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

2. Talk it out

Another important factor to consider is talking to the teacher. Unfortunately, I think a lot of people tend to avoid teachers outside of the classroom. Talking to your professor really shows them that you are trying hard and concerned about your grades, not just slacking off and not caring. After all, nurses have to care about what they do! Obviously you care, otherwise you wouldn’t have bothered getting here in the first place, but your professors want to know that you still care and that you want to succeed at becoming the best nurse you can be. And you never know – striking up a conversation could be the start to a potential extra credit assignment.

3. Buddy up

Yes, study groups are helpful, and yes, your classmates and friends want to help you out, but that’s not always the way to go. Try meeting up with someone from your class (or even a class about you) that knows their stuff. See if they will help you review. Chances are they’ll be open to it since teaching you the information is going to help them too! But by working with someone you’re less familiar with, you’re more likely to stay focused. Plus, studying with someone new means learning the information in a different way, which helps your brain start to process and apply the information.

Sometimes life catches up with us and our study habits go out the window, or we get stuck in a studying rut and can’t find a way out. But just because you’re having to work harder to keep the grades doesn’t mean you don’t deserve to be here! I’ve hear too many stories of people changing their minds about nursing because a teacher didn’t believe in them. Believe in yourself, remember why you want to be a nurse, and apply some new strategies to your studying. It’s not going to be easy, but you can make it – and make the grades! Good luck!

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.
