Frequently asked questions about study skills

1. How do you study effectively for nursing school?

Effective nursing school study tips should include continuous practice in four specific areas: 

  • Time management 
  • Strategic note taking 
  • Reading material before and after lectures
  • Teach back method 
  • Study practice questions 
  • Accountability/Study partner(s)

Do not allow your limited time to get ahead of you. The management of your time plays a key factor in your career as a student. Too often we see students waste their valuable time focusing on the wrong study material and miss the opportunity to strengthen their knowledge in their weaker areas. 

At Lecturio, you’ll find integrated recall questions in all videos to enhance your active learning. Our courses provide you with nursing school study tools and tips that’ll ensure mastery in any areas of your choosing.

2. How do you memorize in nursing school?

While in nursing school you should understand early on that memorization is not the best practice when it comes to effective study tools. Nursing school is designed to prepare you for real-world experiences and the best practice care for your patients. This preparation includes assessing, analyzing, interpretation, and application. It is not just holding space in your memory bank.

In our video course “Study Skills: Learn How to Study Nursing” you will be guided through successful nursing study tips that’ll best equip you throughout your journey as a nursing student as you learn these skills.

3. How to stop procrastinating in nursing school?

As in anything, procrastinating can be a weakness for us. Lecturio’s video course “Study Skills: Learn How to Study Nursing” guides students through the exciting journey of becoming a registered nurse. This course explains how our brains process information, tips and tricks on how to stop procrastinating and the common myths about learning.

4. What’s the hardest part of nursing school?

We hear how difficult nursing school can be, but no one can say what one thing makes it so difficult. That’s because there isn’t one exact thing that makes nursing school so hard. Here are a few things we can all agree contributes to the challenge of nursing school: 

  • Nonstop assignments 
  • Managing one’s time 
  • Finding a balance between personal and student lifestyles 
  • Staying motivated 
  • Sleep deprivation
  • Staying active
  • Clinical rounds 
  • The stress of the NCLEX 

What one student may find to be hard may not be the same for the next student. Here at Lecturio, we take pride in providing you with credible resources and tools that’ll help make nursing school less challenging for you.

Jumpstart Your Study Skills (Nursing)

by Alvin R. on 2019-12-20 for Study Skills: Learn How to Study Nursing

I am learning how to learn again. I have been having difficulty studying for the exam. I failed the first write and i am hoping to rewrite once I recover from the car accident in May 2019, hopefully in May next year.

is there any chance to reduce costs from 300$ per year and maybe pay monthly and not full year??

by Efraim N. on 2019-12-09 for Study Skills: Learn How to Study Nursing

the price is high and study materials in pathology are not understandable however to overview and few videos i watched were absolutely perfect so in score between 1 to 5 you are getting 4.5 I think that the missing part is adding some related place for more info on a specific topics for better understanding AND i really want to say thanks and appreciation for this initiative and creating this product !!!! keep on the good work there!!

Just what I was looking for!

by Jhevon M. on 2019-11-30 for Jumpstart Your Study Skills: In a Nutshell (Nursing)

Very informative. Personally I struggled with studying for a very long time and have been seeking to understand how I could overcome this challenge and this series was short but very detailed and offered practical examples I could use. Some of these ideas were not new but coupled with its significance and new perspective makes me feel inspired and eager to apply it. Thank you so much, Ms. Lawes.

Excellent!!!

by CHRISTIAN U. on 2019-11-14 for Study Skills: Learn How to Study Nursing
