    This book was a lifeline!!!!

    This book was a lifeline for me during the past two years that I was in nursing school. Kelli Dunham covered every topic imaginable, and I refered to it every time I got discouraged or wanted to quit. A must have for every nursing student. I can't thank Kelli enough.

    What an awesome investment!

    This book was so informative! I can't believe the amount of info Kelli covered; from being a male in the profession to hints on controlling stress, test taking skills, what to expect in clinicals, and yes, the dreaded NCLEX. Even if you aren't going for RN, any type of nursing student/family member would benefit. I am a 1st year (so far 1/2 through my first semester) student and I couldn't pay a psychic to provide this much truth about nursing school. Phenomenal book. Its a good idea to allow your 'support' team (family/husband/wife,etc) to read this so that they too, can understand what exactly you'll be going through for the next 2-5 or more years of your nursing studies. Good Luck! Definately recommend! She's hysterically funny too!
