.

1. Learn how you learn

I’ve found that one of the most important things to think about before figuring out how to study is figuring out how you learn. If you learn by repeating information, try reading it, and then teaching it to a family member. If you learn by hearing information, try recording the lecture and listening to it in the car, or having a class mate teach you the information during a study session. If you are like me and are a visual learner, it might help to write out your notes.

Personally, I have to write them over and over and over again until my hand cramps up and I’ve practically re-written the book. It’s not always the most practical way of studying, and it’s definitely not the fastest, but it works for me, and so I do it, even when it’s driving me crazy. Some schools offer classes to find out what type of learner you are, or you can do some quick research online, but finding out how you absorb information will help you figure out how to tackle the books.

And then borrowed and also by eventually take Mr. Zhang grassland the complex slowly silk,http://www.lvoutletfactory.com/, but also the inherent prejudices and patterns,http://www.mcmworldwidely.com/, over and over again washed and baptism. Has always been considered the most difficult to deal with people in China,Coach Factory Outlet Online, Zhang Chengzhi many people in the industry and even some unreasonable. On the other hand,http://www.northfaceioutletonline.net/, the style of Zhang Chengzhi's unique "idealism temperament" is imitated by many people,MCM Worldwide Outlet Online, and even worship. I also wrote before,Gucci Shoes Factory, Hung evaluation of a work standard,http://www.gucci-lvshoesfactory.com/, or give people thinking,Monster Headphones Outlet Online, or a big laugh. Needless to say,Coach Outlet Online, I have seen the works,Gucci Shoes Factory, it belongs to the former. He expected his readers that "young people to find meaning for the youth.
