Hello and welcome to our nursing school
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.
So you have a lot to learn.
I'm sure if you've done any looking into
nursing, you'll know how incredibly
complicated nursing likes to make things.
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.
Heck, if you are a few years into this
journey, and you're still like, "What is
happening?" Also, not alone there, friend.
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.
But I've learned a few things along the way,
and I've slapped my best advice for nursing
students together here.
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.
And if you're very, very ambitious, you can
always just watch them all right now.
If you have any questions, feel free to leave
them in the comments below, and we will get
back to you shortly.
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.
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
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
We will start in this section looking at the
very basic overview of nursing.
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.
Are you ready to start? Yes?
Perfect. I will see you in the next module,
where we will cover what nurses actually do.
See you there.
