Worth a read

I am on the one month line of starting nursing school & attempting to sponge up any tips for this journey. I have heard many a suggestions to start study groups. This has never worked well for me in the past & I was stressed that it would hinder me in nursing school. It was a relief to finally hear someone say that study groups are a waste of my time & my success is not dependent on them. Then provide alterative ways to study that would be better used in my limited time. I have been practicing nclex questions this entire summer, & happy to hear that this is how you succeed in nursing school. Opposed to the many peers that told me I was wasting my time doing so.
I have added a few more things to do before school starts because of this book. As well as essential items to buy before school starts that will make a difference. I am also excited about the additional resources & planner mentioned in the book & will report back if they are useful!
Thank you for the tips & suggestions, I would recommend to any new nursing student/new nursing grad.

A must read for all nursing students!

I am so grateful I I discovered this amazing guide when searching for nursing books on audible. Maureen’s tips are extremely helpful, Realistic, and will give you an edge when starting nursing school. I finished reading it or listening to it rather, and I definitely think a second listen is in line. I also shared with some of my fellow classmates. The website is extremely helpful as well.A big thank you for publishing and recording this little gem.

Awesome resource

This is a great book for people who are not so familiar with the healthcare setting before they come to nursing school. The author explains a lot about what to expect about the clinical setting and a nurse's work flow. These were things I was anxious about all throughout my first semester so I wish I had this book sooner. She talks about what to expect in your skills classes too. I am in my last semester of nursing school now but I still found this book very helpful and would recommend. The audiobook is nice because you can always give it in a listen if you're feeling discouraged and hear "you got this"

Short, practical, good narration

The tips and advice given in this audio book are pretty concise, but it's almost all actionable and useful. The narrator is easy to listen to, and made listening enjoyable and easy.

I'll definitely listen to it again as nursing school approaches.

Must buy and listen to before and during every semester

Amazing quick read that will change my life as a full time single mother of 3 who commutes to nursing school. Wish I would have found this last semester!!!!! I managed straight As but it wasn’t pretty. I’m now excited to start this semester because of these tips! It really is an outline to a great life while managing success in nursing school. I will listen to this before the start of every semester going forward.
