5 BEST TIPS to get the most out of your time at nursing school!

It’s been awhile since I was studying, but boy do I remember the angst of trying to cram it all in for a test or finding the time to finish off an essay!


I think we can all agree that studying does not rank high on the list of “fun things” to do and it is incredible what you can get done around the house when you are meant to be studying.

I can remember times when I was supposed to be studying but instead, I would scrub the bathtub or rearrange the linen cupboard or sort out my Tupperware. Anything to get out of actually have to sit and STUDY!

Procrastinating was truly my best friend at that time and my house was really clean, yay! However, cleaning your house does not pass any exams or get you a degree so I had to find ways to make studying work for me.

Here are 5 tips that worked for me!

1. Plan to study

Allocate specific time slots for yourself to study.

If I told myself that I would study ALL DAY Saturday for example, chances were I would procrastinate and not get much done.

What worked for me was to allocate say 2 hours in the morning when I was at peak productivity and actually study for those 2 hours. And if I had scheduled it in, I had to do it!


2. Take regular breaks

Take small breaks often.

Your mind can only focus for so long at a time and if you’re trying to study something not very interesting to you, chances are your mind will start to wander.

Take small breaks, get out of the room, change environment if only for 5 minutes at a time.


3. Use Visual flow charts/study cards

If you are a visual or practical person, chances are that you are if you’re studying to become a Nurse, use flow charts or study cards to remember things easier.

I found that when I used different colors or images, things would just stick a lot easier!


4. Organize study groups with friends

This has got the potential to be the biggest procrastinating event the world has ever seen but if you and you’re friends are serious about getting it done, a study group can be super helpful.

Studying with people in the same course as you is great, you’re all on the same page and need to pass the same exams!

Just remember not to get off track and then waste your time.


5. Snack

Be sure to stock up on your favourite snacks.

I should be telling you to get the good “brain snacks” but to be honest, whatever you want to snack on to get you through studying is probably the best snack.

No one wants to chew on a celery stalk while trying to figure out how Betablockers work.

It’s just not a thing.

These are the things you will need handy for when you take your short breaks. Also drink plenty of water!


Nursing school is not a joke, it’s hard work! I hope these tips may help you if only a little, to get through those exams and assignments.

Remember, it takes a special person to become a nurse and YOU are that special person.

I am cheering you on, whether you’re studying or not!

  • Jenny I am happy to see you reaching out to other nurses. I am an old school nurse so we didn’t have access to social media. Also it was said that nurses ate their young. However, it’s great that you are moving in a positive direction. Thank you for sharing. I wish you continued success. Be well.
