    00:00 Hello and welcome to our nursing school survival course.

    00:04 The goal of this course is to give you an idea of what nursing and nursing school could look like, if this is a career that you would like to explore, while also helping you avoid the many mistakes and mishaps that I made during my own adventure through nursing school. And very fortunately for you, I made many of them.

    00:20 So you have a lot to learn.

    00:22 I'm sure if you've done any looking into nursing, you'll know how incredibly complicated nursing likes to make things.

    00:28 So if you're just beginning in the nursing school process, and you're confused and overwhelmed with all the words and what they mean, it's not just you, I promise.

    00:36 Heck, if you are a few years into this journey, and you're still like, "What is happening?" Also, not alone there, friend.

    00:43 I have been doing this for over ten years, and sometimes I'm still like, "What? What is that? What do those letters mean?" It's a mess.

    00:50 But I've learned a few things along the way, and I've slapped my best advice for nursing students together here.

    00:56 And I hope this can be a resource that you reference all the points along your nursing journey. You can hop back to it if you need.

    01:02 And if you're very, very ambitious, you can always just watch them all right now.

    01:07 If you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comments below, and we will get back to you shortly.

    01:11 So what is this course actually about? It's everything I wish I would have known about nursing school, the NCLEX, grad school, early nursing, all that stuff.

    01:19 I've organized it into sections related to topics that should allow you to hop to the topics that are the most relevant to you right now.

    01:26 Or if you're feeling super ambitious, you can go back and watch the entire thing to kind of see what does the road ahead look like.

    01:33 We will start in this section looking at the very basic overview of nursing.

    01:37 What do nurses actually do? Where can they work? What does the schedule look like? Is this a family friendly job? All the basics things that you should know before deciding if this is a career that you would actually like to investigate more.

    01:49 Are you ready to start? Yes? Perfect. I will see you in the next module, where we will cover what nurses actually do.

    01:56 See you there.
