Overview

For many, nursing school can be a stressful time – there is a wealth of new information to learn, exams to master, clinical rotations in hospitals to experience, and the pressure to balance it all. How to Survive Clinical is a pocket-sized guide featuring quotes, anecdotes, and advice from both recently graduated nursing students and current professors that will help new students face the academic and emotional challenges that shape all aspects of their nursing school experience. Nursing school instructors (who are also nurses themselves) reveal what they wish students would know before entering the classroom, and dispense practical advice only they have as experienced nurses who have been through the RN process post-clinical. With its breadth of first-hand tips on how to remain organized, suggestions on which extracurriculars to participate in, wisdom on how to handle the emotions that come with working in a hospital setting, and much more, How to Survive Clinical is an ideal guide for every nursing student.

    Good book

    This is a real good book. It has thoughts from students and instructors. It sometimes repeats ideas from students but thats okay because they are nusing students and they are just wanting to give other nursing students advice. I would recommend this to students not sure what they are getting into and just want some idea of what being a nusing student is like.
