Study Skills and Test Strategies for the New Nursing Student

I Want to be a New Nursing Student

This slide deck gave a thorough review not just for being a nursing student, but a student in general. Even though there were specifics for nursing and patients, there were tips and tricks included here that can be applied to any field of study. A lot of the general tips revolved around good habits and common sense. I liked the motivational aspects too. And I appreciated the theory of how we learn; there are differeces and similarites among people when it comes to learning. Examples of learning styles covered the right vs. left brain folks, and the visual vs. auditory learners. I enjoyed the philosophical introduction, where Confucius was quoted, and I appreciated the definition of critical thinking.

I was surprised by some of the testing strategies, such as, if all else fails on multiple choices tests, pick B or C. I think the point about eliminating the obvious wrong answers first for multiple choice tests then narrowing down your choice to the MOST correct answer is a very helpful tip.

How to take effective notes, how to prepare for a lecture, what to do during and after a lecture all are invaluable skills for all types of studies, not just nursing. Managing stress, eating right, getting enough sleep, and time management are not just good skills for students, but useful life-long habits. If you live your life following all the tips in this presentation, you'll have many advantages toward success. There was a lot of information in one slide deck in an easy-to-digest size (length) and written in easy, understandable vocabulary.
