7 Predictors of Success in Nursing School

Predictors of success in nursing school include strong performance in courses, especially anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology. In order to do a great job preparing for nursing school you must work hard to stay on top of it all. With the following seven habits, you will be successful.

  1. Manage your time – Balance classes, studying, work, and personal obligations. Break each day into blocks of time and determine what is the most important for each block.
  2. Study smart – Cramming for a test will not work. You must understand the material plus how to apply it in different situations. To study smart try to: Avoid distractions, Review classwork before you got to class, Practice by doing some practice test questions, Give yourself enough time
  3. Ask for help – It is not a sign of weakness or failure, so do it!
  4. Focus – Organize your study space, turn off the phone, TV and music when you study.
  5. Make realistic goals – It is best to set aside time everyday for reading and studying
  6. Be proactive – Plan ahead and stay on top of assignments
  7. Reward yourself – Preparing for nursing school is not easy and you will probably get tired of studying. So, set a reachable goal and reward yourself when you reach it.
